Simon's 11 Month Update

A little late to posting this, and I completely missed his 10 month update. Simon has grown leaps and bounds over the last few weeks! The last update I did was when Simon was 9 months old. Since then  a lot has changed. So let's jump right in...
Simon weighs just under 21 pounds, I don't remember how tall he is. His next doctor appointment is his 1 year check up! AHH! I can't believe that.
Sleeping has been pretty good overall. He usually takes two naps a day, sometimes just one. It all depends on what errands we run that day. A morning nap between 10-11, for about an hour. Then an afternoon nap around 3/4 for about an hour. Sometimes he is just not about that nap time life and will skip his afternoon nap. We all suffer! haha. Simon goes to bed at 8:30 and will wake up just once in the night to nurse, then goes back to bed. It will either be around 3 or sometimes he doesn't wake up til about 5 then goes back to sleep til about 730/8am and wakes up for the day.
We've definitely got an eater on our hands. His breastfeeding schedule has definitely slowed down. He usually nurses about 6 times in a 24 period. Usually about 8am, 11am, 3pm, 6 (sometimes skips this one), and 830 for bed. He also eats breakfast, lunch, and dinner with us when we eat, and a snack here and there.
Well, we have a walker! So there is that. He started taking a few steps around 10.5 months and is walking all the time now, and prefers it to crawling. That is the biggest milestone in the last two months for sure. He doesn't really say any words yet, besides mama, dada, and I think he tries to say night night. But that's about it. He also gives high fives and kisses, which is adorable!
He has a lot of new teeth! He now has 4 on top and two on bottom, which is so crazy to me! Adeline was just getting her first tooth at this age.
His first haircut also happened! It was bittersweet, but his hair looks much better now and he did a great job.
He also had his first major injury! :( Simon dove off the couch and fractured his wrist! Poor baby, I felt so bad for him. He had to wear a splint for two weeks, but that is now off and he is back to using that wrist.
These two are quite the pair. I love that they are already so close! They love hanging out with each other and just being together. Simon a lot of the time thinks she is playing with him, when in reality she is just trying to get away from him! Hah. They've started to actually play together, today they were throwing and rolling the ball back and forth! I hope they stay the bestest of friends. Don't worry, I know hard times are ahead, but I can dream, right? :)
 We love this little guy and can't believe he is already almost one! It just seems like yesterday that he was born, time is sure flying by!
Have a great evening! :)
