Officialy countdown to Vida’s first birthday has begun! It’s amazing how time flies. On her 11 month birthday we got her ears pierced! The earrings make her eyes sparkle even more.
AGE | 10 & 11 months
STATS | She seems heavier, I would say weighs almost 20 lbs now. She’s still “petite.” She can fit into some 6 month clothes still and is starting to fill in 12 mo size clothes.
WORDS | She finally says “mama” but I’m not sure if she know’s that means me haha.
FAVORITE FOOD | Anything we have, she wants. Crakers, muffins, yogurt, beans are among her favorite. She likes to eat the avocado and turkey out of my sandwiches. She can eat cherrios and puffs for hours. She’s still on formula but I’m going to start to transition her into almost milk as soon as I finish her last batch of formula.
FAVORITE THINGS | Declan, hands down. They have a sort of language and they just crack each other up. She loves playing with her comb and remotes; basically anything that isn’t a toy. She loves sitting in her high chair and snacking while she watches us.
LEAST FAVORITE THINGS | Lately, she likes to fall asleep with me and Declan in the bed, then I transfer her to her crib. But if I put her in her crib before she’s snoozing, forget it.
SIGNATURE MOVES | She’s very expressive with her hands. Waving, pointing, “presenting” – she’s nailed waiving hello and goodbye. The other day she over heard someone say goodbye and she just started waving at them.
It’s bittersweet to see her reach the end of the monthly birthdays; but I couldn’t be happier to see her reach her first birthday. She’s such a spark of joy in our lives. Happy late 10 months and happy 11 months, Vida Magnolia.
