Here's our sweetie at 11 months - and not feeling 100% today, poor thing.But in spite of her drippy nose, she still managed a few smiles here and there.I can't believe how the time is flying. And I can't believe how this girl is growing!Whee!At 11 months, you love any kind of attention. You light up when we sing to you, play peek-a-boo, or do pat-a- cake. You clap your hands when we sing "If you're happy and you know it."You still army crawl about half the time, and as of last weekend, you now crawl the regular crawl about half the time.Caroline joined us briefly to help you with your smiles. But you just weren't in the mood.
This would be Caroline hiding from Lucy to 'help' me with the photo shoot.That would be a ladybug in your mouth. Sometimes you grab your favorite toy with your mouth, and take off with it like a puppy!Maybe that's because you know your sister may take it if you don't hang on to it??
We found the railing again this month, and we love to peek through it, so we managed to get a few close-ups in.
Does she look just a little frustrated here?There's a hint of a smile there.Woe is me. One more month sweet baby girl, and you'll be a toddler. Yikes. Make it quit. I LOVE the baby stages. Even though my back is ready for you to walk soon, my heart isn't ready to give up those baby snuggles and the joy you get when I scoop you up. But you better believe that your Mommy is going to throw one heck of a helmet-free birthday party for you very soon! That, my dear, we are looking forward to!

Buggy Photo Shoot - The Outtakes

Hey, Mommy - What are these ruffly things on my legs?

And what is this spotted thing on my tummy?

Hey, there's something peeking out of my bucket!

Soooooo big!

You talkin' to me?

I think I'll just eat this hair bow now.

Let me show off my crawling skills!

Lady, I'm soooo done with this camera stuff.

That's okay - I'll just shoot pics of you sitting on your feet!

Time for a stretch.

Well of course she got in on the action, too! After she demanded a ladybug hair bow of her very own.

Lucy crawls up on Caroline for some giggle time.

And Caroline thinks photo shoots should include the feather boas. there's just a few hundred feathers left in her wake that I need to clean.

Ooh la la.

Hey, wasn't this a photo shoot about ME??? There you have it, the outtakes- very entertaining, aren't they? Now you know why I was sweating when we were done. That, my friends, is a workout.

Buggy Love

With the big one year mark approaching next month, it was time for a little pre-birthday buggy photo shoot!

And even though she doesn't stay in one place for long, I managed to get a few cute shots.

What a ham. Could she be taking after that sister of hers?

She was too fascinated by the ladybug in the bucket!

And definitely on the go! She gave Mommy quite a workout.

Yes, I'm still here.



You lookin' at me?

Putting on a show!

Not half bad considering how this girl was on the go the entire time. I'll have to post the outtakes so you can get a feel for how it really went! This girl is 11 months old this week. Yikes! It will be a sad day when we have our final photo shoot of the first year. We'll be moving on up to bigger and better things. Sigh. They. grow. too. fast.
