So, Scarlett is ELEVEN months old today! Eeek! Where has the time gone? I so sound like an old lady, but it really seems like she was just born and the fact that she'll be a year makes her seem so old, even though she's still my baby. In the past month, Scarlett has started to do lots of new, funny things. She can stand (!), still not crawling, but instead, she scoots around everywhere. She hands you things, waits for you to say, "thank you," and then expects them back. She claps and has even just started waving hello and goodbye in the last few days! She was standing up against a table, holding something in her left hand. After trying to reach for it, but not being able to get a toy, she attempted to take a step closer, but then decided to go with the easier way and drop whatever was in her left hand and pick up the new toy. Still, I feel like that's progress!!! Hopefully, she'll be walking soon-ish!
We also went to go see Santa. We couldn't schedule it for a time that Tyler and Alyssa could both go, so this time it was just the 3 of us Smiths! Tomorrow, Molly and Alyssa will be going with Scarlett and I and I'm hoping that it'll be more fun. Alyssa gets the Santa thing, so she'll be more excited than Scarlett...
|Terrified. Poor baby!|
|Get. me. out of here!|
|Now she's trying to get a good look at him.|
