Dear Willow, (11 Months)

Dear Willow,

This post is already a week late. We went to Saskatoon this past weekend to celebrate Father's Day and your Great Grandfathers Birthday. You were tossed around all weekend and loved every single minute of it.

We have been loving the warmer weather and the moment you wake from your naps we go outside to explore. We don't have grass here at the new house yet so we go into town and play at the beach or visit the horses.

At eleven months...

- You are still wearing size 3 diapers

- You wear mostly 12 month clothing but still some 6-12months and 12-18months

- Your shoe size is 3-4

- You are down to nursing twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening.

- You eat EVERYTHING. And by everything I mean EVERYTHING. You just love food. You get so mad when I don't feed you fast enough. Cheerios are hands down your favorite food

- You are very emotional. You get very upset when things don't go your way. Breakdowns are quite common when you are tired or hungry.

- Your little red uni-brow hasn't faded at all. It still goes bright red when you are tired or angry.

- You are a very funny baby. You smile all of the time and squeal with excitement. Your funny faces are out of this world!

- You wave and point at everything/everybody. Your waves and points are a little backwards which makes it that much more cuter.

- You love to clap your hands

- You are into everything. I can't imagine what it will be like when you are walking

- You are getting better at this whole sleeping thing. Except if we stay at someone elses home. You are up all night long, you just don't want to miss out on any action!

- You nap twice a day. A short one in the morning and a long one in the afternoon

- You have two teeth on the top and two on the bottom. They are so cute! You like the feel of them and grind them often which makes us a little nutty.

- You pull yourself up on everything. Last month you were a little wobbly but this month you are an old pro.

- You pooped in the tub twice in one week!! Thanks for not doing it when mama was bathing you. You did it for Grandma Sue and Dada. 

- Your toys don't excite you as much anymore. You would rather play with the dog dishes, tupperware, dirt, bugs, or the pets.

- You just started dancing.

Everytime we think our love for you couldn't be stronger it grows & grows & grows. You make everybody you meets heart so full. You are very loved.

Typical crazy Willow face

We love you to the moon & back Willow Rae xoxoxo


  1. Oh I love her crazy faces:) Now I know I don't really know you two but going off pics I'd have to say she looks like her daddy, do you get that a lot?

    1. I think she looks a lot like her dad! Everyone said she looked exactly like Jon when she was a newborn. Now it's pretty mixed. She gets her crazy faces from me though haha


Yessss, I love comments! Thank You xo
