Eleven Months

"Yo, Mr. Elephant, Can you believe my mom makes us go thru this song and dance every month?  Enough already.
Yo, Mr. Elephant, Can you believe you don't have a better name than 'Mr. Elephant'?"
11-MONTH STATS:
Height: 30.5 inches
Weight: 26 lbs
Number of Teeth: 6

LIKES:
*Dancing- Dancing is innate to a human spirit.  You hear the beat and you gotta groove. Palmer loves to get down to the tunes from his learning table and "Party Rock" when that Kia commercial comes on the TV.  Check out his moves:

*Talking on the phone - Like most kids of his generation, Palmer is obsessed with our iPhone.  Early on Rick reassigned an old cell phone to be Palmer's play phone in an attempt to distract from our working iPhones.  Just recently, Palmer engages us when Rick or I "talk" on the play phone and then hand the phone to Palmer. (Excuse the blurry iPhone photos.  The boy is hard to capture in action.)
Sometimes, a shoe is just as fun to talk to:
*Waving and signing "more" - Palmer likes to wave hello and good bye to everybody we see out and about.  It's pretty cute to see him wave to everybody and wave at random times when we are at home.  Palmer also knows what he wants now and furiously signs "more" when he wants something to drink or eat.
*Cousin Elle - As Elle and Palmer get older, they are learning to play toys with each other very nicely.  Palmer loves having a cousin so close in age.
*Climbing - The boy continues to be fearless.  His latest craze- climbing onto his little rocking chair and standing backwards while rocking the chair back and forth.  Hello, future trips to the ER!
DISLIKES:
*Being sick!  February has been a really really tough month for us. In the midst of cold and flu season, Palmer has jumped from one sinus infection to the next ear infection to the next pink eye infection to the next 104-feverish virus.  When you have two parents trying to juggle careers and full daily calendars, life gets a little hairy and we absolutely hate to see the little guy struggling and uncomfortable.  I asked the doctor when cold and flu season ends and she assured me May.  MAY?!?  Oh my.  Here's sweet Palmer with rosy feverish cheeks:

Poor guy.

Happy Eleventh Month, Mr. Palmer.  Just a year ago, your mommy and daddy were very very ready to meet you!
