11 Months....how is this possible?!

Okay, only a week late....I am so mad at myself, I have been so good up until this month. I can at least blame it on the move. 

On to the re-cap!
 
How is this possible? You are a few short weeks away from being a 1 year old. 
My little baby is turning into a toddler far too quickly


 
I was just saying the other day, you are almost officially a toddler! I think most moms get what I mean....you aren't a baby anymore but you aren't quite a toddler....but very very close!
I mean look at you in these big girl PJs! It's too much!

You look so big and grown!!

You have mastered the fake cry, the fake mad face, and the whine to get what you want. 
It's actually pretty entertaining to us. 
 

You have decided lately you are gonna be a full fledged Momma's girl. 

You still love and adore your Daddy, don't get me wrong, 
but the second you see or hear me, you go crazy!
And it is the best feeling in the entire world. Entire. World.
 
Okay, so here are a few stats:
You weigh________ **will update! I gotta weigh her! I am guessing 23?
You are in size 3 diapers still....but not for long, ready for 4s.
You eat everything and anything. You love love love food. 
Which makes Momma's life easier!

And you have become very independent with food, you want to do it all on our own. 

We have you down to 2 bottles a day with sippy cups w/ formula during the day. 

And you are finally loving your sippy cup! Which is good, because as of 12 months....you will have no more bottles!! :) 

Still only have 2 teeth, the bottom 2...with no signs of anymore coming.
You hair is starting to grow a lot more, but it is all on the back of your head....like an old man, it's pretty funny! And it is so blonde it is white!
 You are in 9-12 month clothes and even some 18 month.
Your little feets are growing like crazy, all of a sudden none of your shoes fit! I need to get you some more...and I ain't mad about that, ha!
You are a crawling, squirming, standing, moving machine! 
You aren't walking just yet, but you are so very close! 
This is what your poor little knees look like all the time!

You cannot sit still and you are into everything! Everything!

  

You went to Mississippi for the first time this month too, your Momma's hometown!
We went for your Godmomma's wedding! 

 
You looked so pretty and had so much fun!

You still adore your bath...except you have figured out you can climb out...which made for some very entertaining pictures one night!

Probably the biggest milestone you had this month....you moved out of your first house. 
You were a big help with packing, of course.
It was bittersweet for us as that was where we brought you home and your sweet little room was so special. But we will have an even better room for you at the next house!

We had our first Mother's Day this month too, and you bought me the sweetest card in the whole world! 
Hand print and all! 
And you made me this sweet pic at school!

We had Daddy's birthday too, we took him out for his favorite brunch!

You also got in the pool for the first time!
 
Baby...

 


And big....


You LOVED both. I had no doubt that you would be a water baby! 
And I think you in those bathing suits is just the most perfect and precious thing in the whole entire world! So it is a good thing you like the water! :)
You went to work with Momma a few times and you were a big help!

 

We got to hang out a bit in our future home of Franklin at a street festival with Miss Addie Mae and Mimi & Papa!

I think you enjoyed yourself.... :)

This month has been better than the last...as per usual. 
This next month is going to be very bittersweet for us as our little baby turns one.
You are such a fun, sweet, cuddly, happy, easy baby, Elise.
You have spoiled your Daddy and I with your ways and we know how lucky we are! You make us think this parenting thing is easy! HA! 
You are my perfect blessing and I thank the Big Man Above every night for your sweet love!
Happy eleven months, my love!
