11 Months

I totally missed 10 months and since Madeline's one year birthday is in two weeks I figured I better get working on her 11 month post! :)


You are 11 months old!! (plus 2 weeks...eek!) You are about 20lbs...not sure how tall you are but your size 12 month jeans are pushing the highwater line! You still wear a size 4 shoe and size 3 diapers. You wear mostly size 12months clothes but your pajamas with feet are all 18 months because you are so long! They're a little long but the size 12 doesn't come close to fitting! You still sleep all night and take 2-3 naps during the day! 

You are into EVERYTHING! I feel like I say this every month and you  continue to prove to me how much more of a handful you can be...You love "organizing" the tupperware!

You LOVE animals...when we visited Gannaw and Ganpaw, you LOVED their cats. The cats weren't quite as fond of you. You have yet to meet an animal that doesn't make you squeal with delight! Wonder where you get that??  

You LOVE to play outside. You especially love the park and are getting to where you can play on some of the equipment. I love it too! 

You are still taking about 3-4 bottles a day. I am pretty certain our biggest struggle will be getting you off the bottle. Thankfully, we don't have to do it just yet because you really love your bottle. I gave you cow's milk and you love it! You are finishing up the last can of formula and then you'll be only on cow's milk! Yea!!! You still love cheese in any form -- macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese, quesadillas, string cheese, sliced get the idea. You also haven't met a fruit that you don't like. You really love strawberries, peaches, and bananas. You eat three meals a day and two snacks. You also found a new love this month -- nutri-grain bars! 

You have been trying to climb for a while now but you are just now becoming successful. You can climb on and off the futon, off the couch, and just figured out how to climb onto your bouncy seat and then up onto the entertainment center to touch the TV...oh man! 

You are running especially love to run from me when you see a diaper come out or an outfit. You HATE getting your diaper changed and you HATE getting dressed. It is my least favorite thing to do for usually end up upside down and turned around by the time we finish getting you ready to go somewhere!  It is also becoming increasingly difficult to get a good picture of your face since you like to run from us now! 

I am loving your facial expressions. You make your face into an "O" when you see something new that excites you and you point to it making the "oh" sound. SO cute! You also make the turtle face now when I ask for a kiss...I kinda think you know what kiss is because you used to give me the open mouth ones, but since you know how to do a turtle face now, you give me that instead and then laugh. You already have such a funny sense of humor! 

You got your first baby doll and you love her. You play with her a lot, but when you are down you tend to throw her on the ground. Sometimes you bang her on stuff. Her name is Emma, and I bet you two are going to make lots of memories together! 

You are just silly right now. Everything is funny to you, and you are consistently entertaining Daddy and me. We love your little laugh! 

You really enjoy helping me load and unload the dishwasher. You especially love wear me out! 

You eat almost every meal in the nude because you were ruining clothes faster than I could afford to buy them. You haven't left a bib on since you were about 5 months old so that didn't work either so now you just eat naked...unless we are in public! 

Your favorite toys right now are anything in the shape of a ball. You love balls and balloons! You also really love peek-a-boo and hide and seek. You love it when I jump out and surprise/scare you! You crack up laughing. My favorite time of day is right before bed when Daddy and I play with you in your room and you just soak it all in.

I could never tell you how you have changed our lives. Your Daddy and I can't remember what we did before you came along, what we talked about, or where our money went! ;) We love you SO much!!! You are truly a gift from God, and we are so grateful He chose us to be your parents. We love you sweet girl!!!
