Energetic at 11 Months

Our sweet lil princess is already 11 months old!!  What a fun month this has been!  She's learning so much every day and is so energetic and happy.  Her energy is contagious.  She always has a smile on her face and is always giggling, dancing and exploring.

Stella loves to mimic anything that you do.  This month she's been a big copycat...
  • she's learned to cluck like a chicken
  • she knows how to clap her hands really good now
  • she's still dancing away but getting so much better - she's actually got rhythm! {she must get that from her mom! ;)}
  • she now shakes her head from side to side like she's doing the old school "snake" move - it's hysterical
  • she's trying to snap her fingers when she sees us doing it
Like I said, she's a copycat and is constantly watching us to learn a new "trick".

She still has a love/hate relationship with her bottle and boy is that frustrating.  Some days she'll eat for me and no one else and other days she'll eat for Kyle and no one else.  Ya just never know!  Even though she doesn't love her bottle 24/7, she sure does love table food.  She's eating so many new things and really enjoys pretty much all of it.  She eats Yo Baby Yogurt in the morning with cheerios and lately she's been eating the whole container.  She loves diced fruit - mainly watermelon, pears and apples.  She loves peas, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes and green beans.  She's even tried pasta!!  Guess she better get used to that since she's got Italian in her blood.  Those D's sure do make some yummy pasta so I don't think we'll have a problem getting her to eat that.  Stella still loves her puffs and yogurt melts and gets SO excited when she sees the container.

While she loves eating table food, she's still a tiny lil peanut.  The last time we went to the doctor {a few weeks ago} she weighed 17 lbs. 2 oz.  She's probably still in the 5th percentile for weight and height but once again, our princess is tiny but mighty.  I have a feeling she's always going to be small but I've always been told "Good things come in small packages!"  And actually I must say "WONDERFUL, PERFECT, AMAZING, INTELLIGENT, PRECIOUS and ENERGETIC things come in small packages!"

I can't believe how fast the months fly by and to think in only one short month she will be a 1 year old!  We can't wait to enjoy this month and get ready for the big 1st ever Royal Birthday Party!
