So much to catch up on

Life has been pretty busy these days.  So much so that I feel like I just haven't been able to keep up with all that I want to post on the blog.  But many things are in the works.  With Naomi's 1 year birthday close on the horizon, I have a few things planned that I am excited to share.  

To quickly share some of the happenings from the past month, Naomi has pretty much become a little kid right before our eyes.  Granted she's not even eleven months yet, but she definitely expresses herself the way an older kid would, full of confidence and ready to explore every nook and corner where ever we are.  She's learned how to use the potty, albeit not to the point of ridding away with diapers, but she definitely knows what it's for.  She is on the brink of walking!  She stands strong on her own, and if encouraged, can form about 3 steps on her own before she plops down or just stands put.  I really hope the day that she plans on taking that first walk, that I am at the ready with the camera :).  She's grown quite the appetite and has graduated to much more hearty meals.  Looks like the days of homemade purees are in the past.  Teething has been a challenge, but both her top two and bottom two are now showing, along with a couple others.  To be honest it's all been so overwhelming how quickly things are developing with her, but in the most amazing and wonderful of ways.  Our baby Naomi is becoming her own with each passing day.  What an amazing little soul we have here.
