Finnley Joan: 11 months.

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

How in the world are you almost one baby girl?! While I try to figure out where this last year went, here's your eleven month update!


Just today (December 7th, 2016) you finally signed please when I asked you to say please for some more breakfast! 

You will occasionally say "hi dad" but only when you're in the mood for it. 😆

You shake your head "no" at us when you don't want something we're trying to give you. 

Little by little you're getting more brave with walking while holding onto things.

You still only have your two bottom teeth. That's it! By this age Kennedy had five teeth with a sixth one on the way! I think your top ones are close to coming in, but we shall see...

You blow kisses and it's so darn cute. 😘

A couple of times I've gotten you to clap when we start to sing "patty cake."

Your sassiness continues to shine through. For example, you get mad at Kennedy when she takes something from you and/or you squawk at her to let her know it's not okay and to get my attention to help referee the situation. 😂

That being said, y'all are starting to play better together! I put you down on the floor as I was checking out our books at the library today and you started crawling away, at which point Kennedy decided to chase you on all fours and y'all were both cracking up SO hard. That was a moment that I want to etch in my memory for forever.

You and your sister make life a little crazy at times, but then y'all go and do something really cute and funny (like you did today 👆🏼) which makes us slow down and soak in the goodness that y'all bring into our lives each and everyday.
