The Peanut Post - Month 11
Stats: So grandma hasn't seen you for a week and says that you've grown and changed. I need to weigh/measure you, I just haven't.
Wearing: Onesies range from size 3-6 to 12 months. It mainly just depends on the onesie. Pants are 6 months and higher. Your shoe size is now a 3. Diapers are 3 but I'm seriously thinking you need a 4 but based off the weight on the package you're fine in 3...
Sleep: I hate to answer this because I don't want to jinx it but so far you're back to sleeping through the night. When you're cutting teeth though that's a different story. Usually you go to sleep around 8-10 (closer to 9-10) and you're up somewhere between 6-8 am for a bottle. If you wake up at 6 we can sometimes take a nap, other times we can't. It just depends. Naps during the day... usually 1-3 depending on what's going on and just how tired you are. Plus how long your naps really are. Typically we're on 2 naps 1-3 hours each nap.
Behavior: So you babble a lot... mainly momma and dadda and baba.... We've been working on high five's. You're standing and pulling yourself up a lot. This week you learned how to climb up on a couch all by yourself. You're getting better at getting off a couch feet first by yourself. You took your first steps on Mother's Day but haven't really tried since.
Eating: You love food. We really haven't found any foods you aren't caring for but you still aren't as crazy about ketchup. You prefer real food over your bottle but really want a bottle first thing in the morning and right before bed. Other times it's hit and miss. You also like to drink from straws backwards but you like your liquids.
Appearance: You have 2 teeth, both bottom fronts. Your hair is getting longer. I'm pretty sure we're cutting another tooth, it just hasn't come through yet.
Likes: You like tags. You like things that make noise like chip bags. You like your grow with me chair. You like mommy. You like daddy. You like real people food. You like bath time. You like to play with necklaces. You like to sleep with your Monkey Taggie. You still like that binkie (bummer).
Dislikes: You don't like being told no. There doesn't seem to be much you don't like. You become a little grouchy when you're extremely tired. HATES when you enter the house and we set you down without getting you out of the car seat immediately.
Milestones: First steps were taken on Mother's Day, but not since. You can stand a little bit on your own.
Mommy: I was so lucky that God picked you to be mine. That's it. I miss you when you're gone. I absolutely LOVE that you call Momma and head for me. You prefer for me to hold you over most anyone else (I'll be sad when that day leaves). You love to just hang out with momma.
Daddy: Daddy loves his baby squirrel.
Other: You absolutely love your sissy and she loves you. That's pretty much all that matters!
Dear baby girl,
You are the light of our life. We absolutely love you and experiencing new things through your eyes. We're coming up in a new area of your life and you're a boat load of fun. You like to be involved in everything but when you get tired now you really let us know. If all else fails, know that you are totally and 100% loved!
Love you so much,
Mommy & Daddy!
