11 Months of Sweetness

One month away from one...  It just cannot be true.

In his 11th month, Elias:
Weighed 23 lbs.
Wore size 18 month clothes.
Wore size 4 diapers.
Did not like socks or shoes.
BUT when he wore them, he was a size 3-4.
Had lots of eczema breakouts.
Had a lot of rashes, one major one from cinnamon.
Was standing for minutes at a time.
Was taking 2-3 steps at a time.
Slept through the night most nights.  8+ hours.
Went to the Adventure Science Center with the Keens.
Visited with the Calhouns.
Attended his first Minister's School.
Favorite toy was his lion walker.
Celebrated his first Easter at church!
Took his first steps... to a Teddy Graham.
Daniel gave him his first push in the blue swing.
Had his first HIGH fever.  104.1.
Went to the doctor.  No explanation.
Loved taking a bath, throwing a ball, and getting into everything.
Ate all day, everyday.
Favorite foods were rice cakes, muffins, whole bananas, and french fries.
Disliked most sweet foods like applesauce.
Said ma-ma, da-da, ah, and oh!
Still took two naps a day.
Liked doing whatever his brothers were doing.
Liked baths, grass, and picking up small items off the ground.
Everything, and I mean everything, went into his mouth.
Liked tacos and sweet potatoes.

Playing at the Science Center with strangers.  :)

Sharing his Ark with Mikaylen.

Pushing his lion around.

Looking way too big on Easter Sunday.

Mommy and Elias on Easter

Loving on his Mimi

His 1st Easter basket from Mimi - 
full of Gerber snacks and goodies 
and a ball!

Taking his first steps.

Likes playing on Samuel's piano.

Eating a yummy chocolate chip banana bread muffin.

First time to play outside and 
to ride in the cozy coupe car!

All three brothers

First experience in the grass

He just kept touching it, ripping it up, 
and putting it in his mouth.

We have a climber.

Just a swingin'.

Eating at the Catfish House for big brother, 
Daniel's 4th birthday.
