Yes, I am a little late with his final monthly birthday post... With all that has been going on this month, I figured I would try to squeeze in a few photos while we were in Indiana instead of trying to rush a post before we left. It turned out very well, considering he is a little more sturdy on his feet these days, plus he's learned a few new tricks!

He is walking up a storm, of course, which started about a week after he turned 10 months-- but he has also learned to wave "bye-bye" and also to "dance" to his favorite tunes. And only today, he learned how to remove the latches of his diaper!! Mommy can't wait to see what kind of craziness comes from that newly developed talent.

Height and Weight: We won't have official stats until his 12 month appointment, but we did weigh him on a regular scale while we were home, and it seems that our boy is right around the 25lb mark. No surprise to us... or to my back. ;)

Sleep: Oh, Lucas... You are such a great sleeper! Even with your teething, I really have nothing to complain about when it comes to your naps or even bedtime. You are usually the one who is insistent that you go to bed! I know with your sister's influence, these days are probably numbered....

Diet:  Anything and everything. He usually eats right off my plate. His favorites are roast, green beans, zucchini, and of course-- banana and avocado. I know that he and I are both excited to stop with the bottle feedings soon. :)

Clothes: Still mostly 12-18 month clothes, but fitting into a few 18 month tops. We're getting ready to order some 18 month pajamas too, because he's outgrowing his 12 month jammies.

Comparison to Big Sis:
 Brynn was in size 3 diapers, Lucas is in size 6 diapers.
Brynn was quite the talker, but Lucas is more quiet and reserved (like Daddy).
I think that Brynn really favored Daddy's side back then, 
while Lucas has "Wilson" written all over his face! :)
Brynn didn't walk until she was 13 1/2 months, and Lucas started walking at 10 months.
They are both extremely fast crawlers and give the best hugs in the world! :)

Lucas' Likes: Walking and "running" everywhere. Playing in the dog bed. Dancing. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Chasing his sister around the house. Going under tables and chairs. Splashing in forbidden water sources.

Lucas' Dislikes: Being told "No."-- He has also learned to throw little tantrums when he doesn't get his way, which he certainly didn't learn from his sister. Not a big fan of spoon feedings anymore either.

Taking & Walking: Still not saying much of anything besides "Da-da" and "Na-na"-- He can wave "bye bye" on command, but doesn't say it yet. We got him to repeat the word "Hot" the other day, because he is so obsessed with helping us when we are cooking on the stove, and he's becoming a little grab-y at the hot pots and pans. Other than that, he's not been very interesting in repeating words. He has started pointing at things and saying "Dat" and he is becoming quite the curious little bug.

runaway baby.  
wherever he is going, it is usually very FAST! :)

Happy, happy 11 months, Lucas!
You are growing up too quickly, but we are enjoying all of the adventures that you take us on.
