sweet addy is eleven months old today. i know i say this every month, but seriously, where did the time go? how is it possible that the baby i just had is already almost a year old? craziness.

she is walking all over the place now. it has become her favorite mode of transportation lately. when we got home this evening, she must have walked back and forth from the kitchen to the living room for 15 minutes...back and forth...back and forth, proudly carrying her book! it was super cute. the best is when she walks to me with that big grin and lands on my shoulder for a big hug. love.

her personality is growing every day with leaps and bounds. she has started to show not only us, but miss rachael and miss anna at daycare, what a little 'tude she has. she is not afraid to let you know she does not like something. no clue where that comes from. (my mom might though ;) )

she babbles ALL the time. some of the babbling is beginning to sound like real words--dada, mama, and bubba are big names around here. she talks from the time we get in the car to leave her daycare to our house--love the little conversations we are having.

she has started playing peek-a-boo with me! for the longest time, it was a pretty one sided game. now she will cover her face with a blanket and wait for me to say "where is addy?" and pull it off her face with the biggest smile! love it!

she LOVES duke, aka "her bubbas". they are a dynamic duo. duke has finally warmed up to her--he actually is okay with her messing with him. for awhile he would just walk away if she would approach him, but now i think he really loves the attention! they are too cute together.

she turns a year old in a month and i can hardly believe it. i am getting her photos taken at the dallas arboretum for the big day. (i happened to win a photo shoot at school during teacher appreciation week!) stay tuned for those precious photos!

this little girl makes our world go around. i don't know what we did before she graced us with her life. love. love. love.

Ok, every kid needs a big dog... these pictures are precious! I love it! Kelly and I especially love the one when she is pulling Duke's face. So cute and what a good dog!

Holy moly! I can't believe she's going to be 1 in less than a month. Love all the pictures!
