Wow, this year is going by fast, and this baby is 11 months old today! She is also going by fast and doesn’t want to sit still for a picture for more than about two seconds. So we have lots of photos like this:
She is a child on the move! And my camera is being quirky lately and instead of seeing what picture I’m taking, usually all I can see is a white screen. So I’m blindly pointing and shooting. It’s like the olden days when you had to wait until your film was developed to see what you ended up with, except my camera doesn’t even have a viewfinder. I ended up with a few (only a few!) cute pictures tonight.
She still has the one lone tooth, but it’s amazing what she can eat with her gums. She eschews baby food for the grown-up stuff. Grilled cheese sandwiches are a favorite. She babbles a lot now. Her four favorite sounds (words?) are: Babababa, Nananana, Dadadada, and Mamamama. Her balance is getting better and she has been standing more often without holding on to anything, but won’t walk more than two steps on her own. I’m pretty sure she’ll be walking all over the place by her first birthday.
Although she had no interest in unwrapping a present, she’s enjoying the new little ride-on/push toy she got from Nana yesterday.
