11 months.

I pretty much don't want to talk about it. I'm caught between being sad that my baby is going to be one year old, no longer a baby baby, and being proud of her and all the things she is learning. Either way, I'm pretty close to tears at any moment.

Last month Ellie grew two more teeth - her bottom right lateral incisor and her top left lateral incisor - bringing her total number of teeth to seven!

As you can tell from the pictures, her hair is getting thicker by the day - red? brown? blonde? We still can't tell, maybe the summer sun will bring out its true color. (doubtful though because of my stringent hat policy)

March was such a warm month for us - Ellie got to watch her daddy mow the lawn for the first time this year - she wasn't sure what she thought about it at first,

but then decided it couldn't get her through the storm door. (Yes, those are barnyard jammies - so. stinking. cute.)

Ellie's babbling has turned to jargon - she wakes up from her naps and starts chatting it up with her crib pals, Zebra and Coon, and is SO happy to see us when we open the door.

She still loves reading books - but is definitely partial to the ones that have pop-ups, flaps that lift, or touchy feely pages.

Our favorite thing from month eleven is best shown in video - hope you enjoy!

Ahhh! She's so big! I know how you feel about being sad/happy at the same time. I had a breakdown in the car yesterday when I was running errands by myself. How in the world does time go by so FAST?!
