11 months

Our boy at 11 months
-He started walking! He has been taking 3 steps at a time but several nights ago he took 9 steps. He walked all the way across the room to my mom and then did that several more times that night. He does not like to walk when you try to make him.
-He does this thing where he points his finger at you and bounces it up and down. He normally does it when he is excited to see someone. 
-He imitates us a lot more. He claps when we do, waves bye-bye, blows bubbles in the bath water and even tried to mimic Paul beat boxing the other night. 
-He got his first molar. Ouch! Both his first bottom molars started coming in at the same time but only one side is through. That's 9 teeth total now!
-He started eating more pureed baby foods. He still gags a lot when we try to give him soft chopped up things or finger foods. You would think he would be such a good eater with all those chompers.  
-He still loves water. There is a kiddie pool at our apartment we have been talking him to. He loves playing around in there with us. 
-He loves trying to make us laugh. He will throw himself around on our bed and if we start laughing he does it over and over again.
-This week he has started acting so much older in the way he plays and interacts with us. He climbs things, explores, intently inspects and looks like he is thinking and learning so much in the midst of everything. 

He is such a joy for us to have! We are so grateful!
