Eleven Months

You are eleven months old today (January 28, 2013).
You weigh about 19 pounds - which I know since you had a visit to the emergency room after a tumble. It was a precaution and the doctor checked you out and decided you did not need x-rays or a ct scan. Thank goodness!
You wear size 3 diapers.
Most of your clothes are in the 9 and 12 month range, but you still wear some six month pieces.
You have four teeth and lots of drool.
You love to eat. This month there are some days you only want to feed yourself and some days you only want to be fed. You love fruit but usually only eat a few bites of your veggies (broccoli is your favorite vegetable right now). You are a big fan of bananas, cheese, pancakes, beef, and crackers...but you still will eat just about anything. The dogs linger next to you at meal time, especially Hunter. You are not intentionally dropping food for them yet, but you do like for them to lick your fingers while you are eating (gross!)
You continue to be a great sleeper at night and usually get at least 12-14 hours of sleep. You are very busy during the day!
You are not quite a walker yet, but you are getting close. You can take about 8 consecutive steps, but prefer to crawl to get around. You discovered the stairs and race from the bottom to the top (with Mommy close behind).
You have become so verbal this month. You babble all.the.time. Hi is still the only word you consistently say.
You understand most things we tell you and the signs that Mommy and Daddy use. You do not respond with any sign language still but you do follow commands to "can I have a kiss?", "come here" or "give it to Mommy". You have started to point at everything. Your favorite game is to drop something for us to pick up for you. You get very uspet when you do not get your way!
This month marks the end of your time with Ms. Lorena. She needs to have a hernia surgery and will be unable to lift you. I am a little more than DEVASTATED about this. You never cry when you are dropped off but most days you cry when I pick you up because you do not want to leave. We  decided on a center that you will start at when you turn one if we can not find another home-based setting. There is only a few months until the summer when you will get to spend all of your days with me. I can't wait!!
I love how determined and independent you are. You have the cheesiest smile and best laugh. Your Daddy and I love you to the moon and back!
