11 months and so much more

Grayson turned 11 months on October 6th. Its hard to believe my baby will be a year old next month. He is learning so much right now. He took his first steps Sunday October 11th and I missed it. :( I was sitting next to his Nana and he was holding on to the coffee table. He let go and took a step or two to get to her without holding onto anything. I was looking at something on the computer and saw him at the corner of my eye walk but I thought he was holding onto something. I couldn't hardly believe that he did it! He hasn't tried since then.

On Monday October 12th I was sitting in the floor with him and he stood on his own without holding onto anything. He stood up and then slowly sat back down. I was amazed! So far he hasn't tried anymore. I'm so proud of him!

Here's my boy at 11 months.

-Towards the end of September Grayson started holding his ball with one hand. He used to be able to only hold it with both hands.
-He has 8 teeth now.
-He still doesn't like textured food. He prefers Stage 2 baby food.
-October 11th he tried the soup part of chicken & dumplings. I think he liked it.
-He tried mashed potatoes and a mashed up pinto bean. He didn't like either one. The bean was the worst. He has a serious gag reflex.
-He can reach things I never knew he could. Today I found out he can reach stuff on top of our dresser. More stuff for me to move!
-He loves it when you sneak up on him.
-He loves to be chased.

He is so much fun!!

Since I never wrote about his 9 month check up I'll go ahead and post his stats now. His appointment was on August 7th. He weighed 18lbs 14oz. He was 29 1/2 inches long. His head circumference was 18 1/4 inches. He was in the 23rd percentile for head, 87 for length, and 80 for his head. I need to measure him soon.

He goes for his 12 month check up November 10th.


  1. Aww, it won't be long and he'll be walking around.

  2. Oh my goodness! He is absoultely adorable! His dimples!! I can not believe that he is getting so big.
