11. Months. Old. How?!

It's true. You are 11 months old. 
I know, I know, I am not really believing it either. 
This means in 4 weeks you will be a year old. 
How?
You were just in my belly!!
Seeee......

And then, here you are....all grown peering out the window.....

You are growing like crazy to me these days....like I am pretty sure you grow at nap time...
You are in size 4 diapers, but could wear size 5.
Your are in 12-18 month clothes because you are so chunky and fabulous! But you can still get away with a few 9 month pieces. But let's me honest, you live in your sleep n plays from Carters these days....they are easy, warm, and I don't have to worry about your socks falling off! ;)

 

You still have the best little/big appetite!

You eat more than your sisters these days!
I think your favorites are still mac-n-cheese and now applesauce....or any squeeze pack....you suck those suckers down!
 

And of course, you love your milk!

You aren't walking yet, but you still pull up on everything

And just the other day I finally caught you cruising!! And you were sooooo proud of yourself!

And Mommy was soooooooo proud of you!!


You have a new found love for your toys these days too!
You love to smack and push and pull up on all of them!



 


Your sister has a found new love with you...I think she has finally figured out that you are here to be her friend and play with her....and she is here to take care of you....and I. LOVE. IT.

 


You two had your first Disney movie night....you made it about 15 mins into Frozen....ha!


One of my very favorite things is watching you two splish and splash in the tub....my little water babies!

You are in looooove with your fur siblings these days! You scream and giggle and beam and it is precious!
 


We got to spend some special time with family this month. 
We even got a super nice day and were able to go the park and you got to swing for the first time with Nana & Papa!

And I think it's safe to say, you love it!

You, of course, got to see Mimi & Papa....
(side note: I love that they live so close. I love that you will always know life with both sets of grandparents. One day, you will appreciate how very very special this is!)

But you also got to see more of GG, which is also very very special!
Her birthday was this month, so we helped her celebrate!
That GG loves you, we have decided you two are kindred spirits :)!


You had a few fun new outings this month....


You went to the church nursery for the very first time, and you did soooo good!!

You got to go with Mommy & Ms. Tami to get our hair done....and you were quite intrigued by the hair dryers....when you were sleeping or being the entertainment, of course!

We went to the eye doctor for your 2nd follow up visit and so far so good! Doc says he is extremely happy with the progress and didn't need to see you for six months!! YAYYY!!!

We also had a FUUUNNN playdate at the gym....and sister loooooved a trampoline!



We also had a quick V-day breakfast at Chick-fil-a since Daddy wasn't home from the farm yet. 
You were a big fan of your first taste of Chick-fil-a!!




You have learned some new tricks this month.....
You have been quite the help with Momma and her chalkboards!

You talk all the time, and Momma is more common these days....yaaayyyyy!!!!
 

You've mastered the game of peek-a-boo!
We play it just about every time we change your diaper.....and it neeeeever gets old!

And the most recent....and my most favorite.....my girl, can clap!!!
And you do it all the time now.
It makes my heart so full.
It is the ABSOLUTE cutest thing ever!

You are still a Daddy's girl!
Whenever he facetimes us from work and you hear the first word from him you can't get to that phone fast enough!
That sweet head starts spinning looking for him!



It's been a fun month nugget! 
It has flown by, but that's because you are just so busy ;).

Momma has started the big birthday planning....it will be here before we know it!!
And if you can't tell, the theme is...
"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, Turning One is What You Are!"
EEEEEEKKKKKK!!!!!

I can't even begin to talk about you being one years old.
You are still my baby girl.
And always will be.
Sorry.
Okay, I'm not.
That is just how it goes.

You are the sweetest little thing I have ever met. We are so lucky to call you ours. 
You make my days better and brighter, nugget. 

I love you to the moon.
and back.
again and again.
XOXO, Momma!
