11 MONTHS AGO

So sad, this is the very last month post for Miss Stella. She is almost a year, for real! Stella is crawling like a professional these days which makes photo shoots with Mom almost impossible. Stella is ever the performer and waves at almost everyone now. When we go to the grocery store it is her time to shine, waving and smiling at everyone we pass. Most people will wave back, but it doesn't phase her when she is ignored...she continues to wave and smile until she sees someone new.

Stella also performs for her parents and will do a trick after hearing a key word:

GIVE KISSES or KISS: Stella will smack her two lips together to make a kissing sound. The first time she did this was after I kissed her "good night" in her crib, and I heard a kiss back. CUTEST SOUND EVER!

BLOW: We are working on her blowing skills so she can blow out her birthday candle. She makes a blowing sound when asked.

SHAKE IT: When she hears this she wiggles her hips and belly and essentially SHAKES IT! It never gets old!

She is usually pretty proud of herself after the tricks and she claps and smiles. We even have a clapping session sometimes during book time after she turns a page. It is all about the clapping at our house. (Well, also the waving. We wave so much that Brent even waved at church once when we were asked to sustain someone.)

Oh Stella, what in the world would we do without you?!


AND SHE'S OFF!

OK, I WILL LOOK AT YOU FOR A SECOND...

TIMES UP!

LOVE ME ANYWAY?
