11 months

Dearest Perron,

How could it be?  How could it be that 11 months ago you came into our lives in a whirlwind?  We have gone through four seasons together.  What an unbelievable journey it has been.  You have had a VERY busy month.  After two and a half months of working, you have finally begun to crawl.  You started on your ten and a half month birthday.  At first you looked like a little bunny hopping.  You would move your arms forward and then hop your little legs forward at the same time.  It was so cute.  Well, that only lasted two days and on evening I put you down to show daddy your bunny hop and you just took off in a full out crawl.  Now most of our days are spent telling you "no Perron" or be careful or that is not a toy or get out of that.  You are very brave and already are pulling up to standing.  That didn't take you long!  You even will cruise back and forth along your crib.  Since you learned to pull up there is not a morning or a nap time that I do not come in and find you standing up and smiling waiting for me to get you out of bed.  The only time it causes us problems is at bedtime.  You can stand up, but you can't get back down.  You get tired and start crying, but you can't get back to laying down.  I think i had to go in to your room six time tonight.

You are almost completely on table food and you are loving life.  You love turkey, BBQ chicken from Miss Myra's, edamame, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, cheerios, avocados.  Basically anything that we have given you, you have loved.  We are so proud of how well you eat and you look so precious as you are shoveling food in your little mouth.  You are now weighing in at 17lbs 5 ozs.  Such a big boy.  You officially weigh more than your mommy did at one year.  You still can wear anything from 3-6 month clothes all the way to 12 month clothes.  It really just depends.  The majority of your 12 month clothes are too big, but sometimes I just can't resist.

This will be your last month in daycare.  We have hired a fabulous nanny for you.  We know you are going to love Ms Meaghan and are going to be so happy staying with her.   We know you will be so much healthier.  You have started taking Kindermusik and are doing well.  It falls right at naptime, so you are sometimes a little grouchy, but you are still doing great!

You are loving your toys and you have a new found joy of knocking things over.  You love for us to build towers with your stacking cups or blocks for you to knock over.  You get the biggest smile on your face and clap the blocks together.  Right now though, your favorite "toys" are the things that you should not be getting in to....wall grates, shoes, the fireplace, the protective covers that make sure you can't hurt yourself on the fireplace, your baby gate.  Speaking of your baby gate.  You like to crawl over to the step and pull up on the baby gate.  You will pull yourself up and stand at the gate like you are in baby jail.  Very cute!

We love you more than to the moon and back.


Mommy and Daddy
