Emily - 11 Months

Please, time, stop going by so fast...I am so sad that this will be the last month of my life where I won't have to say I have a something year old.   :'(    I am enjoying each new month with you, Emily, and love how much you are learning.  All of your "cute new things" are, well, just so darn cute!!

This month you:

Started dancing to music!  Your signature "shoulder shimmy" is way too cute
Are saying "uh-oh" a lot   :)
Copy some animal sounds (the lion is your favorite)
Are eating a lot more "regular" food off of our plates  (you LOVE banana pudding!)
Your second top tooth is coming in...and not looking great, I might add.  It looks like it's already cracked! Good thing we know a dentist at church...I will ask him to have a look at it on Sunday.  ;)
Copy me when I say "no-no" and point my finger...this is a naughty thing for you to do, but yet again, so funny and cute
You found out that you will have a baby SISTER!!  I hope you two will be life-long best friends.  <3
Suddenly hate wearing will yank on it until you scream because you're hurting your neck trying to pull it off...sigh.
You enjoy playing at the playground and trying to climb up the slide.  Your favorite is still the swing, though!

I love you, sweet Emmy Grace!  Here's to your last month before being a "something year old"!  
Love, Mommy


  1. It seems like only yesterday our children were small fries, but those days have escaped me. :( Treasure all these precious moments. I think it's so amazing how moms can keep a forever journal on the net of her child's development and it's easy to share these experiences with family near or far away.

    It was nice meeting you. Give our warm regards to your husband for serving us in the military. Our thanks pale in comparison to his & your sacrifice to keep America free.

    Thank you for stopping by my humble little blog. I am now following you via GFC. Also, I have a new easy peasy giveaway going on for a "Boothbay Harbor" North Country Wind Bells that you may want to enter. :D

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog, Cathy! You are very sweet. :) It's amazing how my daughter completely took over what was originally a recipe blog, haha.
