Grayson at 11 Months Old!!

I cannot believe my baby will be ONE in a month! Grayson is so much fun & makes us smile every day! It's amazing to watch him learn & do new things...he will look up at us & smile big {like he is proud of himself}. He is such a sweet baby & loves to give us hugs and kisses! Grayson has mastered the skill of crawling! He can also stand alone & has taken a few steps behind the walking toy. He is a very determined little boy! He is attempting to get into anything & everything. Our house is full of sounds of babbling & baby talk. He will just "talk" like he is really telling us something and we just say "Really?" or "You dont say!" like we understand him :) He is becoming very interested in table food and will stand up next to us, patting our legs until we give him a bite :) So far he likes the table foods he has tried {sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, bananas, pickles}. We are really enjoying watching him grow & discover his world!
Standing by himself...and he can even turn & still keep his balance.
His "happy" yelling :)

I don't know what happened but he was all of a sudden scared of it or something. So we took the seat off & he now just stands at the table & plays just fine}
