Grow Up. Stay Little.

“I ate how many blueberries?”

Tomorrow Lillienne will be eleven months old. In the past few weeks she has been standing up on her own and taking a few hesitant first steps. She sprouted her ninth tooth, and has mastered the art of waving hello and goodbye, clapping, shaking her head “no” and is addicted to multi grain cheerios. She loves being read to, and my days consist of Green Eggs and Ham, There’s a Wocket in my Pocket and the Little Critter books.
I am having a hard time dealing with the fact next month we will be celebrating her first birthday, although watching her grow and learn and play is the best thing in life. Were not renting a pony or a clown or having a theme, but we’re going to throw a come and go birthday bash for her….since not all family members can play nice together. It’s heartbreaking for me to think of how fast she is growing up, and how her babyness disappears just a little bit more everyday.
