Gage at 11 Months Old

Gage 11 Months

I simply cannot believe that Gage is 11 months old today. In exactly one month, we will be celebrating his first birthday. I guess I should get started on some party plans, since I’ve already invited people – just haven’t done much past that. 🙂

Gage is such a fun baby. I’m amazed at how different each of my kids really are. Gage is Mr. Independent. He holds his own bottles, likes to feed himself, {because I just can’t feed him fast enough!}, and would rather crawl where he wants to go than to be held.

He hasn’t eaten baby food in months. He’s strictly on table food now, and he eats everything we eat. You’d never know he only had 8 teeth, because he’ll eat anything you put in his mouth.

He doesn’t talk much yet. Mama, Dada, bye-bye, and ba-ba are about the extent of his vocabulary. But, boy, has he finally caught up with the gross motor skills. He trucks around the house all day long, and he loves trying to walk along anything he can hold onto. {Just don’t try to hold his hands and make him walk. Not Mr. Independent.}

My baby boy is certainly growing up. I wish I could just bottle time – or at least slow it down a little.
