11 Months


Where oh where has this year gone? It is so hard to believe that in about 2 weeks I will have a one year old. How did that happen? It seems like just yesterday I was carrying you and feeling you kick around in my belly. I feel so blessed for being given this wonderful gift. I love you so much, I never understood how much I could love someone until I had you. I am going to cherish these next couple weeks where you are still my little baby. 
This month:
*You weigh between 20-21lbs.
*You have four bottles a day and eat three meals.
*You are in a size 2 disposable diaper.
*You wear size 6 month or 9 month clothes.
*You go to bed around 8:00 and sleep until 8:30 or 9:00.
*You take 2 naps a day that range from 1-2 hours.

You are quite the talker. You don't really say many words, but that doesn't keep you from trying!
You make this crazy noise where you move your tongue really fast. I'm jealous because both you and daddy can do it and I can't.
We celebrated your first Thanksgiving and you loved all the food. You've always been quite the foodie. You love mac and cheese. I think it's your favorite!

There was a toy airplane flying around and you weren't so sure about it. You stayed close to dad but kept your eye on it.

We decorated cookies and spent some time with your cousins. You three girls are going to BFF. I can't wait to watch you grow and play together.

You are full on WALKING!!!! I can't believe it! Sometimes you try to run when you get really excited.
I love it. I thought I would have a few more months before I had to worry about this but you are so busy and always on the go. You get into everything! I can't turn my back for one second!

I am so excited to see the changes this next month brings. You are such a sweet little girl and we love you more than we could have ever imagined. I am so grateful that I get to spend every day with you and wouldn't trade it for the world.

She is such a little doll! That is amazing that she is walking so well. She looks really steady on her feet. I love the picture of her with her cousins! So cute!

Aww! She is adorable! I have a big family with several cousins close to me in age, and we are all still very close! I know those girls are going to have the best time! :) I'm so glad Ellie's first Thanksgiving was a hit! :)
