One Month from the BIG DAY.

I can't believe in less than a month my lil baby will be 1. I can't believe how fast the past year has gone. It's been so fun watching her grow, change, and learn.. I miss that lil 7 lb 2 oz bean... but this 24+lb monster is entirely too much fun! :) I know it's a few days late, but here's Rosalie's 11 month update.

Rosalie Maggie
11 months old

WEIGHT: 24 lbs 6 oz. I know, she's huge lol
HEIGHT: 29 1/2 inches long

TEETH: 8 .. and she loves having them brushed!

CLOTHING SIZE: 12-18, 18 months

WORDS: Dada, Mom, Hey Dad, Dad Did, and I'm pretty sure we've been hearing BaBa and PaPa. Her mouth doesn't stop from the time she gets out of bed until the time she goes to bed.

MOBILITY: She is extremely strong on her legs.. pretty much running every where. She is FAST. She doesn't crawl unless it's to get in a small place to retrieve something.

FAVORITE GAMES: Rosalie loves playing jumpin-jumpin and pattycake. She LOVES playing tug-of-war with Buddy and his rope.

SLEEPING: For the first time since she was about 4 months old, Rosalie is FINALLY sleeping through the night. We broke that bad cycle. I didn't want to jinx it until she did the pattern for over a week, but it's been well over a week so I think it's safe to say. She's been going to bed between 8-8:30.. sleeps until 5:30-6:30, eats, and goes back to bed until 7:30-8:00. She takes a nice long morning nap... usually 2 hours.. and an afternoon nap that is usually half an hour to an hour long.

EATING: Oh boy.. Rosalie loves to eat. She has 4 meals a day.. plus a morning bottle, an afternoon bottle, and a bedtime bottle. Her favorite foods are: green beans and rice, sweet potatoes, bananas, and pears. We have introduced her to mashed potatoes, which she loves and loves to feed herself.. and same with sweet potato casserole. She also had her first cupcake the other day and loved it. She still won't drink from a sippy cup, but loves to drink from a big girl cup, so maybe we'll skip the whole sippy cup.

POTTY: Rosalie has been going to the same spot to go to the bathroom. She always has to be in the kitchen at the back door.. so we think with this consistency, that she's ready to start potty training. When she turns 1, the potty training is starting.

Rosalie is so bad, but she is learning what no means. The best part, it only works if it comes from mom's mouth :)
