Eleven Months Old!

I wrote this post on her actual 11 month birthday but I'm just getting around to adding the pictures.  We're busy with party prep around our house!

I have no idea how we're already here but my baby is less than a month away from turning ONE!  I just can't believe it.  Time has just FLOWN BY!!  I told Austin that I'm probably going to be sad all month long because everyday a little less baby is there and a little more toddler shows up.  I just CAN NOT believe an entire year has already gone by!  I think this has been my favorite month so far with our sweet girl, she is just SO much fun!

Hannah, here is what you've been up to in your eleventh month!

Sleep: Nothing has really changed in this area, you are still a great sleeper and sleep in a sleep sack every night and at nap time. You are going to bed around 7-7:30 and sleep until 5-6am during the week and usually between 6-7am on the weekends. The past few weekends you slept until 7-8 which was nice, you must be extra tired from all the walking you're doing!  You are taking one or two naps (one at school and usually two naps a day on the weekends) for a total of 2-3 hours each day.  The only thing that's changed this month is that we're having to wake you up most mornings now to go to school.  You are just so worn out that you want to keep sleeping and I can't blame you one bit for that! 

Daily Routine: Your daily routine consists of playing all day with your friends and eating/napping. You are usually the first one to your class at 6:30am and I pick you up before 5pm. You have two/three bottles a day at daycare, eat breakfast and lunch that I send with you and snacks with all your friends and take one nap. Sometimes if you don't get a good nap at school you are CRANKY around 5:30-6pm.  At the end of the day we head home and you play with your toys and walk all around the house finding things to get into.  You eat dinner around 6pm and then it's bath time and you take another bottle and you're out for the night.

Feed: You take four bottles a day and eat three meals and two snacks, I think we're about to remove one of those bottles this week and also replace one of the bottles with a sippy cup.  Your teachers did that a few days ago and you liked it once you realized it wasn't your regular water in the cup. You still love drinking water from your sippy cup!  For your meals you eat a fruit with oatmeal mixed in every morning and a fruit and veggie and chicken/turkey every night. You still LOVE your organic puffs, Mum Mums, yogurt melts and little puff sticks for a snack too.  We give you more table food now and you've loved all of it so far so this next month we are going to just use up all the baby food left over and then you'll be just on all table foods!

Weight: 20 lbs 14 oz at your dr visit a week ago (63%) You had gained two lbs since your last visit!

Length: 29" (69%)

Diaper Size: You wear size 3 Pampers during the day and you wear night time diapers at bed time.

Clothes Size: You're in some 9 month sizes but mostly 12 month outfits.

Hair Color: Your hair has really grown this month!  It's still a blondish color.

Eye color: You have big beautiful brown eyes.  Your eyes are very expressive, I love it!

Funniest moment: Your facial expressions still crack us up daily.  You make the cutest faces and your eyes show it all.  It's so funny to watch and we just laugh at you all the time and then you think it's pretty funny too.  :)  I think your Daddy would say your funniest moment was at bath time a few weeks ago when you looked down and saw your big belly and just slapped your hands on it and grabbed it and squeezed it a few times.  So funny.  It was like you had just realized you had a belly. 

Milestone: You are a full blown walker now!  About a week ago you quit crawling and just walk everywhere, almost running at times.  You've gotten so good at turning around and turning corners to go into another room.  You really like to walk with things in your hands.  You've also perfected the move from sitting to standing, we're all pretty impressed by this.  You don't even need to use your hands, you just stand right up!  Another milestone this month is climbing!  Not so sure how I feel about that one just yet though....  You also moved to your big girl carseat which is bittersweet.  I'm glad I don't have to carry that thing to the car every afternoon but it was really nice when you fell asleep in the car (which you do often) and we could just bring you inside wherever we were and you would just keep napping.  You found your tongue this month too and love to slide it back and forth and make noises.  You also moved up to a size 4 shoe!  You are going to be tall I think based on your shoe size!    

Your favorite toy: I'm not really sure what your favorite toy is right now, you seem to love them all!  You play with something for a while and then move on to the next toy.  You're a very busy girl!  You do LOVE Baby Einstein so I put that on when you're playing in the playroom and you will stop and watch it in between playing with your toys.  You still love shoes and have found a new love of kitchen utensils.

Some of your firsts this month were:

You were baptized this month!  You did SO good and Mommy and Daddy were very proud of you!!

First 4th of July

First tantrum!  You've done this a few times where if we take something away from you, you scream and throw your head back and move away from us.  It lasts about 10 seconds and is hilarious.  We just stare at you until you decide you've made your point.  You don't get that item back either so it's pretty much just a show you put on for us. ;)

Playing peek-a-boo!  You love it, it's sooo cute!  I have lots of video of you playing with us.  :)

You now will walk backwards towards us and plop down to sit in our laps.  It's so cute!

You've started brushing your own hair this month.  You love to brush your hair.  Sometimes you don't want to let go of your brush!

First time in your big girl car seat!

Here are some cute pics I took of you this month with my phone.

Mohawk after bath time!

Watching Daddy pick veggies out of the garden 

That was one BIG tomato Daddy grew!  I just wanted a picture of you holding it but you were quick to take a big bite.  :) 

Before bath time one night you walked over to the scale and just stood on it.  I guess you've seen Mommy do that a time or two.  ;) 

Sleepy time


I love taking pics of you while you sleep 

You and your buddy B watching people walk by outside 

Here are some outtakes from your eleven month photo shoot.

Looking out the window

Rare moment where you are actually looking at the camera!

You love Mr. Lamb! 

"Hannah!  Look at Mommy!!!"  That's pretty much how that one went... 

You got your bow off pretty fast! 

Trying to stand up on your glider while I was taking your pics solo... 

I told you no.  This is the reaction I got... 

Mommy is just SO mean for not letting you stand on your chair!  Haha!  That ended about a second after it started. 

Hannah Lee, you are the sweetest, funniest, happiest baby girl we ever could have hoped for!  Your Daddy and I love you SOOOO much and enjoy everyday with you!
