Watch Me Grow: 11 Months

I’m not sure how we’re here already, but we’re one month away from having a one year old!

I’m not sure how time has gone by so fast.

Evelyn has graduated up to a full crawl this month.  She rarely does her army crawl anymore.

She’s also taken her first steps – just two so far.  Anything for a bottle!  She’s still got a ways to go before she’s full on walking, but she’s moving in the right direction.

Evelyn slept through the night two times this month.  That’s better than zero, right?  But she’s also had quite a few nights where she wakes up in the middle of the night wanting to play.  Not cool, girlfriend.  Mommy and Daddy need their sleep!

Evelyn loves being heard.  She gave up the paci four months ago, so her love of babbling can be a bit problematic at times.  Like at church…  Hopefully her cuteness makes up for it? 

Dada is still Evelyn’s only word.  I work with her on saying Mama, and she defiantly replies with Dada.  Charlotte thinks this is the funniest thing in the world, so I’m sure Evelyn will keep doing it to get laughs!

I’ve also been working with Evelyn on clapping.  When I tell her to clap, she grabs my hands and claps them together.  At least she understands what I’m saying, right?

Evelyn also loves giving slobbery open mouthed kisses anytime someone tells her that they love her.  She’s an affectionate gal!

So here’s to eleven months!  It’s been fun!

Weight: Around 22-23 pounds
Height: About 29 inches
Drinking: 20-25 ounces of formula a day and 10ish ounces of water
Eating:  Two meals of table food a day and one meal of baby food.  She loves any kind of meat I put in front of her.  We’ve let her try shrimp too, and she devoured it!  She is also a broccoli fan!
Napping: She naps for about an hour in the mornings and then takes a 2-3 hour nap in the afternoon.
Nighttime Sleeping: Goes down for the night between 7:00 and 8:00.  Wakes up once during the night for a 4 ounce bottle.  Sometimes she goes right back down after the bottle and sometimes she wants to stay up for 2 hours!  Ahhhhh!
Clothes: A few 6-9 month pieces still fit, but she’s primarily in 9-12 month clothes.
Shoes: Size 3.  She kicks off pretty much any shoes I put on her feet except for boots.  Gotta love velcro!
Diapers:  Huggies Little Snugglers size 3
Words: Dada
Teeth: Three – the two bottom ones and a random side one up top. She looks like a little vampire baby!

We didn’t want her to mess up her Thanksgiving dress, so we left her in her PJs until after she ate!

yikes, 11 months old already. I bet time is flying to you, watch out I'm sure she'll be up walking before to long and you'll be chasing after her. :)
