{11 months}

11 months.
Where did our baby go? She sure is moving into that toddler phase. She already wants to be miss independent and is proving to be ready for it too. I still can't believe how fast this year has gone. I am back to work Monday - part time thank goodness (and Justin!) and then a few weeks later this little monkey of ours will be ONE. I remember when 11 weeks sounded old! But my oh my is she fun. Her smile is the best thing I have ever seen. Ever.
Just over 16lbs I think.
Approx 30 inches
She is sleeping great at night. Goes to bed between 7-8pm and sleeps until 6:15am. It's pretty crazy lately how she gets up right at 6:15am - even when we were driving! She naps twice a day - usually one around 9 and another around 1 or 2. And they vary anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. And to be honest the 2 hours naps have happened maybe 8 times but hey.
She is still a great eater! Eats lots and isn't picky right now at all. She is eating breakfast, lunch and dinner (and snacks) and nursing morning and night. We do a mixture of purees (less and less of this), mashed and small bits of food. She is a pro at putting small bits in her mouth and loves to eat off her tray, make a mess and share with Cruz.
She also loves water and drinking from her cup with a straw. Or whatever we are drinking from our cup.
If all of a sudden she looks blue it's because she is obsessed with blueberries. And loves meat like her Daddy and carbs like her Mom!
{diaper size}
Size 2 but I think I'll buy a pack of size 3 just to see if they are a good fit now - 2s still aren't too small but.she has wet through her diaper twice now.
{new foods eaten since last month}
She eats everything.
I have been making her different pancakes, waffles, mini muffins with no sugar and added fruits, veggies and spices. She chows down on everything.
Such a mix! Anything from 6-12m. I've been packing away lots lately as she seems to have had a little growth spurt and I've had to pull out her 12 month clothes - sigh.
{hair color}
Strawberry blond.
{eye color}
Very blue
Walking with help - she would do this all day long!
Standing & Climbing on everything (walls and stairs included)
Anything that isn't a toy
The pantry being left open
Being outside
Barrel of monkeys & throwing a ball
Making a mess - kleenex and toilet paper - game changers.
Moving things from one spot to another over and over.
Diaper changes
Putting pants on
Getting told no
Taking a tumble. We had a bad one yesterday. She bumped her head on the corner of her spice rack book shelf. We heard a new cry. :( Goose egg and a cut. :( Poor girl - she is one tough cookie though.
{this was me saying no to playing with the humidifier - mean Mommy}
{what's new}
We finally have a tooth poking through - her first!! Bottom right.
Stands without holding on to anything more longer periods of time
Walks around pushing the laundry basket solo
Went on her first road trip to Vernon/Kelowna and was such a trooper
Well Miss Delainey - you really could not make life better. We are so thankful to have such a happy and healthy little girl. I can't tell you how much I have loved and appreciated being home with you (& Cruz) this past year - easily the very best year of my life. And as sad and nervous as I am for Monday to come and for us to create a new routine - I know it will be good for us. And temporary. ;) We love you peanut.

I can NOT believe she will be one in a month! It's so crazy how quickly time flies! Mia will be TWO in December. Still trying to wrap my head around that one.
Good luck going back to work! Yay for part time!

Crazy to think that Miss D is 16lbs and 30 inches when Little Miss is 4 months and is 16lbs and 25.5 inches!

Lindsey (a running tale) said...

Aww love this post, she is getting so big! She looks so tall too. I know we just put away all the 6 month stuff and into 9-12 months. Crazy. I was going to ask you about teeth - yay D!! Her little poses are way too cute :) Good luck next week you will all do great!

OK. Her little tiptoes. DYING. So cute. Weston loves standing on his tiptoes too! We NEED to get them together someday. They are destined to be buddies. :)

I love her! She has the best facial expressions! And smiles! She looks so grown up! How is she possibly going to be one? That can't be right.
