11 Months!!

Friday, September 11, 2015

Our Dearest Stella,
I still can't believe that in just under a month you will be a year old. I still feel like you should only be one month old. You bring so much joy and happiness into our home everyday. You are definitely a daddy's girl, unless your sleepy, then you want mama. You're already our little dancing queen. You seriously stop mid-crawl and dance as soon as you hear music. It's so precious! We love you so much, monster!

What you did this month:
  • You are weighing about 17.5 pounds and roughly 29 inches tall.
  • You are wearing 9M and 6-12M clothes. You wear 12M in pajamas.
  • You are wearing size 3 diapers.
  • You nurse about 3 times a day-- noon, night, and once during the night. And eat solids at breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
  • Your favorite foods are White Cheddar Cheeto Puffs (you get giddy when you see the bag), Nature Valley PB bars, waffles with syrup, yogurt, smoothies, chicken, and fruit/veggie pouches.
  • You take a morning nap around 9 for about an hour. Then you take an afternoon nap around 1:30 for about 2 hours.
  • You go to bed around 7:30 at night and you've been waking up around midnight and 3/4. When you wake up at 3/4 we make you fuss yourself back to sleep. You wake in the mornings around 7/7:30.
  • We finally lowered your crib this month. You love to hold onto the side and jump when we come in to get you.
  • You have 4 teeth, 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom.
  • You're crawling all over the place and pulling up on everything. You can free-stand as well but then sit back down.  
  • You still prefer to be rocked to sleep. Although, I try to put you down while you're still slightly awake.
  • You have also started sleeping with a Glowworm and a silky blanket.
  • You and Wyatt are always together, especially since you can follow him around everywhere. When you wake up from nap and he's still asleep you are usually fussy until he gets up.
  • You love to be outside and fuss to get out there. Unfortunately the mosquitoes are still bad and they have been eating you alive. You also love bath time!
  • You've also become quite a jabber box. We're pretty sure you're saying kitty, which comes out "ki-ca" when you see the cats and you're also saying "mamama" and "dada".
  • When we tell you 'no' you start "crying" and fussing, it usually involves throwing your head back.
