Argh...posting this almost a month late. I wrote this several weeks ago, then Blogger wouldn't let me load a picture so I gave up. Today, it magically lets me load a picture. Same computer, same everything. Dumb blogger!
She's eleven months old! I almost let this slip by without a picture, since it was a crazy week. We can't have that.
At eleven months, my sweet Amelia:
-pulls up and will cruise all over, with a bull-in-a-china-shop technique. nothing stops her, and if it tries, she will muscle through it. she's pretty awesome like that.
-when asked, will find one of her two favorite baby dolls and give it a kiss.
- eats EVERYTHING. and a lot of it. bread, cheese, and apples are favorites.
-still nurses 3-4 times a day. i will be pretty sad when she's done with this part of babyhood. she's so quick about it anymore that it won't change the rhythm of the day too much when she decides she won't sit still for it. this is starting to happen a couple of times a week. she's had zero formula, which is pretty great.
-weighs about 17 pounds and is still wearing a size 2 diaper. funny girl.
-has mastered the sippy cup, which has greatly increased the peace inside our minivan.
-refuses to have anything on her feet, ever. socks and shoes are her least favorite things. too bad it's FREEZING outside.
-when told "NO", will just laugh at you...oh this girl. this is new for me. all i had to do with the boys was look at them sideways and they'd cry cry cry.
-can't get enough of her crazy brothers! she's especially sweet on Marcus...plants big juicy kisses on him whenever she can!
-completely attached to her "dottie"--her little blankie. Dottie was in the wash the other day and she gave me the DIRTIEST look when i tried a replacement...she was not fooled and also not amused. Luckily, I was able to contact the company and two more are coming in the mail! Wahoo!
-has started being a teensy big apprehensive about (some) strangers. Mostly men. That's just fine.
