11 Months Old

11 Months Old
It has been a rough couple months. But now, after
many doctors visits, lots of medicine, and finally surgery,
it seems as though our Alexa is back! Although a difficult
time on us all, we still enjoyed everyday and each new
milestone along the way. Alexa seems to amaze us more
and more each day. She has truly brought
us such joy and happiness!
I can't believe I am saying this but we are already
preparing her "Winter-ONE-derland Birthday" party!
I never in a million years would have thought this time
would go by so quickly. To think, this time last year,
we were waiting very impatiently for the arrival of what
we called her then as "Baby Girl Mattoon".
Each month these pictures are getting
harder and harder to capture!
I was basically chasing Alexa around the house
trying to get one picture that met my expectations!

We even made it into the bathroom!

And then she decided to take a few steps as I
am trying to back away to grab another shot!

2 steps on Saturday
4 steps on Sunday...
THEN on her 11 month birthday, Alexa stood up
all on her own and took seven steps. This continued
several times tonight! One time, she took
4 steps, turned around and took 3 more!
