11 months of this sweet boy! you are a fabulous sleeper! we put you down at 5:30 each night and usually don't see you for 12 hours. i am seeing light at the end of the tunnel. now that you sleep through the night we have seen your easy going personality really shine. you are cruising all over the place and getting much faster with your crawling. you still wear your hip brace at night. you had a pretty bad ear infection about a week ago which lead us to remove your brace all together. we are hoping that you soon will graduate out of that contraption. your thighs continue to grow and you will soon be starting solids. i have big plans for feeding you really good foods, but we'll see how it all goes down in reality. your 11 month also marked asher's 3rd year(more to come on that). he is so proud of you and you really like him. when the brothers aren't around you whine a bit, looking around for them. i am now realizing you don't know life without chaos and the craziness of our loud family. we love listening to you "talk". you have a big audience around here and you take full advantage when we're all in the car. ryder is especially sweet to you. he doesn't like to hear you cry and wants me to fix it when you do. we all love you dearly and are looking forward to celebrating your first birthday.
