11 months

Addy's 11 month list.
1. Addy can stand by herself for several seconds....if she doesn't realize she's doing it. I think it freaks her out a little!
2. She took her first steps two days ago! She was grinning from ear to ear when we cheered for her.
3. She can turn light switches on and off.
4. She is a great hugger!
5. Pulling bows and headbands out of her hair used to be one of her favorite things to do. Today I noticed that after pulling her bow out of her hair, she tried to put it back in!
6. Addy insists on using her spoon herself! She is very independent!

7. Her favorite snack is cheerios.
8. If she hears someone laughing, she likes to join in.
9. She loves to cuddle with her platypus.

10. She likes to "talk" on her play phone. The other day she was holding her little phone up to her ear and attempting to say "hello", it sounded more like "ahho". So cute!
11. She recently cut her first top front tooth.

Addy is a little young for trick or treating, but I thought it would be fun to make her a costume any way. My mom got her these little butterfly/fairy wings a few months ago, so I just worked around those and made her a butterfly costume. A friend told me how to make the tutu. It was so easy and only cost me about $2. I found her cute little polka dot stockings at target and then I just made her antennas out of pipe cleaner, foam balls and glitter. Oh and of course I made her little shoes. I think it turned out pretty cute! My mom got some cute pictures of her standing all by herself in her little costume, so I will have to post those later.
We also celebrated my birthday on Saturday and Matt spoiled me as usual. That guy just goes crazy! I have to say that his most thoughtful and impressive gift was a whole quart of pistachio gelato from a place we went to all the way in Park City. Oh my goodness it was soooooo good! I should have taken a picture, but I ate it already...with the help of others of course. Ok! I ate most of it myself!
