Joshua Manuel: 11 months

are you really 11 months old? is that even possible?
well i guess it is... you are walking everywhere

you are very talkative. very opinionated. very loud. very cute. very sweet. very smart.
and just pretty wonderful.

this month you decided eating anything mushy was lame. also being fed was lame. all big boy, all the time. you eat plenty! you love toast with avocado, all types of big boy food, chicken, turkey, and blueberries still.

you have a very strong opinion about everything and have no problem telling me how you feel. you are very aware and always watching what is going on. nothing gets past you! you've started to have a little more separation anxiety... you just know more and want to be with momma more. it's hard at church and i don't like to see you sad, but this too shall pass & soon you'll remember how much you love church! 

you are moving from 3 naps to 2. some days it is a struggle because if your first two naps aren't long enough you get very cranky but then don't want to sleep. the transition is always difficult but we're figuring it out. you usually wake up between 7 and 7:30am and go to sleep between 7:30 and 8pm.

you love to dance! you also LOVE music. your favorite toy right now is this little bear that sings and lights up. you like to go "bye-bye," especially when we go to Kma's & Opa's house. you love hanging out and playing with the big kids - your cousins & all your friends at church. you're learning how to play chase. that is very fun!

you've grown out of all your 9month clothing & are in size 4 night diapers.

you are learning how to give hugs and kisses (i really like this part). you really just smile all the time! even when you are sick, you smile...

yup, that's right this month you got the flu AGAIN. for the third time in your short 11 months you got the flu. it lasted almost 6 days and you threw up plenty. you also had the runs something terrible. it was super sucky. and i really hate it when you are sick. not to mention you got sick when we were moving...

yup, that's right this month we moved! we were suppose to close on a house at the end of the month, but that fell through. so we moved in to Kma's & Opa's house and now we are looking for a new house. thankfully you have your own room here. you love seeing Kma, Opa, and Uncle Johnny everyday. you have lots of fun exploring and walking all over the house. we are thankful we have somewhere to be as we figure out where we should live next!

my joshie, my joshie, i love you my joshie. even when the days are hard and long and i'm way past weary with sickness and house stuff and life stuff YOU MAKE ME SMILE. deep down, love more than i ever thought possible, smile. i am so thankful for you. i'm thankful for your laughter and silly vampire teeth. i'm thankful for your silliness and mischievousness. im thankful for your loudness and opinions. you keep us on our toes and we love chasing you around.

we love you more and more everyday! 
your momma & daddy
