Stafford's 11 Month Update

Dear Stafford,

I can hardly believe you are 11 months old!!  We just went to see our friend's new baby and as I held her I tried to imagine what it was like when you were that small.  It was hard.  It is amazing how much you have grown and changed in one short year.

Your biggest news this month is you finally have 2 teeth!!  They are growing in slowly and you do not like to show them to anyone!  You haven't been too fussy with them and so far it hasn't interrupted your sleeping at night.  I can't wait to see what you look like with a toothful grin!

You are still crawling around like a madman.  You want to go up the stairs all day long.  Mama has to block off the kitchen so you can't eat dog food and the stairs so you don't go up!  Daddy has been trying to teach you how to go down the stairs but so far you still go headfirst.  You also try to go headfirst off the bed, couch or any raised area!

You got your first kiss this month from your girlfriend Hannah.  She's almost a year older than you are and she loves you already!!  You also had an awesome time visiting with Daddy's family in Tennessee.  You got to stay with Mimi & Grandad and play with your cousins, aunts and uncles for a week.  You also go to visit with your great-grandpa.

It has been fun to watch your personality come out more and more.  You are still such a lover!  You cuddle and hug on Mama all day long.  You are still great about going to other people though and have fun in the nursery at church.  You show your sweet dimple to everyone.

The next time I update you'll have traveled through 11 states to reach our new home!  You'll celebrate your first birthday in a new state!

We love you so very much.  We are so honored to be your parents.  We pray everyday that you will follow Jesus and that we will be good parents to you!  We can't wait to see what you have in store for us!!

Love,
Daddy & Mama

Great questions! :) I'll be missing Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Alaska, Hawaii, Iowa, Oregon, Wisconsin and Michigan.

I've technically been in the airport in Michigan but I don't count that. And depending on how we drive we might hit Iowa, Nebraska or Wisconsin :)
