11 Months

Chloe, it's April 28, 2011 and you are eleven months old today!
*this post is a day late because we were so busy yesterday.

You're still taking two naps a day. You sleep about 12 hours at night from 8pm to 8am.

You are still eating whatever we eat. You have a 4 oz. sippy cup of formula at breakfast and dinner with your meal. You have a little formula for morning (2oz.) and afternoon (4oz) snack (just before nap time). You are not using a bottle anymore and you no longer get formula at bedtime. You're growing up so fast. It makes me sad that I don't have to get a bottle ready for you anymore.

You have 12 teeth! Since last month you have gained 4 molars. It's insane. We brush them every night. I don't want them to rot out of your head. That's another reason we don't do the bedtime formula anymore. I do not want you going to sleep without brushing your teeth. You seem to enjoy getting your teeth brushed. I imagine that it feels good on your sore gums.

Twice in the last week, we've had people ask us if you're 15 months old. I keep wondering why on earth they would think that. Then I realize you have a mouth full of teeth so when you smile, you do look like a toddler.

You've stood a few times now without holding on to anything. But as soon as you discover that you have no support, you sit down. You like to push things around the house. You push the dining room chairs, the laundry basket and you try to push the nightstands. You have a month to learn to walk before you're one. Will you do it? I don't know.

You still love to point at things and have us name them. In the morning when you wake up, it's like you've never seen your room before. You get so excited and point at everything while you say 'oooohhhh!!'

Your latest 'word' is 'oohta.' After listening to you say it for a few days, I wonder if it's your version of 'What's that?' Your dad and I say 'What's that' everytime you point to something and then we answer. You seem to say 'oohta' when you point to things. Or, maybe it's just baby babble. Either way, it's soooo stinkin' cute.

We are planning your first birthday. I'm really excited and nervous. I don't want to go overboard but I want to do something special. You won't remember it but I will and last year we were cooped up in a hospital on your birthday. I have to make up for it. haha.

You fascinate us, Miss Chloe. We love you.

Showing your dad all the fun stuff at Google.
