10 & 11 Month Letter

Where does the time go?! The months are flying by. In less than a month we will be celebrating your first birthday. You are doing so much these days that it is hard to keep track of everything. Here are some of the highlights:
*you wave hi and say hi to things. You especially love to say hi to your stuffed animals and then give them giant hugs. 
*you are walking and pushing yourself up to a stand
* you are a great eater. You like to try new things and will even eat things that are spicy. 
*at the beginning of November you were dedicated at church wearing the gown your great grandpa kent and aunt Jenna wore. 
*you love to make funny faces and will crinkle your nose to try to get us to laugh
*you have 6 teeth now, 4 on top and 2 on the bottom
*you blow kisses when you wave bye bye to people, and sometimes just because
* you love reading books. Your favorite is still Are You a Cow? Everyday you have to pull almost all of your books off the shelf
*lately you throw toys over your shoulder until you find what you want. It is funny to watch you dig through your toy box. 
*you don't like it when people leave the room and will cry when they go
*a new favorite activity of yours is knocking over towers, you get so excited that two blocks is enough
*you are trying to repeat words and sometimes make sounds that are close
*we celebrated your first Christmas! You had fun opening presents, especially if it had tissue paper you could crinkle and tear it

Now that you're mobile you love exploring the entire house and are having fun with your magnetic letters. 

Hugging is one of your favorite things. You love to hug Maggie and Mia. 

You love reading everything. I think your favorite part is turning the pages. Sometimes you won't let me finish the page because you have to turn the page. 

The faces and expressions you have been making lately are awesome. They capture your personality. I think that you're going to like being silly as you get bigger. 

Wating patiently for dad to get out your baby doll from Grandma on Christmas morning. 

Finally, you have some Wyoming gear thanks to Megan and Emma. 

You love to play and explore. You're always checking every inch of everything out. 

Sharing a toy with dad. You like to show us what you're playing with. 

All 3 of us on Thanksgiving day

You with your GG Helen and your Bronco gear. 

We're a Bronco loving family! All ready to cheer the Broncos on to another victory over the Chiefs. 

We made a trip out to KY to visit GG Audrey and Grandma. You loved GG and had fun sharing little buddy with her. 

Finally got this pumpkin costume on you a week after Halloween. You were not a fan and this was the best picture I could get. 

Playing with your new lamb from Nana and Papa after your dedication at church. 

Hanging out with Aunt Jenna and Uncle Brady during your dedication service at church. 

Well, that's a for now. Next time I post, you'll be a year old! Love you so much sweet girl.

  1. How is she already 11 months?!? I can't believe how fast this year is going by and she's not even my daughter. I love that she wore the same gown as Jenna when she was baptized, what a special memory
