11 Months Old

I am in major denial that my baby is turning one next month.  How is it that I am going to be a parent of a one year old??  It's scary but oh so fun at the same time.  Each and every month brings new joys and excitement.  This little girl pretty much melts me everyday with her sweet little personality.  Can I just bottle her up right now and keep her like this forever?

This last month has been another whirlwind.  We settled into our new home, we all got sick (twice), dealt with a fire on the property (more to come on that) and tried to get out a bit.  Last week we met up with my friend, Cait, in Leicester to have another girls day.  And tomorrow, Ryan's parents are coming into town.  We can't freaking wait!!!

As far as Maggie goes, her fourth tooth came in while she was sick (of course).  So now she has two bottom and two top teeth.  She is working on her upper right lateral incisor now.  This past month I feel like her personality is really coming through.  It's been so fun playing with her and making her laugh.  I'm just going to let these pictures do the talking as her personality is coming through them.  :)

She likes making this new face all the time and whispers as she does it.

I could just eat her up!  This one has never met a stranger.

Pretty blurry but I included it because you can see her upper teeth (sort of).

She loves the noses on all her stuffed animals.  Apparently, they are pretty fascinating.

Love this one.  Ryan threw the bunny next to her to try and keep her happy while I was snapping away, and she snuggled right up to it.

These are just a few pics from my phone this past month.
I was trying to get a picture of her standing but had it on the square setting so it didn't capture much.  It cracks me up, because she just throws her hands up in the air as if to say, "look at me!".

Loves her books, and really loves to "read" them herself.

This is the head tilt that she does all the time.  I guess this is more of a body tilt here, but she does this to get a laugh.  Such a comedian!

She experienced her first Valentine's day.  I now have some competition for Ryan's affection on Vday. ;)

A little Vday spirit, and making homemade Valentines.  I can't wait to do this every year with her!

The best shot I could get with my little Valentine.

On Valentine's day we watched these two adorable little girls so that our friends could have a date night.  So thankful that we have each other to do this sort of thing.  (Maggie loves hair if you couldn't tell.)

Whenever it's not raining we try and get out for family walks.  I can't wait for the gorgeous summer everyone keeps talking about!

This last one is of Mags the morning after we had to take a trip to the hospital in the middle of the night for a high fever which caused her to shake.  :(  I guess we had to test out the NHS system here eventually but not in the middle of the night!  Poor thing.  She is still getting over whatever it is that got her sick.  Definitely looking forward to all of us being healthy again so we can get back to exploring!



  1. Is that a dishwasher with a window, or a clothes washer next to the oven?

    1. Hey Rob! It's a washing machine and dryer combo. That's just how they do it here. Ha!

  2. She is so adorable. They do grow up fast for sure!

  3. I am looking for my memories through the stories, the narrative of people. I feel it is difficult but I will try.


I'd love to hear from you!
