Can you not just imagine me telling Sydney "Say cheese!" and this being her response? So funny. She only sat still long enough for me to snap 4 photos this month, and this was the only decent one out of the lot.
So, 11 months. Wow.
She started eating lots of different foods this month, and is starting to transition to table food. Oh my gosh, last night, she ate ALL of her Spanish rice, quite a few black eyed peas and about half of my turkey burger (just the patty). She loves loves LOVES meat (surprisingly enough as I know a lot of babies do not dig it at all). She will eat the pepperoni and sausage off of our pizza, and she loves meatballs and taco meat! Puffs and anything in a pouch are still her favorites though.
She goes to bed around 7:30 and will take 2 naps when she's home with us on the weekend, one around 9:45 a.m. and another around 2 p.m. When she's at daycare, they only do one nap in the afternoon and boy is she tired when she gets home! We get home around 5:45 on weeknights and she's getting in the bath by 7, so it's pretty rushed to get her fed and get a little bit of playtime in before bed. Needless to say, we eat super quick meals these days. If I had my act together, I would prep a few meals on the weekends that I could just pop in the Crock Pot or heat up really quick when we get home, but you know, I don't think that far ahead.
5 teeth now!
Still not walking, although she's getting closer and closer.
Oh, and she's in a phase where she cries when Steven leaves her at daycare. I'm just glad I don't have to drop her off, or I'd be crying too.
She's still a Mama's girl, much to Steven's dismay, but really just likes to be held by anyone who will hold her. She plays this game where she'll go back and forth between the two of us like she can't make up her mind.
She loves Peekaboo and playing with her shape-sorting blocks.
She gives tight hugs when she feels like it, and it's the cutest thing ever. I call them my sweet baby hugs and I just can't get enough of them.
I do have some rather big news, but I'm going to hold off on spilling the beans for just a little while longer. It includes big changes here at the blog (and hopefully more blogging in general). Ooh, I love keeping secrets!
...and no, my news does not include any more babies...
