He even took his first steps last week, just a few days before 11 months. It was the cutest thing we have ever seen. Tim and I were so excited, and Asher was so proud himself. I'm so glad Tim and I were both home to witness it. He is still working on it and I'm sure in no time he'll be walking all over, more like running probably. He is ALWAYS on the move.
He also figured out this month that he can open the cupboards and drawers and is pretty much obsessed with the kitchen. We have had a giant diaper box sitting in front of the cupboard under the sink for over a week now because I can't find the right baby proof locks for our cupboards. Everything else has been rearranged so he can get into it and he loves it. Earlier today Tim and I were sitting in the living room while Asher crawled into the kitchen. A minute later we heard a drawer open and Asher laughing to himself over and over. We walked in to see him just playing with the box of ziploc bags, he thought it was hilarious. We love that he can entertain himself like that these days. He loves to explore and is very curious.
He is also such a good eater now. It has taken a while and he was such a picky eater before. He will eat just about anything we give him. Right now he is especially loving watermelon, spaghetti, yogurt and graham crackers. I limit the graham crackers but he would eat them all day if he could!
Asher is super talkative right now. He is always "chatting" and sounds like he is trying to say real words all the time, and sometimes he is. He copies us a lot, it's so cute. One of my favorite things is listening to him through the monitor when he wakes up, he'll stand in his crib and jump up and down while yelling for us "Mamamama, Dadadada". As soon as we walk in he gets a big smile on his face and jumps even more. I love that he is so happy to see us.
I'm so excited for his birthday! I started planning his party last week when I realized it was only a month away, I chose a theme, made the invitations, and made most of the decorations all in one day while he was napping. Now I'm getting antsy waiting for it. I can't wait to let him open his present and try some cake. I'm sure he'll love it! I think he'll especially love the cake part, he already has a sweet tooth. We love seeing him grow and learn new things all the time. It's definitely more work everyday to chase him around, and sometimes I wish he could stay a little baby forever, but I certainly wouldn't have it any other way! We love our Asher boy!
Our cute boy! Asher loves to be outside.
Eating spaghetti and LOVING it!
