11 months and Father's Day!

Lucy Clare--- You are now eleven months old. This brings a tear to my eye because this time next month, you will be known as "years" and not months! What happened to my little bitty baby?

What are you into these days? You are so funny, and have a shining personality! You are truly your mother's child!

  • You are walking! Yes, you are walking. You took your first steps last week while we were on our cruise! You got your walking legs at sea! When you fall down, we all clap and yell "yeah!" and you clap and get so excited! I am so proud of you!

  • You are eating "grown" people food exclusively. You have a variety of things you like to eat, particularly mac-n-cheese, grilled cheese (you love cheese like your momma!) chicken, all vegetables, pears, mandarin oranges, strawberries and bananas. When you are done, you will either push the plate away, or start throwing the food down on the floor.

  • You are still in a size 3 diaper.

  • You wear 12 month clothing and a size 3 shoe.

  • You are down to 2 bottles (maybe 3 a day)

  • You sleep from 8:30 to 8:30... wonderful!

  • You hug and kiss your babies!

  • You will carry your stuffed animals in your mouth when you crawl. I think you got this from Maize, mom's chihuahua! It is so funny!

  • You say "momma" "da-da" "yeah" and "oh" sometimes I swear I hear you say "mon" as in "c'mon" because I know I say that to you all the time when you follow me all over the house.

  • You definitely know what NO means and shake your head no when you are not supposed to do something!

  • You hand me things you know you cannot have, or when we ask you to give us something you will hand it over.

  • You don't watch a lot of tv, but when it is on you and you see something you like, you will say "oh" over and over.

  • You smile and laugh all the time.

  • You wave good-bye and hello.

  • You point at things constantly.

  • You went on your first 7 day cruise! and did WONDERFUL!

  • You are starting to get stranger anxiety and away from mommy anxiety.

  • No body can make you smile like your Aunt Heather!

  • You tried an Icee the other day and about let the entire Wal-mart know when I took it away!

  • You cry on command. Like when I tell you no, you will wait a few seconds, bring some tears up and then fake cry.

  • You love to swim!

  • You are so independent. You free play by yourself all the time, and are just so content playing with all your toys.

  • You love to read!

You are growing so fast before my eyes! Mommy and Daddy love you very much! You are so blessed to have so many people in your life that love you so much!

I want to also take this time to say happy Father's day to my two favorite men in my life. Scott is an amazing father and husband and takes such good care of Lucy and me. My dad is an amazing dad, but I have seen things in him with Lucy that are so wonderful as a grandfather.It makes me so proud.She is his little girl, and will always get what she wants from him! He is so overprotective of her and truly loves her so much.

For Scott's first father's day, Lucy bought him a tree so they could plant it together and watch it grow. Scott calls LC "sugar plum" and has since the day she came into this world, so we bought him a plum tree to plant in our yard. We had to give it to him on Saturday because he will be working and gone for Father's day. He loved it! I was so glad to give him something that they both can cherish for years to come!

Someone was trying to walk off the porch, so hence why she is so blurry! I had to hurry and take the picture!
My next post will be all about a fabulous cruise we all took.... cruising with a then-10 month old was the most interesting cruise we have taken! Fun, fun, fun, but way different that the old days of cruising!
