11 months old

Where does the time go? I can't believe my baby boy is 11 months old today.  Ethan has changed so much in the past month that I can't imagine what new thing he's going to be doing next. He is pulling up on everything now and it'll be soon when he starts walking on his own. He loves to walk in his walker and especially with his daddy. He has started eating table food the best he can with only 3 teeth :) Recently he started eating bananas and the one day he wouldn't pick them up anymore so we let him bite the banana while we held it and that's the only way he'll eat it now. He's so funny how picky he is. He doesn't like for us to feed him baby food because I think he enjoys feeling all grown up by picking up his food. He has also discovered drinking out of a straw. The other day we were out to dinner and the waitress brought us our drinks and I forgot to order him one and he just went crazy. I had never seen him get so upset over something so minor. So we got him his own cup just so he could suck through the straw. While he was drinking, he started blowing through the straw and so this created a new thing for him. When we finally had to take it away from him b/c he was getting water everywhere he definitely through a fit. So I'm beginning to think the boy likes to have his way and if he doesn't get it, he's going to let us know. These are just some of the few things that make us love him so much more. I have to laugh when he goes through these stages because I know it's just his personality developing and that is just who he is. He is so special to us and I can't wait to see what new thing we get to experience next.
