Today you are 11 months old. It's hard to believe that in just one month you will be a year old. Time really has gone by quickly. We have realized that you are now more a toddler than a baby as we find that you are ever so independent! This past month you have started pulling up on furniture and taking steps. You are well on your way to walking. It is really exciting to see you let go of whatever you are holding on to and just stand by yourself. I never could imagine you doing that when I was holding my 8 pound baby just 11 months ago. And, you are still very quick with crawling...the kitchen cabinets seem to be your favorite when you are helping me cook dinner.
You also love trying on mommy and daddy's glasses. The verdict is out though...which one of us do you look like??
I think you look like Ralphie on "A Christmas Story" with my glasses on!
Besides surviving your first road trip to North Carolina and visiting Santa Clause, you have been getting into the holiday spirits with us. You helped us with our Christmas shopping, and played a wonderful "toy tester" roll. We took you to Toys R Us and you picked out all your own gifts. It will be fun to watch you open them his year!
And finally, you are growing like a weed. You are now wearing 18-24 month clothes, and you are about 27 pounds and very tall. I guess you will be following your daddy on that one. Oh, and you still only have the two bottom teeth, but I am sure you have a couple more coming this month. It doesn't seem to be stopping you from chomping on all those foods you love.
We so enjoyed all the laughs, play times, snuggles and smiles this past month!
