11 months

Here we are again! Another "monthly" post about my little (or big??) baby girl. 11 months today. It's hard to think about her enjoying her first Birthday cake only one month from today!! But I'm getting little ahead here.

Kaylee is so much fun to be around these days (she has been since the day she was born of course). She has been walking for a month now with no problem and is into running now ( and what's really impressive that she can also stand up from sitting in the middle of the room all by herself!!!) so you can imagine how busy I am chasing her around the mall/grocery store every time we go. It's a work out I tell you. I just don't understand how she has SO MUCH energy. When in the clothing store, she'll walk up to a shelve with shirts/pants folded in a pile, grabs the pile a throws the whole thing over her head behind her. Then, she moves onto another pile, and than another one, and another one..... she gets around the entire store in like 5 min. because she literally runs from one side to the other and I'm busy folding clothes for half an hour after she is done :o). She is not happy when I put her in the stroller because that's just way too boring for her and you should see her doing "gymnastics" when I try to hold and carry her around. She wants to get down to run around so she reaches down, her head first and I'm standing there holding her up side down thinking why did I go to the store without Ryan..... he is a great help with her by the way.

It's fun though because that's her little personality coming out little by little every day and I'm just in love with my sweet Kaylee.
She has 8 teeth now (4 on top and 4 or the bottom), her hair is getting long and thick and I can't wait to start doing experiments with it. Still favors mac&cheese over any other food and she is probably the only child ever born that doesn't like juice, so she drinks pure water out of her sippy..... My daughter is also very curious and can't stay out of cabinets (we have locks on them now, thanks honey), purses, grocery bags, name it. Also, for some reason it irritates her when something is organized, like a pile - has to be thrown around the room, clothes on a hanger - comes into my closet and pulls every single shirt off, opens up every drawer on her and our dresser and takes everything out, empties my purse whenever she gets to would have to see it.
Sleeping is still not one of her favorite things to do during the day. I think she takes it as a waste of time since there is so much to do :o). I wouldn't change it for the world though because that's who my Kaylee is. One busy girl. She is happy, energetic, sweet, and always shares everything from food to toys. It's so cute when she eats and comes up to me with whatever she is eating and gives me a piece, when she has a binky in her mouth she puts one in my mouth too and when she is playing with her toys she makes two piles - one for her and one for me.....

I love her, I love spending every hour of every day with her. I love walking into her room in the morning when she wakes up and waits for me standing in her crib with the biggest cutest sweetest smile on her face. I love hearing her laugh, watching her steal toys from Coby and play with him, I love seeing her snuggle with her dad on the couch every single night right before she goes to sleep, I love watching her splash water all over the bathroom when she is taking a bath and I love how patient she is with me. I just love everything about her and I love being a mom. Happy 11 moths Kaylee! We love you!!

Kaylee taking control over the situation :o).

Oh my gosh she's walking all over? Already a little toddler. She is so precious, I love this age.
