Wow I seriously just typed the Title and I am already in tears! Im sure that is an indicator for where this post is headed...

Age: 11 Months

Birthday: January 15, 2013

Weight: {Guessing} 17 Pounds

Height: {Guessing} 29 Inches

Sleep: All is pretty much the same, but a more set schedule. Generally, a two hour nap around 10/10:30 and then another two hour nap around 3:00. You are doing better sleeping at night, but there are still a few nights where you wake up 3-4 times a night. Nursing is still the only way that you will go back to sleep at night, but I am finding that if you have your blanket, pacifier and I rock you long enough, sometimes that will do the trick!

Bedtime: You go down now about 8/8:30. You get a bath first and then its play for a few minutes or read a book and then I nurse you and its out for the count!

Favorite Toy: Anything in the fridge, Christmas ornaments, Christmas decorations, the pots and pans cabinet,  straws, magnetic letters on fridge, trash can, eating Mommy's make-up brushes and the broom

Clothes Size: Some 3 months but mostly 6 months now

Diaper Size: Size 2

Im crying because I just dont know how this year went so fast with you! I am shocked that I am writing Eleven months because it doesnt at all feel like its been that long! I am having the time of my life with you! You are way too much fun, and way too smart for your own good. You pick things up quickly and when you set your mind to something, you will do anything and everything it takes to get what you want. Even if its throwing the worlds worst fit for it! You are strong-willed, stubborn and way to much like me, than I want to admit. But you are also so down to earth and just easy. You always go along for the ride and you always are smiling whatever we are doing, even when you are tired! We've been really busy lately and you just chill with us! I couldnt have asked for a better, happier, smarter baby then the girl I get to spend every day with! You are a joy! Its been so fun to see you "evolve" and become your own person. You are figuring out what toys are and you squeal and scream down the aisles because you are so excited! I cant wait to see what Christmas morning brings! Every time you wake up, you stand at the foot of crib and say "dog-dog". Harley is the first thing that you want to see when you get up! Its cute! You get excited too when Dadda comes home from work or gets you up! I have a feeling one day you will be a daddys girl and you will have him wrapped around your finger...dont tell him I said so :) You are getting better at playing by yourself. You get so focused on things sometimes that it takes you to a whole new place and you forget whats going on around you. Wish you could see how funny it is :) You have started dancing this past month and its my favorite. You are so into music, just like us! I cant wait to see if you are musical and if you want anything to do with music. You are too much fun! There is never a dull moment with you! You add so much to our lives Paisley Grace and I am soooo thankful God gave us you! You are quite the character and are going to bring a lot of joy to people :) 

I love you so much punkin!
