for the record, at almost 11 months she...

  • walks about 10-12 steps at a time, but usually prefers about 4-5 before she busts down to her speedy crawl.
  • waves bye-bye.
  • can clap! clap! clap!
  • says mama, dada, duh (for duck), ba ba (for bottle), ni-ni (for her blankie) and baaaaah! (for BATH!). does the sign for milk and almost has "all done" down.
  • is still obsessed with the bath.
  • dances. this lady can shake it like a polaroid picture.
  • sings in a lovely, high-pitched voice.
  • loves licking any metal object.
  • has conversations with the baby einstein puppets on the TV screen.
  • loves reading books.
  • cracksup her brother with her headbanging skills. which is awesome since they share a room and she keeps him up alllllllll night. (anyone have any suggestions for this?)
  • irritates her brother by destroying pretty much anything he builds, wants to play with, or that gets in her way.
  • loves to get into the dishwasher, and open up the tupperware cupboard to throw every lid and bowl out.
  • has two bottom teeth.
  • also loves our bookshelf, she takes the books down in masses, then sits in the pile and looks through them individually as she jabbers away in her baby language.
  • has pushed my creative geniuses to the edge trying to keep her away from the computer, the computer charger, the DVD player and the cable box. don't even get me started on the box fan.
  • still is our little sweet pie, our fabulously sassy ray of sunshine. she has adopted so many nicknames (lee lee, chunk a lunk, miss pee pee pants (given to her by her brother) and sugar booger are a few) that i have to make a conscious effort to call her by her real name so that she recognizes it.

and we all adore her.

Ohhhh I miss that Little Leah! Kai is pretty much better but I want to be safe and not get this little sweetie or Caleb sick. Have a great week with your Dad and lets plan on next week for sure!

She is beautiful. I love those fun little things that make her special. Cute. I can't believe she's almost one. Didn't you just have her? What happens?

She is the most photogenic baby I have ever seen in my entire life - how is she not on the cover of something yet? Anything she sold, I WOULD BUY.
