Elise... 11 months ago exactly, you were born.
I can't believe how much you have grown and changed and developed a personality! You are definitely a go getter and independent!
You are officially walking. Up until last week you would only take a couple steps here and there, but preferred to crawl still... but now you are walking all over!
You are 19 1/2 pounds, and right in the middle of the growth charts! Just like your brother! you are wearing some 12 month clothes, and some 6-9 month clothes still fit.
You love to eat. If you are ready to eat and mommy isn't ready, you throw a fit! you love roasted squash, multi-grain cheerios and grapes! you'll eat any baby food we give you. You don't care too much for eggs, but we are working on it! You eat most things we give you, so hopefully that stays!
you now have 6 teeth! 6! You are way ahead of your big brother who didn't have six until he was 15 months old! I think you are even starting to cut two more! And of course you had to be different and cut your eye teeth on top before you cut your middle two. Thankfully they came soon after so you didn't look like a vampire!
You are always on the go. you don't want to be held or cuddled, and would much rather be playing or toddling around. You really don't like to sit still to get your diaper changed!
You love your mommy. Unlike big brother who was a daddy's boy, you are a mama's girl. when you don;t feel good, you want your mommy. like this week... you've had a pretty nasty cold, and a couple days all you wanted was to be in sight of mommy.
you still are babbling a lot, but not talking much. You say dada, and I think you say doggie (but it sounds like dada too.) no mama yet. you do some signs, like milk, eat, more and all done. =)
You got to play in the dirt for the first time last week and loved it!
you are going to be a year old next month! I can't believe it! We all love you so much!
