milestone: eleven months

I can't believe Miles is eleven months old!! Even harder to believe: he'll be a year old in just one month. It's gone by in the blink of an eye. I remember the early sleepless nights (and a few recent ones!) when I couldn't wait for the sun to come up because that meant it was a new day -- we were literally taking it hour by hour and day by day. Now the days seem to fly by, and I have to slow down and really enjoy every single precious moment.

Miles continues to amaze us with his new tricks. He's cruising along the furniture with ease and trying to stand up on his own all the time. He loves finger foods and will tell you when he's had enough "baby" food purees by spitting it out at you. He's quick to smile and laugh which brings us constant joy. One of his newer skills is pointing...almost there with the pointer finger and instead he motions in the direction of whatever catches his eye and waves at it. Miles plays peek-a-boo with his towel after bathtime pulling it up over his face with both hands and down again (repeat 10+ times). Another new favorite trick is downward dog -- he's an early yoga lover! He's using mama and dada a lot to "talk" to us.

The next month will bring a big transition at daycare to a new room and teacher, and I'll start the weaning process, which I'm sad/happy about at the same time. Lots of changes coming!

The weekends are getting busy with farmers markets outings, trips to the park and walks in the stroller now that it's finally getting warmer. We're excited for a summer full of new adventures.
