***The rest of this post (besides the 3 sentences above) was written 5 months after the end of her 11th month! Thank goodness I have some notes from my instagram photos and other tid-bits I've saved here and there!
11 months of sweetness from this girl! I dreaded her turning one and I know I cherished the last couple of months before her birthday. I don't why know why but for some reason I felt like her turning one meant that she no longer was a "baby." (She is now my rambunctious 16 month old but still very much my baby). Looking back at these pictures makes my heart melt! Love you sweet girl!

Eli liked to read, Ellie will sit for a minute or two but wants to get up pretty quickly and move on to the next activity!
Eli was chubbier!
What I've learned...
This too shall pass. Ellie is finally warming up to short car rides and doesn’t every time we put her in her car seat. (Still isn’t 100% fond of it at 16 months)
I am Extremely Blessed because...
