Eleven Month Update


 
Age:  Eleven Months

Weight:  18 Pounds & 5 Ounces

Height:  26 Inches

Milestones:  I am convinced that all parents feel this way, but my little lady is a certified rock star.  She has changed so much in the past month that it literally blows my mind & I swear we have a genius on our hands.  Waverly can wave bye-bye (although she actually does it towards herself) and does it ALL the time, wherever we are & to whoever walks by.  She also now picks up the phone - or really, any object she can get her hands on - puts it to her ear and talks on it.  It is seriously adorable, but at the same time, a sign that either we talk on the phone too much or we have a little socialite-to-be.  Probably both.  Just like last month, she continues to pull herself up but now she can walk with either her radio flyer or toy walker we got her.  Again, adorable & amazing.  We are pretty much obsessed with her and think she is the smartest 11 month-old there ever was.  Obviously. :)


Sleep:  Great news to report on the sleep situation!  Waverly Maye is still sleeping like a baby each & every night, from about 8 PM - 7:30 AM.  Since I got out of school last week, my goal to get her on a nap routine is well on its way.  After researching online (thank god for google & baby blogs), I decided on a 10:30 morning nap and a 3:00 afternoon nap.  I am seriously shocked at how well it worked.  This no-napping ninja has taken two hour & a half naps for three days in a row.  The whole "sleep begets sleep" thing really must be true, imagine that.  *Of course now that I have stated our success publicly, I am certain the whole entire thing will go to hell tomorrow.  Wish me luck.

Eating:  Waverly Maye's eating regimen looks pretty similar to last month's ... mainly mac & cheese, grilled cheese, and cheese quesadillas.  Sense a theme?  Anything with cheese is at the top of her list and I can't say that I blame her.  We also still start off most mornings with waffles & have snacks of yogurt, cheerios, & LOTS of fruit during the day.  This lady still does not like her veggies, any way I make them, so it looks like I will have to start getting creative in that arena.  Isn't there a book on that?  I think I need to look into it.

Favorite Moments:  At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I have to say it.  This month is the best YET again.  Waverly is such a little person now & she makes me everyone around her unbelievably happy.  It is amazing how one little lady can bring so much joy.  Our most memorable moment from this month was probably Waverly's first official vacation.  Traveling to Nashville with our trendy tot in tow was so much fun & I can't wait for many more memorable moments to come.

Worst Moments:  None, nada, nothing.  Waverly is past her "teething" & sleep issues and we are one happy little family. 

Extra Comments:  My baby girl is one month from being one.  ONE - one whole year!  I would be lying if I said that I won't feel a little sentimental on her big day, but overall, I will be full of joy.  I don't know how I could feel anything but that when at look at this healthy, smart, beautiful girl who is progressing by the day.  I never thought I could love anyone like I love her, and catch myself staring in awe at MY baby girl.  And I definitely think the best is yet to come.  (Well, until she takes after me and plans a party at our house her freshman year of high school.  But why think about that now?)
