11 Month Update

Avery, you are 11 months old TODAY! I seriously can't believe it's been almost a year since you were born because time has just flown by. It's cliche, but ohmygoodness it's so true. So here's what you're up to:

You're pretty much just eating table food now, but we still send jars with you to daycare. (Except now the only way you'll let someone feed you is if you have your own finger foods in front of you so you can share in the feeding responsibility.)

You love Cheerios more than anything. You even know where we keep them, so you point to them anytime you feel you should have them.

You're not a picky eater though; we put it in front of you, you eat it.

You're wearing 12-18 month clothes and size 3 diapers.
You still have just two bottom teeth, and your top two teeth are trying their darnedest to come in, but they are stubborn. Just like you! They'll probably break the gums any day now.

One of your favorite things to do is to lean toward someone, have them lean in a little toward you, and then bump heads. It's so stinkin cute! I have no idea where it came from.

You crawl fast. You're not walking on your own, but you love to walk holding onto our hands or the furniture.

Your favorite phrase is "uh oh," and you love it when we play peekaboo. You play "How big is Avery?" and pat-a-cake, and you love to dig and play in your big toy box. (Oh, and Grandma and Granddaddy taught you to moo at your toy cow. Haha!)
You apparently value good hygiene as well. You hate to get out of the bath, and you throw a fit when I take away your toothbrush. On a better note, you thoroughly enjoy both activities during the fact.

You really love your sippy cups. Pretty soon you won't be using a bottle at all anymore! (Or formula-- yay!)
 Your clogged tear duct didn't ever fix itself (your left eye did, but the right one is still pretty bad), so we're taking you next week to get that fixed. I'm already dreading the procedure, but your eye will be so much better!
 This month has been relatively uneventful as far as milestones go, but your little personality is totally coming out! You love exploring and testing the boundaries. You love your puppies and us. You've gotten super clingy over the past few weeks (especially when you're around other people), but you still love to do things yourself. I can't believe in one more month you'll be a year old! Better get planning that party!

We love you!
Mommy and Daddy

Happy 11 months!! It does go by too fast!

Emily doesn't love Cheerios as much as when she was Avery's age, but it has to be the plain kind.

And Emily does that lean in head bump thing too! So cute!!!!

Oh, hope the clogged tear duct gets fixed up. I don't want to know what the procedure entails.

Happy party planning! We just finally finished with the 3rd celebration. Whew!

You will love this next year! Okay, too many exclamations!! =p

Yay Avery! I love her in those little jeans. Where did you get those stickers? I vividlly remember my dad bribing the boys as babies to walk down the hall...towards a cheerio!
