Eleven months!  Holy cow!  We are only a month away from baby girl’s first birthday.  But, today we are going to focus on the last month, cause otherwise I’ll just start crying.  She learned so much this month.  She learned where her belly is…she lifts her shirt up, points, and says belllly!  She takes her blanket everywhere which is cute, but goodness, if you forget to take it.  Yikes.  When she gets excited she goes oooooooooo and sucks in her breath.  She’s actually been doing this for awhile, but it’s the cutest ever and I haven’t mentioned it yet.

She has four teeth and at least one more coming in!  Sleep and eating has pretty much stayed the same, but we are thinking it’s time to drop the morning nap and start introducing whole milk?  We are afraid to mess with too much though because we are in a nice groove.  We shall see!

And with all that, it’s party planning time!!!  We decided to distance her party from Christmas because as someone with a winter birthday knows, it stinks when it gets grouped. So that’s happening in 2 weeks! Better get started!

You make every day better, sweet pea!!

…Baby #2!

You guys!! We have another sweet babe on the way!  Emotionally, we float somewhere between extreme excitement and oh my gosh, we will have two under two!  We wanted our first two close in age and E and this babe will be 17ish months apart I think?  We are due June 2, 2017 which puts me at 12 weeks, but I look about 20 weeks!  I kind of like it though because I feel like pregnancy is more fun/easier when people know and can tell!  Eleanor has also suddenly become obsessed with babies which is interesting.  She points to babies and says baba (which is actually what she calls everything, but it’s a different baba sounds which totally makes sense, right?).  There’s a new baby at the sitter so they have been practicing gentle touches and she pretty much insists on seeing the baby every few minutes.

It’s safe to say we can’t wait to meet you, little one!

We went to Memphis at the beginning of October and Eleanor and I conquered her first flight!  She was a bit of a wild one on the first flight, but slept the whole way the second flight there and both on the way back!  We are going to Arizona over Thanksgiving and the flight will be significantly longer, but at least Matt will be with us!  Also, this backpack.  I can’t.

Speaking of zoo…This one of my dad and Eleanor kills me.  Kills me.  They were attached at the hip the whole trip.

Eleanor had THREE costumes this halloween.  Each one: pumpkin, bear, bee was so worth the screams to get them on.

Dear fall, we love you.

Apple picking: very serious.

We had to hold her hand to get her to stand still for five seconds.  Pumpkins and leaves everywhere.  How’s a girl expected to stand still for a picture??

We had a wedding a couple of weekends ago and Eleanor literally danced until she passed out.  We couldn’t get her off the dance floor.

TEN MONTHS!!! The last month has flown by, literally.  We have a fast one on our hands!  She is into everything and can now run away when she gets ahold of something.  She started walking shortly after she turned nine months and has gotten faster every day.  This has caused some of those rolls to disappear which we are sad about, but knew was inevitable once she got on the move!  She definitely understands what we are saying because we will say things like bring us the ball and as long as we point to it, she will bring it!  Really feels like we can communicate with her now!  She knows how to get what she wants by pointing and, if you don’t do it right away, is accompanied by a scream.  During the week she takes about three naps because I am not sure how soundly she sleeps at the sitter with the other kiddos so she takes a little siesta when she gets home, but on the weekend it’s a decent morning and afternoon nap.  10-11 hours at night is still her happy place, but there’s still that pesky 4 am wake up from time to time (like this morning).  The need for paci at night has mostly faded too, except for when those teeth cut (two on top coming in now!).  She’s still on her normal bottle schedule for the most part, but just also eats solids three meals a day.   Overall, I mostly feel like she is getting ready to jet off to kindergarten in these pictures which is just terrifying.  They grow up too fast, but we are just loving every minute with our sweet pea!  Just two months until the big ONE!

Nine Months!

Baby girl is nine months!  She is a ball of energy weighing in at 22 pounds, putting her in the 96th percentile.  The top she has on here is a 2T…which is WHAT?!  She can crawl, stand, walk behind a walker, babble some words on her own and definitely repeats what we say like mama, dada, baba, etc…She loves all things food.  She still is sleeping like a champ for now…pediatrician says she has three teeth about to come in on top…so….I’m soaking up the sleep now.  She LOVES peekaboo and booping people on the nose.  Get her started on either of those and you’re in for a full afternoon.  She also loves to blow raspberries and is starting to cuddle!  We love you our little sweet pea!
