She is 11 months old- Can you believe it?

I have had this blog on my "To do " list for way to long. I am glad I can take some time this morning and get caught up on what my baby girl is up to these days.

Over the past 2 months Malaika has been developing so many new skills and definately developing a personality. I don't know if I can keep up!

She is....

* Cruising like a maniac- She can run down the couch when we chase her. She LOVES to be chased. Then she chases us back. I love the high pitched squeals and laughter.

* Standing on her own and taking a few wobbly steps. Yester day she took two full steps and then fell. So we are almost there!

* She says- Mama, dada, Her most famous word is "HI" She says this whenever we come in the door or when we give her the phone. When she wants attention or picked up she says "ME ME" , She says Dora (wouldn't you know) and "OH!" every time she falls. She also sings "lala" when we play music. The other day we thought she said aunty when susanna walked in and gama when my mom walked in. So I guess we will see.

* Dora is stil her favorite.. BUT Edwin likes Barney so he has been watching that with her. We also went to the disney store to get her haloween costume (She is going to be Minnie mouse) and she grabbed the minnie mouse stuffed animal and would not let go. She was hugging it so tight and giving it kisses (of course I bought it... I am a sucka!)

*I think we have finally settled on her nickname... Of course we call her laika (Like-ah) and she is now our little doodle bug. My grandma used to call me Sarah bug so I thought doodle bug was a good fit for her. (edwin even calls her this.)

*She is playing on her own a lot more. I finally child proofed her room and set it up so she could play. She will go in there for a good 45 minutes to play with her toys. Which is nice so I can get the dishes done.

*She still only has the two bottom teeth. I have had to many sleepless nights for her to only have 2 teeth! I think I see a little white on the top gum but she won't let me near her gums to look.

* She is a dancing machine.. whenever she hears music she rocks back and forth, rolls her hips and taps her foot. she also claps when she likes something or when she hears other people clap.
*She takes the phone and puts it to her ear and says "Hi"
*When we tell her no she shakes her head no.
* When my friend nicole weighed her a couple weeks ago she was 22 lbs and 30 inches long. She is wearing 12-24 month clothes and I just went up to size 5 diapers.

* She is pretty much eating anything we give her. She will not eat baby food AT ALL so I have to be alittle creative on feeding her vegetables. The other night she had chicken breast (cut into chunks) stuffing and cauliflower (boiled) It is fun to watch her eat what we are eating. She loves yogurt and her new favorite thing is cucumbers, she will eat them until they are gone.. and then cry for more.

* We are having her first birthday at chucky cheese on November 8th! I am excited about it.

She is little miss personality that is for sure... I am enjoying every minute of it! I will try to get better with this blog so stay tuned for more!

Ok, so I KNOW that I already commented on your Myspace, but I have to comment here, too. I'm so bummed that I'm missing out on all this baby wonderfulness, BUT, I AM applying to Portland State for next fall, so hopefully, maybe, I will NOT have to miss out on her toddlerhood or little-girlhood. She's TOO CUTE!

Oh My Goodness!!! We bought Madelyn the same Minnie Mouse. It's sitting in her crib waiting for her to come! Hopefully soon! Love the blog, because of course, I love that little girl! She's precious! Hope all continues to go well!

Well, of course, I think that that is a FANTASTIC name. Maybe "Lesa" is not so different from "Jesus." ;) In Hebrew, "Lisa" means "Oath of God." You're not losing either way! How is it pronounced? And I will PRAY for you and your nursing school apps!!! A couple more years and you'll be done?
