Analiese 11 Months

How can she be this old already? I seriously don't get it. 
This month she was the tornado. She is into everything, and she makes messes faster than I can clean them up. She takes out all the washcloths and bibs from the bottom drawer several times a day, she pulls them all out, and then crawls away. I guess she just likes them on the floor or something. She will then move to the DVD case and take down all the DVD's and Xbox games and then move onto her toy bins and pull everything out of that. Silly girl. 

She loves books and has for a couple months, but this month she got into photo books. I had some out and she would look at them for so long, it was wonderful... Until she started ripping them. So they had to go away and nothing occupied her attention as long as those things did. So I had Grandma Anita make Analiese her very own scrapbook for her birthday. The book has pictures of pretty much everyone on my side of the family, and Jesus and the temple. She has had it for a couple days now and absolutely loves it. Yesterday she sat for a blissful 15 minutes on my lap looking at the book with me. She also loves animal books. We have a few of our own, but she likes variety so we have to go to the library and get ones with new animals sometimes. She will look at those for quite a while. She especially loves the pictures of the 'kitties.'

In the last post I spoke of her love of Grandma Keri's puppies, so for her birthday, Grandma Keri got her a 'FUR Real Puppy' it barks and spins and walks towards her and she laughs and laughs. But for some reason, she knocks the puppy down whenever it gets close to her, she will also hug it and then sit on it. I don't understand it, and I take it away if she gets to rough with it so it doesn't break, but she does love that little puppy. She wouldn't look at any of her other gifts she got at her party after she got that puppy.
We had her 1st birthday party this month. Her birthday is still not for a week, but my family was in town from New Mexico for Thanksgiving so we had it early so they could come. I will do a post on the party really soon. 
Analiese had her first Thanksgiving, she seemed to like the holiday. She ate some turkey, but mostly wanted rolls. That girl loves herself some bread. We went and ate at Grandma Keri's house first and then went to my family's thanksgiving at Lori and Fred's house. Some of the kids were playing Just Dance 4 so I danced a couple songs with her. She liked playing with my cousin's 2 year old, Solana, and also tried her hand at some stairs with me sitting behind her the whole time. She was good at climbing those stairs, but not so good at realizing that falling is very easy. 
Analiese still has never really fallen off of anything. So she just like tries to leap off stuff. She tries to just go headfirst off the couch so I try and show her how to get off normally, but since she hasn't hurt herself doing it yet she doesn't see the need to get off normally. 

She really enjoys playing with other kids, she likes to play with her Uncle Lincoln who is just a little bit younger than her, they have fun together, but Analiese is a little bit of a bully, she likes to hit him sometimes. She also plays with her friend Riley quite a bit, he is older than her, so he can hold his own, except when she tries to pull to a stand using him as her furniture, and they both fall over. 
She also really knows the word 'No' She can't say it yet, but when I tell her 'NO!' she starts to shake her head at me. Which is really funny and irritating at the same time. But she is starting to stop what she is doing about half of the time, so she is definitely starting to know what 'no' means. 
She loves to talk on the phone. I will say 'Ring Ring, Hello' into the phone and then hand it to her, then she holds it to her hear and says 'ello' or 'hi' into it. She does it with any cell phone, and some other toys, like her hair brush sometimes. 
She is getting so good at pointing. Jeremy taught her how to point by playing games on his phone, and now she points at everything, she doesn't always point at stuff she wants, its kind of just everything now, but its still a new skill. But she can point to play the phone games and press buttons on all of her toys, so she has been doing that a lot this week. 
She loves to clap, she will do pat-a-cake when you sing the song and when you say 'Yay!' to her she will start to clap a lot, and smile huge, because I usually tell her Yay and clap when she has accomplished something and its like telling her god job, so anytime you do that now, she thinks she is so special.

One of her favorite things to do is play ball. She LOVES ball. She will toss it around the house and run after it for a long time, but she loves it even more when we play with her. She is like a little puppy playing fetch. In fact the other day she was crawling around with a toy bath turtle in her mouth with no hands, and she really seemed like a puppy then. 

I can't believe that this month is over, November went by too fast. And now I pretty much have a one year old who is eating Cheerios and Goldfish crackers and looking at books. 

{{ I want to post videos, because it seems like I take way more videos than photos, but it takes freaking forever!!!, How do I make it faster??}}}
