11 Months, I Think He is Mine!

Our sweet baby is 11 months old this weekend! Yes, that is right less than one month until he turns one! I can’t believe it! Birthday party planning is well under way. From the moment Sterling was born everyone said “wow, he looks exactly like Matt.” Even now when I am out shopping sometimes strangers will stop me and say”He must look like his daddy because he sure doesn’t look like you.” I don’t know why this bothers me, but it does. I think Matt is the most handsome man I have ever laid eyes, so of course I want my son to look exactly like him. But sometimes I want to hear, “Sterling looks just like you”. As he enters into his 11 month of life he is now starting to resemble me a little bit, and exhibit some signs that show he is most definitely my son. Here are just a few tell-tell signs that this baby boy is just like his mama!

He loves the phone and is obsessed with a Blackberry.

He likes to read the latest gossip and style magazines

He loves to shop

He is a back sleeper

He loves browsing/playing in my closet

He has a strong affinity for jewelry

He loves a bath and has no modesty issues

Yes, wheter he looks like me or not, I think he takes after me! Happy 11 months to the most beautiful baby in the world. I love you more each day that passes. You make me whole and give my life a new meaning.

    My sweet Sterling!!! Can't believe that beautiful baby will be 1 in a month!!! Listen if anyone can relate it's me, hello Carson looks like Todds clone! That's OK though at least we have hotties for husbands 🙂

    Happy 11 months to Sterling! I've been reading your blog for a couple of months now and I can honestly say that aside from his hair I thought he looks so much like you. Your nose and eyes are just the same!

    What an endearing post! I also get that so much, "he looks just like your husband" but I always say he's got my "sunshiney disposition"! He is seriously Adorable, whoever he looks like! And I can't believe he's all over the big tub- James is still in the little tiny baby tub! 🙂

    I was cleaning off my desk at home last night and found some baby pictures of you that we used to decorate for the shower last year. As I was looking at them I was thinking how much he looks like you as a baby!! The smile, the nose, and the eyes all look just like you! (Oh, and I have the pictures in my car to give to you next time I see you:)
