Brady's 11 Month Update

Hey, everyone!

It's that time again. Brady is 11 months old today. Seriously, months are flying by way too fast these days! He weighs 21 lbs and is 29 inches tall. He's growing like a weed!

He has five teeth and three more are starting to pop through. 

He's been a pro-walker for quite some time but here in the last week or so he has started being able to bend over and pick stuff up without having to get on the floor to get it. 

He won't sit down for baths anymore; he has to walk around playing with his toys the whole time. It's funny. I'm telling you, he really doesn't ever sit still, unless he's asleep. Even as he's falling asleep, his legs are going. Lol. 

He had his third haircut on Sunday. Speaking of hair, he loves to eat hair and fuzz. Like, he'll pull hair and fuzz off of his stuffed animals and other things. I have to even take one with longer hair away because of it. Weird and nasty at the same time. :-P

I've been meaning to mention this but I keep forgetting: When Brady's drinking milk he always says one of these four things while drinking, "yickle, yickle, yickle," "gickle, gickle, gickle," "nickle, nickle, nickle" or "goya, goya, goya." I wish I knew what he was saying in his mind. Lol.
He is SO much fun to be around! His personality is AWESOME! He's a goober. He's very independent and strong-willed. For instance, he doesn't really want me to hold his hand when we're outside walking around and stuff like that. He'll yank his hand away most of the time because he wants to walk around by himself like a big boy. And if he can't figure something out, he'll just keep trying until he does.

He can rough-house and play with older kids already. He was out running and rolling around playing in the grass with a six-year-old in our fellowship the yesterday evening. 

He has little temper tantrums sometimes when he doesn't get his way or something. He'll go up and down the hallway, walking really fast and stomping around, flailing his arms like a monkey and shouting, "ADADADADADA!" and you can tell he's mad. It's HILARIOUS! Haha! <- I'm literally laughing right now just thinking about it.

He's definitely a foodie and likes to smack his lips incredibly loud when he's eating. (Daddy says that's cute now but something he'll have to break him of when he's older. LOL)

My dad installed a swing in our breezeway/sunroom when he came to visit last month and Brady absolutely loves it! He can sit and swing for an hour or more at a time.

I can't believe my BABY is going to be a one year old next month.


 Much love,
(A mom of an almost toddler -- whaaaat?!)
