eleven months!

Avery is 11 months-old today!


This past month (and especially the last week or so) has been filled with spurts of physical and cognitive developments.


Avery now has two teeth (with a third barely popping through) and is a girl on the move (no walking yet, but keen on every other mode of transportation). Just yesterday I went to plug my phone in in the bedroom and when I came out she was on all fours on top of the side table (I’m assuming she climbed on top of a pillow to the couch and then to the table)! I quickly came to her rescue, but I was also really proud!


She’s much more attentive these days too, noticing birds and the neighborhood cats that like to hang out in our side yard.


We also think she has a word for Bailey but aren’t quite sure what it is yet.


Sleep has been MUCH better this month (phew!) and she’s trying all sorts of new foods. In fact, last night we went to Ballard Pizza Co. and I have never seen an infant devour arugula and prosciutto with such enthusiasm!


“Eating the Alphabet? That sounds like a challenge I’d like to accept…”

One month left till she’s officially a toddler? It doesn’t seem possible. Happy 11 months, baby girl. We love you.

P.S. – Guys, the back yard is 99% done and it looks gooooood – can’t wait to take photos and share!

    Our son’s first word was dog, he said “dah”. My husband and I treat our dog like our first-born so we weren’t offended that it wasn’t Mama or Dada ๐Ÿ™‚

    how has the teething going?
    has she been really cranky?
    Lilly On-Ling got all 4 1st incisors
    within 4 weeks of each other.
    I think her 1st molars are coming through now.

      Teething seems to be going better this time around, but the first two teeth were tough! I’m not looking forward to molars… ๐Ÿ™‚
