Simon is 11 months old!
Just one more month and you'll be the big "1"! We can't wait, but in the meantime you've had such a wonderful month.
You love "walking" anywhere you can. You can walk along all of our furniture and pull yourself up on everything. You can even turn from one piece of furniture to another and step in between. Your Daddy and I both think you'll be walking by your first birthday.
You are talking up a storm! It is still mostly babbling, but you can say "mama", "dada", "cat", "nonna", "ball", "dog" and "up". It is amazing how quickly you are finding your words.
Daddy and I took our first trip out of town without you. We missed you so much, but we brought the Ipad with so we could skype with you everyday. You had such a great time playing with Nonna, your cousins, Auntie Stephanie and Uncle Mark. Thank you so much to Nonna for watching Simon. You are amazing!
Popo also came to visit this month. It was just a few days before his birthday so we got to celebrate with him which was a lot of fun. We seemed to have so much fun that we forgot to take any pictures, but we'll make sure to get more next time.
You are still loving baby food and not solid food as much. You eat a few kinds of crackers and grapes. But, if it were up to you (which unfortunately it isn't) you would be on an all yogurt diet. You love it! Some times you even complain until you get a second container of it.
This month we did our first fundraising walk. It was the March for Babies for the March of Dimes. Our team was able to raise over one thousand dollars to support research and treatment for premature babies. It was a truly moving experience and we are looking forward to making it an annual event.
Your spark shines through with everyone you meet my little angel. I love you more everyday (if that is even possible!) There are big changes coming for you this month my love. Whether it is eating, walking, or talking, I can't wait to see what you've got in store.
