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!
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!
