My baby boy is 11 months old today. Officially one month away from turning the big ONE! I have no idea how time went this quickly but I digress. My dear Jimmy is now walking. Not all the time but a good portion of the day. Gives high 5s, claps, waves & is one of the happiest babies I have ever seen. He has a beautiful smile & when he's really happy he smiles with his entire face, especially his eyes. He is super playful. And we discovered this month that he thoroughly loves balloons. May have to invest in some of those for his birthday party. He understands commands like "Sit Down", "No" & "give me that please" but he only does what he wants. For example I have been trying to teach him how to sign "All Done" instead of throwing his food off the tray but I just get exasperated looks & very happy bangs on the tray. After months of reading to him he finally likes to pick up the books himself & look at the pictures. He is really good with a sippy cup now & even drinking out of that makes him smile. I feel very lucky to have 3 wonderful boys & as you can see Jimmy is one of our happier boys. Could just be that he doesn't understand all the chaos around him & he hasn't gotten tired of my picture taking yet.
