11 months old!

once again... i can't believe it! i know i sound like a broken record. i always swore i wouldn't be one of "those" mothers. well, i've turned into "that" mother. i'm sorry. :) it just blows my mind that olivia will be a year old in exactly one month.

she is wearing all 12 month clothes now. not b/c they fit just real well but b/c it's hot outside and all the summer clothes we have are 12 months! as of last night she is officially on table food. i used all of my baby food last night so table food is a necessity now. i guess i need to start cooking! she still has no teeth. i guess we'll celebrate her first bday before she gets teeth! she had her first taste of liquor last weekend thanks to her gg. (i told mom not to feed her at jackie's shower. i walked through the kitchen and she was feeding her fruit. i said, "mom, i told you not to feed her." mom, "but it's just fruit." me, "but it's soaked in champagne!!!" soooo, that explains why she liked it so much! she also took a 3 hour nap that afternoon!) she's "cruising" along furniture. she'll let go and stand for about 2.5 seconds before falling. she took her second big fall this morning when she fell off my bed. she's talking all the time saying "dada", the occasional "mama" and very rarely "baba" (bottle). she's sleeping about 12 hours a night. it'd be AWESOME if i could keep her up past 6:30ish at night!! other than the occassional fussiness she's a great baby and i wouldn't trade her for the world!! we've been through a lot this year and we've come out so much stronger; both of us (she just doesn't know it yet)!!

happy 11 month bday, olivia!!


  1. Happy 11 months!! What a big girl!

  2. Awww! So cute! We enjoyed seeing you and O today. Especially DS. He liked getting to first base with your daughter. :)

  3. I want to know how you're getting her to sleep for 12 hours a night!? With ours coming any day, I want to learn this secret.

    On a separate note, I ordered some of the books and they came in already! Wow. Thanks for the recommendation.

  4. Thank you for your suggestion! I've been meaning to tell you...Anniston still doesn't have any teeth either! I've heard the longer before they come the better, though, so I guess it's a good thing! Olivia is precious, and I love her dress! Oh, and I can relate to wishing she could stay up later. Anniston sleeps 12 hours too (well, lately we've had some 11 hour nights...not complaining though!), and I have to push her to stay up until 7. She would gladly go down earlier too!
