11 months

Oh Miss Isabella...I know I say this every month but I cannot believe you are 11 months old...I mean we are in full swing mode for planning your 1st birthday...I remember people asking if I had thought about what we would do for your party and it seemed so far away and here it is...it crept up on me SO fast...I am NOT ready....daddy and I were just talking about the fact that you are almost not considered a baby anymore but...gasp a toddler....tear...you will ALWAYS be our baby though....

You are changing so much it is unreal....I love to watch as you develop new skills....such an incredible thing....you eat almost anything these days...besides the obvious no-nos. Especially at dinner time I try to feed you what we are eating...you prefer your meat cut up and you feed it to yourself rather than mixed in anymore....we started giving you a little whole milk when mommy's milk supply doesn't make enough...you get 1/2 breast milk, 1/2 whole milk bottles and don't seem to mind and it definitely hasn't bothered you thank goodness...this was hard for mommy but we are most definitely going to keep nursing...you are still a great nurser despite your ninja, gymnastics moves while nursing sometimes;) You have discovered where you get your milk from and most definitely have put your hand down my shirt in public...eek! I think its cute, just not in public;)

You are still SO super social....after our sweet Hobby Lobby incident where everyone was calling you the giggle girl....our next visit you just clapped the whole time...you apparently love Hobby Lobby as much as mommy:) You smile, wave and giggle at everyone...You really take in everything around you and watch other people...you are great at playing solo but also love to be held....you are kind of all or nothing with this one....

You are still a great sleeper....you love your lovey, sound machine and Wubbanub....you cuddle right up to all three as soon as we lay you down....

You had only 2 teeth at the beginning of this month and now have 6...eek!! I always know when one is almost through because you chew on your hand like no other, your nose runs, we have a few restless nights then its over....I think we went through a whole bottle of Motrin and Tylenol this month!! I hate watching you hurt!

Likes: Walking with your alligator walker, clapping (oh this makes my heart swoon), dropping food to the dogs and saying "Uh-Oh," playing with your tongue and sticking it out-its one of your new favorite games, you still love your "bay bays", love, love balls, waving, "talking on your phone"and diapers oh my....you hug them and love to play with them...you always go straight for your basket of diapers... you love food...it cracks me up the excitement you get when you see food, getting kisses from your doggies....kinda gross but oh so cute

Dislikes: you've decided butternut squash and sweet potatoes are not your favorite anymore...you have developed quite an opinion and if you have something else on the plate for us to feed you, you shake your head no at the potatoes and point at the other...haha, you still hate waiting for your food to heat up

Words: momma, dada, hi, ball, uh-oh, baby, dog, Dixie (you call all yorkies-Dixie:)
