11 Months and First Haircut!

Steven is almost one year old and I can't believe it! He is growing bigger and getting smarter each day! He also continues to steal our hearts each day! He has gotten 4 more teeth on top (for a total of 6) and has learned how to walk. He still prefers to crawl because it is so much faster but is getting more and more confident with walking places. He has added, "dah" for dog, and "wha" for what to his vocabulary, as well as tons of other babble words that I don't know the meaning of. He is starting to climb on everything, even pulling boxes, etc. over so that he can stand on them to get what he wants! :) He has also figured out that throwing things over the gate and down the stairs is a really fun past time.
Our good friend, Brookie Bedwell, gave Steven his first haircut today! He was very interested in what was going on and was a good sport throughout the whole thing! I can't believe we cut his hair but it was getting pretty long on top and in the back. He looks so cute and we can now do some more cute hair do's.

Ten and in the Pen

Steven is ten months old and he is literally in the "pen" at our house a lot! He is so curious about everything and gets into EVERYTHING... so we have created a crawling space/corral in our living room using the furniture and his toy box (aka box from Costco). He's a pro at crawling up the stairs and bolts for any that he sees. He has figured out that you have to go down them backwards but he still thinks he can turn around before he gets all the way down so we have to keep turning him back around so he doesn't face plant it.
He loves to say "oof" when he hears the dogs outside, shake his head "no no", jabber on and on, play with anything that lights up and makes sound, chase things around, play chase, eat finger foods, say "da da" and refuse to say "ma ma" and purse his lips in revolt :). Love this kid! He is such an amazing kid and watching him learn new stuff is one of our greatest joys!
