Mommy's baby is getting too BIG

 My baby girl is almost 11 months old...Where has the time gone? She has almost completely weaned herself. She only nurses in the morning these days and gets bottles the rest of the day and for bed time.
 Its a little heart breaking for this mommy; My favorite time with Lilly has always been when i would feed her and rock her before I put her in her crib for bed. But lately, as soon as her bottle is empty she sit right up and reaches for her bed. Doesn't she realize mommy wants to Snuggle. She is my baby and I need her snuggle, I want her to snuggle...This mommy loves snuggling, and her baby girl just doesn't want to do it anymore at night; if her bed is near by and she is tired, she wants her bed.
She is a mommy's girl She doesn't like mommy to do things with out her. She reminds me a lot of Aunt Gretchen: She plays with her hair when she gets tired, she hates to be hot, and she wants mommy close by. I am grateful though that she will stay with Granddad and Memaw with out any issues. (which isn't like Aunt Gretchen, more like her mommy). She loves music, and dances as soon as she hears the set of notes. We have been watching "friends" lately and as soon as the them song comes on Lilly starts dancing. It is so cute.

She isn't walking yet, but she pulls up on EVERYTHING (even kids just a few months older then her) and wants to CLIMB everything. Yesterday at Church, Gary was in the office printing the bulletins for Sunday and I was getting the hall ready for Bible Study, Lilly was playing quietly on the floor. But the next thing I know she has crawled into the sanctuary and up the steps and is on the stage. The problem with this is is she doesn't know how to get back down. I have tried to show her, but when I try to move her she thinks I am picking her up. I know she will get the hang of it eventually.

She is still Tiny. We haven't taken her into the nurse to get weighed, but I am guessing she is around 6.5 to 7 kg ( 14.3-15.5 lbs). She is still in 3-6 months clothes and she still wears some 0-3 month as long as they are T shirts or Shorts and not Onsies. She is going to be smaller then I was at a year, but that is ok. She loves to eat and loves her bottles, she is just tiny. Her daddy was a small baby as well, so she doesn't have much hope. Just hoping if we have boys they get Uncle Davids genes in the height area. Except soccer players don't need to be tall :)

She is the cutest baby in the world and I love her.
