Our Julian Koki is 11 months old! Which means that in one short month he will be a 1 year old! Yes, I know you can probably figure that math out yourselves, but I had to type it out to make it feel real. Still doesn’t though. Read on to find out what our busy, busy boy is up to at 11 months old! We love you beyond measure baby Jules.
Biggest Milestones: Baby Jules stood up independently for the very first time yesterday! I must admit, I thought he would be a little late with this milestone because his head is 110th percentile! That’s a lot to support for a little guy. I was so thrilled to witness this one! He walks with his walker, or along furniture more and more. And his crawling is still too fast for me.
Talking: Julian is still a chatter box. He says yeah-yeah, mama, dada, nana and dodo the most. I’m still not sure when to call it a “first word” though. What’s your take?
Eating: This guy eats it all! He loves feeding myself (with his hands) so lately it’s been a lot of berries, noodles, bits of chicken and cheese. I swear he eats more than anyone else in the house. But he does feed the puppy quite a bit, so maybe that honor goes to Jet.
Sleeping: Our guy is still a wonderful sleeper. He takes two naps a day, and sleeps through the night. Unless he’s teething, then all bets are off.
Favorite activity: Apart from eating, Julian loves bath time! He gets excited if he even sees the tub. He plays with all of the bottles, the rubber ducky and the bubbles. My personal favorite is when he stands in the tub and does a little dance. You can see the cuteness that is Julian at bath time on our nighttime routine post.
Favorite book: I keep meaning to switch it up, but I am hooked on reading Jules this sweet “My Dreams” book by Xavier Deneux from Barna and Co. The book has texture, metallics and even glows in the dark! It is the perfect bedtime storybook. Jules especially loves the “sometimes-whee!-I sail among the stars on my magic carpet…”
One thing I never want to forget: It only lasted for a few days, but Julian was giving kisses to his dada and I on the mouth when we would say “kiss!” It made my heart melt! But now I have to steal all of my kisses! Apparently this guy doesn’t have time for smooching at the moment. I still love every one of those stolen kisses though!
