11 wonderful months

The Butterbean is now 11 months old! I really can't believe how fast time has gone! In one more month, we will be celebrating his 1st birthday! He has changed so much this month! So let me share with you what he is now doing:
-He is officially sleeping through the night! Actually, he has been doing this consistantly for about three weeks now, I was just a little nervous to share. I didn't want to jinx it afterall. But those of you who know me and the Butterbean well, know that he has never been a great night time sleeper. He's always been very wakeful. But not anymore! Yay!
-He is crawling. Though, it's not the typical crawling on all fours. It's more like a flop around like a fish crawling. And the baby can move! We caught him on video today going for the remote control. I would love to share it with you, however I've lost the cord that connects my camera to the computer. When I find it, I will share.
-He continues to sing E-I-E-I-O. Although, it may not really be singing, more like screaming and yelling it as loud as he can at the most inappropriate times, including the other day at the grocery store. The baby is an attention grabber and he doesn't care where the attention is coming from.
-He thoroughly enjoys bathtime. Though, this is not a new thing. He has discovered that the foam letters and numbers stick to himself and attempts to stick them to himself. Well, the Mr. and I actually stuck the letters on him and thought it was funny. So I guess he thinks that they belong on him now. He loves to splash and scream in the tub.
-He tries to copy what we say. Even though, we don't understand what he says, I can pick out the vowel sounds and such of what we had just said to him. He's a blabber and can gab all day. -The walker has become his new obsession. He loves that thing. Since he has discovered how to jump the little bump of wood seperating our hardwood floors from the tile in the kitchen, he has been "walking" all over the place.
-He loves playing in the church nursery! The nursery staff complement me everytime I go to pick him up. They are always stating how wonderful he was and was so happy. I tell you, the boy loves to be around other babies!
-He is such a ham! He is so silly! Always making faces and has become such a happy little guy!
We are so blessed to be the parents of this awesome, beautiful baby! I don't know if life could get anybetter! He is such a wonderful baby and the sunshine in my day! It has been my greatest joy watching this little one grow up right before me.
I love you Butterbean! Happy 11 months!
