    11 months already?

    Man, has this been one very eventful month? And it’s gone by q.u.i.c.k! Let’s see, in the past few weeks G’s:
    1. gotten more teeth
    2. started crawling
    3. said his first word

    Our little man is now getting into everything and childproofing is turning out to be a much tougher (and longer) job than we imagined. Meanwhile, G is a determined little dude who has a much better memory than I give him credit for. I try to redirect his attention beyond just saying “No!”, but the kid knows what he wants and is already figuring how to get around my legs. I think my mother is finally getting her wish: for me to have a little terror just like the one I was to her. The sad part is that I see myself in G’s mischievous smile and know that we’re in for a world of trouble.

    G is now also an expert at saying “Uh-oh!” Yeah, there are no consonants in that word, but he says it well and he uses it in context. I could have sworn his first word would be “dada”, but apparently he’s already showing us that he’ll be bringing words from school. I can’t wait to hear some of the more colorful language he’ll bring home (although knowing my potty mouth, he’d be the one teaching others bad words). And no, it’s not lost on me that my little trouble maker has selected this for his first word.

    As a whole he looks so much different to me now than he did a month ago. Maybe, as S likes to say, he’s growing into his head. Either way, he’s looking more and more like a little boy than a baby.

    Meanwhile preparation for the big 01 party are underway. The theme? Little monsters… you know… in honor of my little monster.

      Aw, what a cutie!! Love the pics and the party theme idea.. I told Jeff he should design a monster so I can do a monster birthday invite design. Are you doing a monster cake?

      He is so cute!

      Live is a circle, Ava. It is repeating itself.

      I do not think he speaks Bulgarian yet, but on the clip where he is laughing, he made sound like “bab” that can be “Baba” or “grandmother”. Just listen carefully to the end.
