Month 11

Dearest Brynn,

I cannot fathom one little bit that in one more month you will be a whole year old! Where did the time go??

Tomorrow are your one year pictures and birthday planning is in full swing over here.  I always said I wouldn't be one of those moms who threw an over the top first birthday, but needless to say here we are planning a full on extravaganza.  What can I say, you are our princess.  How could we not?!?!

Let's talk about all that is new within the past month.  At the top of the list is you started walking!  At exactly 10 months 6 days you decided take steps between Gena and myself.  About a week after that you decided one day to really take off and you haven't crawled since.  Everyone always says "oh you're really in trouble now!"  But I gotta say, I love it.  Even though getting you to stay still is quite the task..and these monthly pictures are a huge ordeal now, which leads to me throwing snacks at you in hopes that I can get some pictures of you sitting.  But still nothing is cuter to me than watching you teeder todder around this house.  And you are oh so proud of your self.

You are understanding more commands now.  You wave hi and bye on command and always at the right times.  You wave to everyone when we are out and about.  You just learned to blow kisses this month as well.  You wont always do it, and you don't always exactly hit your lips...sometimes the ear... haha but we know what you mean ;)  You are shaking your head no when you don't want something, which is really very funny to us right now.  "Brynn ready for nite nite?"  Follwed by the head shake.
You also love love to "do nice" which is hugging and laying your head ever so sweetly on us or the dog...or your stuffed animals or babies.  I just absolutely melt when you play and just get up and run over to me and put your arms across my lap and lay your head on me and look up with that sweet smile.  You are the best.

Your top two teeth finally came down, so now when you really smile we can see all four of those little teeth and its hilarious.  Like a little bunny.  Speaking of laughing and think you are so funny.  Always laughing at yourself..and laughing when others laugh.  You just have the funniest personality.  Can't wait to see what the month brings my love.

Your daddy and I love you more than you will ever know.
To the moon and back.
mommy & daddy.
