Learning, Exploring, Growing

We've been putting it off for a few weeks, but we finally got an opportunity to visit a nearby park to take Aaron's 11 month portraits. It certainly was an ideal evening, weather-wise, but it had been a terrible day for napping. Aaron was in a bad mood. Most of the photos we got looked like this...

or this...

...and I went home frustrated and certain that I didn't have what I wanted. But my little supermodel always pulls through. Here's the final product...

It's been quite a month for Aaron. A few of the highlights:
  • Learning to walk - he's really taking off, now!
  • We haven't pureed his food in some time. He's just more interested in feeding himself, which is fine with me. :-) As I type, he's next to me in the highchair feeding himself carrots. Yum!
  • He's beginning to use sign language consistently (he's now telling me he wants more carrots!). Words he can sign include all done, dog, and more. There are a handful more that he understands, and we're working on expanding his vocabulary.

All I can say to this is....How precious!

Way to go Aaron...walking, signing and eating on your own.

Can't wait to see you for your 1st birthday.

Hugs and Kisses!
