Hey mate, so today is the day that you turn 11 months old. The next update will be the biggest yet – your 1st birthday. But before I start crying bucket loads at just the mere thought of you turning one, I’ll push that to the back of my mind and fill you in on everything that has happened this month:

11 months

  • You had your under one year development check with the health visitor last week and it went better than I expected. You passed the communication section with flying colours – it would seem you’re a born chatterbox just like me. In fact you passed every section with flying colours – except for one. You aren’t yet standing up and supporting your own weight, and whilst we were worried that you should be doing this by now the health visitor confirmed that there’s nothing to worry about – just yet! It seems you’re just a typical boy and a touch lazy, you’ll get there when you’re good and ready
  • We had your weight and length measured for the first time in a few months. You weigh in at 22lbs 7 oz putting you on the 75th centile. Height wise you measure 77cm, putting you on the 91st centile – it seems we may have a giant on our hands as you’re predicted to be well over 6ft when you’re older
  • You added yet another word to your growing vocabulary, this time nailing the word ‘nana’

11 months

  • I’ve been back at work for a month now and our new routine is going great. You love going to spend time with your nanny on a Monday and you spend your Tuesdays having some important time with daddy
  • You’ve been enjoying your walker for a few months now, but could only manage to scoot backwards in it. This month you mastered the art of going forwards and now zoom around the room following us wherever we go. It’s so cute to watch and will definitely help strengthen your legs ready for your first steps
  • We took you on a trip to the bluebell woods a few weeks back. This may not sound exciting to you but it’s something I dreamed of doing once I had children and it didn’t disappoint as I got some gorgeous photos of you
  • Yet another little tooth has popped through, bringing your total up to five

So that’s it for another month little guy. You’ll have to excuse me now as I must dash……..I’m off to plan you’re 1st birthday party!!
