Lorien turned 11 months old on June 19th. She is such a joy! She is a good eater and a good sleeper. Still super-curious about everything in her world. She really watches what's going on around her. And still examines things carefully with one itty bitty index finger.
She says "oh yeah," "uh oh," "dada" and "mama." Not sure that she knows what they mean, but she says them really consistently. As she turned 11 months she had just started to crawl forward--just one movement at a time, though. In the past few days, she has finally started to string together several forward motions in a row, so she is officially crawling. (Whew!)
She is getting a bit opinionated. She will sometimes cry if we hand her to someone she doesn't know well. She loves the nursery at church, though, and never has any trouble being dropped off there.

And a couple of "outtakes," just to show what she's up to these days:
