11 Months Old!!

On July 30th, you turned 11 months old!!

I cannot believe we are closing in on the one year mark. You have grown into the most beautiful, sweetest little baby. It's crazy to look back at this year and think how much has changed!

This month we spent Fourth of July at the Lakehouse and had so much fun with all of our family. They couldn't believe how big you were and they all love you so much. 

You have learned how to stand all by yourself this month! You don't do it often or for long, but when you do, mommy claps like crazy and gets soo excited. It probably scares you and makes you want to sit back down!!

You love to show off all your tricks. You will through your arms up in the air, "roll em up", give kisses and wave like crazy! 
It's soo cute! You love everyone and don't really know a stranger (as long as you are in mommy or daddy's arms!). You wave at EVERYONE everywhere we go!!

We have also been taking you to the beach and pool often. You love the sand and playing in the tide pools. We are so lucky to get to live right by the beach where we can visit whenever we want!

You weigh 19 pounds and are 27 inches long. You are still in size 3 diapers and where any where  from 9-12 month clothes. 

You are still breastfeeding about 4 times (sometimes more) a day. I don't really plan on stopping until you are ready to wean. But will cut back on the feedings at one year. 

You are eating three solid food meals a day and LOVE grapes, speggheti squash and turkey breast! You also love your water!

You are sleeping pretty consistently through the night. Recently you have decided that 5:45 is the time to wake up for the day......... I'm not sure how I feel about that!!

You have 4 teeth and they are soooo cute!! But we have to be very careful when we go to retrieve something you have eaten that you weren't supposed to!

This month has been so much fun and I love every single second of being your mommy. You are my greatest gift and my greatest adventure. I look so forward to all of the fun summers we will have on the beach, at the pool and at the lake. Your daddy and I are so thankful God chose us to be your parents because you have made our lives pretty amazing. We love you with our whole hearts and can't wait to see what this month has in store. (But maybe time can slow down just a little bit??? I'm not ready for you to be 1! You are my tiny newborn baby still!!)

Ohh, and you also gave me my first black eye by flinging your Paci!
