11 Months!

Eleven months. Eleven months!

August has been a whirlwind and I'm having trouble thinking back to the beginning of the month to remember some highlights for you.
You visited the beach and ocean and the mountains for the first time. You little traveler, you.

You met a lot of extended family during our family reunion and were content to be passed from one set of arms to the next.

You've started eating mostly solid finger foods and I haven't discovered anything yet that you don't like. You surprised me with even eating roast beef and potatoes!

You love to hold someone's fingers and walk the room, but will drop to your hands and knees as soon as a hand is taken away. I think you have the balance and coordination to start walking, but you haven't found the confidence to try yet. And, you know what? That is a-ok with me because I'm in no hurry to have you running around just yet.
You are still in a size three diaper and are wearing 9-12 month clothes, though anything with a waist still has to be folded over or pinned back so it doesn't slide down. My personal dressing highlight this month: your feet finally fit into your sandals! Better late than never now that summer is almost over.

Your brothers still adore you. Your Daddy is still smitten. And your Momma is still your number one fan. You are loved and cherished Miss Annalyse Joy!
