Happy 11 months, Olive!

Age: 11 months
Weight: 22 lbs. (72nd percentile)
Height: ~29 inches (56th percentile)
Clothing: 12-18 months
Head circumference: ~18 1/2 inches (94th percentile)
Sleeping habits: Some nights she wakes once, some nights she wakes twice, some nights she wakes up screaming her head off and some nights she sleeps through the night. She still naps in my arms. She takes 2 naps per day.
Eating habits: Nursing & solids. She prefers when daddy feeds her.
Favorite activity: She loves getting in her sibling's dog beds. She loves the fridge & pantry. She loves to dance. She likes when others laugh and she laughs too. She enjoys throwing toys and clothes/towels out of their boxes or baskets.
Cutest Moment of the Month: When she makes funny faces and everyone laughs and she does it over and over again.

  • Walks holding on to furniture or other objects
  • Places one object after another into a container
  • Reaches back to pick up an object when sitting
  • Explores objects more thoroughly
  • Able to manipulate objects out of tight fitting spaces
  • Rolls a ball when asked
  • Becomes excited when a task is mastered
  • Acts frustrated when restricted
  • Shakes head for "no"
Firsts: She went to the Children's museum for the first time. She found her first leaf. She got her 1st pair of outdoor shoes. :)

Updates: Olive now has 7 teeth (4 on top, 3 on bottom).  She is cruising a lot more and taking more unassisted steps, but I have yet to record any. She understands 2 Spanish words (besito and sentate) and responds with kisses or sitting down.  :). She let her daddy rock her back to sleep 2 times this month. Yay! The moment I put her shoes on she heads for the door. She is now a screamer. She screams when she is excited and if you laugh she comtinues doing it. She gets so upset if she is told "No" or restricted from doing things, like getting into dog food or water. She loves walking outside. She loves watching people play instruments. Olive still only says Ba,BaBa or Ma.  She is the best.  This age is so much fun. I'm not quite ready for her to become toddler. I just want to bottle up some of these precious moments. I love this little girl so much!
