11 months old!!!!

Today my baby boy is 11 months old!

Wait......ELEVEN months old!?!?

Heart be still.

Josiah's been home for 3 weeks now and I cannot believe how fast time is passing by. A big part of my heart wants each day to stand still, but the rest of it can't wait to see what my little one is going to do, try, say, and accomplish next.

That's the life of a mother, right?

So as I often as I can, I try to pause and take in each moment with my son. And to help me remember in the future, here are 11 tidbits about Josiah YeJoon as he enters his 11th month of life....

*Josiah is definitely a mover and a shaker! He's pulling up on everything, crawling, cruising along the couch, and standing for brief moments without holding on to anything. He's seriously thinking about taking some steps, but usually just ends up flinging himself into mom or dad's arms instead!


*Our 20 pound boy lives for his bottle and enjoys eating mandarin oranges, sloppy joes, rice, bananas, pears, cheese, bread, noodles, sweet potatoes, and MORE. He's happily eaten everything we've offered him.....except the pancakes on Saturday morning were surprisingly not gobbled up. Don't worry, Mama stepped in and took care of the stack. ;-)

*Josiah smiles with his whole entire face. It's SO stinkin' adorable.

*We have quite the little charmer on our hands. We're stopped every.single.time we are out and about by folks who comment on how cute/handsome/precious/wonderful Josiah is. He definitely eats up that attention with a spoon!

*He's a big-time mama's boy, but "Dada" definitely has won him over. They are quite the dynamic duo.

*Josiah is such an easy going, happy-go-lucky, content, playful baby boy.

*Except when the poor thing is teething.


*He is super ticklish (like his mama!). A favorite game is "Get you" which, of course, involves us "chasing" him and tickling him.

*At this time we're still co-sleeping together on the floor, so I know first hand that Josiah is WILD when he's trying to fall asleep. He rolls here, there, and everywhere. Kicks his legs up and flails his arms about. Oh, and three times I've heard him laugh in his sleep....his daddy does the same thing. :-)


*He splashes in the tub like there's no tomorrow. He doesn't care a lick about toys or that the water/soap gets in his eyes. He's all about splashing as hard and long and loud as he can. It's the funniest thing I've ever seen!

*Josiah is so gentle with stuffed animals. He really studies them and will gently rub them against his face. Absolutely adorable.

So there you have it, friends. 11 random tidbits about our boy on his 11 month birthday! I could list 111 more, but that would take WAY too much of my precious time. And no one would even get through the entire list....well, except maybe my Mom. ;-)

Happy (what's left of it) Tuesday! I'm off to bed....
