Mae is 11 months old!!

Our baby girl is almost a year old! Mae was 11 months old on Easter Sunday!

  • Mae is still on the same predictable schedule as last month. She wakes around 6:30, naps around 9 for 1.5 h, then again around 1:30 for 1.5 h, and goes to bed at 7-7:30. 
  • Our biggest change is that she SLEEPS ALL NIGHT!!! At the beginning of the month she was still waking and crying some, but she has only woken a handful of times in the last month to whine/cry. It's been amazing!
  • I'm dropping her mid-morning nursing session this month, so she's going down to 3 feeds/day. 
  • She continues to be a great eater. She will eat nearly anything. Favorites are cheese, grapes, blueberries, bananas, spaghetti squash with cheese, beans, chicken, yogurt, and much more! She has 3 meals and one snack right now. When she drops the mid-morning nursing, we will add a snack. 

  • Mae walks all the time now and tries to RUN to keep up with Arabelle and Bo. She's getting fast!
  • Mae cut her bottom 2 teeth a couple of weeks ago and they are coming on in. I think she's working on her top ones now, considering she's been doing some biting. 

  •  Mae has several new words: Bo, Drake, and thank you. Despite saying only a few words, she understands a bunch and can follow simple directions, like "get the ball", etc. 
  • Here she is saying Bo's name:

  •  She can still wear her 9 mo. onesies, but the pants are too short. She's in mostly 12 mo. stuff, which works because all of Arabelle's Spring/Summer clothes are 12 mo (even though she was only 8 mo. this time of year!)

  • She is such a loving girl! She will give hugs and kisses most of the time we ask and she will go up to Bo when he's having a whining moment (um, those happen a lot) and pat his back and lay her head on his shoulder. He hates it, but I love it! Haha! 
  • Mae loves music! 

  • She loves to put things, like balls or plastic easter eggs, into buckets. She also LOVES Drake. 

  • I'm afraid Mae's going to be a climber. I know......She likes to go in A & B's room and climb up on Bo's bed. I'm trying to teach her how to get down. She also loves stairs and we're working on getting down those too. 

Happy 11 mo. baby Mae!
