Sweet girl! We’ve already had eleven months with you! You are such a picture of pure joy to us. Your smile, your excitement, your incredible bubbly laugh when your brother does anything at all (particularly jumping on the bed with him..). You flap your arms wildly when you like something. And you’ve begun to put your hands together to indicate more, which I’ll take any day over the smacking of your highchair tray until all your food is on the ground (and thus, eaten by Maverick). You now eat pouch veggies/fruits (praise God.) but still will only eat pomegranate seeds and butternut squash in it’s pure veggie form.
Up until last week, you slept in your hammock bassinet but you’ve just inherited big brothers old sleep suit and are now sleeping flat in your crib.. well, more like a starfish given that sleep suit (it’s seriously magic.. makes bedtime such a breeze!). You are, at times, my extra appendage, but I know that is fleeting, so for now I’ll keep you on my hip!
Oh! And I can’t forget that you love to twirl your hair while sucking your fingers during naptime and bedtime. For awhile there, you compuslively would grab strands of my hair and tug (nay, rip.) while you stick them in your mouth. It’s caused a few late night struggles between us.. But now that your hair is longer, you are happy twirling your own. Heh. We love you Kate..
