WHEW!! Owen's little monthly photo session lasted all of two minutes this month! Seriously! Our little man is ON THE GO! The moment I sat him down he was off. Luckily I got what I wanted in two shots because after that it was OVER! He is so funny! Over this past month he is "scooting" everywhere and pulling up on everything. He still doesn't want to get up on his hands and knees to crawl but then again why would he - he is so efficient with his "army crawl". He can definitely get after something in no time! He still wants to stand and "step" while standing on his toes but will put his heels down when prompted. I'm trying to keep his walker shoes on him more in hopes that will make it hard for him to keep walking on his toes. He doesn't want anything to do with his walker toy anymore! He has figured out that it gets stuck in the doorways and he can't get into the kitchen with it so he would much rather be on the floor so he can go where he wants to go. Still no improvement in sign language. This child has no interest in signing when he can just squeal for everything he wants. His squeals are now higher pitched and even more intense than ever before. ROAR! He continues to eat like a horse and is eating more and more table foods. He has loved everything he has been given to date and always wants more, more, more! He has sprouted 3 more teeth this month for a total of 4. His other bottom tooth is in (and can be seen in this month's picture) and his two eye teeth are almost completely in. He grew these 3 teeth all at the same time but luckily they didn't seem to have a drastic effect on him. I think those are the main highlights for now. I still can't believe in just 4 weeks my baby boy will be a year old. WOW!
