11 Months

Eleven months has been one of the funnest months by far! Sarah is growing up so quickly and it just makes me sad! I continue to be amazed at the things she learns, understands and does. What an honor to be her momma!

Fun Facts:
-Clearly says "mama" when prompted but in the last couple of days she says it when she sees me...heart-melting, I tell ya!
-Also says "dada" but not sure if she recognizes Daniel as daddy...
-However, when Daniel comes home in the evenings, SJ insists on his constant attention for at least 15-20 minutes. It's so funny! She will NOT let him put her down.
-Smiles, laughs, makes high pitched noises when she wants someone's attention...mostly at strangers!
-Down to one official bottle per day...lovin' this!
-Still working on that darn sippy cup...likes the liquid in her mouth but won't always swallow...weird!
-Eats 3 official meals a day.
-Poops 4 times a day...ugh! (Gross that I put this, yes, but it's for my future reference with the next baby!)
-Crawls FAST wherever she wants to go.
-Walks by holding hands and around furniture.
-Sleeps about 12 hours at night, naps about 3 hours.
-Points at things and "talks". Love the babbling!

And, sweet Sarah was chosen on Wednesday this week to be the "prop" during BSF. Her teacher was asked to come to the large women's group and share the lesson that they do in the infant class so that the women know what goes on in those classes. SJ got to go on stage and sit in her teacher's lap and have the Bible lesson read to her in front of everyone (I'm guessing there were about 200-250 women)! And let me tell ya, this momma was so proud of her little girl. She just sat there and looked at her teacher and didn't make one peep! Oh, she was so good! Her teacher had been asked to use a doll as a prop but Miss Heather said she would have felt silly doing that. So, instead, she asked if she could use Sarah because she knew she wouldn't be afraid on stage. Way to go, Sarah!

I can't believe I missed Sarah's first acting debut! Her sweet easy going personality made her a great choice for the part. :) Super cute picture!! Looking forward to seeing one year pics.
