11 Months Old

Again, I am a week late.


I love this picture, it looks like you are trying to show me how big you are!


In 3 short weeks from today you will be a year old (I am crying sitting here thinking about that and the fact that I have not done the first thing to get ready for your party).  You have grown in the wink of an eye and with Christmas right around the corner I am not even going to have time to think about it.  Geez, I need to savor these moments because you are not a baby anymore.  SLOW DOWN!

This past month you have:

  • Gotten tubes in your ears, God love you.  You did so good and you were in and out of there in a heartbeat.  It broke my heart when they brought you to me because you just wanted Momma, but you were fine as soon as I got you.downsized_1118000636


  • You still weigh about 19 lbs and wear size 6-12 month clothes and size 3 diapers
  • You love table food, for the most part.  Not so big on noodles but love sandwiches and oatmeal is your favorite
  • Doing better with a sippy cup, but still love your bottle (I have got to wean that the next few weeks).
  • You are walking pretty good, you can get half way across a room and stumble but you do it!
  • You got your first shiner the other night by falling into one of your walking toys (it was so pitiful).
  • You have 2 bottom teeth, 1 top and 1 more on the way.
  • You clap, blow kisses, wave, and give love.
  • You have a mean little temper and like to hit your head when you are mad (your brother did the same thing).
  • You know what “no” means and you get the little pouty lip when someone tells you it.


You are such a little blessing and we are so excited to celebrate your first Christmas and birthday.  We love you so much!
