EleVen MoNtHs oLd...

My baby is officially Almost ONE! He turned 11 months today....and I hate it by the way. I have to admit...he is a darn fun and energetic little 11 month old. Jarom caught some "interesting" footage once again, of my little munchkin being a complete wierdo =) He is so goofy. He has recently adopted the habit of mimicking EVERYTHING that we do. I knew this was normal of toddlers....but he is still so little! If jarom moves his arms a certain way then jaxson will do it. He picks up the remote and points it at the TV and pushes buttons....if Jarom wears a hat to school.....WELL, that explains the following video clip. Jaxson will spend the rest of the day putting things on his head or trying to take Jarom's hat and put it on. Jaxson seems to want to do everything that Jarom does. I have to thank chelsea for the little "baby paper" or crinkle paper that jaxson was playing with in the video. He has never really understood the concept of it...but tonight it worked perfectly to accomplish whatever it was my little goofball was trying to do! Enjoy~

I am also sooooo excited because my mom is flying me and Jaxson home to celebrate his FIRST BIRTHDAY with my family:) I am honestly so excited. I am throwing him a big b-day party with friends here in Omaha on March 1st....then it's off to Utah on March 5th....back on March 10th and then my sister Kayla is coming to spend her Spring Break with us on March 12th! It will make for a fun-filled and REALLY busy few weeks in March....but I always love something to look forward too. After that we will only be a matter of WEEKS away from graduation, moving and starting a whole new life...PHEW! I hope to slow down a bit over the next 2-3 months and enjoy time with friends and take advantage of everything here in Omaha.....it's sad to think it may be years before I see any of it again OR before I see any of these people again!

Anyhow.....

Things My Baby Boy is Doing at 11 Months:

1-Eating Lots of real people food. Yay for me and confronting my fear head-on. Ok, not LOTS of food, but more than I ever thought at this age.

2-Mimicks our EVERY action!

3-Laughs ALL THE TIME. For no apparent reason. You will constantly see him giggling.

4- Almost walking. Can crawl faster than I ever thought possible.

5-Has 6 teeth. He is the best teether....he has never really whined, had a fever, or been in pain. He'll get a little runny nose and wake up with a new One! It's cake.

6-Has attitude. He has unfortunatly learned to throw a tantrum and resist things he doesn't want to do. It's still amazing to me that he is old enough to know the difference. Oh but he does.

7-LOVES to throw any kind of balls. Still (I know I mentioned this 100 times).

8- Can almost wave bye-bye and is working on clapping! He usually just stares at us like we're ridiculous. It seems to be the only thing he WON'T mimick. Of course, he is stubborn like both of his parents.

9-Loves ice-cream. You thought the video of the rootbeer float was bad...you should see him when I eat an Oreo McFlurry. I could be rich if I submitted it!

10-Still loves to cuddle with me, but ONLY me. (Which I love...but it won't last long I can tell!)

11-Still the love of our lives!

his first birthday is getting closer and closer! i'm excited that jarom gets to graduate soon, but im hate the fact that you moving comes along with it.:( we didn't have enough time to be friends! Jaxson and Jonathan would've been best buddies!

Your little boy is so dang funny! Me and the kids are also flying home on March 5th. Do you only do the direct Delta flight too? I swear I would never go home if I had to have a lay-over with 2 kids. I'm a Rascal Flatts fanatic so when I found out they were coming to Utah on March 7th I hurried and booked a flight home. We're also taking the kids to Disney Princess on Ice that week-YAY! Did you find the red fondant?

I know this is a random question..but can you give me a phone number or cell number for Jashon? My mom wants to ask him to mc for her and can't get a number for him. Thanks!!

How funny! I can't believe something like that can entertain Jaxson for hours...He is too cute!

Little Jaxson is seriously a nut!! That video, like the others, made me laugh out loud! He really, really wanted that crinkle paper on his head and seemed content when it would stay for a few seconds. What a funny kid!! Yes- -I said "kid". I know you don't want to hear that but I think it's true!:)

Ginger said...

I'm pretty sure you have the funniest baby on the face of the planet! Please submit more videos for my viewing pleasure. He is sooo cute. I don't know how Jarom can record without laughing hysterically. Such a cutie.

Kassie said...

That's too funny! I need to get me some of that fake paper.

Allyson said...

Wow! Time has flown! I still remember that post when he was wrapped up in that little blanket. (It made me baby hungry for a time) What a cutie!

Hey Kristin!

Just so you know...watching movies of Jax is an almost daily routine in our home. Bobby LOVES to watch and laugh with him. :)

Yes, we live in Syracuse and LOVE it! We live in a new subdivision just south of the new Syracuse High School. There are TONS of Ivory homes going up there and lots to be bought. :) We love our ward and our neighborhood. This is one reason that I am secretly glad we have been in Utah and HOPE to stay in Utah for the remainder of law school...I get to stay in MY HOUSE! Good luck house hunting...

Simkins said...

He is so dang cute. He was so good at dinner the other night. We are going to be out of town on the 1st for spring break, dang it. Other wise we would have loved to come to his 1st b-day. We will have to get together again so I can give him a present because I never get to shop for boys and I love to. Talk to you later.

Chelsea said...

oh gee...not sure that's what the inventors of Baby Paper intended it to be used for, but looks like it entertained him for a minute at least:) I can't believe he is 11 months, that is insane! I'm so glad your mom is coming for his party!!! thats exciting:)
