Okay, before this month is over, I should probably post her 11 month pictures. I mean, she'll literally be 1 in like two weeks lol But oh well, for records sake, I still want share this past month and everything she's learned.
This month was big just because she has learned so much. I swear she turned into a toddler over night. She's still my little petite baby and has those same chubby cheeks I adore, but everything else about her has matured so much.
For example, she's so freakin active. And such a little date devil! She just learned how to walk and now she's practically running in my house, when she's not trying to climb into and on EVERYTHING. Watching her hike her little legs up onto things is the cutest yet most annoying thing ever lol
Update on her obsession with the fridge: She's figured out how to get her own snacks. No need for me anymore, I guess.
She's already getting special attention from the fellas too. A guy randomly gave her a bracelet at the mall recently. I'm not sure if he was trying to flirt with me or her, but we'll take free jewelry any day.
And if you haven't noticed yet, we FINALLY HAVE HAIR! She had some when she was born, then it thinned out for a while. Now it's finally growing back and long enough to put a little rubber band in it. I'm obsessed. Still amazed that it's not thicker than what it is though. I thought for sure between me & Jerrell she'd have a head full by now. I'm not complaining tho.
She loves being outside. We're most likely going to have her 1st party at the park because that will make her day. The funny thing is, she could care less about the swings and the slides and all that, she just wants to run around. Maybe we should have her party at the track lol idk.
She's learning how to respond/talk on cue, like waving bye-bye, or saying "Wow" "Oh!" even her version of "Thank you." I love hearing all her little noises all day. She's a champ at repeating/mimicking still. She'll growl back at you, stick her tongue out, and repeat any high-pitch noises she hears like someone screaming or the door squeaking. She just started dancing too, which is my fave.
In addition to hair... she now has FOUR teeth. Why am I so excited about my child growing teeth? #MomLife
This was also the first month she had a part from Daddy. Jerrell has an annual training where he's out of state for 3 weeks. I'm so thankful he's been able to be with us during all the important milestones. Some military families are not that lucky. I have a lot of respect for milsos who raise their families solo while their spouse is away. I'm also thankful to still live nearby our family, especially my mom, who is footsteps away. It would've been a lot harder without her!
Well, I guess I'll be back here with another blog in a few days haha Let's be real. Probably not. She turns 1 on the 13th and I probably won't post about it until weeks later, because, #Life.
But i'll end here for now with a few more of my fave pics from this month <3
