Eleven Months

Our little bug was busy this past month.  Growing, not so gracefully, four more teeth (for a grand total of 6!), exploring her world (she's starting to get sassy with her brothers, grabbing at their faces when they get too close), and even eating dog food!  Her personality is really sort of sassy, sweet, and awesome!  Her first Christmas was so special for us.  It was our first Christmas as a family of five, and she was happy to oblige with ripping up paper!

She is increasingly interested in reading books.  She's especially fond of peek-a-boo, or touch and feel style books, but also really loves books about colors and the book, "Ladybug, Girl." Her favorite mode of transportation is scooting on her butt, and if she ever flops over onto her back, she's pretty much stranded and will just protest until someone rescues her.  We've been working on teaching her how to get out of that predicament, but it's easier for her to protest because he brothers are quick to come to her rescue.  When she's scooting, she's quick to go over to something so she can pull herself up and stand.  She loves standing.  No steps yet, but we're close, I think!  Excited to see what the next month will bring for her - she'll be ONE YEAR OLD!  Time is so precious, and some days it's so hard to remember to soak in all these fleeting moments!

Oops, here she is on her back, and protesting to be helped!
