11 months old!

One more month until the big ONE!  (sniff, sniff!)


  • Clothes: wearing 9-12 months and 12 months
  • Shoes: size 3


  • Getting 1/2 breastmilk and 1/2 formula 4x/day in sippy cups (she won’t take a bottle, which is fine), anywhere from 3 oz to 6 oz at a time.
  • Eating all kinds of things, but I think she could live off of mac and cheese and bananas.
  • Napping 1-2x/day.  Sometimes she takes a morning nap and sometimes she doesn’t, but she’s not really ready to drop it, because she is exhausted and cranky when she skips it.
  • Sleeping from 7:20 pm – 7 or 7:30 am.

(She was pretty interested in the sticker this time!)


  • A couple weeks ago, Meredith got her two top front teeth – so now she has 4 teeth!  It’s funny, so far her teeth have come in in the same order and at about the same time as Russell’s did.
  • Meredith has started talking!  Her first word, of course, was Kitty (she says “key”), for her lovey.  She also says “da” for dog (she LOVES dogs).  I’ve heard her say “mama” a few times and I think she’s talking about me, but it’s hard to tell.  And she tries to repeat other things that we say.
  • She is now regularly standing on her own, cruising, and walking holding onto our hands.
  • Meredith is both Miss Independent and Mommy’s girl.  There are many times when she’ll entertain herself for long stretches of time doing all sorts of things – playing with toys, pulling her books out of her book basket and flipping through them, climbing in the little chair.  But she very much prefers me to anyone (including Jason) and if anyone is putting her to bed, feeding her dinner, reading her books, etc, I’d better not be in earshot or she’ll cry for me to do it.
  • She has gotten MUCH better in the last month or two regarding separation anxiety.  There was a short time (a few weeks or so) when she cried almost the whole time I dropped her off somewhere.  Now when I leave, she’ll cry for a minute and then get busy playing. 


I guess she’s barely a baby anymore, but I’m still calling her a baby (not a toddler yet) for at least the next month!  Love that sweet sunshine girl!
