11 Months

My baby turned 11 months old yesterday. Who told her she could grow up? On Thanksgiving we let her feed herself for the first time really. Sure she has eaten bananas and toast on her on, but this was mashed potatoes and turkey. After a round of rock-paper-scissors Neal got the pleasure of washing the potatoes out of her hair and off her face and hands; She returned with a fresh diaper and clean clothes ready to tackle her next challenge... climbing the baby gate.

Of course climbing the gate is nothing new for her, but she did it differently this time. This of course was more for the sport then to actually get anywhere. We have learned baby gates are nothing more then an obstacle in her way keeping her from where she will eventually go. She knows she can go up the stairs if she wants to. She has actually gone over the gate and up the stairs twice. Maybe eight times she has gone over the gate (different location), onto the dog kennel, then spanned an 8" gap to climb onto the table. *sigh* When do they stop climbing?
