11 months!

How is it possible that we are planning for Collin's 1st birthday already?! Our sweet and funny baby boy hit the 11-month mark this Tuesday.

After bath tonight, he was playing near his favorite upstairs location: the computer desk :)  It's close to his bedroom and the kids' bathroom, so while Sydney was still in the bath, we played nearby. I think there are few things cuter than a little one in his/her pajamas!

At 11 months, Collin:
  • is taking steps, but the record is only six at one time
  • can get up our stairs in what feels like 2 seconds
  • isn't saying much more than dada and mama (though his teacher swears he said bottle today - ha!)
  • wears some 12 month and some 18 month clothes
  • eats pretty much whatever Sydney eats, and still some baby food from time to time; favorites include any kind of beans, mandarin oranges, banana, pancakes, chicken, deli turkey & ham, yogurt, pears, and pickles
  • claps and waves at everything
  • is still a fabulous sleeper
  • smiles and laughs all the time
  • adores his big sister

We feel so lucky to be Collin's parents. He is an absolute joy. When he was first born, I questioned if life with two would ever feel easy. Well, I don't think "easy" is the word for it, but it certainly feels right :) We can't wait to celebrate his first Christmas next week and his first birthday in Virginia next month! Love you, buddy boy!!!
