11 months!

I must say that this stage of Cayden's life has been my favorite so far. Don't get me wrong..Cayden can drive me bonkers and definately knows how to throw a little fit but he cracks us up everyday and we have soo much fun! Cayden has gone from being shy and reserved to the little entertainer when we are out. Everywhere I go I am stopped so people can say hi to him and of course they are usually women. Cayden loves it and flirts with them...Mike keeps telling him to start getting numbers =).
We had to upgrade Cayden to a "big boy" carseat a few weeks back...I think he enjoys it alot more! Cayden still loves to put everything into his mouth and I am amazed sometimes at the things he can fit in there. The other day Mike found a dime in his mouth..thanfully he didn't try and swallow it! There are even toys I have to hold off until that faze is through because I am too paranoid he will choke...speaking of which, Cayden is still pacifier free and we have not had any issues with is such a relief knowing I am not going to have to stress about taking it away when he actually knew what it was..I dont think Cayden was really ever one of those babies that needed one...he hardly used it as it was..

A couple weeks ago Cayden out-smarted the whole carseat blocking the front entrance and has actually climbed up our stairs a few times! Luckily he didnt get far enough before I noticed. We have gone up with him to try and get him used to it but now we have put the carseat right infront of the stairs and he hasnt gone over it yet..I think I am going to have to give up the gate keeping him out of the kitchen and put it there =(

Cayden is absolutely obsessed with books!! I read to him all day long...we put his books up on a book shelf where he can still reach and he always goes for those and rarely his toys. He loves to pull each and everyone of them out too which cracks me up.

- I love how Cayden's ears magically stop working when he is doing something he isnt sapposed to, every now and then a miracle happens and he will listen but usually he just "doesnt hear us" =)
-Something I find soo cute is alot of times if he is playing on the floor making noises and notices that I have been watching him, he gets all embarassed and just kind of chuckles..its soo cute!
-Cayden has become soo loving, he loves kisses when he does give me some his mouth is always wide open, we think it's halarious. Everytime I am holding him he plays with my hair and I think it's soo sweet, or he will wrap his arms around my neck and just hug me, plus lately he has been laying his head on my chest when he is tired or if I want to snuggle for a minute before I put him down for a nap or bedtime..I just love it and can't get enough of it!
-He has become very good at walking within the last few days or so. He is choosing to walk alot more and is getting pretty quick on his feet!
So I thought it would be fun to see just how much he has grown in these 11 months and I am still amazed everytime I pull out the outfit he came home in just how tiny it is! It is soo hard to imagine him being that small and then I see how much he has grown! I feel like each day he losing the baby in him and looking more like a little boy...
(the only way I could get a pic of him laying on the floor was right after he woke up when he was still sleepy plus the car helped too..just cant see his face)

It's so funny because I look at Cayden and to me he looks older than Seth!!! All that hair! Yeah, I'm a little jealous....but then again, I do agree that everyday we do lose a little bit of the 'baby' in them. So in a way I'm happy Seth is still a baldy :) Yes, he looks HUGE next to his newborn outfit!! Time to have another :) Haha!
