This year is flying by. I can’t believe we’re less than two weeks away from his first birthday. He’s definitely no longer a baby and is far more of a toddler. He’s walking all over the place, still slightly unstable and so as a result his poor head is taking a bit of a beating. It’s killing us! I guess that’s part of parenting…trying to prevent the falls from happening but not being able to protect them every time. I’m happy to say that Jackson’s Eleventh Month Portraits were actually taken on his 11th month birthday…obviously I just didn’t get to blog them. But honestly as I’m thinking toward his first birthday portraits, I don’t think I’ll have those blogged on his birthday either. They’ll come a few days later, instead of his first birthday I’m going to share some of my favorites from the year. It’s going to be a lost post, just warning you now.
Anyways, eleven months has been a fun month! Like I said he’s walking like a crazy man, falling, but immediately getting back up. He’s saying all sorts of words – mama, dada, ni-ni (bedtime), nana (hungry- we think he associated hungry with bananas and here we are), papa (for both grandfathers), ball, Pat (for his stuffed dog Patrick) and the big one – Cat Chup. Yes, the kid says Ketchup cause he apparently loves Ketchup so much! We’re just as shocked as the rest of you.
