11 Month Old

Another month!!!

Thomas is 11 months old!!

Stats: I have not weighed or measured him in a while...

Eating: Thomas is drinking formula 2-3 times a day.  Once a day I try to put 

Sleep: - Sleeping between 10-12hrs each night.  Sometimes longer but thats not the norm. 

Clothing: Thomas is wearing 12-18 month clothes.

Talking: Thomas talks all the time.  He is also starting to use sign language for "more" and "all done." He also blows kisses and gives high-fives. So many communication things are clicking this month! It is amazing to watch everything click. 

New Things: His sign language and communication skills for sure.  He is also eating almost anything we eat at dinner and lunch.  So he is getting all sorts of table foods now!

Big News!! & 200th post!!!

Post # 200!! Yay!!! What s fun life and 200 posts! But on to our big news!!! Well, I'm pregnant...again!!! :) That's right!!! Baby George #2 will be arriving in June 2013! I have had a few minor complications and even though I am only 9 weeks I have had 5 ultrasounds already and 6 doctor appointments. At the 8 week appointment they pretty much cleared me, saying everything is looking fine and better. So, I still have 1 more "specialist" appointment at 12 weeks to check up on everything but my doctor seems to think everything is fine.

A few family members and people have asked if this was planned or a surprise and we answer that by saying it was a, "oh that was fast!" haha. I knew I wanted at least my first 2 children close together in age but since I was still breastfeeding Thomas we weren't so sure that I would get pregnant so quickly again. Well, I did!! We are very excited and can't wait to meet this newest little addition to our family.

A few things that have been hard about this pregnancy:
- I had to stop breastfeeding Thomas and that was about the hardest thing I have had to do! My doctor told me it was best to wean him to formula. Thankfully he was 10 months old when I started the weaning process so he really only has about 1 1/2 months on formula before I would start weaning him to whole milk anyway.
- chasing a 10 month old has made this one harder. Before with T I was sitting at a desk and that made pregnancy a little easier.

A few things that have been easier about this pregnancy so far:
- I don't have to dress up for work everyday. Most days I am in workout pants and a T shirt!
- Naps!!! I nap or rest each time Thomas naps. This had been good for me but not good for having a clean house.  Haha.

I am sure there will be many more fun comparisons with the two different pregnancies! For now...I will leave you with a picture of our little one!! :)
