11 Months Old

Our little Olivia has transitioned from a baby to a toddler this month and we are in complete denial that she is almost one. The 11 month mark has brought about so many changes in Olivia including she is full blown walking, likes to climb, has quite the personality when you tell her the word no, has thrown a few tantrums, has no teeth yet, and still thinks cat napping is the way to go. I love seeing her little personality develop and it can be scary to see how much she is like me. At least I have no one to blame when she pulls the same faces I do and seems to get upset about the little things... I can't imagine where she gets that personality trait ;)

Olivia has been on two road trips in the past month, went to the ER for her first time (dog bite), picked out her first pumpkin at the pumpkin patch, and has grown out of so many clothes that I lost count. She is just over 23 pounds and is 30 inches tall. Her favorite snack is Cheerios by far and she loves to drink water out of a grown up cup. She skipped the sippy cup stage entirely. Sleeping has been a bit longer at night and she is pretty worn out by about 7:30pm. She has had a few nights with nightmares and wakes up all out screaming... I sure hope those are not frequent!

Here are a few pictures of Olivia's 11 month onesie...

love those bright eyes and her rocking horse in the background
this about captures it, she is almost one and seemed to hold her finger up at just the right time for the picture

And I just love these pictures from the pumpkin patch... Olivia absolutely loved playing with the pumpkins, playing in the dirt, and seeing the farm animals... the pigs were her favorite!

she wanted to play with all of the pumpkins

The next month is going to be busy and bittersweet. I am knee deep in planning her 1st birthday party and getting invites mailed and party decor made. I can't wait to celebrate her 1st birthday with all of our family and friends... but I will be shedding a few tears as our little girl transitions from baby girl to a little girl. I can't believe how fast the time has gone... We love Olivia and are so blessed to have you in our lives. Love you!
