Eleven months. My sweet boy is already 11 months! His personality is becoming more evident: sweet, funny, insistent, determined, and losing a bit of cuddliness (but still cuddly when I time it right). We find him chuckling to himself often and I can get a smile with just a small tilt of my head. He's… Continue reading Time for Motherhood: Finn at Eleven Months
