Zach is 11 Months!

Zach is 11 Months Old. How did this happen? He is almost a full year. Why don't they stay cute little babies forever? We are in full swing for planning his first birthday party. The first birthday is a celebration of not only this sweet little child, but also, you kept your kid alive for an entire year! Congrats! I feel like it's more of an achievement with the first one because its the first time you've done it. However, I also feel like I forgot everything about newborns when Zach was born and was just as scared and clueless as the first time around. I will say though, I wasn't super stressed out if he didn't eat all of his bottle or poop every day because I knew he would eat when he was hungry and what goes in must come out. Anyway, he is 11 Months and he's cute as ever. He's starting to show his personality more and more every day. He does things like throws his pacifier when he's mad and laughs at his sister when she makes funny noises. Zach is getting to be more aware of what people are feeling. Zoe knocked her daddy over when he was sitting on the floor and Zach was afraid that he was hurt and started crying. He has also started to bond more with Daddy. He has been a Mama's boy pretty much since he was born and still is, but recently he has been noticing and wanting Daddy more and more. He saw Daddy from across the gym while we were walking one morning and started to get very excited. He loves his Dad. He took a few steps yesterday. Looks like we will have a walker soon!

Zach likes:

  • His Family
  • All Danger (stairs, hot things)
  • Putting EVERYTHING in his mouth
  • Meat
  • Laughing at his sister
  • Pulling Zoe's hair
  • Crawling really fast.
  • Hanging out with the walking ladies
  • Smartphones
  • His Pacifier
  • Taking a bath
Zach doesn't like:
  • Rinsing his hair in the tub
  • Getting his diaper changed
  • Changing his clothes
  • Getting in the car seat
  • Waiting on food
  • Being hungry
  • Getting his hands or face wiped
Zach is unsure of:
  • Squishy foods
  • Wind
  • Shoes

Hey Buddy, you're blocking the 11 months sign.

Oh sorry Mom, let me move over.

Yep, I'm cute.


Picture time!

Lemme see that sign.

I got it!

Okay, I'll sit for one.

How did he get this cute?

I can't even.

That's all for now. God is good.

Hopefully All Done...(Update on Zoe's Condition)

As many of you are aware, Zoe had surgery in November for a urinary condition called Vesicoureteral Reflux. If you have questions about what that is, you can look within my blog at these posts: Zoe: The Most Popular Baby in the Hospital or More Crazy Adventures for Zobug (Another Update). Since we had a follow up today, I thought I would share the story of her surgery.
