Isabella Johanna is 11 months old!

At 11 months, Miss Izzy J...
(sorry- not the best pic, but the best one i got!)

Has taken her first steps! The most in a row has been 5. But, she still prefers to crawl and cruise
Has four teeth! The top two have been driving me crazy taking their sweet time, but they're here!
Her hair is getting thicker, and an occasional "flip/curl" turns up
Is a goofy girl
Is also, apparently, a biter (how did I end up with two biting kids????)- luckily, she's only bit her sister (and, honestly, her sister kinda deserved it)
LOVES to yell
Wears 12 - 18 months clothing, sometimes even 2t!
Weighs about 24 pounds
Goes to bed between 6 and 7, and wakes up between 6 and 7
Takes only ONE nap a day, but its usually at least 2 1/2 hour, and sometimes 3 1/2 hours!
Will try pretty much any food we give her- loves fruits, especially berries, and LOVEs to drink water out of her sippy cup
Still nursing a good amount, but we've eliminated the night-time nursing (finally!)
I know most of the times she's nursing its a comfort thing. She eats MORE than enough food.
Does a few baby signs, but only when she wants: all done, more, please (did that once), waves hi and bye, gives high fives & knucks, and jsut started clapping!
She gets frustrated with her big sister (uh hem, hence the biting) but also loves her so much
Gets so excited when Daddy comes home!
Loves to go for walks around the yard and look at the birds and bees and the garden with her daddy
Is so much fun, and mommy, daddy and big sister Jessica are loving watching the toddler she is turning into!!!!
