Eliel: 11 Months

Eliel turned 11 months old on Sunday! He has been walking a little more every day and is very fond of getting into chairs and onto any kid sized table.  (This is somewhat scary since he not only stands up on the table but takes steps on it!) He has taught himself to get out our front door and down our three front steps safely.  He is fascinated by our four chickens (as are most of the neighborhood kids) and loves going outside to watch them.  He has at least three words: Mama, Dada and nana (banana) but seems much more intent on moving around than communicating right now. Instead of using words he employs various screams to tell us he is in need of something, so Colin has started some signs with him to help us get past that stage. Less than a month and we will have a one year old!

Apparently the baby mullet is in our DNA.  Mavry had one and Eliel's seems to be making its appearance even earlier.  Colin is holding firm on the no haircut until 2 years old so we will see what happens with that!

He's growing and changing so much. Looking like a little boy!
Colin and Kevin had the mullet and did not get a haircut until 2. They had hardly any hair at all, but a long tail down their neck! Guess it is genetic:)
Such a cutie
