11 Months

Cayden turned 11 months old June 26th while we were in Florida. He's getting to be such a big boy. At 11 months he was not yet crawling but he was oh so close. All of his cousins were working with him trying to get him to crawl. They would hold out their iphones or Nintendo DS and he would try oh so hard to crawl to whatever it was. They each wanted the "win" at teaching since cousin Lauren had gotten Adalyn to crawl when we were on vacation at their house two summers ago! Cayden was able to scoot around on his belly a little bit. And was excellent scooting backwards. We weren't used to him moving so we were all surprised when he moved himself over to a side table and pulled a lamp down on his head. Poor guy got a little goose egg on his forehead. Of course the day after we returned home (the 30th) he started officially crawling!  While we were in Florida Cayden figured out how to get from his tummy to a sitting position. We saw him sitting up in the pack-n-play on the monitor!

Cayden had (and still has) 4 teeth. He has three on the bottom and one on top. The top tooth is a side tooth so he has the funniest smile! I just figured after the third bottom tooth popped through that the other side would be right behind it, but it still hasn't come in. It feels like he's been teething for forever!

As of last week at the doctor's office, Cayden weighs 22 lbs. He's a little chunk. He's growing out of a lot of his 12 month clothes. He's wearing a size 4 diaper but he is still in a size 1 or 2 shoe! Little feet!!

Early in June Cayden got sick and had a lot of nasty diapers. I took him in to the doctor and after some testing we found that he had C.diff which is a bacterial infection. Thankfully he didn't have many other symptoms. The medication was for 21 days and he seemed all cleared up until he had been off the medication for about two weeks and his diapers got bad again. So as of yesterday we are back on another 21 days of medication. Hopefully the second time is a charm. Thankfully he's not crabby and he's being such a trooper about it!

Cayden has the best little personality. He's still super laid back and just loves being entertained by his sister. He buries his little head in my neck and cuddles. (Unless he's ready for bed and in that case, he doesn't want to cuddle at all!) He's very ticklish and it's precious to hear him giggle. The only time he's not happy is when he is hungry. And boy can EAT. He is never ever full and doesn't like running out of food! And you better not let him see his bottle before you're ready to feed it to him (he won't hold it himself) or he will go off!

Here are some pictures from Cayden's 11 month pictures. After we took these pictures Jonathan tore his bed apart and dropped the mattress down so now he feels like a big boy in a big bed!

I can't believe how tan this little boy got on vacation! He was lathered in sunscreen and under shades at all times!
