11 Months

I'm not really sure when Steven turned 11 months, but it happened sometime in the last week :) He's doing great, and is such a happy guy, especially when he's around people besides us. I can tell he's going to be quite the social butterfly. Something that I'm sure has contributed to him having some not so happy moments recently is the fact that he has 4 teeth coming in right now. Poor guy! He loves to play with our cell phones, and seems to know a lot about them already! As I was importing some pictures from my phone the other day I discovered this one...
I'm not even sure how to take these on-screen shots, but apparently Steven does! He's getting closer to being able to stand up on his own, but doesn't seem in a huge hurry to conquer that milestone.
He also has starting doing some other cute things. When he gets really excited (or if I do it first) he scrunches up his nose and breathes really fast through it. It kind of reminds me of something that my family used to do (I can't remember why... I guess it was an inside joke I was somehow never a part of)
Also, just today when we were taking his pictures, we were trying to figure out the best way to pose him and discovered the rocking chair worked well. We also discovered he likes rocking in it. Now, there have been a few injuries in my family that I know of involving rocking chairs, so I don't plan on letting him do this often, but it was still cute.

Good call on unsupervised rocking chair usage. I know I just saw Steven, but I simply can't get over his adorableness. (apparently that is actually a word) The nose-wrinkling-breathing-snuffling thing came from Hillary. When she was just about Steven's age, she started doing it. It was so funny that we all mimicked her, and, as you said, it's sort of become a family tradition. (And you thought we had no family traditions...)

Loved that first series of "11 month" shots with the sign, especially that last one where he's holding it in front of his face. :} And how long are his eyelashes? A couple of feet? It's always the guys that get them!! So cute!

Great videos. Such a CUTE boy! I can't get over it. Love that he is waving. One of my favorite things.
