Happy 11 Months Lucy

Dear Lucy,

     I can’t believe I am writing your last monthly update letter before you turn a year old. Just one short month left before the big first birthday is here.  This month just flew by!

   This month you have fine tuned many of the developmental milestones you started doing last month. You are able to pull up and get down very easily (thank goodness, life got some much easier when you were able to get down from standing gracefully). You are crawling superfast! You are chatty chatty chatty and say “what’s that” no less then a hundred times a day. You repeat a  lot of words but don’t have any new ones this month that you use on a daily basis.

   You are still a little foodie and have tried and liked everything you have had this month. You still only dislike streamed green beans and mashed potatoes. Your favorite foods are mac and cheese (and confetti mac with lots of vegetables), brocooli (you are so my kiddo), peas, blueberries, whole wheat pancakes and waffles, peaches, pears, pizza, and ice cream. We went to a church bazaar over the weekend and you threw the biggest fit when the ice cream was all gone. You literally turned all the way around in your stroller and screamed with huge crocodile tears all the way to the car because you wanted more ice cream.  You are only taking one bottle a day (before bed), you drink your “milk” our of your sippy cup in the morning and then drink water throughout the day. You prefer to have a splash of juice in your water just like Liam does. I don’t think we are going to have any problem getting rid of your bottle when you turn one because you are not attached to it at all.

You are only taking a morning nap maybe once or twice a week now but always take a solid afternoon nap around 1-3 and then are in bed for the night around 7:15 and get up around 7:30. You love to sleep with your head on your bumper, I guess you are trying to tell us you want a pillow. You wake up every morning when Dada turns on the shower to get ready for work but usually play in your crib for a solid 30 minutes before we go downstairs to start our day.

You LOVE cookie monster!!! You have a little cookie monster book that you have loved for a little whole now, you just light up and crap and smile the whole time we read it. Last weekend we were at the store and we spotted a little stuffed cookie monster and I handed it to you to see what you would do. Well….you hugged that cookie monster so tight and had the biggest smile ever on your face. Needless to say cookie came home with us and you have been inseparable ever since.

You have become quite the "daddy's girl"this month, you are crazy for your Dada and get SO excited when he comes home from work. You immediately start yelling "DADA!!!" and then do just about anything to get his attention. You are so ticklish (especially on your neck and palms), we take advantage of this because you have the best laugh, you are so loud! You like playing peak-a-boo...with random things like your dress or an empty plate. 

You are wearing size 18-24 month…this created quite an issue this month because you outgrew almost all of your clothes and I had to break into the box I had put always for, what I thought would be, next year…..and you very well may have worn boys Christmas pajamas to bed … more then once. You are right around 25 pounds and just growing growing growing.

Happy 11 months Lucy, I can't believe you are going to be a year old next month.

She is getting so big and beautiful. She really is her own little person.
