Happy 11 Month Birthday!

Happy 11 month birthday Sweet Pea!  She didn't really have a birthday this month because there wasn't a 29th day, but we still can celebrate it.

Here is what she is doing at 11 months old:
Weight: 17lbs 1oz with clothes on...yes, that is less than at 10 months
Foods: Took out all citric acid and even apples the past 2 weeks to try to help the reflux and it seems to be working, but it could be the decrease in quantity too...time will tell.   Eats lots of carrots, sweet potatoes, peas, green beans, chicken, turkey, pears,  pear juice, some bananas, teething biscuits
Favorite food: sweet potatoes with turkey
Favorite toy: still the musical star
Favorite song: Wheels on the Bus
Accomplishments: clapping, waving hi/bye, banging objects together, rocking on all 4's while I say Rock A Baby, drinking from a straw, dumping containers of toys out, taking objects out of containers, kneeling when on our lap with arms pushing up on chest, scooting backwards (even though she wants to go forwards)
Works in Progess: eating puffs (little finger foods for babies that easily dissolve so that they don't choke if swallowed whole), signing "more"and combat crawling
Sounds: da mainly but a few la and ba's...all with tongue outside the mouth
facial expressions: fish lips, lip smacks (not often)
Sleep: we wake her up or she wakes herself up for a twilight feed between 9:30pm - 11pm and then normally sleeps in until at least 6am and sometimes closer to 7am!

Sweet Pea is still recovering from her latest sickness.  She got new meds today from the doctor and we hope that her appetite comes back soon.  So far she has actually eaten more today than in the past few days so we are hopeful that she is turning a corner.  She slept fairly well last night with only waking up 3 times.  Even through all the not feeling good she has still been a love and joy to be around most of the time.

Here is video of her moving ever so slightly forward...using her toes mainly.  You will see that Kodi is a bit too "helpful" and will come to Sweet Pea instead of making Sweet Pea come to him.  He loves his little girl!  It will be interesting to see how their relationship changes as she starts chasing him around the house.  I think he will love the attention knowing him!

Mommy and Daddy love you Sweet Pea!  We hope you feel better really soon!!!


  1. Oh my "Sweet Pea", look at all the amazing things you can do. I just love it when milestones are met........great rewards for such hard little workers!! I can't wait to see what you will do next:)

  2. Your Sweet Pea is beautiful. I found your blog on another T21 blog I follow. My daughter Emily is 9 months old so I am enjoying reading your blog since our girls are so close in age.

  3. Wow, it sounds like she is doing great! She is such a little doll, I love all the pictures and videos. Really enjoyed reading your blog. It seems like my Lucas is always getting ear infections too and I wonder if we should see an ENT. I hope she starts feeling better soon, I'm sure the tubes will help a great deal.
