Carter at 11 months!


Carter turned 11 months old on Christmas. This past month brought lots of changes. Here is a little snapshot of Carterbug at 11 months:

- YOU ARE WALKING!! Really in the last couple of weeks you have started walking consistently. You had been taking steps for about a month, but not what I would consider "walking" until now. You are not super fast yet, but can stay on your feet for a long time.

- You can say mama, dada, and baba. You also babble all the time!

- You are still the biggest mama's girl and always prefer me. You are fine if I leave you with someone else, but if I am in the room you want me.

- You are completely on table food at school and mostly at home too. Sometimes it's easier to give you baby food though!

- You have been off the bottle completely for a couple of weeks now. You have been using a sippy cup for your formula at school for over a month, but we were still giving you a bottle at night. You have really never been attached to the bottle so we just started putting your night formula in your cup too.

- You eat really well, and so far I haven't found anything you don't like.

- Your sister is your favorite playmate and you light up when she plays with you!

- Wearing a size 3 diaper, 3 shoe, 9 and 12m clothes

- You weigh about 19lbs, not sure on height

- You still sleep from about 6:30-6:30 or 7:00

- You are the sweetest and smiliest baby!

We are so blessed by you baby girl! We love you so much. I can't believe we will be celebrating your 1st birthday in just a few short weeks!!

Snow day fun!

We were out of school a couple of weeks ago for 3 days due to crazy weather. We actually only got rain for the first 2 days, so we took advantage and had some fun family time!

Zoo trip and pretty weather!

Only in Alabama do you have snow one week and then 70 degree weather the next! We are so ready for the 70 degree weather to stay! We went to the zoo on one of our pretty days and had a blast. It was perfect and not hot at all. We have also been to the park to spend some time as a family. Carter was a wild woman at the park and loved her new found freedom! I think she may be our fearless one, completely opposite of her big sister who is very cautious and not a risk taker. We also took our first trip to Steel City Pops, and it was so good! We will for sure be going back soon! I cannot wait to spend more time outside in warm weather!
