Nicholas 10 1/2 month pictures

Sorry parts of the picture are cut off because they were too large for our scanner. I love how these pictures capture his three crooked little bottom teeth.

Nicholas at 11 months

Teeth Count: 3 and 1/2 (He has the bottom middle three. The middle one is VERY crooked. His left front tooth has also cut through the gums recently. He had the worst runny nose while this front tooth was making its way through his gums.)

Weight: 25 lbs

Clothing Size: 18-24 month outfits

Height: 29 1/2 inches

Goal in Life: Get the Wii remote!!!

Mobility: He still does army crawl to get around if there is no nearby furniture. His favorite way to get around is to side step along the side of the couch. He pulled himself up for the first time when he turned 10 months old. Now he is doing it like a pro, and he has even figured out how to sit down after he has pulled himself up. I don't know if I'm a fan of his new found mobility. I do think it is cute when he searches around the house to find me or papa. I don't think it is cute when he tries to unload all the knives from the dishwasher. I don't think his new found mobility has made him a happier baby because now he goes to all the work to finally get to something interesting and mom tells him he can't play with it.

Noises: My favorite is after he is done nursing, he will lean back his head and talk to himself and make little happy breathy "heee, hee" noises. It is hilarious. We are working with him to make only "nice noises." He has a real angry grunt that he makes when he isn't getting his food fast enough or he is not getting something that he wants.

Great Parts About This Stage: He rarely spits up anymore. Blowouts are rare. He is over his extreme stranger anxiety and is willing to be held by others.
