11 months!

Really? 11 months?? Time is going by TOO FAST!



Our 11 month girl is at such a fun age. She’s very vocal and is getting stronger at pushing us away when she’s tired of us snuggling her. She never has been much of a snuggler, which makes a mama very sad. She was sick last week and did let me cuddle and rock her to sleep for a bit, and even though I hated that she was feeling so yucky, I was loving that she let me hold her for so long. (She’s feeling fine now, btw.)

She’s thisclose to crawling and is starting to try and pull herself up to a standing position. She loves playing at her piano table, as you can see.


She can stand for quite awhile before she gets tired or starts to do the splits. But she’ll let you know if she needs repositioning, don’t you worry.


She still loves cheese and would rather eat only that than anything else. She is getting to be a little pickier at the dinner table but is still a great eater, eating everything that we eat. And she eats A LOT. She’s still rockin’ the arm rolls. When I took her to the doctor last week she weighed in at 17 lb 7 oz. Oinker!


She is such a curious little bug, and always wants to be in on any action going down. She continues to love to smile and laugh, especially to strangers we see shopping who always love to stop and talk to her. She’s a friendly kid, that’s for sure.

She’s sleeping 12-14 hours straight at night, which is heavenly. Then she takes a 2-3 hour morning nap and a 2 hour afternoon nap. I seriously attribute her easy demeanor to how well she sleeps. Sleepy kids are cranky, well slept kids are not. Anyone gonna disagree with me?

We are so thrilled to have her in our family. She brings us a ton of happiness and we just love her so much!

Always so fun to catch up on your blog.

a few thoughts: Yes, I am totally into Jacob now...who wouldn't be with a body like marble (wasn't that supposed to be Edward?)

Summer is adorable. she has Derrick's coloring, but I don't know if she looks more like him or you? She has some great arm rolls for sure. So, no crawling but just standing? I love her smile and her hair has lightened up so much!!! Those pics at the beach in FL were precious, you should frame some.

Great job on the Thanksgiving turkey too.

Your reunion comments were fun and it's a good thing you looked so hot! I was not a popular girl either, but ran around with the band too (flute player too)...

And your house is super cute!
