11 Months

We are only one month away!! I Can't believe it!! Time sure has flown by. Our little man is SOOOO much fun, and even though watching him grow is bitter sweet, each new stage he reaches is better than the last. He is moving constantly. He loves chasing Lucy around, and he is still obsessed with her food bowls. And yes, this month he actually tried eating dog food... not my most proud parenting moment. But he is just so darn quick. You think you have gotten all of the pieces out of his little death grip, and yet you turn around and there he is chewing on something... yep, that would be dog food. Nice. Well, it didn't kill him, and I guess he likes the taste because he is constantly trying to go back for more. Another fun thing he learned this month is how to climb the stairs. He doesn't really notice them too often because our stairs are off to the side of the living room, but when they do catch his eye it starts about a half-hour obsession with trying to get up them. I know a baby gate will be going up SOON. He is holding fast with his eight teeth. I don't see any more trying to break through for now. He is eating everything, and gone are the days of trying to eat ANYTHING without sharing. He is still sleeping like a champ. 12-13 hrs. a night. Never up before 8am! I know... he is spoiling me. He is really starting to pay attention to books instead of just trying to tear the pages out. He actually listens to the stories and helps turn the pages. His FAVORITE thing is singing songs. He LOVES songs with hand motions. His absolute favorite right now is the itsy bitsy spider. He actually does some of the hand motions, it is SO stinkin' cute! He is pulling up now, but I have a feeling walking is still several months away. He is still "belly crawling" so I think we are safe for a couple more months at least. Well, wish me luck as I try to prepare (mentally) for the big ONE. Nick and I haven't come to an agreement on the party thing yet, so I don't know exactly what that will look like. Just family, family and friends??? Not too sure yet. We shall see.
