I cannot believe I am sitting here writing that our baby girl Mariann is almost a year old already! These past 11 months have been such a joy with her in our home. The boys really love playing with her, carrying her, tending to her needs, and being her protector. She started walking over a week ago now and is already trying to run and keep up with the boys. Daniel(3) isn't so sure about her being mobile and becoming a toddler like him. He loves to throw things @ her play with her. Being that he is 3 years old and about 26-27 lbs, and she is 11 months and 22 lbs I am thinking he feels even more threatened of being replaced as "The Baby."
She now has her two bottom front teeth, along with her front top tooth coming in and 2 more on top. Making a grand total of 5 teeth. More than any of our other babies had @ 11 months. We think we have heard her say "wow" and "Yeah", but just a few times. I am sure pretty soon she will be chattering away with the best of them as in a house with this many she will have to compete over many voices : )
Below are some recent pictures of our precious Mariann, now 11 months old!
