Eleven months old

"Hi there, we are here with Cupcake this morning talking about what it's like to be 11 months. Cupcake, can you share with us some of the highs and lows of being just shy of one year old?"
 Are you talkin' to me? I don't remember agreeing to this interview. 
"Can you tell us how you've been sleeping these days? We understand that sometimes that can be a rough time for everyone involved."
 On the advice of my counsel, I respectfully decline to answer based on my Fifth Amendment constitutional privilege...
 "What about your eating habits, would you care to share those with our readers?"
 Well, I'm not sure what to say other than sometimes I really like to eat and sometimes I get a little distra... hey, is that a bird outside?
 I'm sorry, what was the question?
Are we done here yet? No? Well, do you mind if I do something else while you ask these questions?
You see, these books need tending to. If I don't take them off the shelf atleast three times a day, they just sit there getting dusty. It's my job to keep them rotated and fresh for the big kids around here. They depend on me, you know, to keep things running.
"You don't think they would say that they keep things running smoothly? I mean they help your Mom and Dad with the cooking and the cleaning and the laundry and they even take care of you sometimes when you've had a terrible night with little to no sleep and you just want to fuss and yell all day long."
HEY? Do you think it's easy growing these white things in my mouth? They hurt and they make me cranky and there really isn't anything that makes me feel better except nursing...
...and I said I wasn't going to talk about the sleep thing, OK?
This interview is over!!!
Mommy, can I have a nursey?


  1. I think this is my favorite one of these so far! Oh, so cute! Tell her Aunt Erin says she can come rotate the books on our shelf any...wait, scratch that; those high school books are *heavy.*


  2. So cute! Your cupcake sounds a lot like my little guy... I am so tired sometimes (like today, ugh). But they sure are cute!

    1. Yes, Amber, it was her cuteness that saved her from being "sold to the gypsies" as my mom would say. All day whining and yelling followed by waking every hour on top of a monster migraine headache. Teething hurts everybody!

  3. I have a ten month old, and have noticed many similarities between your cupcake and mine in the sleep department. I will remind you, for my own comfort as well, this too shall pass. I also have noticed that I pray a lot more these days.

  4. Best. Post. Ever.

    I'm smiling ear to ear. :)

  5. I just loved it!!!!
    In Christ,

  6. Sooooo precious. How can she be almost one already??? My mom also threatened to sell us to gypsies all the time.

    What a darling baby she is. We talk about her here all the time.

  7. Haha! So sweet!!! Prayers for some relief for all of you soon! Keep on going, Mama...

  8. Your Cupcake and our Kitty Katkins have a lot in common. Pulling out books and teething are a lot of work! How is it possible that she's a month away from being one year old? It's killing me how quickly time seems to be flying these days. These little babies are rapidly turning into toddlers.

  9. So cute! Those pictures fit the "interview" perfectly or is it the other way around. :)

  10. Hahaha! Too cute! Love it. :)

  11. She's so sweet! I loved the interview. I can't believe she's almost a year old!

  12. Oh so cute! Out to buy her fabric tonight.. Can't wait to send it to you sweet friend! I wish we still lived down the road from you so we could meet and visit with coffee!
    Boy, I've missed a lot in a week, my computer was on the fritz and I didn't get online much at all this week. Hope your book sale went well!
    Hugs to you all,


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
