11 months old...big girl!

11 months old and quite a handful! Here are some pics....some are from our recent trip to STL for some friends' wedding. Not much new to update except that she is throwing tantrums and I'm trying to regain control of my boobs! She is starting to pull my shirt up in public and that means its time to be finished with breastfeeding! She's not too keen on the idea yet.

She's a Climber!!

My daughter is .... a handfull, among other things! We had a great weekend playing in the floor and reading books. She also proved to be quite a problem solver! She likes to pull up on the laundry basket and push it around, walking behind it. She pushed it over to the coffee table at one point. Well, you can see the rest of what happened!

Normally, I would make sure to take a better pic with her eyes open, but she dove off the coffee table head first. I barely got my hand under her head before it hit the floor. You can see that she also likes to play postman. We put our mail on the table there and she redistributes it...all over the floor. The picture of her and Vegas is how we spent the rest of our Sunday. She loves that darn dog and thank God he puts up with her!

AnnaJo finally said Mama on Friday, August 7!! (10 months old) I was at Pizza Hut at a Jordan Essentials (Country Bunny) party with Amy. I was looking at the catalog and AnnaJo crawled over to get one of her cheese puffs. She came over saying 'ma ma ma' like she's been doing it forever! I was so excited! She didn't say it again for another day, but now it's been added to her regular vocabulary, including her crying it out time in the middle of the night. It's a heart breaker, but I haven't given in to it yet. I time is coming!

She is also standing up in the middle of the floor by herself. Her balance is really coming along and I anticipate some steps in the next few weeks. She loves to stand up, but not nearly as much as she loves falling on her butt. She is so funny!

too cute not to share!

You can barely see it now, but AnnaJo took her first big tumble down a step this weekend. She had quite a scratch on her nose Saturday, but it looked much better on Sunday. Cliff had her out on the front porch and turned his back for a moment. Down the front step she went....face first. It was her second or third time down the step and she did it right the first 2 times. She took it like a champ though and tried to do it again yesterday. She is a little ham...a perfect mix of Hammond and Hill.
