eleven months!

our baby girl is actually going to be one year old next week! oh my!

i thought if i held this post off, then maybe it would give me a little longer!

her pictures were a tad difficult to capture this month.

the girl does not stop moving!!

i would get her in the chair, give her a cheerio, grab my camera..

and she would already be climbing out of the chair, on the floor, and outta the room.

camera down.

run get her.

put her back in chair.

repeat x 50ish pictures!

which apparently she thought was a hilarious game.

and i'm no newbie to this.

i have a serious system down.

i waste no time.

she just wastes less time than me!

{mischief anyone!?}

she is walking everywhere! crawling is no more.

she took her first steps right at 10 months, but didn't really take off full force until right at 11 months.

everyone told me i would dread the day she took off, and i will say, i think i actually like it better than crawling. she's still not quite as fast (that will change soon.)

and her clothes and toes of shoes are not completely filthy and worn out every day!

so yeah, walking agrees with us. for now.

that's the only big change this month.

but more than that, i need to get off the computer and work on her birthday invitations that should be mailed, oh, tomorrow!

so we're outta here!

bring on summer!

i have been soo excited for summer this year!

last year jillian was just a tiny baby, and even though we took her to the beach, it still kinda hindered what all we could do.

well, this year she is already loving all things summer!

i've been telling kyle since she was born, i can't wait until she is big enough to play in the water sprinklers!

we played in the sprinklers hours every day of summer when we were little! i think my parents decided they may actually save on the water bill if they put in a pool! so we got one of those later!
{barely getting sprinkled at this point, but having a blast! i love her face!}

{getting a little braver}

{all in! she made this face, every time it sprayed her in the face, but she still liked it}

i love watching her have this much fun!

after we went inside, she carried her swim suit around with her. i think she likes it!

it's gonna be a good summer.

we have started working on getting our house ready to sell. {oh yeah, we bought a house, and are moving, by the way}.

so jillian helped with the pantry.

is that not the most mischievous face!?

making her getaway!

{the picture quality is quite terrible, but it was dark and i had to catch her quick!}

pizza pizza!!

we had pizza the other night, and decided to scrape the cheese off, and let have jillian have a bite. she ended up eating a whole piece of pizza!

and she enjoyed it quite a bit.

she'll fit in our family nicely.

i think she likes it.

like, a lot!
