We have one more month until someone special has her first birthday! Gosh, I still can't believe it! But yes it's true-our little Cassandra is now 11 months old!
She's wearing either 6 or 9 month clothes depending what it is. She's in size 3 diapers for daytime and 4's for overnight.
Her sleeping is pretty good. The last week of the month she slept through the night every single night! (knocking on wood) Before that, she was either up once a night or would sleep through. I *think* we're getting there! Cassandra usually naps twice a day still-times and lengths of naps vary. Some days for her afternoon nap it takes her forever to fall asleep....I'm wondering if she's getting ready to drop it soon? We had 1-2 days where she didn't take an afternoon nap (because I gave her over an hour and she didn't fall asleep) and the poor thing was so exhausted by bedtime. She really needs the 2 naps but is just wound up at naptime sometimes!
She's nursing 4-5 times a day now-she seems to be cutting back on that.
Cassandra is still having 2 meals a day now-lunch and dinner. Some new foods for this month include: turkey, grilled cheese, grapes, waffle, canned peas, blueberries, graham cracker, blackberries, hamburger, fruit cocktail. She tried and liked everything-but wouldn't swallow the hamburger (Avery did that too!). She kept shoving it in her mouth and was storing it in her cheeks-so I ended up fishing it all out of there! Silly girl!
Let's see....new things for this month! She gets up into a push-up/plank position now. She'll play peek-a-boo with a blanket and will "dance" when asked. She started saying "Dada" and says "A-ya-ya" for Avery. She'll "meow" when we ask her what Jerri the cat says. Cassandra gets up on all fours and rocks-and has her own little style of crawling-it's adorable! She finally can drink from a sippy cup, but we have to tip it up for her-she hasn't grasped that idea yet, but finally got the sucking thing down! She loves sleeping with her bear blanket toy now! She says "na na" for "night night" when we go to bed and she loves to wave bye-bye! If we ask where her tongue is, Cassandra sticks it out! We also moved her out of her infant carrier and into a big girl car seat!
Here are her photos for the month...which are getting more impossible to take!
