11 months and Dedication
Last week Andersen turned 11 months old and on Sunday we had him dedicated at church. Walking is now his preferred method of transportation. Sleeping was going great until, of course, that eighth tooth decided to cut. We’ll get there again, I know. Parks have suddenly become exhausting with him. He doesn’t like the swing and always wants to be down on the ground. Which wouldn’t be a problem if the child didn’t eat bark and dirt and rocks. Of course he throws a colossal fit if I stop him. So often other parents and even friends will point out to me, “He’s eating _____.” I respond with, “Yep” and then continue with what I was doing. But it’s getting old, and I can only let him eat so much. So we aren’t avoiding parks entirely, but we aren’t hitting them every day like we typically would this time of year. That about sums it up!
