11 Months Old!

Can I first say, seriously? You are 11 months old? Connor Francis, I don't know where the time has gone? Your daddy asked me today what the date was and I replied with "we have an 11 month old!!" he was laughing, the 17th already? I can't believe that next month we will be celebrating your FIRST birthday. I am so excited for you and I can't wait to watch you enjoy your party and your cake! It is such a special day and you are quite the special little boy.
What have you been up to this month? You are always, always, always on the go! You don't stop and you are getting so fast! Granny said you are even learning how to move things out of your way when you don't want to be contained in a certain spot anymore! You have the best personality - you have a stubborn streak and you let us know when you aren't happy - but most of the time you are giggly, smiley and happy! Your laugh is absolutely contagious. We can't contain ourselves when you laugh and make it a point to make you laugh as often as we can. You get SO excited when daddy, granny, nene, aunt jen, grandpa, nana or I comes in the room. You will crawl over and wait at our feet, just in case we aren't getting to you and swooping you up fast enough! You are pulling yourself up on everything - no mountain is too high for you these days! You climb over things and nothing seems to stop you. You are starting to let go and stand on your own - oh my! You can walk holding our hands and you are terrorizing your walking toy, but no steps on your own yet. We were saying the other day we aren't sure if we are ready for a walking boy in the house, but we know it's coming soon. I can't decide if I think you will be walking before your first birthday or shortly thereafter. You still love the lights and the fan and on our morning snuggles you like to turn the light on above our bed. You are so happy when you wake up and just screech with delight when one of us comes to get you, we usually fight over who gets to get you up from nap time! Then you immediately point towards our bed and go "ooohh" saying momma, it's time to snuggle! You are eating a combination of baby food and finger foods. You want to make the switch to finger foods, but you aren't quite ready yet. You love to eat cheerios and rice squares and we found out the other day you hate cottage cheese! You have SIX teeth now, your two bottom middle and the four top middle. You have really been a good baby when it comes to teething, we hate it so much when we can tell you are in pain. You are still taking your two naps a day and doing great! You love to stand up in the bathtub and your new favorite game is peek-a-boo. You just love it! The wheels on the buss is still your favorite, especially when momma sings it. Heaven help you child, your momma has a terrible voice! I said I should make a recording of myself singing it so we always have one around in case we need it, but daddy begged me not to! You love riding in shopping carts these days, your face lights up and you have so much fun coming along for the ride. We are just about to celebrate your last "first" holiday and I can't quite believe it. You are a beautiful, happy, sweet, precious little boy and we are so blessed to have been given the opportunity to raise you. We love you so much and can't wait to see what this next month brings! We love you stinky face! :)
