11 months


Where have the 11 months gone?!? Our sweet Faegan is growing up before our eyes!

Everywhere we go we are told we have the sweetest baby and I have to agree. Faegan continues to be a great eater, great sleeper, and all around happy child.

We are still doing two pretty long naps a day, but I think I am going to have to change the morning one to a little later. Faegan has started waking up before six and I think it may have something to do with her rather lengthy naps during the day. Nothing else has really changed - still in size 3 diapers, still nursing, still eating basically the same foods.

I have had the best time seeing results in Faegan's talking and copying what we say. (I know it isn't going to be too long until I am saying that with clenched teeth!) She says mama, dada, buh (for bye), moo, and the latest is hey. She especially likes to say "hey" to her reflection in the mirror. I think she picked this up from me because when I hold her up in the mirror I emphatically say "Hey baby!" and she thinks it is just grand. She also will moo on command when asked what the cows say. She loves the cows and strains her head over the side of her carseat to see them when we are driving down the driveway.


We went to the beach last week and she learned to climb stairs. She also is starting to stand alone.

This child loves to ride on the Rhino and this is often the fix for that in-between afternoon fussy time. She is the driver and won't let anyone tell her otherwise.

Here is the closest picture I have of all 8 teeth. She grinds them and it drives me crazy, but Dr. D says I can't do anything about it. Hopefully she will grow out of this.

Pulling bows out are another favorite past time. This particular night she was acting so shocked to find a bow in her hair. It's funny how she already "plays".

She is still in love with her Daddy, but will lie down in the morning and snuggle for a few glorious minutes with her mommy. Night time has turned in to a fun game of hide and seek after she finishes eating. We call for Ben to come say goodnight and Faegan can hardly stand it she gets so excited when she hears him walking downstairs. We usually hide and she will be so still and quiet until she is ready to reveal her hiding place.

Our sweet girl is growing up too fast! I can't believe she is almost a year old!!!
