11 Months! What Child Is This?!

Monday, Harry celebrated his eleventh month. How are we already less than a month from the big first birthday? We treasure every single day with this kid, and really see how much of a true blessing he is. He is so much fun… very spirited, determined, stubborn, and energetic and I love every minute of it.

Harry can say many words and make many animal noises now, yet he prefers to call most things, animals, and people “Doggie.” He most definitely communicates now, and he knows exactly what he wants. He eats so well (three bowls of soup last night!) and then requests dessert, i.e. dates or blueberries. He is really able to let me know exactly what he wants and I love it.

Harry took his first steps this month! He will walk a few paces on his own, but likes the security of the couch or Mama’s hand. But hold his hand and watch him go. He had four more flights this month and did wonderfully. What he decided not to do wonderfully with was nighttime car rides – not a fan. He also ran his first race on Thanksgiving, along with having turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and cranberry relish for the first time.

I really, truly can’t believe how big this kid is. He’s imitating animal noises, he can tell you where the fan is in every room, he knows what I’m saying anytime I mention food, and he’s picking out his favorite books for me to read over and over again. I absolutely adore being his mama. He is the most fun I’ve ever had in my life.

    Oh, Harry, congratulations on 11 months- with blessings from us in Washington!

    Mallory, what a beautiful subject line! How I often feel that with our Susanna. What child is that that makes me smile and laugh? What child is this that is playing in the plastic food container drawers and dragging them through the house? What child is this that is waking up for the third time in the middle of the night? What child is this that brings such sunshine to the world?
