A Walking, Talking, Smiling Machine!

Well - let's see if there's anyone still out there!! I can't even remember when I posted last!

Ah well - today's a new day! And today I am posting! Things around here have been going great (read: so busy I can't recall anything super bad, so it must be good!)

As aluded to in my title, Avery's become quite the busy-bee! She just recently turned 11 months and has been on the go with finding so many new things to do!! This is her just finding her feet! For a while before this, she'd simply been standing up in the middle of a room...and just standing! Then it turned into the experimental step here and there! And here she's finding her feet! Love the hair do??? Yup - that's after a day in pig-tails! Avery's of course!

And here she is sporting her Christmas jammies just the other day! Still a bit top-heavy, but definitely getting the hang of things!! And a quitter she's not - as you'll see with how many times Jim stands her back up in her attempt to walk to me!

We are having so much fun with her! She is saying a lot more these days too - not signing anything yet, but waving bye-bye and saying "Dada," "Muma," "ff-ff" for Dog, and "hoT" for the fireplace - emphasis on the "T"!

She's beginning to become much more interested in finger food/ anything that we're eating and...believe it or still napping at least 3 times a day!! She's 11 months old!! I'll surely take it while I can, but it's funny because our daily routines (and I use that term very loosely) hasn't changed since she was a newborn, with the amount of sleeping she does!! I guess that definitely aids in the fact that she's such a happy baby!

I was looking for something yesterday, digging through all of our boxes, and came across the journals I keep for the girls! "Oh right!" I thought, "I guess I had better update those, it's been a while!" Well, being unsure as to how long a "while" was, I looked back in Avery's to see the last time I wrote in hers and it was...June!! Argh...I hate falling behind in things like that!! I get frustrated with myself for not making the time to sit down and write something...even something short! Especially for when they get older and will undoubtedly be comparing the number of entires they each have! I don't think I ever missed a month of Karys' until Avery was born! Trivial I suppose, but a frustration nonetheless!'s this week's love-list...picture form!!
