11 months old

I can’t let the day go by without acknowledging that my baby is 11 months old today. Where did the time go? It’s kind of surreal… on one hand I cannot believe that she hasn’t always been a member of our family. She fits so perfectly and I can’t remember a time that she wasn’t a part of us, and yet it seems like just a couple months ago that she was born.

She is an amazing baby, people at church or at my office who see her on a fairly regular basis ask if she ever fusses or cries because they have never heard her. I can attest that she does get fussy if she is tired, but she is just such an amazing little girl. She does have a temper on her though, and we call her angry as a nickname at home because if she doesn’t get what she wants she will kind of ball up her fists with her arms straight out and clench her jaw. I figure we’re in trouble with this one as she grows up! We figure nicknaming her angry probably isn’t the nicest thing to do though, but have thought of figuring out how you say angry in another language so that not everyone knew what our nickname meant :) Do you speak a foreign language and have any suggestions?

In August Ari, was 9 and Devyn was 9 months so I took their pictures together, so then last night I realized that it was the last day to get pictures of my 10 year old and 10 month as seeing as Devyn turned 11 months old today, but alas, she was tired and I got no good pictures. Oh well!

(Can you tell she's getting tired?)

Little Devyn gets cuter every time I see her picture. They do grow up fast!

It is a rare occasion when more than one individual is in a photo to capture great expressions on all those in it. The top photo in this post is exceptionally good of both of them. It is now our new favoriate photo of our granddaughters. Grandpa immediately printed copies in various sizes and we have them posted everywhere in our home and the office. Thanks for sharing.

We think the bottom picture with the baby's unhappy face is darling too.

Our babies are nearly the same age and look a lot alike! Both your daughters are stunning.

I find myself calling Laura "Little Grumpy" sometimes.

I think this age is just a little bit difficult since they can't communicate very nicely yet.

But Devyn is a cutie!
