Theo 11 months

I didn't write much down for Theo during his 11 months..whoops! But that must have meant we were BUSY! He's trying to walk much more than the last month. I did write this down: "Loves to wrap his hands around my neck". That's true. He's so cute when he does this.

Loves to get a reaction out of people and splashing in water to do this. He is a water baby through and through. I'll have to get him in survival water lessons soon! He has to do everything Finn does. 

Oh during this month he became very much obsessed with Papa. He notices how much fun Finn has with Papa, so he has to join in. And if Drew walks in the room, Theo MUST get a kiss and a hug from him. Then back to me of course ;)

Theo 10 Months

It was a crazy week the week Theo turned 10 months, so I couldn't do an official photo shoot. And this was the only picture I got on the roll because it was the last one and they were crazy and couldn't change the film out! But I think it's still pretty dang cute and totally reminds me of him to a T! Always so smile-y. This is the look he gives me after he hasn't seen me for a while or if I play peek-a-boo.

He talks like crazy- just jibber jabber. I'm worried that he'll be more of a talker than Finn..if that's even possible!

Totally a picky-eater. It's all about texture for him I can tell.

Theo at 9 Months Old

We looooove Theo at 9 months! He's such a nugget! And still such a snuggler.

-Has a fascination with buttons and remote controls.
-Has started using his index finger but doesn't know how to point yet. But still uses it a lot!
-Giggles when we giggle (still have to get him good to make him laugh)
-loves to suck on his lips
-Makes a ducky face allll the time..has been doing this forever.
-Loves when I lay my hand on his face while nursing for a nap or night time.
-Nursing 6x a day
-Is fantastically good at copying our sounds exactly.
-VERY good at throwing a ball. We are fascinated! Seriously he throws it right to us.
-Scared but also very curious of the vaccum
-Still the fastest crawler ever created. He probably will never walk cuz he can get around like speedy gonzalez!
-Makes the funniest sounds while eating. Of course is such a good eater.. but is showing signs that he'll for sure be picky!

Theo 8 Mo Old

Theo is a wild man! Maybe it's because he feels like he has to keep up with big brother Finn. But man this kid! Keeps me working thats for sure.

-Crawls up stairs really well.
-Never cries when wakes up (never has, but I think we are just realizing this) Sometimes we wonder how long he's really been awake for.
-Apparently said Mama
-Think it's funny when we brush our teeth. Is super fascinated.
-My favorite crawling baby I've ever seen. He crawls like a bull dog and with force and conviction. Huffs + puffs.
-Nursing 6x a day.
-Laughs hard when we laugh.
-Kicks his feet when he's excited or sees me. If he hears my voice, he instantly cries because he wants me.
-Loves to be on his knees.
-Loves balls!
-Doesn't like when you take something out of his hands... hmm I wonder why!
-Wants to eat everything in site.
-His smile literally lights up a room.

Finn 2.5 Yrs

Finn at 2.5 (31 mo) is SO FUN. He talks up a crazy storm and can keep up any conversation, making us think twice everything that comes out of our mouth (still need to get better at it though..) He has the best sense of direction.. maybe every kid is like this this young, but it blows my mind! For instance, if I tell him we are going to get a smoothie, and go the opposite of the direction from the smoothie place (to make a u turn at the light or something) he knows and says to turn around. He randomly gets shy in front of people, but he's still very very social and enjoys being the center of attention. He is just now starting to not like to share, and especially with Theo. He doesn't even want Theo a couple feet from him when playing with his toys. We are curious if Theo is the reason he gave us a run for our money when he turned 2..-Just started trying to pick Theo up.

Theo 7 Mo

January-Feb 2015 Taken Feb 1

This was probably his biggest month yet. 

Starting to laugh at Finn + Papa, when they play. He wants to join in. Still ultimate Mama's boy! Always likes a good cuddle mesh when I pick him up first thing in the am. He lays his head down in the crook of my neck. Climbs on everything and crawling VERY fast. Wants us to be at his eye level and especially hates it when we turn our backs to him. Loves music and is always calm when it's on. Definitely a sensitive kid. Curious if he always will be? Still only two teeth. Always hungry and is never unhappy when eating. Started copying us when we blow bubbles with our mouths. Starting to talk much more.

Feb 2015 in Newport Beach

Drew's family came down to Newport Beach to spend Presidents Day weekend. We have loved that their time share has been so so so close to us! We spent that day at Crystal Cove beach. At this time, Theo was on the verge of crawling full throttle. He'd do a few here and there but then back to scooting. It was such a fun time!
