Colin is 11 months!

Colin turned 11 months on July 18th! He is doing great; he is all over the place as usual! Such a funny and sweet little baby!

  • He loves Elmo, he hears the intro song and starts clapping and bouncing :)
  • He bounces when he hears any music actually.
  • His wave is hilarious, its more like he is raising his hand to ask a question, it also looks like he is in church raising his hand to say "Amen".
  • Has figured out how to pitch a major fit when he doesn't get his way.
  • He is showing some development of problem solving skills, and likes to figure things out.
  • He loves his bath time.
  • Likes to look at books.
  • He would much rather play with Carson's toys than any baby toys, the ball popper is his favorite; he also has started pushing around Carson's trucks and trains.
  • He has taken 3-4 steps at a time, so within a few weeks he will be a walker!
  • He now drinks whole milk instead of formula.
  • We turned his carseat around, and it really depends on the day if he likes it or not.
  • He really doesn't like baby food anymore, he just eats what we eat now, he can be picky at times.
  • He weighs 21 pounds - in 12 - 18 month clothing, size 4 diapers and size 3 shoe (he has really fat feet).
  • He now has a total of 6 teeth! Front 4 top ones and front 2 bottom ones. Rough month of sleep!
  • He loves to play wrestling with Daddy and Carson, he also loves for Carson to run from room to room and "scare" him.
  • He has started to point at things. He loves to point at the dogs, he laughs at them too.
  • He loves to play in the refrigerator and on the couch, and still loves the bathroom in general.
  • The boy climbs EVERYTHING, he is a little monkey!!!!!!!
  • He loves watching the baby/toddler music videos on YouTube, and if we put Baby Einstein on the TV he is glued!
  • He also got his first haircut this month, not a major change, we just cleaned up the edges so it wasn't so shaggy.
