How did this happen...

My sweet little man is 11 months old!  I just can't believe it!
Colin is:

- clapping, waving "hey" and "bye"
- pointing to things he wants
- grunting ALL the time, and this can mean various things... I'm hungry, I'm full, I'm tired... pretty much anything.
- standing up on everything!
- cruising along tables
- walking with a toy (or a chair) (or actually anything that moves, he will walk with it)
- starting to dance (yay!)
- getting very picky!  I am going to have to start disguising his veggies!
- sleeping from 7 - 6:30
- taking 2 naps, each is usually between 1 - 2 hours long
- eats 3 meals a day and 2 snacks
- nursing 4 times a day, but we will soon be introducing cows milk
- growing up waaay too fast for this mama!
Colin is really such a good baby!  Since he was just a couple months old everyone asks "is he always this good?"  and the answer is Yes.  I know I say it all the time, but we are so very blessed.  I am just so in love with our little boy and thank God every day that he chose us to be Colin's parents.

(Just came across this... I did this post about a month ago!  Guess I forgot to post it... oops.  And see, his schedule has already started to change again =)  The main change being that he is sleeping until at least 6:30 now! haha)

I thought it would be fun if I could look back and see what our schedule is while Colin is 10 months old.  It's funny how once you get in a schedule, something changes (like going down to two naps... start eating solids... cut back on nursing... three meals a day... snacks...) and the whole schedule changes again.  We've got a good system going - and I will be introducing whole milk soon, so this schedule is going to change!  But in the meantime - here is our day:

5:30 a.m. - Colin wakes up and nurses
6:00 a.m. - snuggle
7:00 a.m. - breakfast - today Colin had apple/cinnamon/raisin oatmeal and Cherrios
8:00 a.m. - family walk around the neighborhood
8:30 a.m. - playtime
9:30 a.m. - nurse and nap
10:30/11 a.m. - snack and playtime
12:00 p.m. - lunch - today Colin had peas, corn, apples, potatoes
12:30 p.m. - play or run errands - today we went to the grocery store
2:30 p.m. - nurse and nap
4:00 p.m. - snack and playtime
5:30 p.m. - dinner - today Colin had chicken, green beans, peaches, bananas
6:00 p.m. - playtime
7:00 p.m. - bath, nurse, bed
