Well Lyla Faith I am a little behind on your 11 month picture and update but we finally got it done today...What you have been up to;
~You weight about 22 pounds and are about 21 1/2 inches long..I think you are a little petite thing when I see other babies but you are a really good eater so I don't worry.
~Size 3 diapers
~Yay!! You finally are sleeping through the night (we got off a little during the break but it only took one night and you were back on) You still fight going to sleep but once you wear yourself out you finally give it up and pass out. You always used to sleep on your tummy but here lately not only are you sleeping on your back, side, looks like your head some nights because you are from one side of your crib to the other...I hear you are a wild sleeper like I was "am" so I guess you inherited that from me...ha! "Don't worry I won't let your friends make you sleep on the floor..Lindsey and Amanda..Love ya'll :)
~You are a rolling machine...you still will not crawl. You will get up on all fours like you are going to get what you are looking at but then you will flop down to your belly and maneuver yourself in every direction by rolling to get there. It is hilarious to watch you. I still am worried that you aren't on track but I know that all babies are different and I don't see any developmental delays and neither has the pediatrician so I just pray that you are a non interested lazy little girl who will pick it up soon :)
~You are a BIG eater...you still nurse when you wake up and before you go to bed but other than that you are nursing and bottle free. You eat a big breakfast, lunch and dinner and you eat two good snacks also. You love some chicken, fish and pasta. I love how you pick the way you eat your food..it's usually the cheese, fruit, meat, and then some of the veggies..ha!
~You think Zeus is the most hilarious thing ever
~You LOVE some Elmo or actually TV in general..something can catch your eye on the tv and you will just stare forever
~Speaking of staring you can for sure give some looks also.
~You still love your bouncy but do really good playing on the floor with all of your toys.
~Bath time is probably your second best thing besides dinner time.
~You still love going to daycare, which makes this momma very happy!
~You have gotten a lot closer to your daddy here lately and I think that makes him very happy as well.
~You love to mock everything that we do...you love for us to cough and you do it right back to us (sometimes not in the most appropriate places. like in church the other morning when you were mad at Kavin because he wouldn't play the coughing came with you during Bro. Ken's sermon..lol)
~You can say bye-bye, mama, dada, hey, hi, we swear you are saying other things when you want like duck, baaaa (sheep sound) Gigi, and I know there are some others
~You still only have 6 teeth those two on top just refuse to come in
You really are our little entertainer we get so tickled at some of the things you "say" and do. We love you to the moon and back and can't believe you are 11 months old...It can't be!!!
I think my expectations of Christmas were a little lacking this year. I guess because I always imagined baking cookies, setting up for Santa and such but I know that Lyla is not old enough to do those things or understand so I already have things in mind of traditions and things that I want to start next year when it will mean more to her and us.
Lyla and Gigi being silly.
Give me that present
My rockn raffi the giraffe..not real sure about this.
We didn't get into town until Thursday night after Lyla's ear procedure. I now think we should have just waited but didn't want us traveling the day after and her have a long day with eating and opening presents at grannys house. With the procedure and getting off of her schedule and being away from home was a rough week with trying to get her sleep. It didn't help that she got a stuffy nose while we were there so she couldn't breath and that was hurting her sleep as well. We just went to NB for Christmas and weren't able to travel to AR but hopefully we will be able to soon. We opened presents Saturday night and Lyla had a great time seeing all of the goodies she received. We got up Sunday morning and went to church and just hung out around the house the rest of the week. I was sad to leave but very glad to get home and get Lyla back on track with her sleep because I was one worn out momma.
My poor baby had to get tubes in her ear last Thursday morning. It was a tough day waiting to get finished with the procedure but she got through it like a champ and everything went well. I am glad it is over and realized how very thankful that we are as we saw all of the other moms and dads in there with all of their babies who had way bigger problems than we could ever imagine. I now hope this will eliminate all of the fluid that kept building up in her ears that was causing all of the problems. We go back in 6 weeks for a check up to see how they are doing. We will get them out in about a year if they haven't fallen out before then.
