My Precious Ellie Belly,
You are 11 Months old now. How this year is flying! Here’s a little bit of what you’re up to lately:
On Christmas Day, you learned to crawl. It was just a little at first, and every day you got a little better. Yesterday, you learned to crawl quickly across the floor. You are coordinated now and you can move where you want to go. You are so happy and proud of yourself.
This was Christmas Day, the day you learned to crawl:
You love to talk. Your favorite thing to say is: Good girl, Daisy! You babble and sing constantly. You are loud, and I love it.
You love our dog, Daisy. You pet her and lay on top of her. You think she’s a soft pillow to rest your head.
You love playing with your sisters, especially Violet (4). You two chase each other and laugh non-stop. Your giggle is contagious, and everybody wants to hear your musical laugh. It sounds like little bells jingling.
Speaking of music, I have never met a person who loves music like you do. You love ALL music. If you’re ever fussy, we just have to put on music and you instantly turn happy.
You love to play Violet’s drum that she got for Christmas. You even know how to use the correct end of the drum stick, and you can keep time. It’s incredible. If we’re going to have a musical prodigy in the family, I’m betting it’s you.
You also love to dance. You sit on your bottom and get down to the beat. It’s the cutest thing ever…seriously, ever.
I can’t believe that in a few short weeks, you’ll be ONE. This year has flown by so quickly. I’ve carried you for most of it – your feet have hardly touched the ground and you still haven’t worn socks or shoes yet. You haven’t needed to because you’re always in my arms.
You still don’t want to eat solid food, and you love nursing more than anything. You are a cuddly little teddy bear.
Your big sisters figured out who each person in our family resembles from Winnie the Pooh.
Paprika (9) is Christopher Robin, Ginger (6) is Piglet, Violet (4) is Tigger, I’m Kanga, and Dad is Owl. And most of all, you my little Ellie Belly, are Pooh – our chubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff.
You are the heart of our little family, and we love you so! Happy 11 Months, Sweetheart.
