I can't believe one year ago we were getting all of our stuff packed to move across the country in 2 weeks and have a baby in 4 weeks. What a crazy year it has been! At this point last year, I knew I was going to be in love with this baby girl in my belly, but I had no idea how much she was going to change my life in so many amazing ways. I had no idea the kind of love that was about to fill my heart. I can't believe it's been 11 months.
What would we do without this beauty?
At 11 months, Kate:
*Went to 7 peaks for her first time and LOVES it and went hiking in a backpack for the first time and did really well
*Pushes a walker toy (and everything else) around the room
*Puts toys on her head and laughs
*Can drink out of a cup with help
*Got her first tooth! It's the bottom left tooth. She also bled after getting hurt for her first time. She hit her mouth on the edge of the stairs and her gum was bleeding. Sad poor baby
*Can climb up on the boat seats and on kids chairs (and still loves all stairs)
*Ate her first French fry. She didn't like it at first but that has since changed
*Pooped in the bath for the first time
*Hits chest when she wants to get out of her car seat
*Starting to stand on own for just a short second
*Tries to mimic everything we say. Can now say 3 words: momma-momma, dada, and no-no-no and babbles all the time. She is a chatty Kathy.
You are getting so big! You love to stand up to everything and hold our hands to walk. You are so much fun and you are hilarious. You love to make everyone laugh and you definitely love attention. You are such a sweetheart. You go around and give everyone kisses goodnight before bed but if they try to get another one, you push them away and usually laugh, haha. You are still very independent and extremely determined, you want to do everything on your own and you want to do anything you set your mind to. You play a game with momma where we take turns laying on the ground then the other person crawls up and kisses the one on the ground, it's fun :). You cuddle on my shoulder when you are tired. You love people. You wave and talk to everyone and you get extremely excited every time you see the people you know. You love to play with daddy but when you are tired, you are a mommas girl. You are beautiful in everyway.
We love you baby girl.
