Jack – 11 months!

Our little Bear is 11 months old!!!

This post is coming a little late since we’ve been battling a horrible virus around here. It had Jack down for almost 2 weeks and Preston down for about a week–with a nasty case of pink eye that came his first day back to school after he was feeling better.

Jack is 25.6 pounds. He lost a pound from being sick because last month he was 26 pounds. He is pretty darn short, too! We always though Preston was short (he’s actually caught up now though) when he was young and Jack is a few inches shorter than Preston was at this time. πŸ™‚

Jack is so good at standing on his own. He will take about 6 steps every now and then, but only does it on occasion. He prefers to power crawl around the house. He still loves tearing everything out of the cupboards and tossing it all around! We like to call him ‘Bear the Destroyer’. Preston isn’t a fan when Bear the Destroyer comes around to knock his towers, buildings, train tracks, etc over.

Jack is such a sweet boy. He’s very smiley and talkative with his little baby babble! We always get so many compliments about his smile when we are out and about. He can say Dada, Mama, and hello. He loves taking my cell phone and then pretends to answer it. It’s so adorable.

Jack is an amazing sleeper at night. He is in bed by 6pm and he will wake up anywhere from 5am-6:30am. It all depends, usually when he wakes up early its because he’s soaked through his size 6 nighttime diapers or because he pooped. (Seriously, what’s a Mom to do when she can’t find a diaper big enough?!)

Chad and I feel really lucky because with Jack being in bed by 6pm and Preston being in bed at 6:30pm–we have our evenings to ourselves! It’s pretty nice! Lately we’ve been binge watching Stranger Things at night!! It definitely makes the dinner hour crazy though. It’s a rush from about 5-5:30 to get the boys fed, cleaned up, changed for bed, etc! We usually take Jack upstairs about 5:40 to start his little bedtime routine.

Jack only takes one nap a day. Nothing new there! haha! He usually will nap from about 10am. It will last anywhere from 1.5-3 hours. The days his nap is short, he falls of a cliff for bed about 5:30pm. I really don’t mind that he doesn’t nap much, Preston just recently gave up his nap so it’s not like I get any alone time anyway!!

I can’t bare to take Jack out of his infant carseat. Thankfully he hasn’t hit the 30b threshold. It is a pain to lug around, especially at 25 weeks pregnant, but he sleeps SO well in it!! Its perfect for running errands, taking Preston to and from school, etc. I just recently got his convertible carseat but I keep dragging my feet about installing it into the car.

We like to refer to Jack as our bottomless pit. I swear he eats more than Preston these days! He’s always enjoying new foods and does the cutest little nose wrinkle snort thing when he wants more! haha. He loves sauerkraut, spinach artichoke dip, blueberries, and cheese. Those are a few of his favorite things! {{pictured below, the blue paint he snatched off the counter in the 30 seconds that I wasn’t looking. I don’t think he ate much, the lady at Poison Control was very reassuring! πŸ˜› )

It’s so hard to believe that Bear is going to be a big brother in 3 months!! I can’t even believe it!!! Sometimes I wonder if we are crazy, but honestly, we can’t wait to add another one to the bunch!

It really helps that Preston is THE BEST big brother ever. He is so good at watching Jack, playing with him, he even hits Jack on the back if he’s choking on a bit of food. He is also awesome at making sure Jack doesn’t get into anything that he shouldn’t be. I don’t know what I would do without Preston around. He’s such a sweet little 3 year old.

Teaching Jack how to balance on one foot!

Well, I think thats about it for our little guy. We just love him so much and enjoy watching him grow!

And one last photo! Preston and Jack side by side at 11 months! Preston may look bigger, but he was 3 pounds less!!
