Gus is 11 months old

It is so shocking our baby is a month away from 1 year old!! How did so much time go by lickety split? It feels like he's just arrived!
He is growing and changing so fast lately. I have on the calendar April 10th Gus Sat. Only a month and half ago he figured out how to get into a sitting position on his own. Now he's crawling at turbo speed, pulling himself up to a stand, cruising the furniture, taking steps while we hold his hands, practicing with a sippy cup, WAVING BYE BYE (as of tonight), loving the bath tub and even though he is still TOOTHLESS loving to eat!
He especially enjoys jelly toast.
He's so cute, crossing his little skinny legs.
and a little looney.

This nose scrunching smile cracks me up. When he thinks something is hilarious, I mean really a knee slapper he scrunches his nose and does the ET neck while he chortles and shrieks. It is pretty funny stuff. He is one sweet boy. I'm sure it's the age, but it is so delightful to have a child who eats readily and happily without bribery! Gus loves to play with Reese and with Reese's toys. Reese does not really like the play with Reese's toys game. He goes to bed so agreeably and has absolutely no desire to sleep in our bed. I can not express how delightful this is. Reese, on the other hand, still never wants to go to bed, though we have had 2 nights in a row with him waking up still in his own bed. However, that bed is his mattress on the floor beside our bed.
Gus really is pretty easy going and so sweet. He laughs and giggles at us all the time.

Ok, well, unlike those other two wacky commenters, I'm going to leave you a relevant comment...hah!

Happy 11 Months, Gus!!!! I can totally relate to the "where has the time gone" feeling!

I'd been wondering how the sleeping thing was going with Reese... any better? We're going to attempt to get G to sleep in her CRIB rather than in her seat in the crib. ;)

Gus sounds like a perfect baby, isn't it such a blessing to have such a happy, easy baby?!

He is precious, and I love the nose scrunch. My Jack used to do that when he was around a year old.

OK, you know I can't get my sweet little bundle to eat a thing! All and I mean ALL he wants is his bottle. I figure he'll get it eventually:-).

I hope you continue to have fun and pure joy with Gus, and Reese continues to sleep in his "bed", even if it is the mattress in your room on the floor, which is cracking me up by the way:-).
