On the 5th of this month, our little guy turned 11 months. We’ve been enjoying this month with him….so many firsts – he’s learning how to drink from a sippy cup, self-feeds, say’s “thank-you! (“dat-oooo!” is what it sounds like), signs “more please” and “all done” and just today he climbed his first 2 stairs and clapped for the first time as well as experienced his first Christmas tree this month, cut his 3rd tooth and threw his first ball. And a lot of his boy-ness is starting to show – he loves to wrestle with pillows and tackle his daddy on the couch. So. Much. Fun! Malachi is constantly maneuvered and hoisted around by his big sisters but he is so sweet with them. Often, we will find him on the couch with one of his sisters, sucking his thumb and laying his (big!) head on their shoulder. It doesn’t get more precious than that!
