11 Months!

Did he really turn 11 months yesterday? Well, that would explain why he won't sit still for a photo.

While Adam remains a cheerful, happy baby, he has developed a will of his own, and is starting to notice when we thwart it. He doesn't like having his diaper changed. If he's playing with something and you redirect him, he might start crying hard. It's usually not too hard to jolly him out of this mood, but the fact that he's realized that he has opinions, and darn if you shouldn't be agreeing with them, makes him even more of a person, even closer to the grown-up he'll be someday.

He's so close to walking that it's kind of silly, to me, that he isn't yet. But I think a lot of it is about the fact that he's a little cautious, which I can get behind. He's not timid at all--he'll crawl off the edge of the bed or put just about anything in his mouth--but he isn't the kind of kid who'll throw himself at something new, damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead. I think this tendency to stop and think before he dives into something, but then diving in anyway, will serve him well later.

Some mornings he has so much energy I don't know what to do with him. But then in the afternoon we'll go to the park and he'll go nuts on the swing and then sleep like a rock for his nap, and it seems like we've found the perfect balance. Now here's hoping he likes the snow!

Sharon - he's beautiful. Isn't it crazy that nearly a year has gone by? I hope you got my email and my invitation to Leo's blog! Best. Liz J.
