Celebrating 11 Months and The Birthday Diva

Our baby is 11 months old... It's getting harder and harder to take your picture!

Look what Madison got in the mail today! Her very first OBU tiger t-shirt. Ouachita sends these for free to every alumni baby. All you have to do is email the alumni office and ask for one. Don't wait too long though, because the size is 12 months. Madison probably will not wear this shirt again. It's already pretty snug on her little frog belly, but at least we got a picture!

Isn't she the cutest little tiger?

Madison is growing up so fast. Still not sleeping through the night though. Here are a few things that she is up to these days...

*You are trying to walk! She constantly walks around while holding onto furniture, but she will also take a few steps toward you if you reach your hands out toward her and are very close by.
*She babbles all the time. She is seriously trying to tell us something...we just don't know what. She bosses around the other babies in the nursery. She is going to be JUST like her mother, bless her heart!
*She still eats baby food 3 times a day. Yogurt for breakfast and baby food for lunch and dinner. Still eats every 2 1/2 hours.
*She goes to Mother's Day Out on Tuesdays and Thursdays now so that Momma can get a little more done. She goes to nursery while Mom goes to handbells on Mondays as well. She loves playing with the other kids, especially older ones.
*She wears a size 3 diaper and 12 month clothes, but will soon be too big for them.
*She can drink out of a straw now!
*She loves her daddy, and looks around for him as soon as she hears the door open. Daddy and her play a cute game in her room that I love to watch. Daddy will put an article of clothing on the ottoman in her room and Madison will throw it on the floor. Daddy will keep picking it back up and putting it back on the ottoman and Madison will keep throwing it on the ground. Of course, the sounds that Daddy makes during all of this are...priceless to say the least!
*She has gotten a lot better at playing with her toys by herself. She still loves to be in the same room as Momma, but will play a little bit more. It's really cute.

Speaking of birthday celebrations, I picked up Madison's dress that I had made for her one year birthday yesterday. Since it's supposed to rain today, we took some pics out in the backyard yesterday as soon as we got home. I was so afraid I wasn't going to get any good pictures...but, I think I did. We are going to use this first picture on her birthday invitations. My serious cutie... I think the dress turned out darling. I wouldn't change a thing about it. This is the exact same color of pink we will use to accent the zebra at her birthday party. So fun!

Bootylicious...Isn't this just the cutest little booty you've ever seen? I was about ready to spank her little bottom trying to take this picture. I put snacks on her blanket so she would try to eat while I was taking the picture and the little stinker would turn back over and sit on her bottom as soon as I would get in position to take the picture. This is the only good one I really got.

Madison's birthday party plans are coming along. It's so fun for Mom! Can't wait!

MeMommie picked up Madison two little dresses Saturday. One for Valentine's and the other for her Birthday. If she continues to eat like her Mommie, they will be too small before it is warm weather. So I may need to take them back and get a size 18 months. What do you think? I am thinking they didn't have that size so I decided to go ahead and get them anyway because I thought they were cute.
I surely will be glad when she gets some hair so you can teach her how to "style" her bangs like you did when you were three. Do you remember the way you fluffed them up after you used the curling iron??? We used to have lots of fun playing "dress up" didn't we?

Madison is growing so fast. She is so adorable and I do believe she is going to be a duplicate of her mommie??? Especially if she is already trying to boss the little ones in the nursery!!

Let me know what you think as to the size of the little sun dresses as I was planning on mailing them in a day or two.

Love to my two little girls and the sweet daddy too. He is such a good daddy.
