11 Month Update

Eleven months have passed since our beautiful baby entered the world.  The time has gone by so fast.  We are so blessed to have her in our lives.  Everyday, she gets more and more personality.

* She is growing and changing everyday.  She just loves to explore and learn new things.
* She is crawling everywhere and getting into everything.

*Anne has 6 teeth now.  Three on the bottom and 3 on top.  Number 7, I believe, is on the way.

* She started to really enjoy standing and cruising around the room on her walking toy.  It's fun to watch her learn these new skills.

*She can climb up steps now.  She hasn't mastered down yet though.
Let's go shopping, mom.
She is "walking" and climbing now.
 Queen of Peace Peace Fest -- Anne got to dunk Grandpa in the Dunk Tank.
 Anne introducing papa to her friends.
 She got to try her first Blueberry donut at the Blueberry Fest. -- Loved it!
We stopped by Ben's Pretzel in the mall.  She ate almost an entire Pretzel Stick by herself. -- Loved it.

Weight: 16 lbs, 4 oz
Height: 26.5 inches

Eating: She loves to eat.  There isn't many foods that we haven't fed her that she hasn't liked.  She prefers to feed herself over purees now.  She still nurses around the clock, getting up several times a night.  She loves to feed herself peas.  If we will her tray with various food, she will push the food out of the way and eat all the peas first then continue with the rest.
So far:
Thumbs Up: sweet potatoes, green beans, applesauce, avocado, peas, squash, carrots, bananas, whole wheat cereal, guava, watermelon, pasta with sauce, meatballs, yogurt with any fruit, BBQ anything, kidney beans, eggplant, meatballs, bread, hot pretzels, hummus

Thumbs Down: oatmeal cereal, spinach, peaches, any pureed meats (but she will eat chicken right off the bone cut into pieces)
Sleeping: She still nurses around the clock, waking up every 3-4 hours during the night.  I hoping this habit breaks soon.  We are trying a sleep routine of diaper change, bedtime snack (usually nursing), then a bedtime story, then getting rocked to sleep.  This month has been rough.  She has started to not want to sleep without us present.
