11 Months!

 I am a little behind with this one, but baby boy is 11 months old!! It sees the crazy time of year after Halloween and before Christmas has now become even crazier - as we have a big birthday in there!  I can't believe the big boy is almost one...the speed that time goes by is not even comprehensible to me.  Here is a little bit about our man at 11 months. :)

As soon as I sat him down in the chair, he climbed up and started grabbing at his bouncer. He is a little monkey lately and he is moving in new ways (and new places!) every day.  He has pulled himself up to stand a few times (most recently to reach some chalk..yum).  He is crawling and climbing and exploring...and his sister are on high alert for choking hazards. :) He loves trying to grab for those crayons and chomp chomp away!
 Flying toward mommy with the camera!  Busy busy boy.

 He is just the sweetest boy.  He wants to be cuddled and loved, and loves to play with his sisters.  He laughs and bounces and gets all excited when he sees his Daddy.  And he is mildly obsessed with Mommy. ;)  He cries when I leave the room, and sometime just needs me to be near him and he will be content.  He will lay his little head on my shoulder when I'm holding him, if someone comes over to talk to him.  He will smirk and lay down.  It's as if he is saying, "I like you, you can talk to me, just don't take me from Mama." 

 Sissy making him laugh. :)

 He does this precious little "growl" when he wants to be silly, he will open his mouth up really wide like a smile, and say "Raaaaaahhh!"  He will always squeal and scream as his sisters will.  If they are making noises or screeching (common sound in our house, ha), he will join right in wanting to be one of the crew.

 He is in size 24 months right now, and we are getting him 2T from here forward.  Crazy growing boy!

He has just perfect hair.  He got his first trim last month!  And he just has the cutest little man head of hair. I love how his hair makes him looks like he is a little old fashioned boy.

My favorite time is when he first wakes up, he is just this little snuggle face.  His eyes are like a puppy, and his mouth and cheeks seem to hang even lower than normal.  His hair is all ruffled, and his baby smell is even better than when he went to sleep.

He is starting to show even more personality, and letting his opinions be known!  He yells when he does not get his way.  And don't even try to walk away from him while you are feeding, him, because he will react like you are abandoning him forever.  It's funny when he does this, because most of the time he is so relaxed and will just chill out without a care in the world. (Since we call him Bruiser, and he is always just chilling out, we call this "Bruisin'".  So whenever we say, what's Dec up to?  The other will often answer, "He's just bruisin'". :)

We love you little boyfriend.  We love your grunts, we love your growls.  We love your cheeks.  We love your curiosity. But most of all, we love your smile that lights up the room, and your giggle that makes every single other person is our house laugh too.  You sweet angel boy.
