11 months old!

I am officially 11 months old on 9/30! Only one month to go until I am a big boy at a year old! Mommy is about to send out invitations for my pirate themed birthday party on Nov 1st! I also have my halloween costume- a pirate!!! I plan to wear it for my birthday party too.

I now have 2 teeth on the bottom middle. I can clap, play peek a boo, make new sounds, including humming type noises with my mouth closed. I am close to walking, but not quite there yet. I am also about to move into the big boy classroom at day care - the 12-18mos room. I am excited about that too. I am also drinking 4 bottles a day- but actually 2 of those 4 are sippy cups of formula so I can get used to cups instead of bottles. I still nap twice a day, but it might go to once a day in my new class. I eat regular table food at day care now too. I love veggies, chicken and cinnamon raisin bread and pancakes! Mommy just bought me a huge tub of animal crackers and I love those too.

Mommy and Daddy bought me this 'Cars' themed little car that I love! I can ride it or walk behind it. Here is Daddy playing with me on it! It makes all sorts of great sounds and noises.....cha cha cha cha pow!

I am just really into cars right now. Anything with wheels I can push around. So mommy bought me a smaller one I can use on my high chair!
I also love playing ball. I'll even throw the ball to you! Here I am with my favorite ball. I like to watch it bounce and chase it around the house. The dogs sometimes get confused and think it is their ball though.

I am pretty laid back and easy going, so of course I just find anything to play with, like this pillow- hours of entertainment on end!
And here I am playing with TWO cars at once. I was moving them both and crashing them! MAma and Papa (grandparents) got the cool dump truck for me.

I started my swim lessons and this was my second week. Mommy had a baby shower to go to and didn't want to get wet, so Daddy got in the pool with me. I love playing with the balls in teh water. Here we are on the water jungle gym
And yes, we are supposed to be practicing hanging on to the side, but i prefer to eat it instead.
And riding the magic carpet in the pool!
Here's my best bud Sassy and I. She actually lets me pet her. Tinkerbell doesn't though, she usually runs away.
See, I am gentle. good dog!
Okay, now I am going in for a lick!
Shennigan's under the coffee table!

And here I am being extremely silly while I eat dinner the other night. I was making all sorts of 'grunting' noises. My cousin Mikey does 'strong man' where he flexes and grunts, so I was probably trying to copy him. video
Then here I am pushing my car around. I love pushing toys around- whether they are cars or on wheels or not. Mommy and Daddy are taking me to get some big cars this weekend hopefully!
I also love playing with balls. IN fact I said the word ball this week! Then went and got it!

10 months old and Daddy's birthday

I am officially 10 months old now (Aug 30th)! I am doing so many new things. I love to ride my little car. I eat a lot of table food now and will soon start eating lunch at day care instead of jar food. They've already given me snacks there like raisin bread which I love! It was also Daddy's birthday on August 31st! I also started my swim lessons this weekend. I'll have them every Saturday morning for the next year basically. We sing and play and I really have a good time. I am babbling all the time too- saying new sounds and words. My one tooth finally peaked through and now I think maybe some more are in the works.
Mommy took some pictures of me after a bath!









Here is daddy feeding me some mashed potatoes!
