11-Months Old

Mick turned 11 months yesterday. He is in the final days of his first year. I can't believe it. As his days of being a baby wind down, he is on a mission to prove he is fully ready for the toddler stage.
  • Walking - Check - Mastered that this month, though he really hates wearing shoes and prefers to be barefoot (which is no problem with the record heat this year).
  • Climbing - Check - The stairs are his personal favorite - anything with an riser, step, or incline is fine. As the mom, I'm trying to have him avoid this one.
  • Trouble - Check - Mick gets to everything and does it fast. His preference is for all things dirty, disgusting or dangerous. He tends to ignore all the soft, safe toys which I (of course) prefer.
  • Temper - Check - Just try to take anything away from him and you can see this first hand. His temper is proof of those Irish & Italian roots.
All systems for toddlerhood are a Go. All Mick needs to make it official is his first birthday. If this month goes as fast as the past 11 - that will be in the blink of an eye.

That is life in the stroller lane.
