One month shy of "1" for Lorelei!

Well, Lorelei is now 11 months old! It is so hard to believe. A lot has happened in the last month...she has learned to say more words and her vocabulary now includes: mama, daddy, ball, dog, baxter, bay(Bailey), hi, uh-oh, yeah and she imitates "ouch" when we say it. She also can answer the question "what does a ____ say?" with either "woof" or "meow" appropriately! She has imitated my "vroom" sound when I roll a matchbox car! She has quite a bit of receptive language now too. When asked if she wants to "row her boat" she sits in front of us and outsretches her hands ready to row! She also brings us books when we ask her to! She can point out our nose when asked and responds with "yeah" when told no! Oh my. What fun she is! And she is SO close to walking. She often stands alone while holding a toy and cruises the furniture so fast! She did a 360 degree pirouette unsupported in front of Daddy the other day. She loves to play chase games and craws at warp-speed when you say "I'm gonna get you!". Lorelei also loves to pretend to feed Mommy during her meals. She is still a wonderful sleeper (12 hours at night and two 2 hour naps during the day! She is about 17.5 lbs and growing fast! She now has 8 teeth (4 top, 4 bottom) and likes to grind them which drives us nuts! Swimming is a favorite pass-time as is time spent in the evenings on a blanket on the lawn with Mommy and Daddy. The dogs are still her number one form of entertainment. Lorelei also had her first sleep-over weekend at Grandma and Grandpa Bakers for Mommy and Daddy's anniversay weekend in Tahoe. It was a success all around! All in all, Lorelei is a total HAM and a very happy, busy baby and we are tired but never tired of her! Love to you all!
