Maggie: Eleven Months


Measurements:

Weight: 18-19? lbs
Length: about 30in
Feeds: nurses 3-4 times a day (some feedings are replaced with a formula bottle); 1 squeeze pouch at meals + several tablespoons of whatever we're having for dinner; occasional puffs/cheerios/crackers for as a distraction/entertainment
Diapers:  Tots Bots, Bum Genius 4.0s, Thirsties pockets and AIO, and Bottom Bumpers OS.  Size 3 in disposables (at night)
Clothes:  12 month and 12-18 months; unpacking the 18 months
Shoes: none, but we had her feet measured at size 3.5
Teeth: two bottoms; two tops (teething for those lateral incisors)


Firsts:

2/13/15 Trip to Savannah & met cousin Ellie
2/17/15 goes from laying to sitting (but only in her crib!)
2/18/15 Ash Wednesday & received ashes
2/24/15 says  "Ike" (Spike) and "dg" (dog)
2/26/15 started crawling a few little steps
3/1/15 full on steady crawler
3/2/15 says, "Hi" and (backward) waves when she sees people, even in picture frames


Milestones:

We had to lower the mattress in Maggie's crib. She's sitting up and pulling up.

We've dropped one of her nursing sessions during the day. We're down from 4-5 to 3-4. Depending on how well she's eating I may or may not give her a bottle mid day.

Maggie continues to be an excellent eater. She wants nothing to do with puffs or baby food, she wants what we're having.

In the morning once we're in the kitchen making breakfast, Maggie will SCREAM for a piece of bacon. And promptly eat the entire piece. 

She's right on the brink of using her baby sign language. She's having a hard time disguising between "eat" and "drink" but let's be real they're basically the same.

Maggie is very good at playing by herself. She spends lots of time exploring the playroom and house. This really annoys Evie.

Forget the fancy toys, I put a few blocks or random toys in an Amazon box and Maggie is entertained for a while pulling things out of the box. She claps and squeals with excitement and pride for "finding" treasures in the box.

She is phasing out of the two equal sized naps into one long and one short nap. She doesn't have a strict schedule. She's very go with the flow, but when she's done she's DONE.

Other than crawling and pulling herself up to her knees, Maggie hasn't developed many new skills this month but she has mastered many of the ones she's gained in the last few months.

Likes:

Pulling things out of bags or boxes
Eating: shoes, paper, paper towels, and baby wipes
Her big sister. Absolutely adores her.
Waving to Dada & snuggling with Mama
Playing with Spike and petting him very gently 



Dislikes:

waiting for her piece of bacon
waiting for us to get her out of her high chair when she's done eating
pinching her finger in the drawers
when I walk away from her (if she crawls away she's fine)
when Evie puts blankets over Maggie's head

We Are....

...vacuuming every day because Maggie finds random junk in the carpet to eat
...wondering where the year went. Seriously, her birth seems like yesterday.
...loving the bond the two girls are developing.
...not sure what to do with her crazy hair.
...excited for her first birthday party!


Maggie Clare, over and out.

  1. She is adorable. You definitely have super verbal kiddos. I understand the phase of vacuuming all the time. Helena will give me bits she finds on the floor or better yet put them in her mouth. I always joke that she has a healthy diet of broken crayon bits. Glad to see you having such a great experience with these girls of yours.
