Kaycee is 11 months!

Our little miss turned 11 months old last week! I cannot believe that the next time I write one of these posts, she will be 1 year old!! First off {as always} - pictures! 

She loves bath time
She learned how to use a straw so I let her have some of my protein shake. Needless to say, I don't think she liked it! 
All ready for winter! 

Going to bed with mom's phone

We got her a balloon the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and it's STILL going! She loves it!! 
Church selfies 
Ready for BYU's last regular season game
New jammies! 
She loves selfies 

She did this all by herself - grabbed it off the shelf, rolled over and "read" it. This is one of her favorite books
I wish her eyes were open in this but it was too cute so I decided to post it anyway
I'm doing a challenge for December to do 12 5k's and she goes with me for most of them! Got to have her all bundled! 
Oh Christmas Tree!
Another 5k
She's discovered her little tongue! 
I was sticking my tongue out trying to get her to do it and she leaned in for a "kiss" with her tongue out! Totally caught me off guard - Jake caught the picture at the perfect momnet! 

Playing with her new activity table I got on a yard sale page on Facebook. She loves it! 

At her first movie - Penguins of Madagascar
She got to try some chocolate almond milk. Pretty sure she liked it! 

11 months old! 

Some fun things from this month:

  • She had a double ear infection and teeth coming at the same time. It made for a couple miserable days! After lots of snuggles, tylenol, doTerra oils and ibuprofen she's all better and back to sleeping all night again. It was a LONG couple days though! 
  • She's been taking 2 naps still, the first is 2.5 - 3 hours and the second is short, only maybe 45 minutes. She still needs that second nap though. 
  • She's loving solid food and only has roughly 10 ounces of formula each day. She has turkey sausage and yogurt or dry cereal for breakfast, pieces of whatever I eat for lunch and then whatever we eat for dinner. She's doing awesome at eating ANYTHING we eat. 
  • She's doing great at holding her bottle by herself now, I just don't even try to hold it and she'll do it. She loves using her sippy with a straw, especially if it has chocolate almond milk in it. 
  • She's learned to clap officially! She's GREAT at it, she gets so excited and claps often. We love it! 
  • She has gone from laying to sitting a few times but hasn't quite figured out the concept 100%. I think it's close though! 
  • She's trying so hard to pull herself up! She will try and then stop and get frustrated. She wants to be standing almost all the time and is frustrated if she's sitting down. 
  • She is CRAWLING!!!! Jake and I are so proud of her for figuring it out! Everyday she gets faster. She rolls sometimes but crawling is becoming her main means of mobilization. 
  • The day she started crawling she started taking steps with our help. We've been holding her hands and trying to get her to take steps and she wouldn't do it - we'd have to gently kick her heels to get her to go and then suddenly the day she started crawling she started taking steps! Her first assisted steps were to the Christmas tree to get a shiny ornament off - she loves the Christmas tree! She now walks with our fingers and is getting pretty fast or she will hold onto her walker toy and walk with that as long as we keep the walker from going too fast. She's doing so great! 
  • She's learned to turn pages and loves to read books. She is a little rough with paper books and has ripped a few pages so we try to read mostly cardboard books so she can turn the pages. She loves to look at the pictures and then tries to turn the page, usually she turns the page before we are done reading that page. 
  • She mimics Max pretty well with panting, it's super cute. 
  • Church sucks right now lol. We have 11:00 AM church and it is RIGHT when her first and best nap is and she won't sleep in our arms anymore so she just fusses and gets frustrated. Can't wait for 1:00 church in 2 weeks! 
  • She has 4 teeth and I'm 99.9% at least 1 if not 2 more are on their way. She has 1 on the top and 3 on the bottom. I didn't even know the bottom one was coming until I could actually see it so it'd been coming for a while! I think the other top tooth and the other bottom tooth are on their way, she's been gumming everything. 
  • She's in 12 month clothes and 18 month jammies but they are a little big. 
  • She loves to take her shoes off. It's the funnest game ever - as soon as we get her in her car seat the shoes come off! Socks too if we are in the car long enough. 
  • She loves to put her hands behind her head when she is ready for a nap. We lay her down, hand her a binky and she puts her hands behind her head and does the "chillax" pose. Every. single. day. It's adorable. 
  • She got a new car seat last month but I don't think I ever talked about it. It's still rear facing but it can convert to forward when we're ready. She's a big girl now! 
  • She's loving sleeping in - most days she sleeps until 9:00. 
Love you so much Kaycee, happy 11 months of life sweetheart!
