Just Julia!

Wow....I super stink at blogging this year. I guess I need to put it on the calendar to actually accomplish it. Except I'm pretty sure I did that a few months ago and it didn't work that...
I haven't done any monthly updates or news about Miss Julia in like forever, so I thought I'd focus on my baby girl today.

Julia is the BIG 11 months old today. I am soooo not ready for her to turn 1 years old. I'm pretty sure I will have to have another baby someday, somehow so I can experience this just once more. [Catch me in like 5 years though...because I'm not ready for sleepless nights again for awhile.]

8 months old

9 months old

10 months old

Today: 11 months old
At 11 months old, Julia is:
Weight: Somewhere between 14 & 15 pounds
Height: About 27 inches
Clothes: 3-6 & 6 month clothes. (She still fits the 3 month stuff, but I was super bored of it so I moved her up.)
Shoes: baby size 2
Diapers: Size 2 (again big, but the others were leaking at night, so I moved her up.)
Teeth: 6 (2 of which just broke thru last week. She's a miserable teether, but great at tolerating teeth brushing.)

Julia loves fruits & veggies. She has pretty much nixed baby food purees unless it's apple sauce or I just get lucky. She loves yogurt though.  And she'll steal her brothers rice or almond milk if he leaves the cup around where she can reach. I am thinking weaning at a year will not be difficult, thankfully. She has a hard time with sippy cups and only tolerates 1 or 2 kinds, one kind I can't find anywhere anymore so they better last.

She's a very busy girl. Crawling all over the place and pulls herself up, but isn't that interested in walking yet. I'm wondering if she'll be a "late" walker compared to her brother who was raring to go as soon as he could. I'm okay with that though.

She loves cuddling stuffed animals and playing with little toys. Julia is just a doll and has the sweetest personality.
I'm so glad that despite my fears of having kids so close together that it worked out the way it did. I can't imagine my sweet angel not being with us.

Now to finish planning her birthday party. She's having a Minnie Mouse party at a local cupcake place. :-)
