Adam 11 Months
A big month for change, as Adam took his first steps! He is still pretty unsteady on his two feet, but he is making quick progress as he challenges himself every day with walking greater distances and standing on his own.
He is interacting a lot more with his toys and other people. He is beginning to wave and point. This month was the first time he deliberately pointed at an object we were talking about. He is even attempting names. He starts yelling “Dadadada” when he sees Marco, calling for “Mamamama” when I’m out of sight, and will even address Hops, “Ha-Ha” when we are playing with the dog. When he is interested in something he often says, ”Ooooo!”
Adam has also started putting toys together, such as concentrating to put a lid on a bucket or assembling two pieces of a toy together.
This month was also the first time he has gotten sick. We’ve been extremely lucky so far keeping him fever-free, but it was bound to happen. He was a trouper, and we made it through even though the whole family subsequently caught the stuffy-head baby disease.
