So I won't forget, Karsyn at 11 mos.

So in a couple of weeks, my baby will be 1.  I have been a little sad about it, just because she is my last one.  So I just want to document a few things that I love about my baby.  She loves to eat, she will eat anything and gets so excited at meal times.  After she eats, her little tummy sticks out like a little pot belly over her diaper.  Her favorite food is cheese.  She also loves fruit, meats, and is not fond of bread or veggies.  

I painted the girls toenails and fingernails and I did Karsyn's.  She did not like it and cried the whole time.  But, it turned out pretty darn cute, so I am sure I will be doing that again soon!

 She loves drinking out of her big girl cup.  Honestly I could probably just take away her bottle and she would be just fine.  But regular milk stops her up, so we still have her on some formula.
 This baby is back to sleeping good for me.  She is sleeping all night, praise God!  She will often have 2 or 3 naps a day depending on what we are doing.  I put her to bed around 7 or 8.  This picture was from after ladies bible class, she was worn out and she fell asleep on the floor with her bottle.
 This little girl has some curls in her head and definitely got my cowlick in front.  So her hair is a little funky right now.  I often put it in a tiny pony tail and this is a picture of her with her first pigtails.  Pretty cute.
The girl is still not walking.  She can do it, she just choose to crawl.  She loves to crawl very fast and make her little hands smack the floor.  It is funny.  She will take a couple of steps if we coax her, but she is really uninterested.  One of her favorite things to do is dance to whatever music is going on, she especially loves to hear her daddy play guitar.  She listens and shakes her little booty side to side.  It is hilarious.
I love this girl.  She reminds me so much of Cooper.  She doesn't seem to have quite the adventurous spirit of Clayton, so that is comforting.  She has great fine motor skills already, which Cooper did too, and he was slow to walk as well.  She has a happy personality, and does well in our busy schedule.  She loves, loves, loves her daddy, more than any of the other kid did at that age.  She has learned to say Bella (dahlah), and all done (ahh da).  It is so cute.  I love this baby girl.  Seeing her little smile when I get done with work just makes my day.  She is so tender hearted, Brian and I just have to say "No, No Karsyn." and she is in tears. She doesn't seem to have much of a stubborn spirit, yet, but I am not holding my breath.

God is so good to have given us this precious girl.  A year ago, I remember I was questioning God's wisdom in giving us another girl, but now I have no doubts that this child was exactly the one to make our family just right.  May God give me the wisdom to raise her in the way that is just right for her to become a valuable servant of His.
