Cody's Birthday Weekend

Cody's birthday was Monday and we celebrated over the weekend with a trip to our favorite winery, Balducci Vineyards.  
 The weather was really nice and the kiddo's had a great time playing. 
Wednesday night we went to Harry J's Steakhouse with Pat, Barb and Robert for another birthday celebration.

Brody loved Daddy's brownie!
Happy Birthday Daddy!

Eleven months

In 11 month old Brody news:
He has 4 top teeth and is (finally) starting to cut his two bottom teeth. He has been a fussy little man for a few days, but they are almost through, so I hope he’s back to his happy go lucky self soon!
It is getting almost impossible to take a good picture anymore, as he doesn't stay in one place long enough!  
He is walking holding on to everything, and really only uses our hands fingers for support.
He is nursing 4 times a day, eating three meals and snacks.  We are still working with the sippy cup, and have started offering whole milk (Horizon Organics) at meal times.  He really isn’t drinking much of it, but I wanted him to start to get used to the taste before we start weaning him from breast milk.  
We are really starting to see Brody try to "figure things out".  He will bring you his toys if you ask him to and put them into your hand.  He "shares" his food with you, points to what he wants, brings books to you to read to him.  He is saying mama, dada, and baba (which so far has been used to describe books, ball, doggie, cup, baby).  He knows what sound a doggie makes (woof) , and will growl when you ask him what an alligator says (what does an alligator say, by the way?) 
I am just enjoying him so much, and am getting pretty excited about his first birthday party planning that is underway!

I wanna do it myself!

had had a fit every time I tried to help him.  He is so independent these days!
