11 months

Mitt is 11 months old!

  • She weighs 14 lbs. 11 oz officially a few days ago; but tonight after eating a huge dinner she weighed 15 pounds! whohoo!  
  • She wears size 2 diaper, size 1 shoe, size 9-12 month clothes (except in the waist)
  • Still wakes up every 4 hours at night (except on our recent beach trip -- see previous post)
  • Finally started eating Cheerios; but is a very picky eater when it comes to baby food: only likes peas, yogurt, chicken noodle dinner, turkey and rice dinner, garden vegetables by gerber, and a few others.  Yogurt is by far her favorite.  And I don't feel guilty about it because she needs the calories!  
  • I am still breastfeeding.  I introduced the bottle (attempting 1 bottle of breastmilk per day) and she detests the bottle!  We are struggling to get 2 oz down her using a bottle, when I know she can drink up to 4 oz or more at one feeding.  I was hoping to start weaning her this month, but she put the brakes on that.  So I will give her the summer and attempt weaning when school starts again.  I'm not one of those moms who breastfeeds til they start kindergarten.  ugh.  I give all my kids up to 1 year and then I take the boobs back!  
  • She has a severe attachment issue.  She will start fussing or screaming if I am not in her sights at all times.  I'm getting better at ignoring this because I would never get anything done, but wondering when she is going to relax some.  My other 2 were definitely more calm and content.  And then there are times that I love how attached she is...and I wonder if we'll still be like that when she's older.  She also seems to be more of a Daddy's girl....ok ok...i'll give him one!  ;)  
She is NOT crawling, walking, pulling-up, or standing.  Or attempting any of those.  She can sit very well but is not content with just sitting in the floor (starts fussing).  She likes to sit in the high chair where she can everything!  #busybody

She loved the beach, she loves baths, she loves dancing and music, and she loves to play Pat-a-cake!  She can wave "bye-bye" and clap!

I am very anxious to go to her next cardiology appointment in July to see how her heart is doing and see if the VSD has closed.  *fingers crossed*  :)
