Clyde At Eleven Months

Well, my itty bitty boy is less than a month away from being one year old!  How did this happen?


Clyde is just so much fun lately.  He has definitely been trying to communicate more, and he has tried to say several words.  His favorites are "dah" (dog), "dada", "hi", "bah" (bottle), and "mama"!  Yes, he now says "mama".  You have no idea how happy that makes me.  I do not know why, but my both my boys' first word was "dog"!  Clyde also babbles in the cutest little way right now, and I love it.


Clyde wants so badly to be able to keep up with Wyatt and Gwen - I can just see him watching them run around with longing in his eyes.  But he is well on his way!  This month he started pulling up on things, and now he pulls up to his feet!  This also leads to issues, like when he tries to pull up on an unstable chair, or when he somehow climbs out of his crib!  None of my kids have ever managed to climb out of their crib, until now.  But eleven months seems a bit early (ha!) to move him to a toddler bed, so I'm just hoping it doesn't happen again.


Clyde has been developing his sense of humor, and it is just hilarious when he really gets to laughing!  I love it.  He has also been paying games back at me, and "patty cake" was a big hit the other day.

He has officially become another blanket kid!  Wyatt and Gwen both have their favorite blankets, and now Clyde has his.  Thankfully he picked a blanket for which we have an almost duplicate, so I can wash one while he is using the other!  It is so cute how all my kids have their favorite blankets, but I am a little flabbergasted that none of them seem to be very into stuffed animals.  I was a teddy bear girl myself.

Even though his doctor has repeatedly told me that he is in the 8% for weight, I didn't really believe it until this month.  I thought he seems to be the same size as Wyatt and Gwen were. But the child is eleven months old, and he still fits in some of his 3-6 month jeans!  I am curious to take him in for his 12 month appointment soon, so I can really compare his size with the other two at this age, because now I am not sure!

Sleep has been so much better over the last month or so - usually he just wakes up at 4:00 AM, and then he'll go back to sleep until 7:00 or 8:00.  I can deal with that!  I actually don't mind the 4:00 feeding, because it gives us good early-morning snuggle time.

His hair is getting a bit long, but it curls around his ears, and I just can't bear to cut it!  I want to wait until after we take some one-year-old pictures, because I just love the way it curls.

I am busy trying to figure out what to do for his first birthday party - I think I have finally picked a theme, and as you read this I am probably at Hobby Lobby picking up some supplies!  First birthdays are fun, but this whole year seemed to go by too fast.

My Sweet Clyde,

I can't believe how big you are getting!  I can see more and more of your personality developing every day, and it is so much fun.  You are such a happy baby, and we get comments from the church nursery workers all the time about how smiley you are.  You love when people talk to you or play with you - and you are most unhappy when you think you have been left alone or ignored.  You are getting so much more playful, and the other day you leaned forward into my face with your little eyebrows raised, trying to make me laugh (and you succeeded).  I just love watching you grow, sweet boy.

Love Always,

Mama

I always have trouble cutting off the baby curls too! How did you get your kids to take blankies? My kids just don't have any love objects, no matter how hard I tried.

Sounds like a cutie! I think you can totally put off the haircut for a little while longer. ;) I kept hoping my little boy would grow some curls, but it's pretty much just a mop...oh well.

Thanks, Elizabeth! I am going to try to put off the haircut - and even then, maybe I'll just trim it a little!

You know, I'm not sure how they got so attached to their blankies - I'm thinking because sometimes when they were upset I would give them a soft blanket and tuck it next to their face? Maybe I should tuck the next one in with a stuffed animal, haha!
