11 Month Update

Height: abolut 31 inches
Weight: about 20 lbs
Head Circumference: about 18.5 inches
Movement: We have a half walker/half crawler. You took your first steps this month and have taken at a max of 5-6 steps at once. You get so excited that you just dive forward into my arms instead of walking to me. You will definitely be off and running by your first birthday! You are still quite the monkey and climb on everything! It is crazy to see how strong you already are. You hang on the bar at the gym for a good 10 seconds and can pull yourself up on cabinets, side tables, name it!
Eating Habits/New Foods: We are diving in head first into adult food and you are a little vacuum. Honestly, I don't think there is one single food you have tried that you didn't like. You definitely have favorites but you are open to it all. These are some new foods you have tried this month: hearts of palm, pickled beets, asparagus, mahi mahi, kiwi, pizza, cheese quesadillas, turkey and cheese sandwiches, teddy grahams, peanut butter and cheese ritz bits, pork lo mein, almond milk, and chicken and dumplings. You also love sucking on lemons and limes.
You are doing 3 bottles a day...4 oz in the morning, 4 oz in between 2-4 pm, & 8 oz at night. I am not sure how this weaning process will go next month. I think I'm going to stop the day bottle and start giving you whole milk.
Sleeping Patterns: Still sleeping through the night...about 11-12 hours depending on when we get you down. You are up at 8:15 am on the dot no matter what!
Sounds/Words: Big month for words!!! We now can say Mama, Dada, Doggy, Uh-O, hi, and my all-time favorite "no". You say no, no, no when you get near an outlet or I say it and you repeat after me. It is so cute, it's hard not to laugh.
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You took your FIRST STEPS!
-You get off the couch or go down the stairs feet first.
-You celebrated your first Easter which included dying eggs, making resurrection rolls, an Easter basket, church, brunch, beach, and some easter egg hunting on the beach.
