Mckinlee 11 Months

We are here.  My baby is 11 months old. One month away from ending her infancy and entering into toddler hood.  How did this happen?  I am still taken back by the fact that this year has gone by so fast.  I guess that is the story of motherhood though.  Time is so fleeting.

Mckinlee at 11 Months

Eating: You are only nursing 2-3 times a day for maybe 5 minutes at a time.  I realize that you have basically decided that you are done.  This makes me sad, but I know that any mommy milk I can give you is good, so I will continue to nurse you 2-3 times daily until you turn a year. You are taking bottles of formula as well. You are taking formula to try to add some extra calories, and because my milk supply is basically non existent when I pump.  You are still eating 3 meals a day and you usually have 2 snacks.

Sleeping:  You are still sleeping through the night from 8:30-9.  You are taking 2 naps daily unless you wake up late. You usually nap in the morning from 10-11 and from 1-3.  You are teething right now so that has messed with a few of your naps.

Size: Still tiny. You have grown into 6-9 month sleepers due to length. You can still wear 3,6,9 month shirts. You have outgrown your size 2 shoes and are now in 3's. You are filling out a size 2 diaper now.

Speech: You are a mocking bird when it comes to noises, but you have not added any extra words this month.

Exciting New Things:
  • You have your first tooth coming through right now. Bottom right.  You got your first tooth at the exact same age as Caleb.
  • You are able to stand on your own a little bit longer every day.
  • You love to look out our back glass door and bang and squeal.
  • You jump towards dada now and love to play.
  • Bath time is still your favorite, and you all but dive out of our arms to get in.
  • You cling tight to me when I try to put you down.
  • You arch your back and stiffen your legs if you do not want to sit.
  • You signed with a modeling agency this month along with brother. We will see if anything comes of it.
  • You love to climb anything and everything. Stairs are your favorite.
  • You love to pass stuff back and forth. You always hand it to me and say "heeerr". I swear you are saying here. 
  • You are teething hardcore.  You have been extra fussy and clingy, and you try to bite at my shoulder. Poor baby.
I love you so much my sweet baby girl.  I am going to hold you extra tight this month.
