Eleven Months

Hollis you are ELEVEN months old!!!

You weigh 23 lbs and 6 oz (we went to the dr yesterday so I know this!)

You wear size 12-18 months clothes and size 4 diaper

You slept through the night for the very first time last night!!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!

You take usually just one nap a day  - occasionally two.

You are a good eater but you crack me up because you would rather eat green veggies than anything.  You don't really like cheese or meat.  You could eat your weight in avocado and you get it ALL over you! You love any kind of fruit.

You are crawling so fast these days - I can barely keep up with you.  And you pull up on everything.  You can stand alone for a few seconds. I would imagine you would walk sometime after your first birthday. 

You love to clap your hands and you wave at everyone you see.

You wake up from every nap and every sleep SO happy!

Your hair has really grown lately. It's so thick and is a dark blond color.

You are just the sweetest, best natured baby.  You are just easy and adaptable and content. I'm curious to see if this will continue when you are 2 or 3 but for now - you are just such a precious little baby.  (You will still be precious when you are 2 and throwing fits but you are especially precious now).

You are just such a blessing to me.  I can't put into words how much I love you.  I wondered if I could possibly love a second child as much as I loved your sister and the answer is I 100% can.  I love you both equally and passionately.  

I'm in complete disbelief that in 4 weeks we will celebrate your first birthday.  It was just yesterday I was holding you in my arms at the hospital for the first time and looking at your jet black hair. 

I love you Hollis Barrett!
