Our little man is growing up so quickly. This week he decided to wean himself. Part of me feels so sad that he is ready to move on. But part of me is so relieved that he loves big-people food so much that he can do without Mommy. I'm so thrilled that I was able to breastfeed him to almost 11 months. I would've loved to make it to 12 months. But, I'm pleased that he is growing so big and ready to become independent in so many ways. He has begun taking formula out of a bottle until we can begin whole milk when he turns 1. His birthday is just around the corner!
He is pulling up and cruising along furniture, and eating everything in sight. We are still waiting to hear some words, but I know that will come in time. He got a big boy haircut today at Casey's. She does so great with kids, and Mommy's too!
I can hardly believe that only 11 short months ago he was just born, so tiny, so precious. Now he is a chunky little fellow eager to explore his world.
