11 Months- My Baby is almost a TODDLER!

I am a terrible blogger. Here is our update for November!

11 Months-
I cannot believe that this is the last month before we have a 1 year old! This boggles my mind. Noah is such a big boy now. He is learning new things so quickly and every day I am surprised. New things that he can do include waving, high fives, cruising on furniture with only 1 hand, making car and boat noises and a whole array of new babbles that we had never heard before like “wooooah!”
He also can purposefully ask to be read to and does this often. When he wants someone to read to him, he hands us the book and says “gook?” He loves books and gets very impatient about reading. We usually get 2 pages in before he shuts the book, climbs off our lap, gets another and yells “gook!” It is very very clear that he is communicating and has things to say. We are getting used to the things he says and does and usually understand what he wants. He mostly says D and G sounds. When he sees a dog he says duk. Close. He favorite sound is “da” so maybe Dada will get a title before Mama will.

Noah also got to visit with some friends this month. We got together with some moms and babies from my moms group. We had a great time in Boston Public Garden and 5 babies was a sight for everyone else to see.

Noah had his first thanksgiving this month! He was a bit overwhelmed and off schedule but had a great time visiting with Nanny and Poppy and Grandma G and Pop John. He like the food but it wasn’t anything new for him really. He is doing pretty well with eating food and we always try to give him what we are having for dinner so he has had all the thanksgiving staples before. He is also doing great with a sippy cup and carried one around all weekend, taking dramatic swigs of cider.

Upcoming festivities-
We are very excited about the milestones that are coming. We can’t wait to put up the Christmas tree and see what Noah does. We hope he doesn’t knock it down and plan on surrounding it with a gate. We want to let him play with the lights and dance to Christmas music.

Most exciting is Noah’s first birthday. I cannot believe my baby is going to be one. We will have a party for him and can’t wait for everyone to celebrate our little man with us. I will probably cry. I can’t believe the year has gone by so fast. We are in a completely different place this year than 1 year ago.
