Escaping Eleven {Months}

That right - escaping, Emmalee Caroline - that is exactly how I feel about the past 11 months, they have escaped me and I know no clue where they have gone. Oh, but they have been the most amazing eleven months! 

The biggest new development is that you are starting to walk!  It seems like you just learned how to crawl, but now you are off to explore the world on foot.  

You are still one of the most content and happy baby I have ever known.  You love people and love to play! You rarely cry and are still a great sleeper and eater.  You still go to bed about 8:00 in the evening and wake up around 6:30.  You used to sleep later on the weekends, but you are growing much more consistent with your wake up time, regardless of the day.  You take two naps usually about an hour and a half each.

You eat 3 solid meals a day and are eating alot more table/finger foods.  You love to feed yourself and so far there is nothing that you don't like!  Some of your favorite foods are avocado, bananas, peaches, pears, carrots, peas and chicken.  This week you had meatloaf and loved it too!  You still have 4 6 oz. bottle each day.  This week we began mixing a little milk into your formula to ease the transition.  

You still wear a size 3 diaper and are wearing mostly 9-12 month clothes, with a few 12 month outfits mixed in because it has been very warm lately.  

Every day you seem to be becoming more and more of a daddy's girl.  You smile the instant you see him and almost leap into his arms. Everyday your hair seems to get lighter and lighter.  Your blonde hair and blue eyes are just like him, too.  You have a lot of your daddy in you, sweetheart, and that is a wonderful thing.  You are patient, you are funny, you have sweetest spirit about you, and you love to laugh and smile just like he does. 

Only one more month until we celebrate one of the most amazing days of my life - the day you were born.  Oh how I love you more than I ever thought possible, sweet girl.  Your name alone brings a smile to face and laughter to my heart. 

I love you, Emmalee Caroline Williams, and you are {still} the light of my {and your daddy's} life!
