Dayton: 11 Months

We were traveling over your 11 month birthday, so this is a little late! We've had a very, very busy month! Wow, your daddy and I just cannot believe how big you are getting. Every day we look at each other and say, "Where did this big boy come from?"

We think you weigh about 22 lbs and will see how much you've grown just after your 1st birthday when we visit Dr. Davis.

How cute are you this month (and every month!)?

Here's what you've been up to this month:

-You used a spoon for the first time on January 30th and are a huge fan. We still do lots of finger foods, but you love to try your best to get food in your mouth with a spoon!
-You have started throwing a ball. This is one of mommy's favorite things to do with you. You have a soft soccer ball you love to throw!
-You have now signed please! It can take a lot of convincing from mommy.
-We noticed that you clapped your hands on February 8th! You were so proud of yourself. Now you're clapping all the time. You've even started clapping at the right moment during your beloved Baby Einstein videos.
-Grandpa Bills taught you how to "ah-choo!" You have the cutest little fake sneeze, complete with you throwing your head back!
-You have started using your new push toy! You can walk behind it on the rug, but on the hardwood it moves too quick and you crawl behind it.
-You are so, so ticklish. Daddy doesn't even have to be tickling you, just wiggling his fingers makes you go into a riot!

Here are more pictures of your sweetness this month!

Daddy and I are so excited to celebrate your 1st birthday in a few weeks. We are incredibly blessed to have you as a part of our family. God knew what he was doing!!!
