Braxton is 11 Months old!

Wow... I can't believe how FAST Braxton is growing up!! He'll turn 1 in less than a month!

Braxton is now:

* really into independence... self feeding, drinking, playing with toys, turning pages of books etc.

* is learning to say "words" he now can communicate "bbbb" for bite (anything food related or hungry) and "dooo" for drink. He also says "ba ba" for bottle. He religiously calls me dada... and seems content with this. I, however, am not a fan.

* he crawls SO fast and has been cruising for a while now. He is finally starting to take about 6 steps by himself... and could take more if he didn't get chicken. I think he'll be walking by his birthday. And he can't wait... Quincy's always teasing him by taking toys and running away.

* has quite the personality! He likes to snuggle, but ONLY with me. He loves rough housing with his brother and dad. He hates it when someone takes a toy away from him and resorts to biting. We're trying to break this habit by taking him away from the situation and saying 'no biting'.

* LOVES bath time! In fact you can find him practically zooming down the hallway when he hears the water running in the tub.

* he's working on his molars, which has been fun... and so there's lots of drooling around our house.

* he is in LOVE with Quincy. Anything Quincy says or does is funny. (With the exception of taking toys he's playing with.)

Braxton is such a sweet boy and extremely mild tempered, it's so hard to believe my baby will be 1 so soon... I will get his stats on here after his next appt. :)

How fun! Well at least he'll cuddle with you lots even though he doesn't call you mama.

I can't wait to see him steal Q's toys and then be able to RUN! Ha ha. They sure do love each other.

Braxton is a cutie! I can't believe he's almost one.
