November 22, 2011 - Double Digits

Another month down and our boy is now even closer to his first birthday.  That is very hard to believe!  He survived his first 10 months in Nairobi and is now enjoying some holiday time in Denmark.  

This past month has been a busy one for all of us as we prepared to move from Nairobi.  Noah spent a lot more time with Rose than ever before as Kristoffer worked a lot and I both rushed around like a crazy woman and kept a closer eye on Grace who was processing a lot about our transition.  He seemed to do well throughout all of this, and his bond with Rose was both strong and sweet, thankfully.  

In the last month he has really improved his drumming skills - I swear he is going to be the musician in the family!  He is a good climber and is more Curious than ever (note the capital C!).  No new teeth - although they must be coming! - and no new improvements in the sleeping department.  In the last few days he has eaten more small finger-foods than ever before without choking too much, which I think is great progress.  His personality is still very sweet; he seems to be quite a Mama's boy these days (not sure if he is clinging to me because I've been so busy the last month, or because he misses Rose and I am a good substitute!).  

This boy has a wonderful little laugh and continues to look up to his big sister - nobody makes him laugh quite the way she does.  It melts my heart every time.  

Noah celebrated his first Halloween, his first time swinging, his first wave (which he now does more regularly) and his first time standing on his own this past month.  The question remains: will he or won't he walk before his birthday?  Maybe the very cold weather will motivate him to walk or run!

Love this little guy!
