Eleven Months Old
My Appearance: Well we are still on the road so I don’t have the exact numbers on what I weigh and how tall I am. I think I have gained some weight because when I take a bath my belly looks pretty round and I also think I have grown because I can get into almost anything I want. I got a hair cut a couple weeks ago and since then people say it has a tint of red to it. I guess I get this from Mommy because her hair turns a little red in the sunlight. I am starting to fill out a little this month even though some of my pants fall off of me when I standing. My thighs, arms, and belly are all a little thicker then last month.
Milestones: The day after my ten month birthday I decided that it was time to walk and I haven’t slowed down since then. I am so good at walking now that I can almost run. I think that walking is a blast and can’t believe that it took ten months to figure it out. Just a couple weeks ago I figured out how to stand up by myself, I no longer need help from furniture to get up. I get lots of practice doing this because I still fall a lot. I also got my first cold this month. This was not fun and I felt really sick for about 5 days. Mommy and Daddy gave me lots of cuddle time and that helped me feel better. I got my 7th tooth this month, this time it was a bottom tooth.
Daily Routine: My routine is not much of a routine anymore. Mommy and I are staying with G-ma and G-pa while Daddy works up in Fort Collins and things are a little wild at their house. Some times I have to take my naps in the car or at someone’s house but I always end up back at their house to go to bed. I have had a lot of fun trying to play with all the Christmas decorations and have broken a few of G-ma’s things. I love to play with the Christmas tree, there are so many shiny and sparkly thing on it I just can’t resist it. I also love when my cousin Hadley comes over to play. I can keep up with her a little better now and so we have fun playing together.
Special Events: Well we are still traveling and so things have been a little different but I can adjust pretty well. This month has been really special because I have got to see all of my extended family. I have spent time will all my Grandma’s and Grandpa’s, Aunts and Uncles, and even my Great Grandma’s and Grandpa’s. I have had fun being the center of attention and really know how to keep the attention on me. I have met Santa Clause twice this month and gotten some pictures with him. I was not to sure about it the first time and then the second time I really didn’t want to see him and started crying so Mommy would take me back. Tonight is my first Christmas Eve and I got to open a present. I didn’t really know what was going on but Daddy helped show me what to do. I had fun and Mommy and Daddy said I would get to open a lot more presents tomorrow on Christmas.
