Isla is 11 months old

Monday, October 15, 2012

As we approach my little girl's first birthday I realize two things, a. that I still have a lot of crafting to do for her party and I have yet again gone overboard and b. that I should tell you what she has been up to in month 11 before we move from babyhood to toddlerville.

My little Isla is a sweet, sassy, knows what she wants kind of girl.  She is cuddly but do not, and I repeat, do not take a toy away from her or you are going to hear about it.  I love it that her little personality is coming through more and more and she is showing us who she is.


  • You are mommy's sweet girl.  You are definitely still a mommy's girl and you sometimes follow me around crying until I pick you up.
  • You have started giving big sloppy kisses.  You come at everyone with your mouth wide open and your tongue sticking out. 
  • You pull yourself up and stand at things like tables and couches.  I can tell that you want to go from the table to the couch but just haven't decided how.  You will let go and stand by yourself then look over at the couch then go back to the table because the space between is just too large. 
  • You still push off with your right foot when you crawl and you can get around pretty fast!
  • You get mad, I mean m-a-d when we take something from you that you are playing with.  You have this loud screech that you do when you realize you are not getting your way.  You might be small but you will be heard
  • You weigh about 16.5 pounds.  I know this because you had the beginning of an ear infection and we had to take you to the doctor.  Don't worry, we caught it in time.
  • You can still wear some 3-6 month clothes but we have moved you up to 6-9 month clothes now.  Yep, tiny little gal.
  • You can drink really well out of a sippy cup and I really don't think you will miss your bottle in a few weeks when we take it away.
  • You are kind of over the whole baby food thing.  What is on other people's plates is  much more enticing.  You feel like a big girl when you get to snack with the rest of the family.  We let you eat out of your puff container and you just get this big smile on your face.
  • You are starting to like to play with toys.  You love to put things in containers and taking them out. Your favorite right now is a little purse that has a mirror, keys, bracelet and cell phone.  You really like the phone.
  • As of now, you are still toothless. It looks like the front two may come down any minute but for now you still have a sweet, sweet toothless grin.
I am so excited watching you grow up.  The last eleven months have absolutely flown by and I know the next eleven plus years will.  I pray for you nightly that you will shine like the sun and that you will be a light in your life.  I pray that you will see the gift's God gave you and that you will pursue them.  I pray you will be kind and loving and you will always make people feel loved and welcome.  I can't wait to watch you grow up, but please slow it down a little bit.  I love you.

Awww, so sweet! I miss the shoe socks, they were one of my favorite little baby girl things. :) See you this weekend, little Isla!
