11 Months

Next month I will no longer have a baby.  It is a bitter sweet thought.

At 11 months, Hunter is:
-taking steps.  He is not consistently walking yet.  He just stands there laughing and clapping most of the time.  Silly boy.
-standing up without using anything to pull up on.  Carl got to witness this for the first time.  He finally got to see him do something first!
-signing more, drink, and sometimes eat.  They are all approximated.  He will combine more and drink together.  LOVE IT!
-improving his receptive language skills all the time.  He understands most of what we tell him to do.  He now crawls down the hall, stops in front of the night light, looks at us and shakes his head "no" then continues on.  It is so funny.
-knows his usual clothing items go on his body.  Obviously he can't put them on by himself, but he will try to put his socks on his feet, shirt on top of his head, diaper under his butt, and shorts on his leg.
- babbles all the time.  He is now "barking" at the dog (Koal doesn't even bark, but we have taught him that dogs bark).
-still in size 4 diapers, 12-18 month clothes... although his waist is getting slimmer so some shorts that were snug on his waist are no longer that snug.
-eating a lot of table foods.  He loves spaghetti.  Knock on wood, Hunter hasn't had any allergic reactions to milk products we have been introducing to him.  He loves the yogurt melts Gerber makes.
-has 7 teeth, 3 on top, 4 on bottom.  And it looks like he is going to be getting another on the top and the bottom soon.
-really independent now in his The Little Gym class.  He just goes off to other parents and sits next to them or goes to gym equipment.  It is just so amazing to see how much he has grown!
-giving kisses.  So cute.
-will point to my nose when asked, "Where is Mommy's nose?" about 80% of the time (depending on his mood).  If he doesn't want to play this "game" he just looks at me and tries to crawl away.
-still approximating the same words, but has added bubbles to the list.
