11 Months?!

Really? Jeremy is 11 months old?! I am having such a hard time believing it. Time has truly flown by this past year. I still clearly remember the (horrible) first six weeks! Seriously, what a joy our son is to us! It's so interesting how different our two kids are. Grace was able to "sign" and communicate with us from an early age. We've tried to do the same things with Jeremy and he still won't communicate with us using sign language. When he wants something, he screams. He is also quite impatient, particularly if we don't get his food ready in time (Anyone have suggestions on how to change this?!)
He's as happy as can be... when he's got food in front of him!

We really do call him "Bear" nowadays because he is so rough with everything. An example? Well, he likes to head-butt our cats! I am working on getting this on film so that people will believe us. He can certainly hold his own when he and Jason rough-house on the floor. Jason loves to play "catch" with him. He's got quite an arm. As well, he is an incredibly fast crawler, and is able to stand unsupported for a good amount of time. I am amazed at all that he's learned how to do. For example, at his daycare, he has figured out how to open their gate; at home, he's learned how to turn on the dishwasher and open our pocket doors... Keeping up with him can be exhausting! I really do enjoy watching him and seeing his personality develop. Before we know it, we'll be celebrating his first birthday!
