11 Months, almost there

First of all I am sorry the blog post is SO late. I've been up since 4:30am to go to clinicals for 12 hours and I only got home at around 7pm. Honestly I'm pretty proud of myself that I managed to get his 11 month picture done, but I wasn't about to let a little thing like time get in the way of a nearly year long tradition.

     Speaking of year long traditions....HOLY COW. Roxas turns ONE YEAR OLD next month! I absolutely cannot believe he is already 11 months old. It seems like just yesterday we brought him home. It has been amazing watching him grow and learn so many new things. I am regularly astounded by how smart he can be. He knows my "looks" already, especially "If you even think about knocking over [insert object here] you are going to be in trouble" look. This past month he has really learned a lot. He knows several words and they get easier and easier to understand every day. He says "doggie" almost perfectly at times or "Kee-Kee" for kitty when he sees Nala. He even says "gee gee" for grandma. Sometimes I'm really amazed at how he has learned to move, communicate and be his own little person in just a year. A year isn't a lot of time to learn so much and grow so much. He isn't quite walking yet but he stands up on his own without any support quite frequently and he's getting really good at balancing. I *think* he might have another tooth coming in but I've pretty much given up on guessing that. He still just has two little teeth on the bottom.

     I've been planning out his first birthday party and I'm getting excited to celebrate with all our family and friends. We are, of course, doing a Mickey Mouse theme :-) what else did you expect? I was all super duper excited to plan out this super amazing, crazy creative, party and I've had to come to grips with the fact that it's not going to happen. I insist on making the cake but other than that there will be your typical, run of the mill party goings on. The crazy, over do everything, crafty mom in me is going nuts but I just don't have the time. I wish I did. I'm sure he will have just as much fun though, regardless of how not over the top the party will be.

     This past month has been exciting and full of fun new things. I can't wait for the next month to come and celebrate the birth of one of the most precious things in my life.

  1. I sang to him today, "Happy 11 months old Birthday, Roxas", and he answered me back by laughing thru the whole thing!!! We spent the whole day playing the "drop something on the floor game"... saying "Uh-oh" or in his case he says "Ut-Ut", while putting both hands in the air! I may be prejudiced, but he sure is smart! :) He's my lil buddy! ~Gramma
