Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

11 months

Maggie turned 11 months on November 27th.  I can't believe she is less than a month from being a year old.  This year has flown by with her.  Month 10 was another fun month with her.  She is still so busy.  She isn't walking yet but will hold your hands and take some steps.  She is also letting go of the table and moving to the couch and back again.  She now has 7 teeth.  4 on top and 3 on the bottom.  She is saying more words and repeats a lot of sounds we make.  She is eating  all finger foods and is willing to try most things sometimes being the best eater of our 3 kids.  She still naps twice a day but but we have to be careful to not let her nap for too long in the mornings or she won't want to take an afternoon nap.  She still sleeps great at night.  She is pretty independent and will play nicely by herself for a little while.  I have to keep a close eye on her because she puts everything in her mouth but she doesn't have to be entertained all the time which is great.  She is still the happiest baby I have ever been around.  She smiles and laughs constantly.  

Things she loves:

-her brothers!!!
-her brothers toys-her daddy and mommy
-her own voice
-smiles from others
-bath time
-pulling up
-standing on her own
-her fingers

Things she doesn't love:

-when everyone leaves the room
-getting her diaper changed
-getting in the car seat (once she's in it she usually is ok)
-getting her out of the bathtub

She weighs 22 lbs now.  

She was very hard to take pictures of because she is constantly on the move.  It took all 3 of us (the boys and I) to get these pictures.  I would set her down at the same time they would throw the 11 on her and then I would grab the camera to start shooting.  This took us 4 times to get any pictures of her on the lamb.

Happy 11 months sweet girl!  You are the light of all of our lives!
