11 months old!

I think it's time to retire the nickname "Baby W."  As of yesterday, he is 11 months old, and no longer a "baby." At his allergist appointment a couple days ago, he stood on the scale and weighed 23 pounds! Any suggestions for his blog nickname??  I was thinking about "Mister W."  His Papa calls him "Little Man," which is cute too.  Other suggestions?

What he's loving at 11 months:
To crawl fast and all over the place! 
The hall nightlight.  If we forget to take it out during the day, he crawls straight for it and pulls it out of the wall!
To tilt his head side to side with anyone who is watching him.
To click his tongue.
To clap his hands (on command!)
To turn on and off the light switches.
He says "Bye Bye" and waves his hand.  He sometimes waits until the person is out the door, but today when we were at my in-laws, I took my keys out of my purse and he immediately said "Bye Bye" and started waving!
The air condition vents and the blinds. 
To help me type on my computer.
To watch us kick our feet up in the air when we're laying down.
He says "Book" without the "k" sound on the end.  He loves reading books!
To try and help me close the garage door when we are coming inside.
To eat anything and everything.  He likes all of his baby food and his puffs. 
To open the cabinets in the kitchen.
He stood on his own for a little while.  If he figures out he's doing it on his own, he immediately plops down.
He also has 3 teeth now on the bottom, and it looks like his two front teeth aren't far from coming in!
Caught him in the middle of a yawn :)

I know this next month will have lots in store for us!  Maybe some more talking...maybe some walking! AH!

Happy Weekend! :)

I cannot believe that he is already 11 months old! I loved reading about all the things that he is loving at 11 months. Too cute about your in-laws and him saying bye-bye and waving right away! A little girl I use to baby sit did the same thing with standing on her own and when she realized it was by herself so would plop down. He is such a handsome fella!

I like "little man." That's what he is, a "little man." :)

He'll be walking/running before you know it. Enjoy his lack of mobility. It gets really crazy once they can walk.

Love the clapping, light switches, and the cute little teeth. Ah, I love it all.

He looks like such a happy baby. Obviously you are a fabulous mom!

Have a great weekend.
