11 Months!

My baby is 11 months old! I don’t know how we got here. Where did this last year go? I remember being so done with pregnancy this time last year… now I’m feeling a little nostalgic. Parts of me are very done with this baby stage. I’m not a major baby person. Another big part of me is not ready for my last baby to grow up.

Evie’s had another big month. She now has 8 teeth, the top and bottom four. She always gets them in pairs which makes her teething super annoying! She is 22.5 lbs which is down from last month but I’m not sure lasts month’s weigh in was completely accurate.

We’ve started noticing some curls in her hair when it is wet. It is not as pronounced as Livi’s was by this age but it has potential. Maybe they’ll both have curls!

Nov 9th Evie took her first step! Now she can take a bunch in a row without falling but still moves fastest when she crawls. She did this about 3 weeks earlier than Livi did as a baby.

This month had Evie having a really hard time with sleep again but these last few days she seems to have figured it out a bit. She is attaching to her blankie and falling asleep after being laid down in her crib awake. I hoping that this continues to improve.

She finally seems to be enjoying bath time. She still screams when we have to rinse her hair but she is enjoying the rest of it.

She still doesn’t talk much, besides uh oh, dada, and all done. She can say momma but would rather just whine for me. She has the whine down pat. She is very much my clingiest child. She has made strange a few times already too. Not loving that part at all. I already feel guilty enough leaving my kids every once in a while. I hate having her cry or whine on top of it.

Evie had her first halloween this month and happily say in the stroller, watching her sisters. Not sure if that’s going to cut it next year. She also was part of her first tree decorating for Christmas, but wasn’t really allowed to help 🙂 She has stayed away from the tree since yesterday when we set it up but we will see what the next month holds.

She also had her first visit with Santa! I wasn’t sure how she’d do but I think her sister’s helped. No smile but she looks happy 🙂

I’m excited for her 1 year pictures because I got the cutest little outfit for her, but I’m not loving the idea of her turning one. I’m not sure I’m ready for her to grow up yet!

    She's such a cutie!

    I was ok with Walter reaching a year, but now I've realised that his passport expires in September and it's hitting me that the 'two year' time period that seemed infinitely long when he was born is passing in the blink of an eye.

    Of course, lest I lament baby-passing too much, they always find a way of reminding me that it is certainly not all cuteness, hugs, and baby cuddles. ye gods!
