Vlog: Marching to the Beat of our Own Drum!

Last week we visited Daddy at his work and random dancing broke out.  Make sure you watch Locke dancing in the background when we pan over to him. :)

Locke: 11 Months

I can't believe Locke is already 11 months old.  In the last month, we've seen a lot of "growing up" from our little baby.

  • Locke is wearing 12-18 month clothes.  No idea how much he's weighing in at, but we can tell that his face is thinning up a little bit as he moves around more.
  • Locke is clapping, waving, and high five-ing.  His hands are always moving!
  • Locke is crawling up the stairs.  Yes, this makes things more complicated.
  • He isn't walking yet, but will occasionally stand unsupported for a few seconds.  
  • Locke is making word sounds.  I think that "Bye, Bye" is his first word.  He has also said "Clap, Clap" when prompted.  He is interested in the dogs and is making the "d" sound too.
  • Over the last month, we have been weaning Locke off of breast milk.  He is just eating so much that it was out-stripping my production.  He still breastfeeds in the morning and at night, but during the day he is now taking formula bottles.  He handled the transition without any problems. Of course.

2 Boys and a Blog

I find that sitting down to write about what is happening just isn't happening lately.  It probably has something to do with these two cuties stealing my computer!!  Right now, our family is in a pretty happy place with nothing major going on. (Yay!!)

Most weeks, we have Sunday afternoon lunch with Grammie and Papa.  This weekend we snapped some pictures of the boys with their grandparents.  Everyone was in a smiley mood, which makes for a great photo op.

Notice Grammie's special grandma shirt!
How cute are these kids?!
Ledger kept going over to Locke and hugging him.  They are so funny together.
This last picture is pretty funny.  Ledger doesn't like to have his hair washed during bath time and we are working on making this easier for him.  Over the last few weeks, we have started having him lay back in the tub and "wash" his own hair.  He's still learning to just relax in the water, but we're getting closer every day.
