Eleven months old

Eleven months old. hmmm...not sure how I feel about this. Eleven months. The last month before he's one YEAR. A whole number. I better keep doing these monthly posts, though. It's the only thing that keeps me on task and guarantees a post each month.

At eleven months, Zane:

*Will walk as long as he has one hand on the wall, my hand, the couch, a toy, etc. But it's just for security, not support. He could take off and go if he was brave enough. He can stand forever by himself and has taken some unassisted steps.

*Crawls normally on carpet. On hard floors he crawls with his right foot and slides his left leg and bottom! Saving those knees, I guess?

*Pats his head when asked, "Where's your head?" and his belly when asked, "Where's your belly?"

*Likes to turn off/on light switches. When someone says, "Thank you" he mimics with the same connotation. Does the same thing with "Happy Thanksgiving!"

*His favorite hobby is opening and closing cabinet doors, bedroom doors, and drawers.

*Does NOT understand "No no". He goes right back to the places he just got in trouble for! What the heck? I have no idea how to stop this.

*Added "uh-oh" to his vocab.

See how he's grabbing that shoelace? He wants to "floss" with it. Guaranteed. He "flosses" his teeth with any string, yarn, cord, etc that he can get his hands on. Just a word of advice to you parents out there.....don't give your 11 month old dental floss to play with. Just sayin......maybe we learned the hard way, maybe not. I'll never tell....

This is Zane with his third? cousin, Hunter. My favorite Hunter quote of the day: His grandma (my aunt) asked him how he pees. I'm expecting him to say "in the potty" or "like a big boy". Nope. Hunter's answer: "Like a race horse!" HA!
Here is Zane playing with his new toy that Aunt Claudia brought to my mom's house. LOVED it! He played with it for hours! Thank you Claudia and Hunter for your hand-me-down toys!Here's a video of Zane playing peek-a-boo. Hunter walks in the house at the end of the video. Around 20 seconds. Please note how Z totally zones in on him and looks completely enthralled!

Now, let the birthday planning begin!

What a precious, big boy Zane is becoming! Enjoy this last month, Mom. William will be 1 on Friday, and I am not handling this well-very emotional! Where has the time gone? We're having a low-key family party in Fayetteville this weekend. Can't wait to hear about Zane's big party plans! Miss you!
