11 Months Old

Ahhh, my baby is going to be a year old next month!!  That is crazy!!!! 
I feel like Mia's personality has really come out this month.  She's so sweet and so silly!  She keeps us laughing!

-weighs 19lbs 13oz
-is 29inches long
-wears 12-18 month clothes
-wears size 4 diapers
-wears size 3 shoes
-nurses 5-6 times a day
-sleeps 12-13 hours at night
-takes a nap around 10:30 or 11 and then maybe 3:30 or 4.  The afternoon nap has become a battle!  She's so tired but fights it!!! Most of the time she wins :-/
-she loves to stand on her head!  Probably 50% of the day she's in the "downward dog" position and even walks around like this.  Crazy girl!
-she loves to lean backwards when we are holding her.  Her daddy does it a lot with her and she loves it!
-she shakes her head no a lot
-says uh-oh every time she drops (throws) something.  
-throws her toys out of the bathtub now.  I'm not sure what this is all about.
-she has toys in our bathroom that she plays with while I'm getting ready.  She has started throwing her toys in the bathtub with me while I'm getting a bath.  I guess she thinks I need toys too :-). The musical toys now have a really creepy music thanks to this.
-has finally graduated to the big bath tub! It was a process, but we made it.  We had to put her in the tub with the duck tub beside her for a few days then we had to get a mat to go in the bottom of the tub.  She loves it now, thank goodness!!
-she loves her daddy.  When he comes home from work she gets sooo excited, crawling to him as fast as she can!!!
-has stood more by herself.  She stands for a long time if she's distracted.  As soon as she realizes what she's doing, she freaks out a little and sits down.  
-has 2 teeth on bottom and 2 teeth on top with 2 more on top that are about to pop through.
-has really started talking a lot more clearly.  We understand a lot more words she is saying now and she will just talk to us almost in sentences like she expects us to totally understand what she's saying. It's really funny!
-she had a great first valentines day!  Her daddy got her some roses, a balloon, and a little stuffed monkey.  It was the sweetest thing and Mia is still playing with the balloon.  She has the best daddy!
I can't believe her first birthday is so close!  I sure do love this girl more every day!
Warning: picture overload!

She loves her kitchen now!
She sleeps Indian style with her head on her bumper a lot.
Trying to climb into the bathtub!
Everybody sits on doors, right?
She discovered that her bib holds food.  She checks it every time now!
"Helping" mommy with dishes 
She found her baby bathtub and decided to climb in
This is how we had to transition to the big bathtub. I thought the duck was going to have to stay forever 
We went to the zoo with friends and had a blast!!!!
Cousin bath time!
Big bathtub finally :-)
She had a blast at Molly's 3rd birthday!
Now the duck is a ball pit.  
1st valentines!
Shopping -aka leaving a trail of Cheerios
All day long!
