Matthew Jay you are ELEVEN months old!
What have you been up to these days???
It has been a busy month for you full of lots of memories, excitement, and milestones!
Just after you turned 10 months, you started to stand on your own for extended periods of time. About a week later you started to take one step at a time, and then fall down. Next thing we know, a week or so later you were taking a couple of steps at a time. And now, you are officially WALKING! You are SO proud of yourself, and think that walking is just about the coolest thing! You haven't learned how to stand up on your own without holding onto something though. So if you fall, you just crawl the rest of the way to wherever you are going, or you crawl over to something or someone you can pull up on to regain your balance, and then you are off again! We love the idea of you being an early walker. Sure, it makes life a lot busier for us, but with another baby on the way, I really want you to be good at walking by the time baby girl gets here, so I'm not having to tote around 2 of you all the time!
You celebrated your very first Christmas. You LOVE playing with all of your new toys!
Words you are saying: Dada (ALL.THE.TIME!), Mama, baba (bottle), Nana (banana).
You can tell us what sound a dog, cow and monkey make.
(This is you making a monkey sound)
You love to look at pictures and photo albums.
You can sign "All Done" when you are finished eating, to let us know you are full!
Matthew, you are still the best sleeper! Your schedule hasn't changed, and you nap from 9-11am, and
