Happy 11th Month, Maryclaire! Day 3 of 12 D.O.T

Happy 11 months, Maryclaire! Sweet girl, I just couldn't love you any more! At 11 months you,

1. I'm guessing you weigh about 16 lbs. You are in 6,9, and 12 month clothes. I moved you up to sz 3 diaper, but I think I going to have to move back down b/c you are just so skinny!

2. Still going to bed around 7:45 and sleeping 11-12 hours. You usually wake up 1-2 times a night, but you did sttn last night. Maybe you'll do it again soon! Fingers crossed! You nap twice a day around 10 and 3, usually one short nap and one long nap.

3. You are such a little piggy girl. You eat mostly table foods. I actually don't even remember the last jarred baby food you had. You love mixed veggies and bread. You are a messy eater and I might as well put you in the bath after a meal. You will drop the dogs little pieces of your food.

4. You started weaning yourself last week. We had began struggling with your interest in nursing about a month ago, and last week you were just done. I'm very sad...I was certainly not ready. I am still trying to nurse you in the morning and evening, but it's not going so well in the supply department. I feel like I failed you not making it a year. :(

5. You are just busy, busy, busy. We still have to put you in the playpen to keep you out of trouble. You like going on short walks in the stroller with me and brother. You have finally quit putting everything you pick up off the floor in your mouth.

6. You have started showing your temper at your brother and it is hilarious and sad at the same time. Y'all have started getting mad at each other over toys! I can't believe it starts this early!

7. You are usually shy to strangers and people you don't see often. Sometimes, you'll get very upset around men you don't know.

8. You understand much of what we say to you. You'll give kisses, wave bye bye, play peek a boo, and babble constantly. You say mama, bubba, night, night and I think blankee and doggie.

9. This month's picture was hard to get. You really didn't want to sit still in your chair.

And for day 3 of the 12 Days of Thanksgiving,
I think it's fitting to be thankful for YOU!


  1. What a cutie! Sorry about the BFing. Just keep at it...maybe it's just a little nursing strike? ((HUGS))

  2. Such a sweet picture! And you know, 11 months totally counts as a year! Everett did the same thing - weaned himself at 11 mo. Maybe there's something about that time. Curious what Pax will do this time around.
