11 Months!

Karlyn Kaye.  You are 11 months old!  The time has just been flying by and you are growing up to be one sweet, silly little girl.  I'm glad we only have one more glider photo shoot though...you will NOT stay still!

Here's what you're up to~

You still drink 3 bottles a day and eat 3 meals.  I thought you were going on a bottle strike there for a while but I think you were just cutting more teeth.  Speaking of those pearly white chompers, you have SIX now!  Four on the top, and two on the bottom.  They're so cute and you can really see the top ones now when you smile.  You have a gap between the top two middle ones and we're quite sure you'll need braces just like both of your parents.

You sleep from about 7:30 to 7:00 (ish) and you take two naps a day - one at the sitters and one at home in the afternoon.  I love those naps!  I try to rest too during that time...You can say:

  • mama
  • dada
  • bye bye
  • be be (baby!?)
You point to your picture and say "be be!"  You call me over and over..."ma ma ma ma ma!"  It's cute.

You're learning to drink from a sippy cup and you're a bit picky these days when it comes to meals.  When you're done, you like to throw food on the floor for Dodge.  Great habit.  Your favorite food is pasta!  Specifically, Annie's Mac n Cheese.

You like to watch Wonder Pets sometimes but tv just doesn't hold the same allure that it used to for you.  You'd much rather crawl and now WALK around the house.  Yes.  You are walking SO MUCH big girl!  It has really taken off and you just walk wherever you please now.  You even can crawl up Nona's stairs so she's trying to teach you how to safely come down them.  You like to shriek like a pterodactyle (sp?) still and you squirm like crazy *or just crawl away* while I'm trying to change your diaper or get you dressed.

You wear size 4 diapers and size 12-18 month clothes and size 4 shoes.  But mostly you go barefoot :)  We're having an unseasonably warm Fall!  You want anything that's not yours: the mail, daddy's cell phone and computer, the tv remotes.  You're just getting so BIG and you're not my tiny little 7 lb bundle anymore!

Mommy and daddy love you sweetheart.  We can't remember life without you and you make us shake our heads and laugh every day.  God gave us a GIFT when He gave us you.

***Happy 11 Months!***
