At eleven months old, Anna Ariel:
*weighs approximetly 21 1/2 pounds and is approximetly 28 inches long. She is almost too big for her car seat!
*wears size 9M or 12M in onesies and 9M in bottoms. Her diapers are still size 3.
*has cut her first tooth, she started working on it yesterday! It one of the bottom middle ones. We are so proud!
*having lightened up a bit, her hair is a light auburn ish red color now. It still has some orange in certain lights but is looking more and more like my hair color now.
*her eyes are a light steely blue with a dark navy edge. Not too much hazel or green in there anymore, but not too much yellow in there either. They are developing into their own unique beautiful shade.
*has been nursing for eleven months now. That is two months longer than Alan did and only a month away from having nursed for a whole year. I am so proud of us, this month especially has been rough on me. I have been in some pain and have thus had a lower supply. But we are chugging through and onward towards that year mark! She usually nurses in the morning when she wakes up, right before her afternoon nap and right before bed. I also pump in the morning and at night to help with supply. Only a month left! :D We can do it!
*stood up for the first time, right before it was her birth anniversary! She was up late, teething and fussing that night. But she surprised us all by standing up by herself for several moments!
*sleeps pretty consistently through the night still. With the heat, it has been harder to get her to sleep before dusk, but we make do. We bought black-out curtains for our room to help. She usually sleeps from 10 pm to 6 or 7 am, with one nap usually from noon to about 2 or 3.
*can say, "Mama, Dada, Bobba (bottle) and BruhBruh (Alan)"
*likes food, books, colors, Bubble Guppies, clothes, music, animals, her big brother and her parents!
Happy birth anniversary Anna Ariel! Only one more month until the big ONE YEAR. You keep growing and amazing us each day! Daddy, Alan and I love you soooooooo much!
