This time last year I was 35 weeks pregnant. I remember that I loved feeling Munchkin kick and move around. I was looking forward to meeting her and nervous about becoming a mama at the same time. The Man and I were doing our best to enjoy the last weeks we had together just the two of us. The past year has flown by.
Now I have an 11 month old. A walking and trying to talk 11 month old. She’s learning thing so quickly now. Just this week she figured out how to stand up without holding onto anything. She had been working on it and all of sudden she did it. There really isn’t much slowing her down anymore! When she’s excited she tries to walk faster and often lands on her bottom but she getting more and more steady everyday.
She babbles and there are times that it sounds like she says words. Baby and yeah have come out of her mouth but she hasn’t used them correctly so we’re not counting them. She’ll also go mamamamamamama and dadadadadadadadadada and we’re just waiting for the words to come out. I think she’s going to be a talker. I’m looking forward to having her tell us what she’s thinking about!
She knows the word NO and what it means when we say it to her. We usually get one of two reactions. One is that she keeps doing whatever it is until we make her stop. The other reaction is for her to cry like someone just took her favorite toy away from her forever. We just smile at her crying and give her a kiss and the crying usually doesn’t last very long.
I love being her mama. It’s a lot of work and a lot of fun. I love the snuggles and her hugs can make any day better. Being a mom is the best job I’ve ever had.
