We celebrated Drew’s first Easter in Cincinnati with the Greulich and Oberrecht families. We all had a great day.

11 months old today! Seriously – I swear I just had this little guy and here I am planning his first birthday party. Wow. Someone told me once – the days are long but the weeks are short. This felt so true back in my maternity leave days. Now the days, weeks, weekends, months…all of it seems short short short. But – we’re having fun and enjoying every day.
Personality: Sweet sweet Drew. Here’s our “mild mannered” baby below. Many people have commented that he’s so calm and good natured, and he is…most of the time, but oh boy, he definitely does have a temper. The fun thing about his tantrums are that they can be turned into giggle fits in seconds. His new teachers today also commented on his “serious” or “stoic” face. Yep, he still turns into Mr. Serious when he’s a little uncertain of the situation.
Look who has teeth!!! Yep, two of them and plenty more on the way I think. We’ve had an up and down month with sleep. I’m convinced it must be teething related.
Drew continues to amaze us with his eating habits. This month he started table foods. Um – this child eats everything and feeds himself. Is this normal? Are all 11 month olds able to do this easily? Tonight I put Drew’s food on his tray and I ate the exact same thing (in slightly larger pieces) right next to him. It was amazing. Typcially I don’t eat dinner until after he’s down for the night but I totally enjoyed my 5:45pm dinner tonight! I can get used to this. Now, we are struggling in the whole milk department. He’s now only nursing morning and evening and not so interested in drinking cold milk in a sippy cup. We’re working on it.
- Reds game – seperate blog post coming soon!
- Playdate at Lexie’s (Tim and I went to a baby free event! yea!)
- Day at The Gardner School (he did awesome)
- Feeding himself with table / finger foods
- Crawling, army crawling that is – and he’s darn good at it.
- Waves hi and bye-bye
- Not really a milestone but if anyone says “Yea baby!”, Drew immediately starts clapping. Adorable.
