All About Amelia - 11 months old!

Amelia, you're 11 months old!!

We have no clue how much you weigh right now. We'll find out at your next doctor's appointment. Daddy says you've outgrown your car seat, so we'll be shopping for a new one soon!

You're wearing size 3 diapers.

You're wearing 12 month clothing and size 4 shoe. I bought you a few pairs of shoes and you've actually kept them on your feet!

You're sleeping 12 hours every night. You take a morning and afternoon nap that range from 1-2 hrs each. We love those sleepy eyes right after you wake up!

You're taking 8-10 ounces of formula, four times a day. You eat baby food at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We've added ramen noodles, fried rice, and yogurt to the list of things you love. You can hold your own bottle, but usually want us to hold it for you.

You think it's funny to spit while eating your food. Mommy only thinks it's funny when Daddy is feeding you! :)

Daddy taught you to say YUM-YUM. If hungry, you will immediately start saying YUM-YUM as soon as you see food! It's so cute. You started getting a little impatient, so we taught you to sign "more". I'm amazed at how fast you learn things!

This pic is of you watching the "show" at Kobe Japanese Steak House. This is where we learned that you love fried rice!

You've started waving hi and bye-bye without us prompting you. We walk into Target and you start waving at the first person you see. We walk out of Walmart and you wave bye-bye to the employee by the door. It's hilarious!

You've started blowing kisses to people when asked.

We'll say "patty-cake" and you stop whatever you're doing and start clapping.

You have four top teeth coming through!

You LOVE bath time. You start trying to get into the bathtub as soon as you see the water...usually with your clothes still on your body.

You continue to pull up on everything. We've seen you let go and stand on your own for about 20 seconds, but you have no interest in taking any steps.

You can also bend over and pick things up while standing.

We think you're the coolest kid on the planet.

We can't believe you're only one month away from being 1 YEAR OLD, sweet girl!!

We love you,
Daddy & Mommy

Almost a year; crazy! I love the pic of her sitting next to the owl and waving. Precious expression on her face!

Can't believe it! Time has flown by - precious baby girl.

She sure IS a cool kid! I love her little hairstyle - it's so chic! Amelia is awesome!

She is so very precious. I am emotional thinking about all those months and months of waiting and praying for her...and now she has been with us for almost a year!!! What a JOY she is!!! God is so good! I love all the pics!!! Isn't it funny how they are with their "more more" signs and how they want food?!?! AK is a force to be reckoned with when she is hungry!!! Of course that's kinda like her momma!!! :)

Hi, I found you from Life with the Edwards, and now I'm happily following. You have such a beautiful little girl--my favorite pics are the ones where she's wearing the large glasses and where she's sitting in the shopping cart (waving hello to everyone in sight). Isn't it great that you can record everything about her through blogging? (I've been doing this with my little two year-old too!) Have a great weekend!

What a great post!!! I just had to click over because Zoƫ is 11-months-old since yesterday. *SIGH* I cannot believe we're planning a birthday party already!

So what are your birthday party plans?! Z's party is the 23rd and we're going to make homemade potato soup and pumpkin cupcakes. It'll be fall-inspired (how original, I know! LOL! But it's my favorite time of the year and I've always wanted a fall theme!).

I need to do a 11-month post. BTW I LOVE Amelia's clothes and where did you get that super cute owl pillow?!

Oh my, this sweet girl is just getting too big! I cannot believe she will be one soon. Time, please slow down!

I just love reading about all the new things she is learning and doing. I so wish we were in the same town so I could see her and love on her!
