"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

Lauren 11 Months

Lauren turned 11 months on August 21. I can not believe this is the final month of her babyhood. I believe that toddlerhood officially starts at one year. My heart is breaking a little as I think about it. Here are a few things I should take note of:

-She is finally doing a real crawl. No more army crawling on her elbows! Now she is unstoppable.

-She pulls herself up on everything and I need to start keeping our bar stools put away because they will topple over on her. Her favorite thing to pull herself up on is my leg.

-She has learned how to wave and can say "bye bye bye" (a little 'N Sync if you ask me!)

-She likes to put the phone to her ear and say "hi".

-Her two bottom teeth finally popped through!

-The girl still loves the boob, but will gladly drink from a bottle or sippy cup as well. She still nurses at night and sometimes during the day. I plan on letting her do that for a while longer, even past 12 months old.

-Lauren is the happiest and most cheerful baby! Her personality continues to come through and we just love it!

Wow, almost a year old!

Mathieu still nurses on demand but has been sleeping in his crib for the past two months. I can finally get a little more sleep...just in time to get pregnant again, lol. Are you still hoping for another sweet baby soon?

It's such a milestone huh? She is adorable, and how fun to visit TX. I want to go back to show Dave where I spent half my life someday! Are you back? We still need to get together!;)

Wow, it took me about 8 years to read all of your posts. You have been BUSY! And hey, ain't nothin' wrong with a little 'NSync. They were my fav when I was 19! So I have a few things to say:

-I think Lauren looks just like Hailey in these pictures. Yes? No?
-I know you said you haven't lost weight but you look like it in the picture with all the girls. So good for you!
-And I absolutey ADORE the wagon evolution photos. Great idea. I love that kind of stuff!
Glad you're having so much fun. Are you home yet? It seems like you've been gone forever!
