11 month update on Baby Cody

I kept thinking, I need to get Cody's 11 month update blogged before he turns ONE... YIKES. He's ONE! I'll post more about his birthday, later :)

About our eleven month old son:

This is the last time we get to announce him as Baby Cody... He isn't a baby anymore. He's totally a little tyke... toddling around and crazy busy.

He has done a great job adapting to whatever environment we are in, but he's like me and Tim... a homebody.

He got his first tooth at the end of June, at still ten months, but barely! (his bottom left)

He has been a champ when it comes to sleeping since we put him in his own bedroom... but we now use a monitor at night. He feels so distant otherwise. {Minus his last week of the month, while teething.}

He started WALKING the last week of July, and can travel all the way across a room.

He got his second tooth in the end of July, too (his bottom right)

He is starting to wean off of nursing, drinking lots of water out of his camelbak or a sippy cup.

He LOVES yogurt, shredded cheese, bread, and quesadillas. He likes ham.

He has taken to really liking maggie. I think he misses her now that she's outside.

He really likes to push things around. You should see him scoot Tim's lunchbox cooler across the floor. He really cruises!

He is now napping once a day unless he sneaks a catnap in here or there for the late morning. Sometimes I get tired of him being so cranky that I put him in the room in his crib for some quiet, alone time, and he'll get rested up enough to come back with a good attitude.

He is definitely a handful! SO SO SO crazy busy.

Happy Birthday, baby boy! | Titus is one

Last year, just after midnight on the morning of Mother's day, this little tyke was born to us! He was a mere 7 pound, 10 ounce baby with fuzzy hair, puffy eyes, and just a perfectly strong boy. He has elfin charm paired with tender kisses. The strawberry blonde fuzz continues to grow up and out, a lighter shade today. We most often find him wanting (whining) to be held, or seeking mischief. He already wants to do what C, J, and A are into... and it causes him many tumbles and tears when he can't keep up or isn't allowed to participate.

We are celebrating this mini man today, on his first birthday! Happy Birthday Titus Andrew!

New Year, New Energy
The sun stays up a few moments more every day now. The cold, hard and dark of late Autumn and into winter is always a challenge for me. It's like they're calling out to me: "you're tired," "you're weary" and they howl threats to take away my joy. As I see the days growing longer again, I get a rejuvenation as I get to see the turn of the calendar, too. The howls seem farther behind now. They're not creeping around my doors anymore. Winter is in a frosty, forward thrust here in Minnesota, and as I watch the sun rise up over the trees, witness the special still and clear mornings of a hoar frost, or see a bright halo around the sun... these each show me it is still cold. But, my spirits are brighter.

Ordering my priorities. Saying No, gives me more Yes time.   When we finished our ministry serving as Missionaries with Oak Hills Center for Indian Ministries after August, our commitments were able to level out to a seasonable p…
