Dear Babypants,

I am a little late in commemorating your 11th month.  Remember when I said I thought that double digits had something in store for us?  I meant full nights of sleep.  Couldn’t have been further from the truth.

We’ve been busy.  I am sure that you probably have noticed that I’ve been burning the candle at both ends.  Burning the midnight oil.   I’ve been up all hours of the night and waking before sunrise.   We have been busy mastering new milestones and developmental goals and continuing to make a mouthful of shark fangs.


You are growing by leaps and bounds. You are thinning out and slowly shedding your baby fat, if that is even possible.  Long lean arms are slowly replacing your little chubby sausage link arms.  You are using your new arms to pull yourself up, to feed yourself, to share your food with mama and dada, to stack and sort and pull your toys, to turn the pages of your favorite board books…and so much more.


You are inquisitive and curious and spend your days exploring your surroundings.  You can be found standing at the front door watching the world go by,  crawling on the grass in the yard or attempting to toddle through the living room.

We spend our days reading board books, stacking and sorting toys, clapping hands, singing songs and occasionally taking naps.  You are understanding cause and effect and enjoy throwing your sippy cup and feeding the dog all of your gluten free spinach puffs from your high chair.

You struggle to understand the cause and effect of sleepless days and nights.  Neither one of us is very happy during these times.  Let’s work on changing that and making sleep a solid part of our routine.  I’m pretty much over the 4 am wake up calls and the all night partying happening between the hours of 11pm and 5am, k?

The last year has been surreal.  I still marvel at watching the transition from babyhood into toddlerhood and still can’t believe that I have a soon to be 12 month old.

Love you around the world and back.  To the moon and back.

    What a sweet post and totally reminds me of my son and daughter at this stage! The sleeplessness is the hardest part of having a new baby. My son sometimes wakes up in the middle of the night for strange reasons. His diaper is too full or he’s extra hungry that night..or hes having a nightmare.or sometimes hes just up!! But at 2, they are fewer and less frequent than when he was under a year old. Thank goodness..I couldn’t take it anymore!!

    Visiting from #SITSSharefest

    Keep it Touched,

    I’ve missed like everything on your blog! I was away for 2 weeks. I’m going to go back a few posts and comment! So exciting writing letters to our children. I just finished the 18 month post for my son. It is so funny how we are under the impression that as they get older that sleep will be better. LOL! I have found that going with my little guy’s cues and learning him has helped me to develop some sort of schedule. You learn as you go…adapting to him and hubby’s schedules is what I do best! I was laughing out loud at the part about him throwing the gluten free spinach puffs at the dog! Too funny! xoxo

    I’m happy I came across your blog! What a cutie : ) Someday he’ll be able to look back and see these love notes from his momma – that is so amazing to me. Sorry for your lack of sleep : / I’m sure there are moments that make it all worthwhile : ) I’m excited to catch some of your “mostly clean” recipes!
