BB is changing left and right, as I said in the previous post.
If you look left, you will see him climbing onto the couch.
If you look right, you may see him crawling up the entire staircase.
If you listen, you will hear him grumbling "NnNnNnNnNnNO!" at his mama when she tells him to stay on his bottom in the bathtub.
That's right, it's pretty official that he understands most instructions, as demonstrated by the good listening he does most of the time when we firmly say "You can't go back there (between the couches and under the end table), come out" or "No no, dirty" when he tries to pound on the diaper pail or the trash can. So when in the bath tub when he obediently sat back on his bottom numerous times when I told him to and then finally he just stood up and walked around in the tub and I told him again that we stay on our bottoms in the bathtub and he looked right at me and said "NnNnNnNo!", I knew that he knew.
(And bathtime was over).
He is communicating, pushing away our hands when we offer spoonfuls of food and he's full, and protesting with staccato babbles when I tell him that no, he cannot stick his finger in the outlet. He actually is a really good listener - he mostly only doesn't listen when naptime is approaching.
He is our little engineer, inspecting the mechanisms of each object, observing and studying. And he is also our wild little man, an explorer, rough and tumble all the way. A bump on the head? Scoff. A fall to the floor? Pssshhh. He is a boy through and through.
Happy 11 Months BB. You're so big, but mama still sees her precious angel baby barking in the bassinet.
