Happy 11 Months!

IMG_0535Happy 11 Months Ellison Jakeh!  It’s pretty hard to believe that we are knee deep (pun intended) in her first birthday party planning.  It literally feels like yesterday when we had the amazing experience of meeting her. IMG_0506 We have no stats from this month, but the poor thing got skinny during her 2 weeks with the dreaded flu.  Now she looks really long and thin.IMG_0501 Thankfully, she is back to eating a ton this week!  She’s finally getting braver with textures and enjoying more table food along with her purees.  Still a great nurser although she moves around a ton until my milk lets down and that drives me batty. :)IMG_0503Her big personality is such a joy to watch!  She loves to wave, hold her hands up for “so big” and has a great wiggle when she dances.  She claps all the time and gives the best kisses.  She says ma-ma and da-da and ba-ba for brother or baby.  She’ll say "uh” when I say uh-oh.  We’ve been signing with her for awhile, but she has yet to be really interested in doing any of the signs for more, milk, or all done.
IMG_0591 She definitely knows what she wants and doesn’t have much patience when she doesn’t get it.  She loves Owen’s micro-machines (really tiny cars) and won’t have anything to do with the bigger ones she can’t swallow.  She loves to hold my phone, but prefers the screen to be on, not black.  Once in her high chair you better have food ready that instant for her.IMG_0629Look at all that hair!  Haha.  Ok, there’s not much yet but the back is finally starting to fill in.  There’s hope that she won’t be bald forever!IMG_0586I thought she might be walking by her birthday.  But with the 2 week stint of not much moving, that might not be the case.  She loves to walk with her walker toy or pushing Owen’s big truck.  And when holding our fingers, she doesn’t lean on them nearly as much.  But she hasn’t attempted to take any steps yet away from the furniture. IMG_0513 I think she’s getting ready to drop her morning nap.  I was not ready for this as Owen didn’t drop his until around 18 months.  But a few mornings this week she’s gone without it and been fine.  It would be nicer to get a slightly longer afternoon nap out of her and to have freedom to do things all morning, but I’ll miss my alone time with Owen.IMG_0527She adores her pink monkey, Mimi and cuddles and gives it kisses while in bed.  She’s definitely not a cuddler though and prefers to be put right into bed instead of any rocking.IMG_0546 Praise Jesus!  IMG_0519Such a fun month getting to know this sweet little girl even more.  Cannot wait to celebrate her soon!blog-signature-1
