11 Months, seems like Forever!!

I remember getting Lil Man's school calendar in September and thinking it was going to be forever before May hit, 9 months away, and yet here we are two weeks out of May and I can't believe how fast the time has gone.

Prince T has grown into a delightful baby!! He's mostly happy, quite stubborn but easy to get along with, he just knows what he wants and he knows how to get it.  He's really started doing some neat things now.  He's not walking yet, but he's pulling himself up and standing with assistance, he claps, he waves hi and bye and he still blows kisses.  He loves his brothers and he enjoys spending time with Daddy.

There are some marked differences between him and Lil Man when Lil Man was that age.  Prince T doesn't fight sleep, he lays down for his naps without fuss and sleeps well during his naps. He's still taking two naps a day and he is in bed by 7 every night.  He's a creature of routine.  Lil Man wasn't quite this easy, he'd fight naps, he'd walk around and do anything to stay awake when he was tired and bed by 7 forget it, Lil man wouldn't go to sleep until 9 or 10 and he had to have you sleep with him.  Lil Man and Prince T have an equally determined attitude, when they get an idea in their head that's what they want and so help anyone who stands in their way.

Prince T loves to play with his brothers, he loves to be read to, and he really likes Justin Time (thanks Lil Man).  Prince T also likes to eat, but he's particular about what foods he feeds himself and what foods you are allowed to feed to him.  Going outside is another favourite activity of Prince T, he loves being outside as long as he's bundled up he'd love to be outside all day long.  I'm so glad it's nice out again, soon he'll be playing in the yard and chasing his big brother around.

Prince T isn't a fan of staying up for long periods of time, he enjoys his sleep.  He also is showing signs of an allergy to Milk, so we've switched him to Almond Milk, which has helped.  He's no longer having explosive diapers that require him to be showered twice or three times a day, hopefully he will grow out of it or at least not be so sensitive to it that he can't enjoy other things like cheese and yogurt and ice cream, but if it goes the other way we will figure that out too!!

I have one more month at home with him full time, but actually only two weeks because I'm going back to work on May 4th.  And then I return full time on May 19th.  I'm excited and sad at the same time.  I'm hoping to work more in the evenings then the day time so I can spend more day time hours with my boys while they are awake!!

Happy 11 Months Prince T, we LOVE you forever and ever!!
