Dear Cate...month 11

You, my precious darling are growing...
Time has escaped me this spring and I've neglected to tell the world just how smart (and beautiful) you are.  You my little love can not only crawl (very quickly) but you are pulling up with ease and trying to just plain stand up while playing with your toys.  You get this look on your face as if to say, "why isn't this working" when you can't.
You are cruising on things, and transferring well between objects and I have a feeling that VERY soon you're just going to start GOING...and not stop.  I'm in no rush to push you, for you are our last babe, and honestly I wish I could just put a stop to your growth right here.  
You are so much fun, and a total ham.  You love when your sister and brother play with you, and laugh heartily at their antics.  Not even Daddy can make you laugh like Maggie can!
At your 9 month check up you weighed in at 18 pounds, but you've been eating everything in sight since then so i'm curious to see what you'll tip the scales at on your birthday.
You are willing to try just about anything, and eat more regular food than your big brother. 
You're wearing 12 month, or 12-18 month clothes now, but for the length...we have to take them ALL the way in at the waist (if possible)  Sadly, some of your 3-6 month leggings make great capris on you!  Your hair is still wild and crazy, and you wouldn't be you without it!  At least it only takes a few bribes and around ten minutes now to do, instead of the two person team and twenty minutes like a few months ago.
Darling girl, we are SO excited about your upcoming birthday and can hardly believe how fast this past year has went by.  Please take your time, you don't HAVE to grow so fast.  
Love, Mommy (and Daddy too)

Happy 11 month birthday (a bit late, I know!) I can't believe you're almost one, Catie Bug! Hopefully one day I can come visit you in your NEW house (and you'll remember that I came :) )

Love you, Ging--she's adorable (and that hat too, like Kristy said!)
