Liam - 11 Months

Liam's first trip to the Field Museum.

Liam at 11 months.

Halloween 2015

Highlights from this month: Liam, you went on your first trip to the Field Museum. There was one area where you could crawl around and play. You really enjoyed that part. It was kind of big month. You went trick-or-treating for the first time. You were a lobster this year, and we were the cooks. Haha

Weight: 23 pounds 8 ounces

Height: 29.5 inches at your 9 month appointment

Hair: You have blonde hair for now, but it looks like it's becoming darker.

Eyes: You have true blue eyes.

Clothes: You are in 18 month pants and 18 month or 2T shirts. We can get you to wear a hat if you are distracted. My favorite T-shirt we have for you is your Minion shirt that reads, "I'm sorry for what I said when I was hungry."

Eating: You are eating 6 to 8 ounces of milk in a bottle or sippy cup during the day, and you take a bottle in the evening and morning. I think you're becoming pickier with your food. I'm not sure though. Sometimes, you're into different fruits and vegetables, and other days, you won't touch certain food. You really like chicken.

Sleeping: You are still sleeping through the night! Yay! Most days, you go to bed at 8:30 p.m. and wake up 7:30 a.m. The last few days you have been surprising us and waking up at 5:30 or 6. You are taking two naps a day. You have one around 11 a.m. and the other around 2:30 p.m.

Milestones: Liam, you are so close to walking on your own! You are standing by yourself more and more, and we get excited when you take a few steps on your own. It's only a matter of time.

You started copying us. We were in the car the other day, and when I coughed, you coughed right after me. You even tried copying the cough exactly. Adorable!

A couple of weeks ago, I waved goodbye to you when we dropped you off at your Aunt Katie's house for the evening, and you waved back at me! :)

You are a pro at opening kitchen cabinets. It looks like we need to baby proof them pronto!

You have TWO TEETH coming in on the bottom! This is huge news. Your dad was the first to discover the two teeth poking through. I can't wait to see when they actually cut through. 

Likes: You love being outside and being around people. You love other kids. You will stare at other people and smile when they look at you. You're very social!

You like crawling around and exploring everything in site. You got your first cold this month. It was really sad for us to see you sick. You didn't have much energy. On Saturday, you perked up again after not feeling like yourself for a week and a half! Thank goodness.

Dislikes: You're pretty happy go lucky most of the time, but I will admit it, you loathe your car seat.

Outings: We went to Starved Rock with my family this month. You loved riding in the backpack for the first part of the day, and then you got uncomfortable. We had a great time hiking.

You went to the Field Museum for the first time. It was a lot of fun taking pictures of you exploring the different areas of the museum. I took some pictures of you and your dad in front of the T-Rex. Your dad gave you a kiss, and you gave him one right after he did it. It was adorable!
