Anyways. Ellie is 11 months old today. She is so stinking smart. Learns new things everyday. She had one rough week of sleep the past month but still sleeps great. In fact, I think the rough week of sleep was from a tooth, but it's so hard to tell with her as she really shows no other signs other than I can visibly see a tooth surfacing. She loves to play. She is really enjoying books more and more. Getting chased around the house is such great fun for her. Playing "Where's Ellie?" behind blankets and shower curtains brings her much laughter as well.
She is pretty sneaky about finding things on the floor, but when I catch her she either hands it to me like "Here mom I was getting this for you" or puts it in her mouth real quick. Makes me laugh every time. I let her move around the house as she wants, but I'm never far behind getting her out of a room or removing things from her hand. The other day she made it down the hall into the back bedroom where the smoke detector was on the ground (needed a battery) but she was touching it and I walked in and it startled her. She did that "quick hide it" move you do when you know you aren't supposed to be doing something. That must be an innate reaction because it's not like she learned that from anywhere.
I'm loving her eyes a lot lately.
This is her screeching in excitement! She's loud too.
With everything going on in her mouth, sticking her tongue out is something new too.
Does it resemble anyone to you?
