What a little booger!!

You'll never guess what Zaylee did to me last night! One clue....teeth! Okay, so she's had her two little teeth for about a month now and she's a biter! She always will come up and bite my leg, my arm, my shoulder, and even my nose. Well, last night before bedtime, she tried a new place to bite. I won't go into details, but I bet you can guess (hint: I am still nursing at nighttimes). OUCH!! So, of course, I chastised her and because it was WAY past her bedtime at that point (we had had a busy night with meetings and babysitting) she just freaked out and started screaming and then, yep you guessed it, bit me again!! Leaving teeth marks both times!! She was going for the third time when I decided that was way enough! She ended up with a bottle before bed and seemed fine with that. This may have been her last straw....she was being weaned anyway, but she may have just finished it for herself!!

As for the picture, Zaylee has learned the "all gone" pose. She doesn't say anything beside "OOHH" when things are gone but she has the arm motion down great! It's so funny to watch. It's times like these that make you forgive for the times above. (The picture is not the best--she can do it a lot cuter--but its the best I could get her to do on demand in the morning when really all she wanted to do was get down to play.)

Zaylee is 11 months!!

Oh my goodness how time flies!! I can't believe that this time last year I only had one month to go. Man was my belly sticking out then! (Unfortunately, I still have a little bit of that chubb left, URGH!!) This month has been busy for Zaylee. She got her first 2 teeth, learned how to walk, figured out how to stand up by herself in the middle of the room (without something to help her), went geocaching for the first time, and is finally down to waking up only once and sometimes twice a night! (I really wish that I could add potty-trained at this point but I know that that is a LONG shot--and no, I haven't been trying to, I am just sick of the diapers already!) =)

Here's a couple of pictures of her today to stick with tradition of a monthly photo. I didn't really get any good shots but here is a couple that I took. The first one is by the ivy and lilac trees in our backyard and the second is her riding in our neighbors barbie car. She loved being pushed around and getting to steer the car herself--it didn't work very well, but she sured tried!

She's a walker!

After a month of practicing, she finally getting it down pretty darn good. Check it out for yourself.

Going down the slide

Zaylee has liked going down the slide since she first went at Easter but we got this video a few weeks ago that I thought I'd share.

Zaylee the mischievous monkey

Zaylee loves climbing into things, onto things, and even under things when she can. She's a handful!! =) Just look at the face! The last pic is just cuz it's cute!

I finally did it! I cut my hair! I was able to cut enough off to donate to locks of love and because my hair is so thick I was able to do two strands to donate. Pretty cool huh! =) So I didn't take any before pictures but here is the after (as well as a picture to show how much I cut off).
