Elise 11 Months

DSC_0002Sweet Elise,

You are 11 months old and I cannot believe how fast time is going by! I am planning your 1st birthday party and it is crazy that a year ago you were still in my belly!

  • You have 9 teeth now! The ┬álast one came through really fast!
  • You love to eat, the only thing that we have come across that you do not care for is green beans
  • You can sort of say sissy. It sounds like a snake hissing but you only do it when looking at Brielle so we think it is sissy.
  • You are clever! If we do not come and get you out of your crib AS SOON as you wake up you have figured out how to take the crib guard off so you can chew on the crib rail.
  • You and Brielle really love playing together. Especially in the tub.
  • You are cruising all over. You even stand on your own, but you are still a bit nervous to take a step.
  • You make noises like you are trying to communicate. We cannot wait to hear you start learning more words.

We love you! Thank you for adding so much joy to our family!

Dear Elise,

Once again momma is running late on your monthly posts! We have had such a busy summer of fun that I let it slip.

You continue to be the happiest baby ever! Even while teething you are so smiley!

  • You have 8 teeth now! 4 on top and 4 on the bottom, luckily you have learned not to bit so much.
  • You are still nursing but it is definitely slowing down. I think we will quit right at one year old.
  • You are pulling yourself up and walking around the living room slowly and holding on to the furniture.
  • You do not like to be penned in the living room. You have learned that you can slide the toy box and crawl through. You look back and see if anyone noticed and if they did you do a super fast crawl to the other side of the room.
  • You say momma and dada in the right context and we love to hear it!

We love you so very much Elise!!!
