Troy at 11 Months

I can say this:

He's a walking fool - wants to walk everywhere
Still loves going outside - hot or not
He sweats a lot - like his dad - but doesn't seem to care.
Troy loves people - he's a big flirt and loves to stare and smile at anyone until they smile back
He has begun getting upset a little bit when either I or Brian leave him with someone else
Words he's saying (besides Mama and Daddy):
Addie (for Abbie, the cat)
Ta-du (for thank you)
Uh-uuuh (for uh-oh)
O-day (for okay)
Ah-dide (for outside)
ight (for light)
He will try and copy many words: hot, kitty, more, water....
Favorite Toys: Ball and Wedgits (he isn't interested in saying the word "ball")
Troy has just begun hiding his face behind his hands and playing peek a boo. I think he really thinks we can't see him which is hilarious to me!
His favorite foods vary - I'd have to say milk out of a bottle. He LOVES the bottle. We've been working on weaning him because we want him off the bottle by the time he's one year. When he sees a bottle, he gets very excited and breathes fast and heavy.
Unfortunately he does not like his jumperoo anymore. He will cry when we put him in it. Guess he's OVER the confinement!
He loves to walk from one end of the house to the other and then in circles - through the kitchen, living room and dining room.
Troy is now saying "Daddy" and throws out and occasional "dada". If Brian or I are not at home when he wakes up in the morning, he goes around the house calling out "daddy or "mama" looking for us. Of course this warms our hearts!
He will come "running" to us for a hug, if only for a split second. He is not a cuddly little boy.
He has 6 teeth - 4 on the top and those 2 on the bottom. I don't see any new ones coming in (yet).
He also has been very healthy. I hope and pray this continues. I know he will get sick one day and while I'm reluctant to say anything, I know that when he gets sick, it's just going to happen!
Below he is doing what he does best: Holds a ball and walks

This is the best photo I could get of all of his teeth:
He really loves going outside. Not a huge fan of the grass so he walks on the sidewalk until he gets to the paved road. He likes the pavement - and tries to pick up the "rocks".
