Jeremiah is 11 Months Old!

Jeremiah is 11 months old! (As of 2 days ago... slight delay in posting!)

It's so hard to believe that in one month, my little cutie will be a year old! It's going so fast! 
He is a wonderful, sweet boy.  He is very happy and silly.  People comment on how cute and happy he is when we go places!
He is now 26 pounds!  He was 26 pounds 7 ounces, got sick and was 25 pounds 8 ounces, but rebounded about a week later. Yes, the poor thing got really, really sick. Combination of a stomach virus and a double ear infection. At the hospital, they tried 3 times to do an iv, did a different blood draw, and two intramuscular injections (are you starting to see why this post is a couple days late?). It was torturous for him and for us watching!
He was starting to improve on sleep, but since he's been sick, it's gotten much, much worse.  He's waking up about 10 times a night -seriously.  This is also the first time he's slept NOT in my arms while I've been around him for over a week.  So, Christmas cards? Yeah, still need to be mailed out. Gifts? Still to wrap. Blog? Nope.

One area that has grown a ton this month is talking. A couple of weeks ago, he put two words together for the first time. He saw me making his bottle and said "Mama, baba." (Baba is what he calls his bottle.) He also says "Eo" for "Leo," "Eia" for "Leia," "mama," "dada," and "hi."  He also babbles a lot with other noises.
This past month, he transitioned to mainly formula, and I gave up pumping.  He gets about one bottle a day from what I froze.  He also eats 3 meals a day of finger food and purees most days.  He likes his food and gets excited when we put him in his high chair and put his bib on. His favorites seem to be cheese, eggs, sweet potatoes, and cheerios.
He is such a little joy!
