11 MONTHS

Chandler your eleven months old. For me this has happened all too fast, but you're loving it. You took your first step on September 2. The first step for me is the first mark independence in your life. As much as I want you to rely on me for everything, you have to become independent so you can become dependent on God. I know this process all to well, I have gone through it three times before you and the end result is fabulous, but it's the baby I feel like I am losing.

Here is a song that I pray will always bring me back to the moments you would lay in my arms and lay your head on my shoulder....

JJ Heller, When I am with you

Listen to the video HERE.........BE PREPARED TO CRY

When I hold you
In my arms, love
Somethin' changes
It's the strangest feeling

The things that
Use to matter
They don't matter
To me

When I see you
And you're smilin'
How my heart aches
So full it is about to break

You make me believe in love

I could never count all the ways
That you change me, baby
Every day the sky is a deeper shade of blue
When I'm with you

When I hear you
And you're cryin'
It resonates, dear
In a place I didn't know was there

You make me believe in love

I could never count all the ways
That you change me, baby
Every day the sky is a deeper shade of blue
When I'm with you

Beautiful, baby
You're sweeter than strawberry pie
Just like the morning
Your smile brings the sun that shines

I could never count all the ways
That you change me, baby
Every day the sky is a deeper shade of blue
When I'm with you

I could never count all the ways
That you change me, baby
Every day the sky is a deeper shade of blue
When I'm with you

Chandler, I love being with you and holding you on my hip. You have no idea how YOU have changed me. You are the happiest baby ever! You love when people are laughing around you, you join in and don't stop. You smile pretty much all the time and you wave to everyone as if they have been in your life forever. My prayer is that you will always be happy and treat everyone that comes along your path as if you have known them for years.
You also talk more and sing more. You will sing Elmos World with us and a If all of the Raindrops. You can say, momma, dadda, no, cracker, night night, a few other things if I ask you to say them.

You have 7 teeth, almost 8. Your teeth have not been fun! You feel a lot of pain and you cry a lot. You still wake up in the night, but with your teeth it's worse. Your daddy is their hero in that area because he gets up with you most of the time.

You weigh 24 pounds and you wear size 12-18 months clothes size 4 shoes and 4 diaper.

Next month you're going to be one. This has been the best year, I had you and completed my family. So many blessings right there.

I love you!
Mom
