Corbin Travis: 11 Months

12 Mar

Corbin turned 11 months on February 22, so this post is hideously late but better than never, right? (And actually, I wrote it just a few days after he turned 11 months, but never got around to taking his 11-month photos.) Size

Corbin is getting too big for his 12-month clothes but 18-month clothes are still a little too big on him, so he’s in between sizes. He’s still wearing size 5 diapers and 9-12 month soft-soled shoes.

Sleeping

Corbin’s sleeping habits haven’t changed much in the past month. He usually goes to bed between 5 and 6 PM, wakes up once between 3 and 5 AM, and is up for the day between 5 and 6 AM.

He still takes 2 naps, usually 1.5-2 hours long. His awake time is still about 3 hours between naps.

When he’s not sick, Corbin falls asleep on his own. But Corbin got sick again this month, just a week before he turned 11 months. He has a runny nose, bad cough, and is whiny and wants to be held all day. His sisters were diagnosed with strep and Influenza A. (We found out later that he tested positive for both RSV and Influenza A. Poor bud!)The one nice thing about him being sick was all the baby snuggles. I got to rock him to sleep several nights, which he’s never allowed. Eating

When he’s sick, Corbin has very little desire to eat table foods. And even when he’s not sick, he often gets sick of foods and doesn’t eat things he previously gobbled up. So this past month, his favorite foods have been a moving target. But he usually likes pretty much any kind of meat, grapes, teething wafers, graham crackers, PB&J sandwiches, yogurt, avocado, baby cereal, tortellini, and cheese. He’s been eating cheese for the past couple weeks with no problems, so that’s good.

Unfortunately, he seems to get an upset stomach from strawberries. He also is not a fan of blueberries, broccoli, and banana. When he doesn’t like something or is done eating, he waves his hand in front of his face like he’s rubbing his eyes, which usually ends up making a mess with whatever you were trying to feed him.

He usually drinks 4 oz of formula when he wakes up, before both his naps, and at bedtime.

He got his eighth tooth this month, giving him 4 on the bottom.Development

Corbin has started pulling up on things, though only lower surfaces. He still hasn’t pulled himself up in his crib.He is still army crawling. He gets up on his hands and knees a lot, and tries to crawl, but ends up giving up. He can move his hands just fine; I think he’s having a hard time figuring out what to do with his legs.

He loves crawling under and over things. He crawls under our coffee table often, and on top of the rollercoaster toy we have in our basement.He enjoys standing at his activity table and at the edge of the tub watching his sisters take a bath, but he is still pretty wobbly and needs supervision in case he falls over. He hasn’t quite figured out how to get down from a standing position, but a few times he has looked down at his feet while standing and fallen onto his bottom by accident.

His favorite babbling sound is dadada. He also loves to shriek.

He loves being thrown up into the air, and he still loves going outside (can’t wait to see what he thinks about being outside when it’s actually enjoyable!).

And that’s Corbin at 11 months!
