eleven months old

August 14, 2012

 

Dear Milo,

You can now walk! For real! Every time I see you take steps on your own, I am in awe. A few months ago, you were just a blob that couldn’t even control your own neck! Now you are really, truly, a small person. You’re eleven months old now and soon graduating from being a ‘baby’ to being a ‘little boy’.

Your Daddy says you don’t look like a baby anymore because you have so many teeth now. As of today, you have 2 in the bottom and almost 4 on top. We still haven’t given you a hair cut and I’m not sure when we will. There are days when we want to shave it all off but there are days when I just want to keep it as it is for a little while longer. It’s often in your eyes now though so I think we will have to cut it up sooner rather than later.

You sleep through the night much better now. Sometimes you still wake up once in the middle of the night but more often, you don’t wake up until it’s morning already. Unfortunately, you are turning out to be an early morning person waking up somewhere between 5AM and 6AM – EVERY DAY. I really wonder when the day would come that we would have to wake you up because you’re sleeping in so late.

You still love to eat noodles/pasta. You eat it like you’ll never see it ever again and it’s your last chance to eat it. You love fruits of all sorts – grapes, bananas, mango, watermelon. You seem more hungry for solids lately. Actually when you’re crying and I don’t know what to do to console you, I usually offer you some crackers or cheerios and you settle down almost right away! I’m apologizing in advance if this is going to create some problems for you when you’re an adult and the only thing that can console you when you’re upset is food. Haha.

I’m not sure what your favorite toys are because it seems like you play with everything. You’re very curious especially if you see something new. If I had to answer what your favorite hobby is, I would say it’s opening cabinets. You just don’t get tired of doing that for some reason. Lately, you like playing with balls, things with wheels (cart, stroller, trains, cars), Tigger, Poe, you love destroying towers of blocks, and you like looking through your books.

You really know what you want now. You already reach, point, and pull to get whatever it is you want. Unfortunately, if there’s something you want and we don’t give it to you, you already throw mini temper tantrums. I’m already very afraid of the terrible twos. Fortunately, right now, you’re still easily distracted so you easily forget what you were so upset about.

Oh, we’re not planning on a big party for your 1st birthday. Heck, we’re not even planning for any sort of party at this point.  Instead, we’re going on a trip! You’ll get to ride an airplane for the very first time.
