You are 11 months old!
You’ve said Mama – exactly one time – and I magically caught it on tape to prove it. 😋
I can tell that your comprehension of language is growing every day. And you talk up a storm when you feel like it. Your favorite “words” are still duddy, da-da, da-ga, and grrrrrr. 😂
You like giving raspberry kisses and hugging your face close to mama and papa’s faces. You think nose kisses are funny.
You have strong opinions about things. You prefer “brushing” your own teeth and you’d rather not wear diapers. You also want whatever it is that I don’t want you to have. 😋
You have started to walk a few weeks ago – a couple steps here and there. You’re so joyful and adventurous. I think that’s why you started crawling early too. So much to see, lots of places you needed to get to! ❤️
You love banging toys. On the wall, on tables, on other toys. You like taking apart your puzzle mat and playing your version of hide and seek: you speed crawl away (behind your bed) and then look back to see if I’m following you and if I am you crack up laughing! 😂
You love books, especially “I love you more and more” – thx Sha Sha!!, and “Kiss goodnight, little bear!” And Chu’s Day (thx, Naomi!).
Some days I look at you and your face looks so grown, not old, just different. Like a boy, not a baby.
We keep busy: we go to brunch, the library, to playdates, OMSI, Hammer and Jack, hikes, on bear-ventures (like pumpkin patches, hayrides, and salmon hatching).
I love you baby bear. Next month is your birthday. 🎈
Hanging with Papa.
You and Isi.
