For the first time ever, I am a day late posting Bennett's monthly update. I think I have a valid excuse though. We just arrived in our new city, San Diego yesterday afternoon and have been on the road since last Friday. The trip went quite well, and Benny slept and chattered happily in his carseat for most of the trip.
And now he is 11 months old; 1 month shy of his first BIRTHDAY! I don't even have time to absorb the shock of his advanced age because we are busy trying to get settled into our new area. But the fact is, I have a little boy now. He is hardly a baby at all. Though not walking, he stands for a couple seconds at a time, and easily moves around the room holding on to walls, coffee tables, and couches. He babbles constantly- his favorite thing to say is "da da da da" and has recently been peppering in "ma ma ma." Thank goodness! I've been waiting to hear my name.
I miss him when he sleeps, though he drives me crazy at times when he's awake.. He is definitely an active, happy, little boy. We adore every minute with him, and I am just soaking up every last drop of this month before he turns one!
I don't have the obligatory 11 month neck tie photo since we were on the road.. but here are a few current shots of my sweet baby boy.
