Kayla is 11 Months Old!

My baby girl is 11 months old!  One more month and she will be ONE!  Kayla amazes me just like her big sisters Rachel and Haley and I just love her beyond words.

At eleven months, Kayla weighs 17 lbs, 10 oz.  She has 2 teeth, but finally 4 upper teeth are slowly making their way out.  Poor girl!  That's a lot of teeth at one time.  Kayla is eating baby foods well though I'm looking forward to her getting more teeth so she can eat more table foods.  We have tried the sippy cup with her, but she doesn't have the hang of it just yet.  She loves to chew on the spout and chew on just about anything.  She also likes to pick stuff off the floor and put it in her mouth.  I don't like it and I have to watch her carefully, but most of the time she is finding little morsels of food that Rachel and Haley have dropped on the kitchen floor.  

Kayla is still sleeping well at night though it has been somewhat harder to get her to sleep.  She is having some separation anxiety and wants her mommy.  She is a mommy's girl for sure!  I just love how she gets so excited when she sees me and snuggles into me when I hold her.  It melts my heart!

Kayla and I

Kayla has made a lot of progress this past month.  She started crawling 100% of the time on her hands and knees soon after she turned 10 months.  Kayla is definitely getting into more things and it will only get worse because she is so close to walking!  She is walking along the furniture and walking using her walker toys.  On November 6, she took one small step on her own without holding on to anything.  Since then she has taken 2 small steps on her own.  She most likely will be walking by her 1st birthday! 

My little Texas girl!

Kayla also started clapping her hands on November 6.  She is vocal and "talks" a lot.  She says "ma ma", "da da" and lots of other sounds.  Kayla is going to be a talker. 

Like I have said before, she loves her sisters!  Kayla will come up to Rachel and/or Haley and will climb/crawl on them to play.  Kayla thinks its the funnest thing and just laughs as she does it.  She has so much fun with them.  Rachel and Haley are good sports about it.  They are great big sisters!



  1. Beautiful pictures! She is so precious!

  2. That is a beautiful picture of you with Kayla. Good job staying in the picture! (That post resonated with me, as there are very few pictures of me with my son.) I also love, love the picture with her looking at the horse! How sweet.

  3. That last shot is a framer for sure!

  4. What a lovely child she is - and what awesome pictures!! I agree - that last shot in particular should be framed!

  5. What a doll! I can't believe she is almost 1! All the pictures are beautiful, but the one with the horse is simply gorgeous. Congratulations!

  6. Great photos, and doesn't she look so cute - the purple outfit it lovely - can you believe she is nearly ONE ! xx
