11 Months!

Tell me it isn't so! One more month and my sweet baby will be 1!

-This month Claire all of sudden became very interested in talking. Don't get me wrong, this girl blabs up a storm, but this month brought some real words! Here is what we can make out so far: mama, dada, dog, book, and sometimes a slightly slurred version of 'done'. Daddy was reading her "The Wonderful Sounds Mr. Brown Can Do", and we were surprised to find her repeating "boom, boom" back to us when we read the lightning page.

-Claire made the 2nd move of her lift this month. Poor girl, not even one and she's already moved twice! Hopefully this one will last a little longer.

-More teeth finally made their appearance. We wondered if maybe she was destined to only have her bottom two until after her 1st birthday, but we were surprised to find four teeth come through within a week and half! Oh yes you read that right, 4 teeth in a little over a week. Needless to say it was a long couple nights of teething, but we made it through.

-We've been weaning off bottles in anticipation of Claire starting whole milk at a year, and we are now down to just one bottle before bed, and sippy cups for the rest of the meals.

-Claire is wearing size 18 month (some 24 month) clothing and just moved up to size 5 diapers this week.
A little birthday party outfit preview. I was trying to get a picture for her invite, but she was not having it.

-She loves cruising along the furniture but is still pretty reluctant to attempt steps without our hands.
