Co-pilot's 11 months!
We're having work done at our house so this month's photos had to be taken at Mummu's with her floral wallpaper in the background! The eleventh month has been all about being on the move. Co-pilot finally started crawling on his hands and knees and started cruising at about the same time (along anything and everything including the walls). He has been practicing his walking nonstop and has a few bumps and bruises to show for the times he's a little too courageous! I decided not to photoshop out his bruises so that I could remember how hard he has been working. We don't have stairs at home, but at Mummu's he climbs up them in a flash! His long arms and legs allow him to take each step easily.
He's also started communicating a little more clearly. He has started using the sign for "all done" and even says "ah-dah". We haven't really taught him any signs, but I tried "all done/finished" after his dinner and he started imitating me. It's pretty cute! I'm not sure if he really has a first word yet though since he doesn't always initiate words, but imitates some when I say them. I'm not thinking it will be "mama" or "mommy" though since he doesn't use his lips sounds (p, b, m) too much. :( Can you guess what my profession is based on that analysis?! I really try not to analyze my kids speech too much, but sometimes I can't help it. I wonder whether he will have a Finnish first word like Little Pilot did?
Oh, and Co-pilot loves music! He bobs his little head and dances whenever he hears a tune! He loves to get others to dance along with him as well. It is beyond adorable. :)
That's Co-pilot at 11 months!
