Sloane-11 months

Pin It

I can't believe in less than a month Sissy will be 1 year old! It bittersweet knowing our baby will no longer be a baby and will enter wonderful "toddlerhood" in such a short time. She is growing up so quickly. I know it's because she has an older sibling and is a girl...blah blah blah but I just feel she already does so much!
Today she said "bye bye" for the first time. Like said it appropriately...when someone was leaving our house. ;) She has had the waving down some time now but it's so cute to hear her voice in a sound other than a scream. Boy, does she like to scream. Wyatt and her will scream back and forth for at least 1/2 an hour and laugh hysterically about it.
We had her well visit last week and she weighed 16.8 lbs! (5%) Her length was 28 1/2 (47%) and I can't remember her head measurement but it was also around the 40% range. We just have a petite girl on our hands.

Her smile is still SUPER contagious and we are still stopped daily for people to stare and "gawk" at  her. *proud mama* Sloane and Wyatt play more and more each day. The interaction between them is usually fun to watch! They have really started playing together instead of just playing in the same room/space at the same time. This also has been the month of "mines" as well. They have also both had there turn with pretty good bite marks. Sibling fun right?!?! They do love each other with as much as their little hearts know to love. You can see the smile on their faces each morning or after nap-as if it has been years since they have played with each other. Wyatt gives unprovoked kissed throughout the day as well and she LOVES them! We had her first b-day pictures taken as we have started preparing for her huge 1st B-day party! Our photographer is AMAZING and once again Angie's pictures didn't disappoint!

*sneak preview*

Sloane waves, crawls faster than some can walk, and has started moving from furniture to furniture. We recently got out her little walker toys (that looks like a stroller, so stinkin' cute) and she loves it! I knew we were getting close to her being able to push it and I was right! We have only hardwood upstairs so I am always so nervous when it comes to pushing those toys. LOL!
Due to some medical issue (with me/my milk production) she has had to have a few formula bottles but we have been making the transition to whole milk and more food lately. By one we will no longer have bottles and she will eat food and drink milk like the rest of us. A milestone I can't wait until she reaches.

Sleeping has been a little rough the past few months. Her left ear has been infected since around 9 months. It's not that it keeps getting infected it's that no antibiotic we have tried has worked. Not cool-not cool at all! The Dr.'s words at the last appt. were "well, the ear drum hasn't ruptured yet..." a comment all mom's want to hear right?!?! We are on our last attempt before we are referred to an ENT. ;( With that said her other ear has had 2 infections in 2 months as well but there was a time it was clear. Grrrrr......With all that said sleeping hasn't been fun. We have spent many a nights with me sitting up on the couch with her in an elevated position. She has even started sleeping with one hand cupping the infected ear. Talk about break a mama's heart.
Sweet mama's girl, you are such a blessing to our family. I know I have said it before but you compete us more than we ever thought possible. We are so honored God gave you to us! We love you "Sloaney Bologney."
