Avery's 11th Month


On March 28th you turned 11 months old!! I can't believe you are less than a month away from turning one!! It just seems unbelievable that you're almost one.

You have really become a "big girl" this last month in so many ways. First up, you are walking like crazy now! Last month you were walking from one person to another and cruising all the furniture, but still not really letting go and walking on your own yet. But at 10 months old you started letting go and walking all over the place. There's no stopping you now!

You have not wanted much to do with your baby food this month now that you've been eating more and more regular food. You've actually cut back on eating altogether. I think you might just be too busy to eat now that you're walking. You still take a bottle of formula before bed and another during the night or first thing in the morning. 

You are wearing mostly 18 month clothes, size 4 diapers and a mixture of size 3 and 4 shoes!

You've mastered the sippy cup this month too! You often steal drinks out of Jackson's if you see it laying around. ;-) So I got you a few of your own and you love them! You know how to tip it up for yourself, but sometimes you'll bring it over and practically throw it at us to make us hold it up for you to get a drink... little stinker.

You also got a big girl car seat this month! You were getting far to heavy to carry around in the infant car seat, so we decided it was time to get you a big girl seat and you're loving it. :-) We went with this Graco MySize 65 Convertible Car Seat!

You started patting your baby dolls, and sometimes us, on the back now when you are giving love! It's the sweetest thing ever! You also lay your head on us and say "awe"... it's so sweet! You aren't all sugar and spice and everything nice these days though, you have a little temper when you don't get what you want. You throw a fit and stiffen up and it drives mommy crazy! You are impossible to diaper change and get dressed these days because standing still just isn't something you want to do.

You celebrated your first St. Patrick's Day this month and looked so adorable in your green and gold!

You got to go to your first Easter Egg Hunt and meet the Easter Bunny for the first time this month! 

You also got to go to several parks, since the weather has been so nice lately. :-)

And go on a couple of walks in the stroller.

We also started putting your hair in a tiny little pony-tail! It's the cutest!

You dance now on command and it is seriously the cutest thing ever!! You rock your head back and forth and bounce up and down! I love it.

We are planning your first birthday party for May 9th!! It is going to be a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star theme and I found the cutest little gold polka dot tutu and we have some gold shoes for you to wear. I also ordered you a birthday shirt, which should be arriving next week! I can't wait to get started on buying decorations! It's going to be such a cute party!
Our party inspiration!

So I think that just about covers it miss Avery! 
We love you more than words can say and have had so much fun with you this month. You are getting so big and growing so fast. It's happening in the blink of an eye. I love this age you are at as you have become a little more independent and we're starting to see more and more of your personality. I love it! You are such a beautiful and happy girl!

Mommy - xoxo
