I’m stunned we’re at this point:

eleven months old

(month one, month two, month three, month four, month five, month six, month seven, month eight, month nine, month ten)

She looks stunned, too:

eleven months old

weight: 23 pounds 5 ounces
length: 30 inches tall
head: 18.75 inches
hair: thick and curly

Her mimicking skills in the last month have become much more refined. She can now clap, show us where her hair is, blow kisses, give kisses, point to things, stick her tongue out:

eleven months old

and best of all, declare a touchdown:

eleven months old

She says mama, dada, doggie, go, stop, hi, bye, and no.

In fact, right after I took this picture, she yelled NOOOOO at me.

When we catch her doing something she isn’t supposed to be doing (which is often), she’ll grunt and yell nooooooo before we can even say a word. In addition to disciplining herself, she even disciplines the dog when she barks. It’s really convenient.

We’ve all caught a break from teething this month and it’s been soooooo nice.

I am struggling to get her to use a sippy cup. She just has no interest and assumes all sippy cups are toys. It’s beyond frustrating.

Nothing about her seems like a baby anymore. She wants to feed herself. She squirms to get down and roam free. She wants to play and do things on HER schedule.

That includes walking, which I KNOW she can do, she just WON’T.

Maybe she’ll walk for me on Christmas.
