11 months! Only 1 month until the big O-N-E. That went waaaaaay too fast.
Let's see....what's new this month. Norah isn't walking yet, though she has begun cruising along tables/furniture. And, she will occasionally walk while pushing something (a kiddie stroller for example).
She loves to play "peek-a-boo" and does several signs/hand motions....waves "hi" and "bye bye", signs "more" and "all done", throws her hands in the air when someone says "how big is norah?....sooo big!", blows kisses (sorta), and claps.
Oh and just this week she started brushing her hair with her little hairbrush. And she dances to music. Now that's a milestone! ;)
She will give us the sweetest hugs, which include her patting our backs. And she gives the most slobbery of kisses.
She loves dogs and kicks her legs with excitement when she sees one (daily at the bus stop).
She loves to hold baby dolls and often pats their backs as well.
She babbles a lot, but the only real word I'm confident she has and actually means anything with is "mama". She occasionally says "dada", but it's more sporadic.
She eats pretty much everything we do, no more baby food. Her favorite foods seems to be yogurt, blueberries, and cheese.
Despite my best efforts with daily consistent pumping, I was unable to pump enough for what she was needing....thankfully, she finally started taking the formula. I'm still so disappointed about this, because I had hoped to breastfeed her until at least a year. Then when she refused to nurse anymore, I had hoped that I could at least pump enough for what she needed until 12 months. Very sad to me, but it is what it is.
Sweet girl is not a great napper, but that might be my fault because we are often out and about due to the big kids' stuff so lately our lives aren't super conducive to a great nap schedule. Regardless, she seems to be rested & happy enough. Although, the past few weeks have been a bit rough for her...she was diagnosed with a double ear infection a couple of weeks ago (coincidence that her getting sick happened when she stopped getting any breastmilk?), and I went in today for a follow-up and discovered that one of her ears is still infected, or possibly re-infected. So, more meds for her.
Happy 11 months, Norah...you have an infected ear. You don't seem too bothered by it.
She has 8 teeth...4 on top, 4 on bottom. It's so funny to me, because her big sissy didn't have ANY teeth until she was 1.
She's our little shark. ;)
We love our Norah girl!
