Annabelle is getting bigger and more independent everyday. She is an "I will do everything myself" child. She doesn't let us help her do anything, which in some ways is good, but it means we have to be even more patient and wait longer for things to get done. She is standing alone now and is trying to take steps on her own. She is getting braver by the day and makes bigger transitions between objects while "cruising." I really can't believe she will be 1 soon. They really do grow up too quick! Below are some recent videos of Annabelle with her new favorite purse.

So let me first off explain that Annabelle is shirtless because we just got home from church and were about to eat and I didn't want her to get her dress all dirty. I also didn't want to put a new shirt on her until after she made a mess eating. We don't let her run around like a Mexican wrestler all the time I promise =).
Annabelle has become quite the little climber lately. She even piles things like books up so she can climb onto surfaces that are too high for her to muscle her way up to. Yesterday she discovered she could climb into her stroller (pram for our Australian friends =)) from the couch. So like any good parents we let her do it under close supervision and captured it on video =).
Here's a picture of her in her Sunday dress as well. Enjoy our little monkey climbing away!

She has a constant runny nose, like someone turned on a mucus faucet. It's really gross. I try to dab at it all day, but it still runs constantly. It drives Annabelle crazy because it is wet and probably tickles. So this evening Annabelle pulled a roll of toilet paper off the counter top in the bathroom. She proceeded to put the roll onto her arm, like it was a bracelet. She then discovered she could use it to wipe her nose quite effectively. She wore it around wiping her nose and tearing off pieces along the way. I thought it was hilarious! It was great for me because I no longer had to worry about her wiping her nose all over everything. What a clever little girl and she isn't even 1 yet =).
