My sweet girl turned 11 months old today. It is bitter sweet knowing that this is her last month before turning 1. There is nothing more exciting than seeing your baby grow and develop into a little person. I stare at her all the time and wonder what she'll be like when she grows up. But for now, I'm enjoying these moments while she's still my baby.
At 11 months old, Ava has a serious love for dancing! Whenever I play music, she bops and wiggles around. It's the cutest thing I've ever seen. She waves Hi and is now saying "Mom" and "Yea" in addition to Momma, Dadda, and baba. She is a very busy baby and loves playing with her toys. She is always on the go!
Ava loves eating everything. There hasn't been a single thing she hasn't liked yet. She just tried some ice-cream for the first time :) Ava has gotten very good at standing and will stand without holding onto anything for a few seconds. She hasn't started walking yet, but does very well with her activity walker.
I've transitioned Ava into her big girl car seat which has been nice not having to lug her and a big carseat in and out of the house every morning while heading to work! Ava sleeps from 8pm-7:30am every night and is still taking 2 naps. I have a feeling she'll be down to one nap sometime soon since the length of her one nap has been getting shorter.
Aside from waking up to her cute face every morning, my favorite time of the day is when Ava and I get to rock in her chair right before bed. Ava nuzzles her little head into my chest and I wrap her in her blanky and we say prayers together. She makes me so proud every day. I feel so lucky to be her Mommy and can't wait to celebrate her first birthday in April!
