11 months old!!!

Sorry I'm a bit late in posting this, but as of last Wednesday, Kathryn turned 11 months old! It's hard to believe in less than 1 month she'll be a 1-year-old! Enjoy some pictures I took of her on Wednesday, and learning about her latest tricks and skills!Cheesing for the camera with mommy in a self-portrait!

So, for her latest tricks and skills. She is now signing "all done", which consists of waving her hands when she's finished with whatever she's doing. She's kind of getting over baby food, but is a little hesitant about people food. One of her favorites right now, though, is chicken noodle soup. She gets to eat noodles (which she loves), along with pieces of chicken and carrots. Yum! Bread, crackers, and bananas continue to be among her favorite foods, along with Cheerios. She loves to clap and be clapped for, and will clap anytime you ask her to, as well as when you say "Yay" or "Good girl", and when you start singing "If You're Happy and You Know It". Really, all I have to do is say the first two words, "If yooooooou're....", and she'll start clapping. She can now do the whole pattycake, clapping for the first part, then the rolling part too. She loves to dance to music, both bouncing up and down and rocking back and forth. She also does something called "boogey woogy", which means whenever I say that, she'll shake her upper body and arms side to side. She also "wiggles", which is shaking/bobbing her head back and forth, especially when we're changing her diaper or she's laying on the floor. She loves reading books, and her job is to turn the pages. She gets so excited to turn them she often doesn't wait for you to be done reading one page before flipping to another! She also still loves to hug people, but doesn't really give kisses anymore unless she's kissing a baby, her reflection in the mirror, or a baby in a book. She babbles all the time, and her latest "muttering" is the sound "ish" or "this". She is such a sweet girl, and we are continually so thankful for her.

She's getting so big. It's neat to see how much she's learning. Jaron is only two months behind Kathryn so it's helpful to know what he will soon be doing. Keep up the good work Kathryn! MAR
