Twelve Months




I'm writing this on the last day of Hunter's twelfth month. This will probably be the last of the monthly-update-type posts, but not the last you'll read of my boy. I have a couple months of catching up to do since the update is usually all the happenings from the previous month (i.e. the 11 month post was everything during his 10th month up to the 11 month mark) but I lagged around the holidays.

During Hunter's 11th month he started saying ball and dog. Not mama or dada. Nope. At first I didn't believe he was saying those words, especially since I can't ever recall saying them much to him myself, but a couple of family friends swore they heard him say them. So I listened. And sure enough he pointed to the ball and said ball and pointed to the dog and said dog. Then all of a sudden he stopped.

On the day of his birthday party we all noticed him do a new thing for the camera. He's always been aware of me photographing him, but now when you tell him to smile or say cheese, he scrunches up his nose and gives a big toothy grin! Love it.

Still no walking, but he's been standing a lot and he seems really proud of it. His new favorite fruit is kiwi and he continues to devour meat: fish, chicken, beef, pork, whatever, he loves it. During his 12th month he also started making "sound effects" while playing. He makes noises for his toy cars, "mroom, mroom" and animals. Too cute! Also, he loves his papa! In the evenings on our way home in the car, I will ask him, "What are you going to tell papa when we get home?" and he answers back in his little gibberish talk. He goes on an on. Then, when he actually sees his dad, he reaches for him and gets all giddy. Melts my heart.

P.S. Happy New Year, friends!!!
