Eleven Months!

How is it October 4th? How is Noam 11 (11!) months old? How can it possibly be 11 months since he made his spectacular entrance into the world! In some ways I cannot even remember life without this ball of sunshine in our lives and in others last October feels like yesterday. 

Suddenly, Mr. Noam is more like a little boy than a small infant. He fills out his car seat, no longer bundled up in a little ball. He's babbling, he's moving and shaking, he's waving, he's teething, he's nearly walking! 
He's so adventurous. I like to think that's a little of my DNA. Nothing is safe when Noam is on the move. He's pulling up on everything, trying to climb out of his walker, and tries to shut the laptop every time we're ichat-ing. Mr. Curious and Mr. Adventure all wrapped into one adorable package. 
 And he's a school boy! Avi says he's taken to his little class so well and it shows by his 12 hour night sleeps, I wish I could get that much sleep, Noam! Seriously, growing up, even bringing home artwork, I'm so proud!
 And his eyes and his smile, they get me every time. Every. Time.  He's so contemplative and so expressive. I would love to know what he's thinking and what makes him, him. Such a happy bubbly little fellow, I strive to be as happy as this little man!
And he got to get all dressed up for his first Rosh Hashanah! He looked so dapper in his oxford shirt and dress pants - and not to mention the shoes! He looks so grown up, it's killing me!
Noam, happy 11th month day! I love you something super crazy kiddlet!

Isn't it amazing how fast it goes by. When they are keeping us up all night long it seems like forever and the next moment they are toddlers.
