Campbell | Eleven Months

Weight: I would guess 17-18 pounds.

Height: Probably around 30 inches. He seems to grow about an inch a month.
Sleep: Sleep schedule hasn't changed for many months now. Still sleeps around 7:30-7:00 and takes two naps a day. First nap is always right at 9:00 and the second nap is anywhere between 2:00-3:00. Both naps are usually an hour to an hour and a half long.

Eat: Campbell still LOVES to eat and will still eat anything. Thankfully he's started to slow down when he eats instead of scarfing it down without taking a breath. He eats a lot. We order him a kids meal when we go out to eat and he eats every single bite. It's crazy! I've started giving Campbell an afternoon snack every day now. It's always just a small bowl of puffs, cheerios and yogurt melts to tide him over until dinner. I'm still nursing Campbell. Yay! I'm so proud of myself for making it this far. I nurse him 3 times a day but in about a week I'm going to start the weaning process. I'm looking forward to the freedom of not breastfeeding anymore but it also makes me a little sad.

Clothes: Campbell is wearing all 6-12 month clothes. Some of his 6-9 month outfits still fit if I stretch the legs out really good after I've washed them.
Diapers: Size 3 Pampers Swaddlers and Pampers Baby Dry at night.

Likes: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is Campbell's absolute favorite thing. Judge if you feel the need but Campbell is obsessed and loves it so much. I'm done with feeling guilty about it. If he loves it and it makes him happy, then so be it. It makes life easier, quieter and run more smoothly so a few Mickey Mouse episodes a day it is. When Campbell isn't sitting in front of the TV with his fingers in his mouth completely entranced with Mickey and the gang, he's playing toys and enjoys reading books!! His favorite book is Doggies with Moo Baa La La La coming in at a close second. He also loves any touch and feel book. Campbell loves pulling toys out of his basket. He loves playing with door stoppers and opening and closing drawers and doors. Bath time is still his favorite time of the day. He also likes brushing his teeth. He gets a huge grin on his face every time I pull out the toothbrush and toothpaste.

Dislikes: Campbell still isn't a fan of the church nursery but he gets better every time he goes. It helps that he's there three times a week now (church, my bible study and MDO) and they always tell me he does wonderful after the initial drop off cry. He also doesn't like waiting for his food to get prepared so I have to make sure his meals are all fixed and ready to be devoured before I can set him in his high chair.
Milestones: Campbell finally started crawling!! It took him forever to decide he was ready for it but once he started crawling he was a pro. He's also pulling up, can go from a laying to sitting position, likes to sit on his knees, and is imitating our sounds. Campbell walks while he holds our hands and sort of cruises furniture but just a few steps at a time.  He's really babbling a lot and says "dada" "mama" "baba" lala" but I don't really count them as "talking" or his "first words". He's can stand on his own for a short amount of time and he focuses really hard while he's doing it!

Month Eleven: This has been a great month! I knew once Campbell started crawling he would be more content and happy and he is. He just crawls around, explores and does his thing and he loves it.

All About Campbell: I know I say this every month but Campbell is so sweet. The ladies who watch him at MDO always go on and on about how sweet he is. He loves his Momma!! :) and prefers me over anyone else. Of course I'm around him the most but still. Campbell is a great sleeper and a great eater.  He loves to just sit in my lap and cuddle. His big open mouth, very wet kisses melt my heart and bath time is my favorite time of the day with him. He is so ticklish and that big belly laugh when I tickle him or whisper in his ear brings the biggest grin to my face. I love this little boy so much I could just cry. He is so perfect and so special and I feel so, so blessed to be his Mommy.
