tonight being the last night my baby girl will actually be my baby girl (by textbook standards), i've decided to do her monthly post now. that way, i can post her last monthly post within the next couple of weeks (hopefully) and not have it drag on for another month. even though i could probably let it drag on for another year, i'll just keep all that stuff for myself (and claire) in her baby book and the little letters i write for her. c;
claire, at 11 months, is standing on her own a lot. she'll be in the middle of a room and bam! she's up and just standing there. she hasn't taken a full step on her own just yet though. and i'm okay with it.
claire, at 11 months, is fearless! i think it's one of her goals in life to give me an early heart attack. or lots of grey hairs, at least.
claire, at 11 months, likes to applaud herself when she does something she's proud of. it's freaking adorable.
claire, at 11 months, is still my little fishy-baby. she loves baths and just this month we bought a blow-up pool for the backyard and man oh man, she's in heaven in that thing. mainly because she can walk around in it (when she's not allowed to in the tub).
claire, at 11 months, follows her big brother everywhere. she's just started to figure out the concept of "chase" and has been doing that a lot lately.
claire, at 11 months, follows commands pretty well. whether they're from me or justin, or even landon, she does what we ask. for the most part. c;
claire, at 11 months, is still a terrible sleeper. her naps are decent but at night, gosh, it's horrible.
claire, at 11 months, eats basically whatever we're eating. she doesn't like us to feed her anymore and she also knows when she's eating something different than the rest of us. she gets pretty pissed.
claire, at 11 months, is obsessed with music. just like her daddy. she's also the dancer of the family. her favorite song right now? wiggle wiggle wiggle by jason derulo. yeah, totally inappropriate, i know.
claire, at 11 months, is wearing 12-18mos clothes. seeing as how she rarely plays with baby toys anymore and only wants to play with whatever landon is playing with, we've asked people to buy clothes for her birthday. she's quickly growing out of everything we have!
claire, at 11 months, will always be my baby girl. no matter how old she gets. it's still so hard for me to believe that one year ago tomorrow, my baby girl graced us with her presence. this has probably been one of the hardest years of my life, but also the most rewarding; having my two kids be the best of friends. gosh, being a mama is seriously the best.
