Killean-11 Months

11 Months!
Our little booger is 11 months old now!  What?!?!?  Time has flown during his first year.  I know that's super cliche, but whatever.  It's the truth for us.

Eating corn like a big boy.  Well...gnawing on it at least
This kid-nothing stops him.  He is always so very busy.  He loves music and starts to dance when it comes on.  He loves his big brother.  He laughs at just about everything Rowan does and has fun playing with him.  He tries to play with his trains and read his books too.  They're just so much fun together.

He is SOOOOOO close to walking.  He is much better at taking a few steps (like 5-6) BEFORE getting super excited and trying to dive towards whatever he was heading towards.  He is also seeming to prefer walking between tables/couches/chairs/etc when he can.  He'll go a couple of steps unassisted to get from point A to point B.  I know he'll be talking on his own very soon.

Love this face!
Sleep is maybe..kind of...sorta getting better?  We're making progress some nights (one night, he didn't wake up until 5:00!!!), and then other nights, is' up a couple of times.  We're letting him fuss a bit longer before jumping up to get him. Rowan seems to sleep through Killean's fits, and Killean doesn't seem to be getting "panicky" or really upset, so we're just letting him go until it's clear he's getting upset and/or not going to go back to sleep on his own.  Saves us one or two wakings a night most nights.  Someday, we'll sleep well again...

The best part though about this last month: I'M EATING DAIRY AGAIN!!!!!!  It's glorious and amazing!  He hasn't had any rash or digestive issue since I've reintroduced dairy, so I'm loving that!  I'm still off regular milk as a regular beverage (but I'll cook with it in things like Mac and Cheese and tomato soup), but all things dairy have been consumed.  Butter. Cheese.  Cream cheese. Ice Cream.  Cheese cake.  Yogurt.  It's so wonderful to not have to be worried about every thing I eat.

Killean has six teeth now with one or two more coming in any day I'm sure.  He's been fussy lately, and drooling like CRAZY, so I'm sure some rough nights and new teeth are in our near future.

We often joke that this boy will be the death of us-and he certainly keeps us on our toes.  But I'd be lying if I didn't say I love cuddling him and babying him a bit.  He's sweet and is wholly attached to me.  When I come home from work each day he throws a fit if I don't pick him up right away.  He loves when I hold him...and I'm kind of OK with that.  I know it won't last forever.  So I try to remember that when I'm having moments of "seriously kid? can't I just _____ without you for 2 minutes?".

Play time with brother

My boys. Sweet and sassy
