Eleven Months

Today my baby is 11 months old.

I set aside time this morning before church to take some pictures.  We went outside and she did this.

She’s got three new teeth in her mouth this morning, and by 9 a.m. it had already been a long day.

The only time she was cheerful was when her big sister joined her and their backs were to me.

Some things I want to remember about her at this age:

She loves to squat on her feet, then stand up in the middle of the room (instead of climbing up on something and then letting go) She’s taken 4 steps on her own.
She likes to steal her sister’s passa.
Yesterday morning she woke up saying “ma ma da da” in her crib.  So cute!
She’s amazing on her knees.  She can rotate from knees to feet and turn in a complete circle with her hands in the air.  I’ve never seen anything like it.
She loves to kneel, sitting on her heels and then bounce.  She can get her body completely off the floor by bouncing too hard.
She hasn’t met a food she doesn’t like.
She still likes to lay her head on my shoulder.  Now she puts one arm up around my neck and gives me a big squeeze at the same time.
She can sit in a “v” when she’s in the grass, with arms and legs up to avoid being pricked.
She loves being in the bath, and especially likes to stick her head under the faucet.

She’s a cutie, even when she’s hurting.
