Elliana at 11 Months

I am very sad to write this post because it reminds me that we are already in the last month of Elliana's first year of life. The months seem to be going faster and faster.

Elliana, this is your life at 11 months old:

~I don't know exactly what you weigh, but I would guess that you are just a little over 16 pounds now.

~You are still wearing 6-9 month clothing. Although I think you will be wearing 9-12 month clothing soon.

~You have two bottom teeth. It looks like you have a few teeth almost poking through the top.

~Your eyes are still blue.

~Your hair is coming in fast now and it's looking dark blond/ light brown.

~Your hair is just barely long enough that I can put a bow in it now!

~Your nap schedule still varies day to day.

~You are crawling so quickly and you still get into EVERYTHING!

~You can stand for a long time on your own now. You have started cruising really well.

~You are still using everything in sight to pull yourself up. You use chairs, couches, cabinets, the bathtub, walls, and even Mommy or Daddy's legs.

~You'll play everywhere and anywhere.

~You're not really interested in toys right now. You are such an explorer and you just love to explore. You still really like the laundry basket. Only now you use the laundry basket to get you around by pushing it to walk.

~Lately, your favorite thing to do is to pull everything out of drawers and cabinets. You love to pull clothes out of drawers, and pots and pans and Tupperware out of the kitchen cabinets. You keep me busy cleaning after you. :)

~You LOVE your baths!

~You still LOVE to eat!

~You feed yourself really well now. You eat almost everything we do, with a few exceptions.

~You still have a very happy, bubbly personality and you smile at everyone you make eye contact with. You make everyone around you smile.

~You love to clap and you're learning to wave at people.

~You babble all the time and you can say "Mama, Dad-da, uh-oh, and Hi".

~Your current nicknames are Ellie, Missy, Baby, and Kid-o.

We love you Ellie, and we love watching you grow! Happy 11 months!

That video made me smile... in fact, I'm still smiling.

1) Your house is SO clean. Check one in the Major Fail category for me.

2) I love how upset she gets when she gets stuck! Hysterical!

3) I can't believe how fast this first year went! Ahhhh, it's so bittersweet!

Thanks for dealing with your older, weepy sister this morning. I love you!!

Wow, she sure gets upset when things don't go her way huh? I can't believe she'll be one in less than a month!

It's so fun to watch her grow through your posts.
It will make it feel like I know her when I get to see her again in Jan.

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.


We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
