Henry Boy!

Here is an update for those of you who miss baby Henry in Oregon and Albuquerque. He is 11 months old today! Here is what he has been learning lately...
He has known how to clap and say clap-clap for a while. He loves when we sing, "If you are happy and you know it clap your hands..."

We also sing, "No more monkeys jumping on the bed." When it gets to that part he points his fingers and jabbers like he is yelling at the monkeys...he is our little monkey!

He loves to play Peek-A-Boo. Last week he was saying Keek-aaaa-boooo, but just this week he started saying, "Peeek-aaa-booo!" He plays it with his hands, his clothes or the curtains.
He loves to play with his farm, read books (jabbering), he waves bye-bye, blows kisses, he can say bye-bye, he repeats sounds a lot. Even though he has had an ear infection to some degree for the past 2 months, he is very happy and hilarious.

He talks a lot, I do not know where he gets it. He mostly jibber jabbers. Still likes to get into wires. He LOVES to move the furniture around and has been seen standing on his own and trying to go from squatting to standing (twice playing peek-a-boo with his cousin). Last night when Ryan put him in his crib, he grabbed his blankie that Mrs. Kleen made him and cuddled with it. OH and he LOVES Sesame Street...ya, we love it too. Should a one year old watch TV? Yes, especially when Ernie is on!

We both start daycare tomorrow and my heart is breaking. I am teaching a 2-3 year old class and Henry starts in the almost 1 room with lots of friend he met on Friday. He almost flew out of my arms to get to them as they were painting (ya 11 month olds painting). I know he will be fine and I can visit him, but I am still sad. I'll let you know how it goes.

I wish I was there to play peek-a-boo with Henry. Please tell him Aunt Shelli says "Hola" and Melia wishes she was there with her Unkie Ryan, Aunt Jenny, and Henry!
