Eleven Months Old

Hamilton is 11 months old today, and I can hardly believe it. He's crawling, sitting himself up, quickly walking while holding on to furniture, and standing for three seconds by himself. He's made great strides in his mobile abilities this month, but he still only uses two signs. He's still talking a lot, smiling at everyone, and eating like a champ.
He now has three teeth: his two bottom-middle teeth and one up top. The top tooth, however, is not a middle tooth but a side tooth. He's started biting his Cheerios with his bottom teeth, like he's figured out they can chomp into food. We gave him ice cream tonight for the first time, since we went as a family to Ye Olde Fashioned after dinner. He, of course, loved it. In true addict fashion, he cried between bites and after it was taken away. I'm not sure we'll try that again soon.
He continues to play in his playpen by himself nearly every day, giving me some time not spent chasing or watching him. He loves music and singing, and he "dances" to nearly any song or music that he hears. He's now usually sitting up in his crib when I go in to get him. He's still taking two naps every day and sleeping 12 hours at night. The photo shoot was much harder this month because the little subject kept crawling off the chair as evidenced in the next picture series.


  1. I can't believe how big he is. I'm sure it will seem like no time at all and Judah will be this big.
