11 months

My Darling Sammi,
Today you are 11 months old! (Well, yesterday really.)

This is our last monthly update before you turn 1.


Right now you:

*love to dance and sing
*shake your head no-no
*are saying up and hi (to everyone)
*are starting to sign for milk
*have a particular whine when Jack is aggravating you (or won't let you in his room)
*are a cheese connaseur - provolone no, gouda YES!
*have two little teeth
*love the sandbox (and yes, you eat the sand, nasty)
*love exploring the backyard, so many things to see
*are snorting (this is apparently hilarious)
*really way, way too wiggly to sit in a high chair
*back to sleeping through the night
*growing like a weed! Daddy and I measured you standing up yesterday - 29 inches! wowzer
*twirl your hair while drinking a bottle
*or pet the cat's ear, which is amusing as all get out to me
*have CrAzY hair, and I have no clue what to do about it, too short for barrettes, but shaggy
*love looking up
*starting to wave bye bye
*trying to say "shiny", which comes out as shhh--shhh
*hate to be penned in by baby gates unless we are right here with you
*momentarily standing independently
*crawling at lightening speed
*fascinated by buttons
*equally fascinated by crinkly things, your favorite, favorite, favorite thing right now is to sneak into the pantry and grab packets of fruit snacks, which you then clutch desperately hoping I won't take them away because you love their crinkly wrappers

*and INTO EVERYTHING. Must speed up my baby proofing. STAT.

Love you baby,


  1. HaPpY BiRtHdAy Sammy!
    Lucky Sammy; lucky Momma!

  2. Just darling. I love the rosy glow on her cheeks...smiles..Renee

  3. she needs one of those taggie blankets/toys with the crinkle sound. i'm actually making one for my friends baby. you use the wrapper from baby wipes. apparently you can wash and dry it with no problems


Hi there. What say you?
