Amos is Eleven Months Old!

Age of Baby: 11 months

Size of Baby:
  • Weight: 18 lbs 3 oz (up to the 4th percentile), +13 oz from last month
  • Length: 29 inches (up to the 41st percentile), +1 inch from last month
  • Head circumference: not measured
  • Height-to-Weight ratio: down to the 3rd-10th percentile
Amos is still wearing a size 3 diaper and mostly 9-12 month, or 12-month, clothes. He still wears a size 3 shoe.


None this month.

Doctor's Visit Summary:

No visit this month.

Picture of Baby:

Here is Amos's 11-month picture in the 12-month onesie. I can't believe he will be turning one next month. Seriously, where did this past year go?!?

And here is a comparison of all three of the boys at eleven months, just for fun. Ethan and Noah were still bigger at this point (Ethan was 29 inches long and weighed 19 lbs 8 oz and Noah was 29.5 inches long and weighed 19 lbs 6 oz), but Amos is definitely gaining on them now.

Ethan, Noah, and Amos (each at 11 months)

Accomplishments this Month:
  • Walking!!
  • Waving
  • First road trip with Mommy
  • Ordered his first kid's meal
Our little man has recently taken his first steps!! He finally got brave enough to let go and keep moving instead of just standing. He's quickly picking it up and it won't be long before he's a pro!

I swear he must still be teething, as I can't keep anything out of that boy's mouth!! As you can see, plastic containers aren't safe. Neither are door hinges, cabinet handles, fireplace doors, phone chargers, Legos, cars, the smallest toys he can find, etc. Seriously. There is nothing that boy won't try to chew on! :/ I currently promote heavy usage of the paci, mainly to discourage other items from making their way into his mouth!! Sigh.

Amos has started to wave back when people wave at him. He's always smiling and flirting whenever we are out. The boy loves an audience! And wow, does he look like quite the big boy standing up there next to Noah!! :'/ Even though this is the 3rd time we've been through this stage, it still never ceases to amaze me how fast they grow and change!

Amos was a great little traveler last month when I made a trip to Ohio to see my mom after her heart surgery. The big boys stayed home with Daddy (and had lots of fun of their own!), but Amos had to come with me. Thankfully, he was a better-than-usual sleeper for the car rides and at night, while we were there! While there, I ordered him his first meal all to himself, too! We normally share from our plate, or from his big brothers, so this was new for him. And for the record, he ate his entire pancake. ;)

New Foods tried this Month:
  • Fish
  • Okra
Amos has settled into an eating routine now. For breakfast, he eats Cheerios, and sometimes a banana. For lunch, he has some peas and corn, a couple slices of turkey, 1/2 slice of bread and 1/2 slice of cheese. For dinner, he eats whatever we are eating, and lots of it! I've also continued to nurse him every 3-4 hours during the day (around 7:15 am, 10:45 am, 2 pm, 5 pm, 8 pm, and at some point during the night) for around 5-10 minutes.

Amos had yet another rough month in the sleep department. He slept through the night just 3 nights during the past 30 days. Sigh. Fortunately, he is at least averaging around 12.5 hours of sleep a day (10.5 hours at night and 2 hours during the day). He is now going to bed around 8 pm, and sleeping until between 7 and 7:30 am. He has started taking his nap in the morning again. Due to the earlier wakeup (everyone's schedule has been adjusted due to Ethan starting kindergarten in July!), he is ready to nap earlier than he had been. So, he usually naps from around 11 am until 1 or 2 pm. He is normally very ready for bed at his earlier bedtime now as a result!
