11 months

This little guy is now 11 months old! Just one more month until the big first birthday! I can't believe it. I am already grieving the fact that my baby soon won't really be a baby anymore. I figure as long as he can't walk I can still call him a baby. And of course he'll still be the baby in our family until a younger sibling comes along.

So at 11 months Jonathan is an active crawler. When we set him down downstairs his goal is to make it up the spiral staircase while we're not looking. Yikes! He loves keys, wallets, and cell phones (basically, all the things he's not allowed to have) and he screams like you've broken his little heart if you take any of the aforementioned items away from him. If we accidentally forget to put the lid down on the toilet we'll often find him happily splashing his hands in the water. He also loves crawling under chairs and through the legs of his high chair. He loves his big sister and wants to be involved in everything she does. Sometimes this causes problems, but for the most part Elisa really likes him too. He prefers to feed himself and he loves fruit: melon, peaches, pears, nectarines, bananas. I was having a hard time figuring out what I could feed him that would have protein, then this week we discovered that he loves refried beans (sometimes with avocado mixed in) and little pieces of tuna fish sandwich. He's finally consistently sleeping through the night!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you tell I'm excited about this one? It helps that he now has his own room (...I mean closet). So anyway, that's a little snapshot of Jonathan at 11 months. We all love him so much and are so thankful that we get to be a part of his little life!

Jonathan looks so excited to be 11 months old. What a cutie and he really is a little sweetheart. I love his smile and his cute little laugh. He and Leesi have lots of fun days ahead of them.

One time I was watching a friend's two small children. I was filming them playing in the hammack...and you guessed it, they both flipped out. Sweet!

The kids are darling. Sorry we missed you last month but it was good to see Greg.
