Sienna turned 11 months old today, so the countdown to her first birthday has started! I can't believe it's almost time to celebrate her first year of life! Scott and I were just talking about when she was a newborn, and how we couldn't imagine her being a year old. She seemed so tiny, and time seemed to pass slowly in those early, trying months. But now here we are, with a baby who is almost walking, babbling up a storm, crawling up the stairs, eating hot dogs & watermelon, giving kisses, and learning to do so much on her own. What a dynamic year!
Her front, top teeth have finally broken through her gums (well at least one has... she's still working on the other). Poor thing teethes forever before her teeth actually come in. She gets a bit fussy, but nothing major. And luckily, she sleeps through the night when she's teething.
At the indoor playground at a local mall. She loved crawling through this tree trunk and 'playing' with all the other kids.
Sienna and Scott rode the carousel at the mall, too. Funny story. Scott told me when he first approached the horse on the carousel, he was thinking, "how am I going to hoist myself up on this horse AND get Sienna on my lap?" Luckily, he spotted another little tyke who was sitting on the horse alone, so Scott saved himself an embarrassing moment and potential injury. (Well I guess he wasn't spared of the embarrassment since I'm recounting it here. Thanks for being a good sport, honey!)
So cute with her pigtails & painted toenails
So sweet.... "put me to bed, Daddy."
Crawling up the stairs... a favorite activity lately
After she crawls up the stairs, she immediately crawls into the bathroom and peaks her head around the door at us with a big smile. We do this EVERY time she crawls up the stairs - great memory!
Sienna knows to hold the phone up to her ear and "talk" when someone else is on the line. Seriously?!? She already wants to talk on the phone?!
