11 Months

This girl LOVES hats,

And Mommy,

And playing outside,

And Mommy,

And bath time,

And Daddy,

And the stairs,

And being with Tess,

And tormenting Amelia,

And being silly,

And being silly with her sisters,

And Daddy,

She doesn't love being sick. Which she is right now. Mean and nasty cold. She LOVES to point. She points at everything. I don't plan on telling her quite yet that it isn't polite to point.

She doesn't love nursing. So much in fact, that she stopped. All. by. herself. She loves her bottle...but only from mommy. She doesn't love to be babysat...by anyone. She loves to eat...but not peas and not celery. Everything else is okay though. She loves to stand up in her chair at restaurants. She also loves throwing everything in sight at those same restaurants.

She sits still for ponytails. She doesn't sit still for getting her nose wiped. She sits still when you have Reese's Pieces. She doesn't sit still for diaper changing.

She loves babies. Especially their eyes. Need a baby whose eyes are in need of a poking? Come on over!

She loves certain words and phrases. Among them:

Tssss - Tess
A-ma-ma - Amelia
I dih it - I did it
More - More (duh!)
Ah dun - All done
Guh guh - Good girl

Poor sick girl.

Happy 11 months sweet pea!

Wow.. She seems like she has changed sooo much from her 10 month picture! I hate watching other kids grow up so fast because I know in just a couple short months.. that's going to be my baby.. growing faster than I can blink.. :(

Sorry she's sick.. that's no fun...

I can't believe how this year has gone by with her! I remember this time last year when you were prego and very anxious, now that's where I'm at!

She is adorable....even when she is sick. I hope she gets better quickly. Having a cold is no fun....especially when you don't like your nose wiped!

I love that you've got her Halloweened up already. She's getting so big!

Jill said...

That is quite the vocabulary for an 11 month old! I love all the pictures. She's starting to look more like Tess! Oh that every child could be blessed to be raised in a home such as yours!

She's so cute! I love all of the funny ways that your husband carries your babies. It's always a different way that I see him pack them around. Darling though!

I love that you put pictures of YOU on here! You are beautiful!

I can't believe she is already 11 months. Where the heck did the time go? :( She is adorable as always though, and this was, as always, another darling post!

I can't believe she's already 11 months old!!!! And so darling!!! And her sisters' hair in the silly picture: You MUST teach me how to do that one. I think it was Tess' hair.

I can't believe she is getting so big, and I love how you document everything she loves and doesn't love to do.....I need to be better at that!!

I love the cute pony tails too!! Sorry she is sick.

Poor, cute, sick baby.

She's a doll.

So funny to me that she didn't really look like your other girls until I saw the picture with the little tiny pony tails. Now she looks like one of your little princesses!
