11 Months Old

Preston is crawling around like a champ now, and starting to pull himself up to a standing position while holding onto the couch, a chair, whatever he can get his hands on, really.

He is chattering away, saying "dada", "mama", "gaga", "baba" and "nana". He likes to give air kisses and wave at people. He also likes to crawl halfway across the room, turn around and wave at Mommy, and then continue on his way.

He loves music and bouncing to the rhythm of songs, tv commercials, even the jackhammering we hear outside our windows. He can find rhythm in lots of unexpected sounds, which is really cool. Books are a favorite now. He loves sitting on the floor and flipping through his big board books, especially the one with all the photos of the dogs.

Summer's here!

After months of cold and dreary weather, I am celebrating the return of summer! There is so much to do in the city- parks, pools, outdoor concerts, long walks....I can't wait to share it all with Preston.

His friend Julian lives in an apartment complex with a really nice pool, so we tried it out on Monday and Preston loved being in the water! We are going to take "swimming" lessons there once a week, hopefully he'll be a water baby like I was.

Check out the cool bathing suit we bought for in when we were in London. Covers up that fair, English skin nicely!
