Every night I go to bed, I have thoughts swirling in my head. Things to do. Scrapbook pages I want to create. Gifts I want to make. Skills I want to learn. And, of course, daily happenings that I don't want to forget, but invariably will by tomorrow morning, only to pop up in a random thought weeks down the road. So, here I am. I may use this blog daily to empty my head and heart before cuddling up in my duvet, or as it may be, I may write in it once a month. Who knows. It is for me, but perhaps something I write or learn may spark a fire in someone else. Perhaps it may quiet a mind or make you feel like you are not alone out there. It is for me. But perhaps it is for you.

Nico: 11 Months

I recently found a journal entry, a list really, of what you were like at 11 months old.  My time to write and reflect about how amazing you are seems so limited, but at least we have this one.  Here we go, my happy boy:

  • words: dada, nana (food), uh oh, hi (sometimes)
  • like the slide, but swings go too fast for you
  • you stand up holding on to things and can let go and be on your own for a good 10 seconds
  • love climbing up stairs
  • follow Kai everywhere, laughing at everything he does
  • moving towards 1 nap a day, but right now you go between 4 and 4 1/2 hours between naps
  • throw your head back and laugh
  • love balls of all shapes and sizes
  • easygoing with everyone; forever smiling
  • wave in your own way - either with the whole arm facing forwards or turn your hand backwards to wave
  • bite everything, including sometimes your brother
  • becoming attached to your bedtime deer
  • communicate very clearly when you don't want something - yell loudly or push it away
  • beginning to enjoy feeding yourself
  • whack your head on the back of the (padded) highchair when you are eating, having fun moving it across the room with your forceful body slams
  • love music
  • shake your head side to side very fast to make yourself dizzy
  • flop your body and face into the mattress, looking for a reaction and trying to make us laugh
  • want to be part of everything we do, especially meal times
