Last week my sweet baby turned 11 months old. Before Spencer was born, I remember thinking that I had no idea how I could ever love a baby as much as I loved Maxwell. Well, it could not be easier with Spencer. I love this squeezable baby every bit as much as I love his big brother.
Spencer’s such a snuggler. If he’s tired enough, he’ll let me rock him before nap and lay his little head on my chest. There is nothing better. He also loves some good snuggles right after waking up.
He’s starting to eat more and more finger foods. Fruits of all kinds are a hit and I’m trying to just give him little bits of whatever we’re having for dinner. He had chicken for the first time last week and it went over just ok. He’s got 2 bottom teeth and 2 top teeth with another 2 looking like they’re about to break through so he can handle some food! He’s still nursing 3 times a day too.
He’s babbles all the time and I swear he said “mama” the other day! He’s also got the very best belly laughs you’ve ever heard!
He’s still napping 2 times a day – at 9:00 and around 2:00. Unless he goes to school where he’ll be up all morning and then usually fall asleep from 12:00 to 12:30 right before I get him at 1:00. Not good! But, we’re adjusting.
He still loves Maxwell more than anything and is getting very good at getting into all of Maxwell’s toys. We hear “no no ya-ya!” come out of Maxwell’s mouth a lot!
He’s not walking yet but can crawl faster than any baby I’ve seen! He pulls up on every single thing and never sits still. Case in point…
Spencer still hasn’t latched on to a specific lovey. He really just loves his orange pacifier the best!
Hanging with Bear Bryant!
Every day with this happy, joyful, jolly little guy is better than the last. How did I get so, so lucky to get this baby? He’s just plain awesome.
We love you, Spencey!
