11 Months

Today my baby is eleven months old. Wait...WHAT??



She weighs about 20lbs.

She is 28 inches tall.


So Harper, what have you been up to this month?


You are a crawling like crazy. You scurry all over the house and are into everything and are totally loving all the freedom. You are constantly pulling yourself up to stand and cruising along furniture and are getting really brave. I have a feeling it won't be much longer before you're taking steps and that blows my mind. What happened to my itty bitty doll baby?

Look at me, Mom! I think I might just let go. Especially since I'm over the tile...it's more fun that way!

You love to give me kisses. I totally trained you but they are still just as sweet ;) You don't stay long though because you've got lots of places to go and people to see!





You are an eating machine now which I think is so funny. You refused to eat anything for the first 3 months I tried to get you on solids and now you inhale anything put in front of you. Except baby food...you still refuse anything pureed. I just give you small bites of whatever we're eating and you haven't turned away anything yet. You seriously eat more than your brother at this point. Ha! Now that you're eating 3 solid meals I've started the weaning process and we're down to 3 nursing sessions a day. (But you usually get a 4th in the middle of the night because this mama is too tired to fight you.)

Bring on the thirds!

You are sleeping better than before but still not great. But progress is progress and I'm grateful! It doesn't help that just when we're getting back into our groove you get sick again and our routine goes back out the window. Your bedtime is around 8 and you usually wake up once a night still but are getting better. Naps are still a fight but I'm winning more often now ;) You'll nap decently in the car but in your crib it's usually only about 30 minutes tops.

But I don't WANNA take a nap!!!!

You got your two front top teeth this month. And since you love to flash your sweet smile so much you always get to show them off.

More teeth will make this eating thing even better. SWEET!

You are a total momma's girl. You love people and will go to just about anybody but there are times that you want me and only me. I won't lie and say that when you cling to my arm and bury your face into me it doesn't make me happy to feel so loved by you. :) You are smiley and happy 95% of the day (until it's time to sleep, of course). Everybody is always telling us what a sweet baby you are and they are so right!

 











 Harper Grace, this next month is going to be bittersweet. I know I will enjoy every minute of my time with you but I am also aware that we entering the last days of your babyhood and I definitely feel the weight of that on my heart. I'm going to do my best to not think about that fact and instead soak you and all of your baby sweetness up. We love you so much and are so thankful that God chose us to be your parents!
