Little charmer

Lulu and I have been keeping busy for the past few weeks, going for lots of walk and visiting with lots of friends. She is now almost 11 months old (a year old next month, wow!). She has eight teeth, 4 up top and 4 on the bottom. It’s cute to see her experiment with biting things; she’ll daintily hold a Cheerio in between her thumb and forefinger and bite it in half.

Here’s a little video of Lulu that her auntie Chrissy took of her at her grandparent’s house. You can see all of those crazy teeth in her mouth!

She has basically weaned herself  from her bottles and is down to a bottle when she wakes up and one before bed, although the bedtime bottle is starting to fall by the wayside. She’s doing great eating “real” food and I try to add something new to her menu every week. And she has spoken her first word, which is “hi”! We’re still working on “mama” and we’re getting close to saying “wow”!

As for crawling, she really has no interest. It’s not a matter of not being able to, because she absolutely knows how to go from sitting to her hands and knees, she can get up into sitting from laying flat on her back-she just doesn’t want to. Her new fascination is pulling herself up to stand. But I’m usually what she uses to pull herself up by whatever means necessary-whether it’s grabbing my shirt collar or a handful of hair!

Everyday I marvel at how great this little girl is. I feel like I’m going to jinx something by saying it out loud but she continues to amaze me (and everyone else!) with how happy and good she is. Last night we had a large group of people over for a while and she had an audience of about 8 people sitting around her and she charmed the pants off of all of them!
