Noah – eleven months

Little man is eleven months old. This is actually a happy squeal.

Noah 11 months


I recognize the words dog, up, elephant, duck, horse, open, close, spin. When the big people say those words, I know to look for those things or do those things.
I usually will give out a High Five if you ask nicely.
I have four teeth. The one to the left of my top left tooth came in earlier this week. My right front tooth is coming in as we speak, so I’m a little lopsided.
I weigh about 20 pounds.
I sleep from about 7:30 p.m. to about 4 or 5 a.m., have a little feed and go back to sleep until 7 or 7:30 a.m.
I started dropping my afternoon milk feed a couple weeks ago, so now I feed around 7:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 7 p.m. and 4 or 5 a.m. I eat solid food for breakfast, lunch, an afternoon snack and dinner. I’ll drop the mid-morning feed pretty soon.
I do love to eat. Some of my new favorite things are those little oranges. My typical breakfast is two or three egg yolks and a banana or some type of fruit (I know that sounds like a lot, but I’m a growing boy!). For other meals, I love chicken, sweet potatoes, peas, carrots and really any fruit. I get salmon, venison or duck every now and then depending on what mommy and daddy have left over from their meals.
I’m still allergic to cow’s milk, so I can’t do yogurt, cheese or anything like that. I hope I grow out of that soon.
Some of my favorite activities are walking all around (still with help), but I am getting better and better each day. I recently started walking pretty well with only one hand being held by the big people.
I love to kick my mini soccer ball all around the house. I still do not love crawling.
I love dogs… any kind of dog.
I love to read books, “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” by Eric Carle is one of my new favorites. It has sliding flaps that I have now mastered opening and closing.
