Annabelle at 11 months

Our baby is almost one year! Crazy how quickly life goes, but she is the funniest little thing, and oh so sweet:)
 The bows just keep getting bigger and bigger:)

What's New:
  • Annabelle's new favorite thing is to bark! The first thing she does when I get her out of bed in the morning is say, "Woof Woof"! She absolutely LOVES dogs... barking at them or pictures of them. I think one of her birthday gifts should be a walking, barking, stuffed dog! (Trav won't get a real one...or so he thinks;)
  • When we ask, "What does a monkey say?" She instantly says, "ooh, ooh, ahh, ahh". It's just adorable:)
  • Annabelle has figured out how to climb off the side and back of the couch. Most of the time she goes down backwards, but occasionally she frog leaps right off the front!
  • Climbing into the stroller is Annabelle's new favorite adventure (video below)
  • We have a baby Tarzan! She walks around the house beating her chest with her fists, while grunting.... absolutely hilarious! We need to get that on video... 
  • There are 3 little flowers that velcro to a decoration above her bed. She has decided she loves to pull then off, put 'em on, pull 'em off...etc. She does this again, and again, and again. The funniest thing is in the morning she will talk for a minute, then get quiet again (we think she might have gone back to sleep) but no, she is just pulling the flowers off before starting to talk again! 
    • She has THE BEST scowl face! I'm not sure she knows what she's doing but she will give people the dirtiest look when she doesn't get what she wants!
    • Fits... all babies do it. Luckily, Trav and I still find Annabelle's fits hilarious. She rolls around crying on the floor, then pauses to see how we'll respond, and then does it again. (video below) 
    •  Travis is playing BYU intramurals flag football. At his last game, Annabelle stood on the sidelines and clapped for her Daddy. So cute!
    • Annabelle has convinced Grandma Tolman she deserves ice cream, smoothies, and chocolate covered pretzels! What's life without Grandma's letting you get away with everything?! 
    • Annabelle now waves goodbye! Her wave is more of the whole arm going up and down instead of the hand-wave... it's just cute:)
    • She gives sweet,  but VERY slobbery kisses:)
    • And finally, her latest thing is attempting to make the "fish face!"

    Enjoy some recent pictures:)

      The Scowl

      Daddy's turn for lunch! Annabelle was waving her hands really big and hit the spoon! Hence, scowl #2 for getting her messy;)

       Cabela's trip! Annabelle couldn't figure out where Daddy was:) 
      Travis now has a redneck bucket list. This includes: wrestle a gator, make gator-skin cowboy boots, drive in a demolition derby, bow hunt, and ride on a swamp boat!
      He's always full of surprises;)

      Our trip to Cabela's was to show Annabelle the animals. Trav found this backpack and we thought Annabelle looked like it was her 1st day of school!

      Climbing in the Stroller... sorry the video is sideways, but still enjoy!

      We love, Love, LOVE our baby girl and can't wait to celebrate her turning One on October 24th!

      1. Oh I love it Brittany! This is hilarious! She does some pretty random things. lol. She must be so much fun to just follow around and laugh at the cute things she does. I love the face she is making while looking at the deer! lol And her in a backpack is ADORABLE! hahah It's like a tiny little person in a backpack.

      2. Thanks Kayla! She is just the funniest little girl! Everything she does makes us laugh:) I seriously imaged her going to Kindergarten and thought the backpack was just perfect! Trav said when we travel next she'll have to carry her own stuff:) haha

      3. She is funny. Sounds like ya'll are having lots of parental fun. Time does fly. Enjoy every moment. You only have TODAY once.
        Hugs, Aunt Mitzi
