alternate title: time please slow down
You turned eleven months old yesterday (January 6, 2016).
I am not even sure how eleven months have already passed since you joined our little family.
This was the month of distraction and needing to be on the go. Diaper changes are interesting, to say the least. You are nursing during the day when I remind you that you might want some milk, but even then you would rather be playing. You occasionally use a cup. Food is your favorite. You don't always eat breakfast, but you will eat a morning snack. You eat whatever we are eating (except honey) and often eat more than Sophia at mealtimes. You also like to share your food with Hunter, and he is happy to sit by your side while you are eating.
No teeth have popped through yet, but your little mouth is working on at least four teeth right now. I'm enjoying the last of your gummy little smile. You have no desire to stand or walk and it is rare to see you pull yourself up, although you have started to climb a bit more. You are a speedy little crawler, you love dancing, clapping, talking, laughing, and playing peek-a-boo.
You will occasionally sign 'milk' and 'all done'. This month we heard 'muh' (for milk) and 'duh' (for dog) more than mama and dada. You have a few other words, but are not always consistent when you use them.
You love to be held and sit on our laps. You prefer Sophia's toys (and she prefers yours) and you love to play and laugh with her. Chase is your current favorite game with your big sister.
