Hello Sweet Cheer: May 2017


Titus Matthew | 11 Months

A G E: 11 months old

W E I G H T: 21 lbs 7.5 oz, 63rd percentile

L E N G T H: 29 inches, 37th percentile

S I Z E: Size 4 diapers and 12 months in clothing! For some reason, pajamas seem to run small so he's pretty much in all 18 months there, otherwise mostly 12 months!

E Y E S & H A I R: Dark brown!

S L E E P I N G: Still a great sleeper! Goes to bed about 7:30pm (give or take) depending on if we are out or have anything going on in the evenings. He sleeps right through until 7 or 8am depending on the day! He has multiple "lovies" he sleeps with but can definitely go without them! He just likes something to cuddle with.

E A T I N G: Still on a pretty similar schedule/diet as he was last month. He has developed a bit of an aversion to chicken, lately. Which is irritating but I think it's just a phase because he used to love it! He is very clear about when he is finished eating. He either starts to rub his hands all over his tray (squishing his food) or he picks up pieces and drops them on the floor, usually watching them fall! Haha

We still do 3 bottles a day! Usually he takes about 6-10 ounces during the day (depending on how well he eats at breakfast and lunch) and 6-8 ounces before bed. I'm just starting to wonder how I'm going to make the transition away from bottles of formula to whole milk in sippy cups. He does great with sippy cups and loves to drink out of a straw!

M I L E S T O N E S:
-Has mastered the sign for "more"
-Walks while holding my fingers and loves it
-Walks with his push walker
-Still has 6 teeth, still working on two in the front on the bottom
-Makes the cutest kissy face
-Figured out how to open cabinets
-Started dancing and shaking his head to music
-Experienced his first Easter and loved his Easter basket from mama and daddy!

O U T I N G S: No new outings this month! But he'll get to experience the Omni Hotel in Dallas with mommy and daddy next weekend!

F A V  T O Y S/A C T I V I T I E S: He loves being out and about! He's all about riding in the shopping cart and having tons to observe. As far as toys, I think it's about time we rotate some out. But he's loving his walker right now and still loves his shape sorter! He enjoys using the bucket part and putting the blocks straight in (not through the shapes).

W O R D S/S O U N D S: Still saying Mama and Dada! Squeals, laughs, babbles, etc. We are working on using lots of baby sign language.

N I C K N A M E S: Titus boy, Titus Almightus, Sweet boy, Titer, Titer Almighter, Goose

F U N N Y  M O M E N T S: Looooves to dance and does it without being prompted when music comes on. So sweet!

Annnnd here are the outtakes... we had a pretty rough time getting him to sit there. He just kept trying to crawl away! Typical haha

Would've been a cute one if Daddy's arm wasn't in the middle of the picture!

And a photo round up from the the past month!

Opening my Mother's Day gift!

I really can't believe we're just a month away from our boy's first birthday! This year has flown by! Super thankful for his life and the blessing he is. The Lord has used motherhood to shape and mold me so much in the last 11 months, I can only imagine how much more He will mold me over the next 18+ years! We love you, Titus Boy!
