11 months!

11 month stats:

* As of 9/21, weighs 17lbs even and is 27.75″ long.
* Is in a 6-9 month for most things, but a 9-12 month pants size to cover her big diaper butt! Still in a size small diaper cover.
* Still has just the two teeth, but we’re expecting to see the two top ones any day now.
* Goes to bed in her crib between 7:00 and 8.
* Is up for the day between 6 and 7.
* Takes two naps a day between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours each
* Is happy pretty much anytime anywhere as long as she’s riding around in the Ergo or Beco and getting to check out the world around her.
* Cruises furniture as necessary to get what she wants.
* Wants to climb. And climb. And climb some more.
* Is a preposition (over, under, around, through, etc.) when she’s not busy being a verb
* LOVES to swim.
* Has had a verbal EXPLOSION in the past week or so and is quite the little parrot! Words include hi, Dee-dee (Grady, our 5-month old friend that we watch during the day), daw (dog), cah/gah (cat), dada, mama, duh (done), moh (more–says and signs!), doh (no), and yah (yeah). Yes is used somewhat correctly, no is either parroted or used when referring to something she’s not supposed to do (she’ll start to do whatever it is, look at me, say “doh,” proceed to think for a couple of seconds, and then maybe do it anyway! :-D )
* As of this weekend (so 11 months and a couple of days), says “hi kitty!!!” and “hi Daddy!!!!” (The exclamation points represent her tone when she says it!)
* Can follow a couple of simple directions. (“Bring me that,” “go get a book.”)
* Recognizes when we turn into our townhome complex’s driveway and gets excited that we’re almost home.
* Eyes appear to be set at hazel. They change colors with the light and make her already expressive face seem extra expressive!
* Favorite toys are things that make noise (shakers, her lap piano, anything she can drum on) and BOOKS! She will sit for long stretches of time (over 10 minutes!) going from book to book to book, turning pages and looking at pictures, and even when we’re just going to the store, must have a book on hand, just in case the need arises. She’s her Mommy’s girl! :-D
* Favorite books are the Bob book (Fifteen Animals), I Went Walking, Carry Me, and anything with pictures of babies.
* Current favorite non-fruit foods are beans and peas. She will almost literally eat her weight in beans and peas.
* Is getting the hang of a sippy cup and starting to show some interest in utensils.
* Is so much fun!

Little Miss Personality

Annie has always had her own personality, but we’ve been seeing a lot of it lately, and it’s pretty darned neat. As usual, click the following for the pictures: Read the rest of this entry »
