eleven months


This is late. I'm sorry. If you could comprehend the craziness that has defined the last couple of weeks, you'd understand. But let's move on. :)

Being 11 (+) months means that my next letter will be your ONE YEAR letter. That's just impossible. Well, maybe it's not entirely impossible. I mean, sometimes it feels like FOREVER since you entered this world and turned our house upside down with sleepless nights and everything else that comes with a newborn. But on the other hand, it feels like just yesterday that we finally got to meet you and hold you and know that our family would never be the same.

So, you went from taking a few steps at a time to practically running around the house. Nothing is safe from you now! I can hardly turn around without noticing that you're halfway down the hallway, heading for the bathroom. Ah, yes. The bathroom. Pretty much your favorite room in the house. I mean, where else can you unroll the toilet paper (and eat it), dig through the garbage, empty the tub toys, and rifle through the cleaning products under the sink? Seriously, it's no wonder that door stays closed most of the day. And the toilet paper is usually on the counter instead of where it belongs. And the garbage is on the counter. Lovely. :)

The cutest thing you're doing right now (besides walking all over the darn house) is waving bye-bye. It's accompanied by "da da," which means, "bye bye." (Never mind what your daddy thinks it means). I'm officially calling "da da" (bye bye) your second word, after "Kkkk" for kitty. :) A recent third is "Hi," which has just made its debut in the last few days. And you have a word for Jack, but I haven't quite pinned it down yet. You're usually calling him from another room. It's pretty cute! You also sing--usually in the car. It cracks Jack up, which cracks ME up, and makes the car ride quite enjoyable.

I feel like I should leave this letter short and sweet to make sure I have lots of things to say in your 1-year letter, which will be here before we know it. I love you, babe. See you in the morning. :)
