One year ago, today, you were expected to be born. And with just 10 days until your birthday, I've been thinking about how much you have grown and changed.
Every month since birth I have been in awe with how quickly you grow and I'm so proud of the little girl you are today. I know I haven't updated in a while but I thought I would share some of the things we have been up to and how my big 11 month old has changed!
Firstly, I haven't updated about your eating habits lately. Now that you are almost a year old, you can usually have at least something off of my plate. It's nice to some extent but it also gets a little annoying because you LOVE to eat :-) Recently you've added breads, cheese, cottage cheese, broccoli, ground beef, and all different kinds of noodles to your menu. You eat so so so much and I'm proud of my good eater!
You still don't love the taste of cow's milk. Every now and then I try to give you some to help you get used to it, but you're not very fond of it. Since I quit breastfeeding I've been trying to make sure you eat different cheeses until you start getting used to milk, and for now you are still loving your bottles/sippys of apple juice, carrot juice, pear juice, and water.
I've also started letting you feed yourself and lately whenever I try to spoon feed you, you just want to do it yourself! It's adorable but it does make meal time a little bit messier.
Developmentally, It's unbelievable what you can do. You have mastered standing on your own for up to 10 seconds at a time and you've started "crawl-walking" where you are crawling but with you knees off the ground like you want to get up and run!
Also, the other day your grandma got you to walk around the house (with her help of course). I had got you walking when you were 8 months old by holding your hands, but after a few times you wanted nothing to do with it (watch the video here). So, your grandma tried holding you (facing out) by your waste and right away you took off!
So, your birthday is next week and I will be sharing as many pictures and updating about decorations and crafting! See you then <3
