Happy 11 Months Ethan!



Dear Buddy,

Yesterday you turned 11 months old...the same day that Dad turned 30!  30 is such a big milestone, but I'm more focused on the fact that you're turning ONE next month!  Seriously...where has the time gone?  And what happened to my little baby?  When I see you around infants, I'm shocked at how big you are and can't believe you used to be that size only a few short months ago.  It's so true what they say about the first year...you'll never change as much in a year as you have this year.


While you're not walking yet, you're getting much more comfortable with walking with your walker and when you fall, you pick yourself up and move on.  It's rare you cry when you fall anymore...unless you really hit your head, like you did on the coffee table this past month.  That was your first big bump and I felt awful seeing you so upset!  


This is you at Dad's 30th birthday yesterday.  Grandma Kidman got you this adorable wagon for your birthday and you LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  I thought you might be scared being wheeled around in the wagon, but you couldn't get enough of it!  It was adorable.


You are also learning how to crawl up {but not down} stairs, pass a ball along, and clap and kick on demand.  The other day, you were sitting in the tub and I told you to kick and you did!  All on your own!  I was pretty impressed!


You love spending your time outside, listening to the birds and watching cars go by.  You also love going to the grocery store and waving and smiling at everyone.  You are SUCH a ham!


You are babbling more and more...I swear you almost said "da da" the other day...we both can't wait for you to say that.  You say mama all the time and sometimes say MMMMMMMoooooo like a cow.  Love it!


I am really trying to take in this last month before you turn 1...I simply can't believe we're already here and yet I am so excited for all that's ahead.  You've already got quite the little personality...so I can only imagine how you're be as you develop and grow more.



Love, Mom

  6. I can't believe he is almost one, I have seriously loved following along through your pregnancy & watching this little guy grow up. I still can't believe my little Matthew will be one in a few months, I can only imagine how you feel knowing its NEXT month. We LOVE the wagon, we always take it to the pool with us, I think this one is the best (with the straps)!! I'm the same way with little babies, I saw a newborn the other day just a pound off of what Matthew was & it was shocking, literally. It's hard to really realize how much they have changed till you see something that that, or when they start talking & walking, or pictures!!

  11. Happy 11 months lil man! You are so cute, I just love those two bottom teeth that show with his big smile!

    Honestly I was happy when my Stella's 1st birthday came because the whole month before I kept getting sad over everything, it was her last month as a lil baby I kept saying and the day before she turned one I was a mess but on her Birthday I was totally ok and am excited for all the fun to come with toddler hood!!! I know crazy mama over here;)

    Enjoy this month and soak up all his babyness!
