11 month update

Quinne I seriously cannot believe that you are one month away from being a year old.  ONE month!?!?!  I'm sort of freaking out.  I have turned my energy into other things to try and distract myself from the fact that it's a matter of days until you reach that pivotal moment in your life.  And not to mention that your dad and I have made it this far!

Weight:You are weighing in at about 22 pounds these days.  A very healthy baby you are.  I know that one day you will not have such prominent thighs, so I am cherishing every squeeze and kiss I can while they are still here.  Right now you are wearing 12 to 18 month clothes, more on the 18 month side of the scale.  

Teeth:  You have four chompers.  I'm sure any day now another will poke through, seeing that you are having some sleep issues and extra drool-y lately.  But you do love the ones you have.  Two on the top and two on the bottom.  The top ones are hard to see, but when they make an appearance it's the cutest thing I think I've ever seen.  Seriously who would've thought tiny white teeth could be so dang cute.  The only downside of these great accomplishments is in the nursing department.  Please stop biting my nipple.  Thank you.

Hobbies:  All I can say is busy busy busy!!  Quinne you do not stop all day long.  From the moment you wake up you are exploring the house like you've never been in it before.  Opening all the kitchen cupboards that I haven't safety locked yet, examining the dog crate, opening the back screen door, and playing the piano.  You work in a giant circle throughout the house, from one pitstop to the next.  I must admit that when you go down for your two o'clock nap I feel so pooped I have to sit on the couch and zone out for a bit.  Partly from crawling around on my hands and knees and partly from walking around bent in half holding your hands so you can walk.  I feel like the Hunchback of Norte Dame.  You can call me Quasimodo.  Most days we leave the house and go to the park, or beach, or anywhere to people watch and breath in some fresh air.  

Eats:  You are a little picky when it comes to food.  You love Cheerios.  If you could you would eat them all day.  But we must eat our veggies.  This week we started making you smoothies in the morning.  And boy do you love them!  We make them with spinach and flax seed and lots of fruit.  We all sit together drinking our smoothies before the day really begins.  Plus it's the only time you will sit on our laps without writhing like you are in pain.  So I take full advantage of your smoothie love, for my own cuddle love.  I'd say that's a pretty fair trade.  

We just love you so much Quinne.  Your da-da and I can't stop kissing you and loving on you (when you let us).  I'm reminding myself that this time with you as a baby is so short and quick.  Before I know it you'll have your own opinions and ideas.  Which will be wonderful and amazing, but I want to cherish these moments right now.  Because as we all know time only moves forward.  

I can't wait for you to be one.  Well, that's a lie.  But it will be so much fun that I do know.  
I love you Quinne with all my heart. 

your mama
