My calculations just aren't adding up right...suddenly, according to the calendar, my newborn baby girl is 11 months old! Sheesh! 11 months old feels awfully close to 12 months old (aka ONE YEAR OLD---yikes!!!). I do LOVE this new stage, being Kendall's mom just keeps getting better! But I feel like I was JUST pregnant with her; the memories are still SO fresh. Alas, the time continues to pass quickly, and we have a talkative, mobile, silly, and incredibly sweet 11 month old. Kendall has many new tricks up her sleeve, but crawling, pulling up, cruising, and moving in general, seem to be her favorites. She likes to play "chase" and thinks it's so silly to take things out of drawers, or boxes (not so great at putting them back in just yet). We are enjoying her special language (that we have yet to decode), and how she clearly understands so much of what we are saying. It's fun to quiz her on things she knows, like where her head is or to put her binky in or wave "bye bye," and watch her confidently show us. She loves to dance, and sing, and TALK. So this month she is going to tell you everything you need to know about her right now. Enjoy! (sorry it's pretty long, but I just couldn't cut any of it out!)
I think what she is telling us is that she love's her Daddy!
And that she eats just about anything we give her (as well as things we don't feed her, like cat food and books), and loves to feed herself. She sleeps from about 7:30-6:30 and usually takes 2 naps a day. She just saw her Doctor and he said she is right on track with everything! She weighs 16 lbs 10oz and is 27.5 inches long. Here are her 11 month dolly pictures:

Evidence of book eating!
