Eleven Months

Elijah one month from today you will no longer be considered a baby but you will officially be a toddler. I am not sure Momma is ready for this transition. You are growing so big and strong and we see your personality coming out more and more each day. Daddy and Mommy love watching you learn new things, try different foods, figure out how to make a mess especially in the kitchen, and become more affectionate in your touches. This month was filled with many more firsts but the biggest news is that you are going to be a big brother!!! Mommy is pregnant and due sometime in the fall. We are so excited to see how you will watch over and love your little brother or sister one day soon.

Reasons why I adore my son and milestones I want to remember:
~Daddy had to install cabinet locks in the kitchen and bathroom to keep you safe since you are crawling everywhere
~Second flight to MD to visit Papa, Nana, Aunt Amy, G.G. and some of Mommy's friends you did great!
~1st time crawling up the stairs and so the instruction/ discipline begins:)
~Learning to communicate by pointing your finger
~Tooth #9 broke through and I did not even know because you were so brave

Stats from your doctor's appnt:
No doctor's appointment for you until you turn one!

Mommy and Daddy were so excited when they found out that you were going to be a big brother. We know that you will love your little sibling so well and enjoy playing with him/her in the days to come. You are growing up so fast and we cannot believe that you will be one next month! Watching you explore the world around you brings us much joy and we are anxious to keep teaching you new things. This month really started consistent discipline with teaching you not to climb past the landing. We have already seen your strong-willed personality and determination to do your own thing, but we are confident that God will give us the grace to parent you well and guide you through this life. Each day keeps getting better with you in it and we are thankful for your sweet smiles, tender hugs, and many other ways you communicate love to us.
