11 Months Old!


 Pearl is eleven months old!
This was a big month for Pearl.  She can walk now!  Crawling is still her preferred method of getting around though.  Walking is more of a fun game to her.  We stand her up across the living room from us and then encourage her to walk toward us.  She smiles the whole way and gives us big hugs when she gets to us.
Pearl has developed a silly fake laugh along with a loud squeal.  Another noise that she makes sounds exactly like the word "yeah."  She says it when she is really into something that she is playing with.  She just keeps saying "yeah, yeah, yeah" over and over again.
She has been teething all month, but has nothing to show for it.  Those top two teeth still haven't popped through yet.  I can't believe how much trouble two teeth can be before they even make their appearance.
We took her on her first beach trip this month.  She wasn't too sure about the water.  I don't blame her though, it was really cold.  Pearl was curious about the sand, but she didn't seem exceptionally happy to be sitting in it.  I'm sure she will like the beach a lot more when she is older.
Pearl loves playing with Jeremy's guitar and the piano, but so far she seems like a drummer at heart.  She had so much fun this month at the Children's Museum in the music room banging on buckets.  She is always turning boxes upside down and hitting them with her rattles and other hard toys.  She loves to bang on the side of her metal jack-in-the-box too.
We finally had to baby proof cupboards and drawers because she started to open them and throw the contents on the floor.  In general, she just loves to take things out of boxes, laundry baskets, and cupboards. If I need a couple of minutes to focus on something I will just give her a box full of toys and she will remove them from the box one at a time.
Pearl's personality just keeps showing more and more.  She smiles all the time, laughs, makes silly noises, and gives lots of hugs.  We love her so much and can't wait to celebrate her birthday next month!
See how much she has grown!
