11 months!

age: 11 months! I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that my little baby is going to be a year old in less than a month... where has the time gone?!

weight: I am again guessing since I won't know for sure until her one year well visit, but I would say she has to be close to 25lbs if she is not there already!

food: We recently learned that we have a bbq lover on our hands.  For Brandon's birthday we ordered bbq from Black Hog, one of our local favorites, and she loved it!  She likes the Carolina chopped pork - she is her mama's daughter :)

She has also become quite the cheese lover.  The apple did not fall far from the tree.  If she sees a cheese stick come out of the fridge, she makes it known that she wants it.  Gotta love that little girl!

milestones: The little miss is WALKING! At this point, she will only do it if she is holding my hand, but we're getting there.  She will take a few steps on her own and more if she has my hand.  She loves the praise she gets from those solo steps.  She gets so excited that she must stop and clap her hands and join in the celebration instead of continuing to walk.

favorites: She loves to play with her Fisher Price laugh & learn car.  She dances to all of the songs and even attempts to repeat some of the words. She is so stinkin' smart.  She has really developed a love of books which makes me one proud mama.  She wants to read at least three every night.  While we only read and look at pictures in one, we have read others enough that I recite them to her after we turn off the lights and before I tuck her in bed. 

looking forward to: I am really looking forward to her first birthday and having family at the house to celebrate.  It will be the first time my parents have seen her (in person) since July and I cannot wait for them to see how much she has grown. I am also looking forward to her first Halloween.  I never really liked Halloween since it conflicted with my birthday, but now that Natalie is here - the day has taken on a whole new meaning :)
