During last months update I talked about the month being a bit of a whirlwind of highs and lows and this month was very similar. However, I absolutely love this age. Freddie cracks me up every single day, he is just so funny and mischievous and his personality shines though more and more each day. I feel so proud that he is mine and that I have helped to shape the little person he is becoming.
On the other hand, I feel incredibly emotional that the next time I write an update, Freddie will be a year old. To say his first year has flown by is a total understatement. Of course, he will always be my baby but it is so bittersweet. I will be talking about that more including his first birthday preparations and gift ideas but for now, here is an update on Freddie at eleven months old.

I know I said this in last months update, but I really, really can not believe I have an eight month old. That just seems far too grown up and far too close to his first birthday. Every milestone that Freddie reaches is just so bittersweet. I felt such an overwhelming sense of pride when Freddie began to crawl this month (more about this later!) but then a couple of moments later found myself having a little cry because watching him move around the room on his own just looked too grown up. At the same time though, this age has been my favourite so far. Freddie is expressive and is starting to show me what he wants and express likes and dislikes too. He has his own sense of humour and can be very headstrong when he doesn’t get what he wants. Freddie is very easy going generally and taking him out and about is so much easier now. We recently had a little family holiday at Center Parcs and he was such a dream to take away (besides having to share a room again which did not go well!). I am both apprehensive and excited to see what the next month will bring!
