Amelia turned 11 months old on October 26th.
She weighs about 19 lbs.
Right as she turned 11 months old she (along with Big brother eventually) got sick - colds, coughs, fevers, some throwing up. It was not a very fun time & lots of lost sleep for everyone. Now everyone is back to normal (accept for Amelia's sleeping at night which we are working on.)
A sleep routine on an ideal day for Amelia would be one nap right after lunch for a couple hours.
Bedtime around 8 or 9. The tricky part is the wake up time. Since being sick, if she wakes up during the night she just wants to be held. Its getting a little better each night but we still have a ways to go. At least I am getting some extra snuggles from this baby girl.
Amelia is always on the go! There is always something to get into, tear up, chew on, climb, etc. She keeps us busy!
Amelia has around four 6 ounce bottles of pumped milk each day (woohoo! I just about made it the full year nursing/pumping!) She drinks water from a straw sippy cup. She eats all 3 meals with us at the table each day. At this point she mainly eats whatever the rest of us are eating. Her favorite foods are mostly fruits and veggies - apples, grapes, green beans, edamame, corn, and also cheese. She will eat meats and beans, its just not what she would choose.
This is one of her favorite toys right now...the spatula from the play kitchen. Doesn't she look proud?!
Messy, messy eater!
Her BIG accomplishment for the month was taking her first steps at about 10.5 months. In this picture she is holding my hands (couldn't capture it on a pic that first day) but this day she took 3 steps then another 4 steps later on. Since then she will still only take a few steps here or there - nothing too consistent. But she is trying. And she is very cautious.
We love this sweet girl and all the joy she has brought us these last 11 months. That first birthday will be here in just 2 short weeks now. Can't believe it!
