11 Months!

Eli turned 11 months old yesterday. Here are some of Eli's latest tricks:
  • Loves peek-a-boo, often with people he doesn't know very well
  • Enjoys reading books with us or by himself
  • Babbles with long strings of words only he understands :)
  • Tries to stack blocks and then crashing them down
  • Eats more selectively (he's getting pickier) - grapes are still his favorite food
  • He loves splashing in the tub
  • He goes from one toy to the next at an often frantic, busy pace
  • He loves dumping out toys from bins, bookshelves, baskets, etc.
  • Sometimes he's social, sometimes he's super shy
  • He hates getting his diaper changed
  • He has 8 teeth
  • He is copying/imitating more sounds/words - like "Duck"
  • He had his second haircut last weekend - he screamed and cried the entire time! (We were glad our friend was cutting his hair (not us) since it was kind of traumatic...)

We love this boy so much. Happy 11 months Eli!

He is growing up so fast!! I can't believe he will be a year soon--And he is even more adorable! I am so glad that you have had some good weather!!! It is so hard to have an active baby and NOT beable to go anywhere in the cold! I am not much of a winter person so I like the 80s we are in for down here in Texas this week! I hope your's stays in the 70s for a long time!~~hopefully that dog behaves himself too!! We have a white noise machine that we still use that we got for our condo to try and muffle the sounds and it really did help Kennedy and now Harrison!
