11 months

Dear Chloe,
Today you are 11 months old. A month from today you will be 1 year old, it's hard to believe. You have started doing lots of fun new things this month.

You are so close to crawling. You get up on all fours by yourself, scoot around, and rock. If there is a toy or something you want you find a way to get it. Sometimes you get frustrated and roll over, but it's happening less and less.

You also started feeding yourself really well. I had to walk out of the room with some shredded cheese on your tray, once you realized I wasn't going to feed you anymore you were game. Since then you love to feed yourself. Definitely moving away from the purees and towards table food. You nurse twice a day now, in the morning and at night before bed. You get a sippy cup with formula in it twice a day now, which you love. You feed yourself your formula as well, and make sure to get every last drop! You are such a good eater, sometimes when it's all gone you get so mad.

I think you are getting your first tooth! I feel something sharp on your front bottom gum. I can see a little white poking through as well. You don't act any differently than you normally do, but you have always been such an easy going baby. I hope all of teething goes this smoothly for us.

You still nap two times a day. I think you are transitioning to one though. Some days you don't seem tired when it's time for your second nap and you fight it. If you wake up early you definitely take two, if you sleep in later you mostly just take one.

You love to babble and "talk" and smile and laugh. You love having "conversations" with us too. Telling us all about your toys or whatever is on your mind. There is so much interacting going on now, it's a fun stage.

You also love your blocks, flipping through your board books and most of your toys. Your favorite is putting all the blocks into the container, then taking them out again. This keeps you occupied for awhile. You still love your ball too.

Your hair is still full and thick, your eyes still that beautiful blue color. You are still petite, but so perfect. You wear mostly size 9 months or 12 months. Size 2 diapers in disposable still, 3 snaps on your cloth.

You are such a joy to your dad and I. Everyday I feel so blessed to be your mommy, really I do. I love you so much sweet girl. Can't wait to see what this month brings with you.
Love always,
