ELEVEN

I don't want to say it...
but I must.

My baby girls are ELEVEN months old!

I could sit and whine about how I don't want them to be ELEVEN months old already.
but I won't.

Instead I'll tell you all about my ELEVEN month girls
and share these ADORABLE pictures!

  1. Your girls are beautiful! As a mom to a 10 month old boy, I know 1 is coming soon! I mostly love to hear about what your girls say. My son is deaf so he doesn't say anything and I love to think about where he should be and what he will be saying after his surgery! Brittany, I don't know how you got to be such a blogging queen, but you are fabulous and I enjoy reading about your family.

    God bless,
    Shelley

  12. So sweet! Did I say that last time?
    Well, they are!

  13. They are so amazing. I waffle back and forth on whether I would want twins or not. :) Of course, every time I visit here, I want a set! :) My baby is 11 months also, but not for much longer. He will turn 1 on the 12th (only a week away)! I'm glad I'm not the only one with a nurser who still wakes up 1 or 2 (or 3) time during the night at 11 months. I thought something was wrong. I guess 'cause this is the first time. My other babies were weaned long before now, with the exception of my first 3, but that's a long story. :) The ones that weaned early were because I was expecting the next one. Now I'm getting a long break again.

  14. Oh my you have the most beautiful little girlies....they are SO cute, by the pictures, they look like they light up the room when they smile. Enjoy them, my baby girl is 8 years and it goes by SO fast!

  15. Gosh they are cute. Ok, please tell me your secrets of sleep. My daughter is almost 11 months and takes 1 30 minute nap a day and doesn't sleep well at night either. Any tips??

    ReplyDelete
  16. Your girls are SO gorgeous! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. They are precious beyond words! I'd love to see my 11 1/2 month old little man sandwiched between your cuties! :) One is coming soon for both of us... Sniff. Sniff.

  18. Oh they are just getting more adorable each day......are they still very identical?? I'm only asking because I'm a mere few months behind you & ours seem harder to tell apart the older they are getting. What do you think??

    Susan :):)

  19. Happy 11 months girls, you are beautiful.

    My baby is 15 months old and I'm with you, I don't want to say it, but I will celebrate it! Thank God for His precious gift of children.

  20. I can't belive it was a year ago that I was making Vance and Gavin's beds upstairs and heard the phone ring and McSarah scream! I ran down worried, but the grin on her and Sarah L's face said it all!!!
    So sad that I"ll miss their birthdays...I'll bake them mini-cakes when you come home! :-)

  21. I just found your blog. It's lovely. I have two toddlers - a 15 month old and a 2 1/2 year old. It all goes by too quickly.

  22. They are just too adorable for words! I love your blog!

  23. They speak so much! My boys had a couple of words in their vocabulary at that age, but my girlie is 9 months old and doesn't even babble. Only coos. So she'll be my baby for longer. ;)

    Your girlies got so big. They are taking on a toddler look already. The baby faces are melting away. :)

  24. They are just too sweet! I love their curls and grins and sweet cheeks! My baby turns one on Sunday. I am so sad. I don't like this growing up bit at all. It's time for another! lol
