In less than a month, my little dude is going to be a 1 year old!
I just can’t even believe it. In between a few tears here and there, party planning has officially begun. We will be traveling on Gio’s actual birthday so we have decided to post pone his birthday celebration by about 2 weeks so luckily it gives me a little extra time to plan while coping with the fact that I know longer will have a baby on my hands!
So what is new at 11 months old?? Let see…
Gio LOVES music… he dances along to any beat (he especially loves the Frozen sound track) and he also hums along to the music. It is the cutest thing. We have a wireless speaker that he just loves. He will crawl up to it, look at me and start clapping to let me know its time to put some beats on. Its absolutely adorable!
As far as food goes, he is back eating basically everything. We went through a brief picky period where I felt like I struggled to get him to try new foods or to eat any of his previous favorite foods. Now he actually wants to try everything I give him. He current favorites include (any type of) rice, spaghetti, raspberries & strawberries.
Sleeping has been a constant back and forth struggle. While he is teething I can basically expect to have him in my bed – he doesn’t handle the teething well at all. Once the teething is over it takes me a few days to get him back into his own crib again and then that typically lasts for about 2 weeks before he begins teething again… lol Its a vicious cycle but I have to say I love the cuddles so I can’t complain too much.
Gio’s favorite toys include lego’s and basically all of his big sister’s toys that he shouldn’t be playing with because of small parts. Watching Gio play with his toys is reminding me of when his big brother was younger – its so funny how similar they are and how different they both are/were at this age compared to their sister. Gio is constantly moving and getting into everything and wants to climb on anything and everything possible (including me!). He really brings me so much joy, I just can’t imagine my life without him.
These are a few of my favorite photos of my little man from this last month:
