Happy 11th Monthday!

Today is Lorelai's 11th monthday. I'll spare you all the "oohs and aahs" about her successes this month. But, she's learned a lot and is growing so fast! Here are a couple pictures from the last four weeks.

Here's when we heard her crying in the morning when she woke up. She had learned how to pull herself up, but couldn't figure out how to get back down. Doesn't she look like she got caught, but isn't sure if she's in trouble? ha ha!We had visitors this month, too. The Macs came in from Dallas. Ranger, Skinny Mama and Sisa were so much fun! Lorelai loved them! I've heard about them for the past four years, but have never had the pleasure of meeting them. They are WONDERFUL!!!Lorelai met Santa. I'm not sure she was a fan.It was a little better when she couldn't see him.And, finally....just a white wife-beater and a pair of bermuda shorts and she'd be ready to mow the lawn like the old guy next door! Loving this look! And yes, Lorelai is already nearly THREE FEET TALL and weighs just over 32 pounds.

HAPPY 11TH MONTHDAY, LORELAI!!!!

Your kid gets cuter every day, i'm so jealous. Thanks for the bday card - you were one of two non-relatives that remembered. You're the best!

She is so big! My neice is also a rather, over achieving grower. She is 3 and wearing clothes her sister wore in kindergarten. She is so tall and big that people look kind of funny sometimes b/c she seems to be acting so...immature. Well hello? She's little still!
She has the same issue as Lorelai and that is BABY HEAD. Their body says "I'm a big kid." but their hair says, "I'm a baby." She is so cute and I really like the Santa picture.

OK, I'm off to do the meme now.

Oh my gosh- can you believe the big 1 is only a month away?!? People always say kids grow up too fast, but then you have one and find out they really do!! The new pics are adorable!

Great pictures and Happy Monthday, Lorelai!

Does she always cry when Roger hold her?

The pic of her in Santa's chair is awesome... definitely a keeper for when she gets older.

Looking forward to seeing you guys in like 3 weeks!

Hey- I just had to post because the Santa pics are both AWESOME! That's great. Lorelai is so pretty... and has such great facial expressions.

I was trying to resist it, but I can't- she is one big girl :) Its nice to have a solid sized child though. Mine was always on the big side until about age 2. And now, I am almost embarrassed to say that she and Lorelai are just about the same size, it seems.

Happy 11th Monthday Lorelai!! That's the cutest picture with Santa. Definitely one to save and show her future boyfriends. :-)

Love,love,love all the pics. Jonah makes that exact same expression as the one of her in her crib -- so FUNNY. The Santa ones are awesome. I'd be tempted to frame the one where Santa is hiding behind the chair....it's so unique. Hugs to the Huses from J, J and J Zimmer.

That is hilarious. I'm assuming that Peyton won't be afraid of Santa since he's her grandfather! I love the pics. Too cute.
