11 months old... one month shy of being a year old! I am still waiting on someone to tell me this is all a joke! My baby girl CANNOT be a month shy of being ONE year old! Oh this girl... she is FULL of it these days! If it is possible for her to be 11 months, then it is possible for her to be entering the terrible twos! Ha! This girl can throw the fit if she doesn't get her way... back arching, throwing herself on the floor, kicking her feet, clinching her fists, screaming something... that some days we are sure they are cuss words, etc. etc. etc! But even after all of that, she is the most precious, funny thing I have ever met! She constantly makes us laugh. She is jabbering up a storm these days, and sometimes, I feel like I am actually carrying on a conversation with her! :) I feel like each month she becomes more of a toddler and less of a baby... which makes me so excited about the future! She has her daddy completely wrapped around her finger, but what am I saying... she completely runs our house! And we wouldn't have it any other way! I still wonder why God loves us so much... I know I am not worthy of a life so perfect, but He continues to bless us! And this girl is living proof...

It is now 1 month before you turn 1 YEAR OLD! I have no idea how time can fly so fast! It just doesn't seem possible, but I am sure I tell you that with each monthly post! :) You have the most amazing personality... I think you have a little of your dad and I both in you. Although, I think you got your daddy's hard headed-ness and independence! You are funny and always trying to make us laugh, including Berkley! It just makes my heart so happy to see you all play together. You just love him more and more everyday. I am not so sure he enjoys you pulling his hair though! :) You started your first daycare, and although the drop offs are rough for mommy and you both, they say you are perfect, and you are always happy when I pick you up! I REALLY hope you love it! :) And I know I tell you this in every post too, but you really are the most PERFECT thing I have ever seen! You are beautiful, and everyone always comments on how pretty and happy you are... and you usually wave and tell them Hi as we pass them! :) You LOVE to climb in and out of everything... baskets, boxes, chairs, etc. You definitely keep us on our toes! I pray everyday that we will teach you the right things.... how to be responsible, respectful, thankful, kind hearted and to know the Lord, love Him and praise Him. I love you baby girl. You are my very best friend... that will never change!
