11 months

I feel like I am constantly saying 'I can't believe my baby is so big!' but it's true. Jonah is 11 months old! He goes to the pediatrician next month, so I don't really know how big he is. He is walking!!!! He started taking steps at about 10.5 months, but now he is really toddling around. I guess he will get in his head that he wants something in the other room and will just walk in there. It's so funny how he just lives here now. :)He knows where his toys are and how to get around, and he will just walk into the other room and play!

Jonah loves to swim. I swear, if I would let him swim all day he would totally do it. I knew he was going to be my little fish. He will even put his face in the water on his own. The other day, he fell in the kiddie pool and I grabbed him really quick but he went under for a second, and he didn't even care!

Jonah is eating table foods now. I just chop up most of his food and he is doing good with it. He gave me some trouble for a while but we pushed through, and now he will eat zucchini, sweet potatoes, avacado, hummus, and pretty much anything I give him! This is how we know he's done: he likes to put his food on his head. Don't ask me.

And then he likes to feed Darcy his leftover vegetables

He will drink water and juice from a sippie cup, but he refuses to take his formula from a cup now. I think it probably tastes bad, but I hope he likes when we transition to milk. I am ready to get off the bottle and off the expensive formula!

Jonah is starting to associate sounds a little bit. He will say "la-la" when he points to a light, and he will say "da-da" sometimes when we tell him. He is starting to get it, and I think when he starts saying words he will take off. He says 'more' in sign language sometimes, and he likes when I make him say 'all done'.

He loves going to the aquarium and the zoo, and he still loves going to daycare. Whenever we go pick him up, he is always playing so happily. We feel so lucky to have such a great place to take him and such great people to care for him and keep him safe.

I am planning Jonah's 1st birthday party. It is going to be a pool party, since he loves to swim so much. We are very excited!

And in closing, here is a picture of my babies going on a walk:)
