11 months!!!

air (bass) guitar???

Conor is 11 months old today! Time is really flying lately. This month he perfected crawling, pulling up, and has started cruising and walking with help. He's into EVERYTHING - it's fun to watch how curious he is but exhausting keeping him out of trouble. He seems to be less frustrated now that he can get around so easily. However, he has also started throwing mini tantrums when he doesn't get his way. His personality has really bloomed, too. He's a funny little dude! Everywhere we go, he likes to flirt with people he meets - no signs of stranger anxiety at all.

We are busy planning his first birthday party, which will be at home on his actual birthday, June 26th. He has a busy month leading up to that. We're taking a vacation to Traverse City this weekend. We're also looking forward to his one year photo session with Kelli of Purple Tree Photography, who did his newborn pictures. We will have them taken at Matthaei Botanical Gardens in Ann Arbor on June 12th.
