Miss Marilyn is ELEVEN Months Old!

Marley is Eleven Months Old!

How old are you?
Eleven months old (but wearing 18-24 month clothes!)

Do you have any nicknames?
All the same--always responding to my name...or ignoring on purpose!

What makes you happy?
Hearing Kato and Mango bark for me each morning, Wallykazam, cheese, bath time...

What makes you sad?
The word no.

What is your favorite animal?
All the animals on my Zany Zoo!

What is your favorite thing to eat?
It's a toss up between Pears and Pineapple and Pumpkin Muffins!

What is your favorite thing to do?
Open up all the cupboards and drawers at Grandma and Grandpa's house.

What is your favorite song?
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. I've been learning all the hand motions at the library so I do my twinkle twinkle sign and Mom knows to sing the song.

What is your favorite TV show?
Wallykazam. A troll, a dragon, a giant, a fairy, and a goblin. Those guys are so cute.  And each new episode has sight words, so Mom's ok with it.

What are you (starting to get) really good at?
Walking!! I started walking a few weeks ago at Grandma and Grandpa's house and each day I take more steps.  

What is your favorite movie?
No movies this month!

What is your favorite color?
Orange--Let's Go Giants!!!!!

Who is your best friend?
Daddy. He's my most favorite person right now. I'll climb through a dining room chair, over the table leg, and through another dining room chair to get to him if I have to.

What do you and mom do together?
We play in the family room.  I convinced Dad and her to move the coffee table into the den so we have more room to play!

What do you and dad do together?
We play.  Mostly he builds towers and I knock them down.

What is your favorite sport?
Competitive eating. I pretty much try and taste everything I encounter.

Where is your favorite place to go?
Kindergym, Once Grandma and I get there it takes me a little while to warm up.  But Mom says I'll love it even more once I'm a little bigger. And I'm making new friends...all the boys love me.

What is your favorite book?
Where's Spot. I love lifting up all the flaps to find that sneaky dog.

What do you think about before you fall asleep?
My magic stick just like Wally!

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A baker. I discovered Grandma's baking drawer this month. I love to pull out all the measuring cups but my absolute favorite is the tiny sifter. It's just my size! And this month I finally got to eat pumpkin AND blueberry muffins.  They are so delicious.


How are we already at 11 months?!? This month Marley went from being a baby to a little person.  We bought her first pair of shoes at Nordstrom--they even announced her name and purchase to the whole store! And she acquired her first pair of yoga pants. Next thing we know, she'll be wanting us to drop her off at the movies a block away.  This month has been the best month of all.  She loves playing games with us and is so interactive! She loves hide and seek, chase, and peek a boo.  She spends most of her time trying to outsmart us.  She's discovered how to efficiently stack the toys into the corner of her pack n play to fully access the light switch and see everything; she's figured out how to take the safety covers out of the outlets; and she's so close to reaching the door handles. She loves books and we read stories all day long.  She's got a soft spot in her heart for Wally and we usually let her watch an episode or two when she's getting really tired.  She waves and claps like a champ and is very particular about when she gives high fives.  We love her to the moon and back and can't wait to see what this month brings!

What do you want to be when you grow up?
A librarian.  Each trip to my room resulted in a visit to my teal bookshelf.  It is just the right height for me to pull every single book of the shelf so Mama could read them to me. Sometimes, I would make her read a book two or three times.  I especially love the books with animals. Almost all my books have animals in them.

This first year is flying by. Marley is already ten months old and we are loving each month more and more.  She continues to grow into her personality--our little introvert who also likes to have all the attention on her. Her sleep pattern went back to being more consistent which we all enjoyed.  She loves real food and could eat puffs for days. The bath tub is one of her favorite places to be; although she does prefer to be on the floor playing with Kato and Mango. She is so independent but always likes to check that we aren't too far away. Any moment now she is going to stop standing still and start walking. We keep trying to hold onto her a little bit tighter (which she does not enjoy) and soak up all the baby snuggles we can while she is still little! (23 pounds!)
