Today Delaney is 11 months old! It is so hard to believe that we will be celebrating her birthday a month from today! I am so excited! We got to spend the afternoon celebrating her boyfriend Parker's birthday. It was a lot of fun, and all these pictures are from the party! The last month has been an especially fun one for Miss D. She can gone crazy with mobility and curiosity. Although she is not walking yet, she is EVERYWHERE! She is one busy little girl. With all this new exercise, she has moved her bedtime up to well before 8p.m. This makes us sad as we get very little time with her after work every night, but she obviously needs her rest!
She is also eating everything in site these days. Her latest favorites are yogurt, kiwi, and bananas. She remains a fruit and veggie lover, but has tried and enjoyed many meats. She has also become quite the little beggar. We can no longer sit down to eat or enjoy a snack without having to share a few bites (or many bites) with her. She drinks water from her sippy cup and an occasional big girl cup quite well. Although, she chokes on water more than anything else. She is on her last can of formula, then we will transition over to milk. She had no troubles moving from breastmilk to formula, so I'm not worried about this transition.
She seems to be hitting a growth spurt right now. According to our scale this evening, she weighs about 23 and about 30.5 inches long. She seems to be so big these days. Our tiny little baby seems to be a distant memory. She is firmly in size 12 month clothes. She is also wearing size 3 diapers . She seems to be always hungry these days, and pretty tired. I think she is growing like a weed right now.
She has developed her love of dancing and swimming even further this month. She dances anytime she hears music. She is always smiling and bouncing about. It's so much fun! She has continued her swimming lessons this month. Each week she does something new or better than the week before. This last Tuesday, she actually swam. Craig let go, and she floated and kicked her feet and propelled herself a couple feet. It was amazing! She's a natural!
