So I figured I better get Andrew's 11 month post up before next week when he turns ONE!!! How is it possible that a whole year has gone by since having Andrew?! In some ways it seems like he was just born and other times it feels as if he has been a part of our family forever. He has been so much fun, a lot of work, and so much fun to watch grow.
So right around Christmas Andrew started taking some steps and by 11 months has this walking thing down pretty good. However, he falls SO much! I don't remember John falling so much. Or maybe it's just that Andrew seems to hit his head every time he falls. This kid has a new bump or bruise on his forehead every other day! We actually had to take him to the ER last Sunday of Super Bowl. We were getting ready for church and he was walking down the hallway when he fell right into the doorway upstairs. It was so loud and an instant goose egg formed. We panicked and took him in, but luckily he was fine. Just a nasty bump and bruise.
As for sleep, Andrew has been doing okay. Still waking up in the night, but all four of his molars have popped through so hopefully that was a part of him waking up a lot. He is still waking up early (around 4-5) to eat, but then going back to bed pretty easily.
I enjoyed a girls weekend in Traverse City in January and Brad was on kid duty. Luckily Papa Don came to help for the weekend, which helped so much! Thanks Don! All of the boys had a great weekend and I did too! It was much needed and SO amazing to sleep without a baby alarm buzzing in my ear. :)
Last weekend Monhaut's came to have an early celebration for Andrew's first birthday. We had so much fun drinking wine and watching Andrew devour his cupcake. He loved it and ate the entire thing. This kid loves to eat. He eats more table food than John I think!
This month has gone by so fast and next week we will be celebrating Andrew's birthday in Disney! I can't wait!!!! Here are some pictures from the past month...
