Eleven Months Old

At eleven months, Amanda is...Weighing 19 lbs. and measuring 27 1/2 inches (Give or take, wiggle, wiggle).

Showing six teeth; four on top, two on bottom.

Walking with help.

Taking a few steps on her own.

Climbing stairs.Saying mama, dada, tee (Kitty-but she says it in reference to any animal), buba (Brother), and nigh-nigh.

Drinking from a sippy cup and feeding herself finger foods.

Nursing five or six times a day (She had been nursing less but it must have been a passing phase.)

Sleeping 12 hours at night and taking two or three naps.

Wearing 12-months size clothing and size-3 shoes.

Going diaper-free while during waking hours.

And clapping her hands.

Am I forgetting anything?

hi! just found your blog. shawn, our adopted son, turned a year old yesterday and we are also still nursing. boy do people look at me strange when i nurse in public, even though he is as light as we are with a sandy blonde afro. people just know hes "different" than me, and may assume my husband is black, not sure. do you plan to let her self wean? he is nursing approx.6 times a day too9although hes up in the night too UGH). not sure when he will be ready to stop. funny thing-hes my most successful/longest nursling out of the 4 babies i nursed!(hes our only adopted infant, we adopted our other son as a 7 year old)anyway, nice to meet you, cool to meet someone with a baby the same age that is adopted and nursing! come say hi on my blog if you catch a free minute(you must be SO busy!)ali in NH
