This Texas Baby: 11 Months

Do I have to write this post? Maybe if I don't write about it, it wont actually be happening, right? No? Guess that means I better get on with it then...

My sweet, adorable, little Sadiebaby, you are 11 months old today. This time last year, I was huge and pregnant with you and just wanted to meet you! Now I am an emotional mess as your infancy draws to an end. But I wont get into all that today! I'll save it for your big 12 month post!

So over the past month you:
  • Celebrated your first Christmas! It was such a joy having you around for the Holiday's, it made them even more special. You didn't really care much for opening Christmas presents, you just wanted to loop bag handles around your fingers.
  • We're still feeding you the babyfood I made you, but we are also giving you more solids in the form of bites from our plates. You are still an excellent eater, so it's been hard for me to try and change things to get you to start feeding yourself more, but I'm working on it.
  • You are getting MUCH better with your sippy cup at daycare, you still wont take formula out of it, but we are going to be trying a lot harder over the next month to get you off bottles. I can't wait until I can pack all the bottles up!
  • You finally decided it was time for your top teeth to start coming in! One has already broken through and the other is SOCLOSE to breaking through. You are a champ teether so far. Your bottom teeth never bothered you and your top ones don't seem to be either. Hopefully you keep it up when your molars start coming in!
  • You still haven't said any words yet. At least I don't think so! I do think you have baby babble for some words. You'll say "dadadadadadada" over and over again but I don't think you're really relating that to daddy yet. When we are heating your bottle up you'll say "bababa" and point at the microwave. And when we stand at the back door to call the dogs in you'll say "pupupu" and I encourage you with saying "where are the puppies?". You'll say "mamama" every once in a while, but it's super rare and again I don't think you are relating that to me, even though I tell you every day, 15 thousand times, I am "mama".
  • You are starting to walk while pushing toys around the house. Traditional baby walkers don't seem to work that great on our wood floors as they go to fast and you end up falling. But for Christmas we bought you this big toy block thing that you push around a lot. You'll also push around rubbermaid totes, hey, whatever gets you walking!
  • You are still a sleeping champ! You go to bed at 6:30pm and I still have to go in and wake you up at 6:30/6:45am during the week and on the weekends you will regularly let us sleep in until 8:30am and have even been known to extend that to 9:30am.
I feel like there are so many other things I am forgetting from the past month! I am happy I do these monthly updates, but at the same time I find myself saying "oh I need to remember this for the next month" and then I end up missing whatever is going on. Plus, I walks get super emotional and sad while writing these! It's a tough call on if I will do these after you turn a year old. Maybe we will just do an update every 3 months, or just when something big happens!
