Miss H is 11 months old

poor thing had a cold for this months pics...
Harper you are ELEVEN months old!

This month you weigh almost 17 lbs  You are now about 27 inches long! You still wear size 2 diapers.  You are in 9-12 month clothes.  You are a skinny little thing!

Monthly stats:

Nursing: You still nurse about 4 times a day.  Some days you may go without one of your day time feedings...but only if you are super busy playing.      

Eating Solids: You eat almost anything.  You no longer want baby food but instead what ever we have.  You really enjoy your meals too.  When you want food it is all business   

Sippy Cup: Still loving your cup of water.  You are getting to be a pro with your cup as you like to walk around with it now to show off.

Smiling: You smile all the time.  We are so very thankful you are as happy as can be.  You are a very social little one

Talking:  My little talker.  You love to chat.  You have recently begun to randomly through out a HI and then babble on and on.  I love your babbling.  You also love to use a sing song voice, so precious.   

Sign language:  You still can sign back to us dog, ball, milk, more, eat, all done, please, and baby.  We have begun to use thank you and banana this month.  You are almost there with those 2.  I love that you can tell me what you want without pointing and crying! 

Awareness:  You are a doing amazing on letting mommy and daddy head out of sight these days.  You maybe a little concerned at first but are easily distracted.  You also are aware of everything around you. You love to sit and watch....then maybe try it.

Observer:  You enjoy turning around in your high chair at restaurants and watching the others.  You also love to wave at them...and get a little upset if they don't wave back.  I love how you take in the world around you. 

WINSTON and BOB: Winston and you have a love/hate relationship...he loves to sit under your high chair but hates it when you chase him around the house, ha!  Bob she is still your little look out....she loves to chat with you while you are in your room napping.  She also loves to play with your paci that may get tossed out of the crib!  

Sleep: Well since we have been traveling your sleep has not been the best.  When at home you do a pretty good job of it.  You still love your 2 naps though, which mommy is glad. 

Your hands: you use these things like a pro....for catching yourself when you fall, picking up little pieces of dirt, and eating eating eating!  

Mouth: You love to give kisses these days.  Nice big juicy open mouth kisses!  Then make a cute kissing sound afterwards.  Tooth count-4 (2 top, 2 bottom)  

Your legs:  My little walker...these legs don't stop EvEr!  You are a very busy girl these days.  You love to walk, walk, walk.  You love to walk circles around the kitchen and living room just carrying a toy or pushing one.  You are the cutest little walker ever.    

Bath time:  Thankfully you still love your bath time.  Yes, you are still bathing in your little blue tub.  You do such a great job in it that I just don't want you to out grow it.  You love to sit and play with all your toys. You have recently found the foam letters and love them.   

Giggles:  Let the random laughing continue.  You just laugh and laugh.  We can really make you giggle when we play chase.  I love to hear your little giggle.  Mommy's little happy girl.   

Dislikes: You dislike being still.  Now that you can walk you really would like to do that.  You also dislike baby food...but hey that's understandable.

Things you are almost doing:

Running....also known as fast walking! Talking some words (more, hi) You randomly will through them out there but not enough that I can say you do it!

Wow 11 months already... We just can't believe how the time has gone so fast.  Everyday you amaze us more.  I love to see you grow and learn daily.  This month you have really learned many new things.  I am so thankful I can be at home each day to watch as you explore the world around you.  We are so thankful to have such a wonderful daughter like you. Mommy and daddy love you so much. All the way to the moon and back!
