11 Months Old   Leave a comment

ImageMillie Louise is 11 months old today. I cannot believe that her first birthday is just one month away! My thoughts keep going back to how I was feeling this time last year… I know most people are uncomfortable during the last month of pregnancy, but from 36 weeks on, I felt GREAT. I was very excited to meet  my little girl. I was excited to hold her, to see her. I wondered whether or not she would have hair. I wondered how big (or little) she would be. And now, here we are 11 months later. Millie has changed so much over the past months. She pulls herself into a standing position on all of the furniture now. Nothing is safe in our house if it’s in Millie’s reach. The girl has a ton of toys, but finds coasters, remotes, books, and gunk on the floor MUCH more interesting. She likes to play in Major’s water bowl. She likes to open her mouth when Major walks by so that he can lick her in the mouth (she is so gross). She burps and farts like an adult. She still sleeps through the night like a champ (7 pm to 7am) but she doesn’t like her naps as much as she did before. Millie says hi, dada and, just today, she started trying to say dog. She waves hi and bye. She pounds her hand on the high chair tray when she wants more food (oh, and she is feeding herself now, too!). She LOVES babies (her little friends Luke— from church— and Jonathan and Cara— from the babysitter’s house— are her best buds). She wears size 3 diapers and mostly 12 month clothes. Millie squirms when we go to change her diaper and gives us BIG smiles when we first go into her room in the morning. She is a sweet, sweet baby and I am going to enjoy every moment of this next month as we quickly come to the close of her first, wonderful year.
