As for Luna and how she is developing at 11 months....
-We think, think, that she signed for the first time today!! She signed 'more' while eating her favorite, whole wheat tortillas, but will have to see if she does it again tomorrow and grab a video.
-She drank from a straw sippy cup for the first time today, too, yay! Apparently regular sippy cups are not good for speech development, so we have been trying to just give her a regular cup, but so glad she is now drinking from a straw and is spill proof for restaurant eating.
-She is standing, pulling up on everything and moving up and down our living room ottoman/coffee table but not standing by herself yet. Gets a little scared. But believe me, I am NOT wanting her to walk yet. Just not ready for that yet!! She does not want to really play with her toys anymore, she just wants to crawl, and explore!
-She LOVES her avocados still, and is not the best eater. She no longer wants me to feed her anything, nothing with the spoon, so no more purees except maybe Yo Baby Yogurt. She also loves her tortillas, I have a feeling she will be a carb lover like her momma.
-Loves listening to her children's music CD's and Kindermusik classes. Anytime I start singing a song, she stops what she is doing and smiles and comes over to me
-She is enjoying her story books and I've been signing all of the words in her word books, animals and animal sounds
-She loves her swing outdoors and gets so upset when we have to come inside
- I think she weighs about 18 pounds and is still in 9-12 months but some 12 months are still way too big for her..Why can't these brands get a universal size going on?
Next month is the big 12 months!! It will be interesting to see where she has grown between now and then as babies grow so much in such a short amount of time from social, emotional, verbal, motor, etc.
