Taylor's 11 Month Update

Taylor weighs approx 24 lbs now. I'm not sure how tall he is, but he has his 1 year check tomorrow so maybe they will measure him then.

He's comfortably in 12-18 months clothing now, although still wearing a few 9-12 bits too. his size 3 shoes are too small now, so I've bought him a few pairs of size 4, I still need to get him re-measured properly though.

We've dropped his bottles of formula now, he just has 6oz before bed time. He has a 4 oz bottle of cows milk in the morning and afternoon. He's still eating 3 meals a day really well, with a morning and afternoon snack. He's started turning his nose up to green veg such as green beans and broccoli which disheartened me a little as he ate lots when he first started weaning. Maybe his tastes are changing. I do hope he doesn't get fussy with vegetables like his big brother!

I dont want to tempt fate but he's sleeping lots better. He's sleeping right through to at least 5:30am then he starts to stir and wake and we bring him into our bed for the last hour or so where he just snuggles up and falls straight back to sleep till 6:30-7 at least. So we can't complain. He naps morning and afternoon although these are changing slightly at the mo. He never naps longer than 30 mins, but the past few days he's been waking after 10-15 mins.

Bedtime Routine...
We take him up for 'quiet time' in his bedroom about 6:30pm. Although Daddy forgets what quiet time means sometimes and thinks its 'lets make lots of noise and play' time! ;) Then he has his bath , dried, into sleep clothes, then he has his bottle while I read him a story, then he's into bed and usually falls straight to sleep at around 7pm. 

He's getting very clever and saying a lot more words now. This month he's started saying 'Yeh', 'Gone' and a few others. I think the biggest milestone is him sleeping better.

Until next month...

  2. What a lovely update, it sounds like he is growing very quickly. Wow to those first words, I don't think we have any yet. Your sleeping routine sounds lovely, we don't get any bedtime cuddles.

  3. Fantastic he's sleeping through the night - I love these update posts! My daughter is 4 months and though it's hard to imagine her at 11 months I know it will come around really quickly :) #binkylinky

  6. Awww he';s doing so well and I remember the early bringing baby into bed very well. His Daddy sounds like Zs Daddy, they think "winding down" means to start chucking them about :D

  7. Aww sounds like he is doing really well! Glad to hear he is sleeping better though must be tiring if he doesn't nap for long. Clever boy with the talking too! Thanks for linking with #MaternityMondays

  8. Oh wow how cute is he! He's doing so much, it scares me to think how quickly they get stronger and learn... but I like the thought of better sleeping habits!!! :-)
