How did this sneak up on me? You're almost a year old!!
We have had so much fun this month. You are learning a lot of new things and you are starting to communicate in your own way - your daddy and I love it!
|You love the kitties SO much!|
When I ask if you want breakfast, lunch or dinner you crawl right over to the baby gate that leads to the dining room where you eat.
If we ask where the baby is, you lift up my shirt and kiss my belly.
You crawl to the front door when I ask where Grandma and Grandpa are or if you want to go for a walk.
You know the sign for 'all done'.
You are cruising along all of the furniture but you aren't ready to walk on your own yet, which is ok with me and daddy!
What we've been doing this month:
Aunt Niki, Alec and Grandpa Mark came to visit and you absolutely loved all the extra attention! Aunt Niki and Alec brought you toys and they are now some of your favorites!
|Alec & your new toy!|
You are still going to music class once a week. You love dancing to the music, playing with the instruments and of course playing with the other babies! We also go to story time at the library and we try to have at least one play date a week.
We took you to Children's to have your eyes checked. You had to have your eyes dilated and you didn't like that very much. We found out you have blocked tear ducts and when you turn one we will go back to have them checked and if needed we will get them probed.
We have been busy planning your first birthday party in Illinois! It will be your first time flying and we are hoping it goes well...at least you won't have to be strapped in the car seat for 10+ hours. You will be having a joint birthday party with your cousin Erin and we can't wait to see everyone and celebrate!
And today, on your 11 moth birthday, you got your first haircut! We wanted to wait as long as we could but you were getting pretty annoyed with your hair in your eyes all the time. You did so great! You sat in my lap and didn't cry at all. Now you look even more grown up and it makes us miss our tiny baby even more!
Happy 11 month birthday sweetie! We love you to the moon and back!
Mommy & Daddy
