Annabel: 11 Months

Little Miss Annabel is just one month away from being a year old!  Wow!  This year has flown by.

What are you doing?

  • Wearing 9 or 12 month clothes
  • Size 3-4 shoes
  • Size 3-4 diapers
  • Nursing 4 times a day
    • 5am
    • 1pm
    • 7pm
    • 8pm
  • Eating meals & snacks like a big girl
    • You really prefer meat over fruits & veggies which is completely opposite of your sister.  Way to keep it interesting, baby girl!
    • You prefer to feed yourself, so I try to give you all finger foods.  You won't eat as well if it's on a spoon.
  • We think you've had a major growth spurt lately because you feel a lot heavier & you've been eating like crazy.
    • We weighed you on our scale at home last night & it said 19# (25-50%)
  • Crawling super fast
  • Pulling up to stand & cruising; we've even caught you letting go of things & standing on your own for a few seconds at a time.
    • You can pull up & stand on with the slightest effort so you're close to taking off walking.
  • You learn so fast & you try to mimic everything we do.  
  • One of your favorite things to do is sit on the trampoline while you sister bounces you around.  If she stops you start bouncing up & down on your knees.
  • You have started dancing to music & you have developed a little head-banging move.  It's really cute.
  • You hate wearing bows & usually pull them out as soon as I'm not looking.
  • You understand "no" and obey it most of the time.
  • You've started giving hugs & kisses on command.
  • You are aware of strangers & latch on to Mommy or Daddy when one is around.

 What can you say?

  • Momma, Dada, Ada (this is what you call Adeline), Bye Bye, Night Night, Go, Book, Ball, Tulip (kind of)
  • You mimic nearly all animal sounds
  • You sign more & milk

You are full of personality & we love watching it develop more & more every day.  We love you so much!
