Dear Oskar // 11 Months

No one seems to want to acknowledge that you are 11 months, it is always “almost 1.” Which yes, this is true, you are almost one year old, but I don’t want this month to be a countdown. I want to celebrate THIS month and THIS age. Alright, alright… I may be a little sensitive about the upcoming birthday, but you have a few weeks of 11 months left, so lets focus on that and forget about all that mushy mumbo jumbo I’ll end up writing next month.

You point at everything saying “whasat” and sometimes “whasis” so I’m obviously convinced you mean “what is that?” and “what is this?” You like your toys just fine, but they are no match for your dad’s phone charger and Mischa’s water bowl. Thankfully, these two things have not been played with together. But you’re quick and I’m often distracted, so it’s only a matter of time.

There is a lot of walking with your IKEA cart,¬†giving kisses, screaming as the cat runs by, and annoying the dog. We take a walk every morning and often see deer, and recently the baby deer. It’s so exciting when you spot them all by yourself and get really excited.

You are a wild child, Oskar. Your smiles and silliness make up for the exhaustion and chaos. Being a work at home mama is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but anytime I feel like it’s all too much I think about how lucky I am to spend my days with you… and then I look into halfday daycare.

Sight: Sometimes I let Oskar join me in watching my guilty pleasure…. So You Think You Can Dance.

Smell: When we use disposables, I’ve been using these wipes. I really like how soft and not overly soapy they are.

Sound: Loves playing his xylophone and turns everything and anything into a drum, just like his dad.

Taste: Watch out, this kid wants to steal your snacks. Pretzels, veggie chips, whatever it is, Oskar wants it.

Touch: The past few nights I’ve noticed as Oskar lays down to sleep he grabs and cuddles his blanket, it’s so sweet.

    Dear Senses Five, I read your blog for a while now… but I have to tell you this was the nicest post I’ve read so far! It was so tender and sweet! The way you described little Oskar choices! Maybe because soon I will be a mum as well…but I thought it was really sweet!
    Enjoy the summer and every age/month of your baby!
