Colette is 11 Months Old!

Wow Long time no post. Colette is 11 months old... actually almost a year so let's all take a moment to cry and then come back to look at these pretty pics of our gal.
We will start with action shots from the past month or so. Colette had her first pool experience the middle of May at Grandma and Grandpas neighborhood pool. They have a great walk-in kid area with water features.
Water table fun!

She loves going to Auntie Shelly's house to play now that she's right around the corner!
I came over after work one day and I had a princess, super hero and a baby just going with the flow over there.
Wants to be like Dad and big brother with her hat.
Fluffy hair!
I put her in the pack and play while I showered and she was being silly. She loves putting things in buckets and taking them out.
She also is like a magnet to Max's chair. Every time we go upstairs she speed crawls directly to his chair to play.
She does this cute whistle, straw drinking motion with her lips now a days. It's very cute. She also loves to dance. Anytime music plays she bops around.
More pool time! 
Max is still a very sweet big brother to Colette.
She was not into her photo shoot this day. Just wanted to play with Max's tool bench.
New Developments- She is great at waving. She can blow kisses and give nice big open mouth kisses. Some of this stuff should be more between 11-12 months, but we will still count it.

She has 6 teeth now. 4 on top and 2 on the bottom. She is scaling the furniture and holding onto everything. She isn't quite interested in walking on her own, but you can catch her a few times take a step or 2 to get to you.

Love these 2!
Eating- She loves any food you put in front of her lately. All real food just in cut up pieces. She becomes such an angry bird if you don't feed her. She is signing water and more pretty well these days. She is still nursing morning and night and getting 1 breast milk bottle during the day. Mom has been offering a formula bottle for one of her feedings, but it's hit or miss if she wants it. I just started trying a little bit of coconut milk last week and she loves it. Counting down the days of no more pumping at work.
Sleeping- She has been going to bed around 8ish lately. Trying to stretch her out with new summer hours. If we are out busy she is good, but at home she is just ready for bed. I feed her and then I try to sing to her and she just flails her head back like put me in the crib and give me my paci. Then she doesn't make a peep and will just soothe herself to sleep. Such a good girl. I am also not going in at all to her at night. She sometimes whines or makes a little bit of noise, but by the time my monitor switches back from Max's room she has usually stopped and I don't need to go in! Thank you Colette... finally! I do put 2 pacis in the crib at all times (one at each end). She naps twice a day around 10am and 2pm for about 1.5 hours each go around.
She did not want anything to do with sitting posed pictures this time. She was like "I'm out."
My assistant aka Gigi was having a rough go trying to get her to sit.
"Let me go! I want to stand up and play with my toys!"
So Max decided to sit for me... well he might have been bribed by a cookie.
Finally got a few! Sweet girl.She's getting so much hair I love it.
Pretty girl
And that is all I could get... I'll take it. Now you can start ripping your bow out.

Birthday party prep is underway for Miss Colette's 1st birthday party!
I can't believe she is almost 1! She is so much fun with such a big personality. She is wearing size 12 months, but quickly moving on to 18 months here soon. Size 3 Honest Diapers. Pin It

Colette is 10 Months Old!

This adorable gal is 10 months old! No stats as we had them last month.
You will notice a trend in her faces during this photo shoot. She is a happy girl for sure!

New Developments- She is just standing away and cruising the furniture. She can almost balance standing up.
Her top 2 teeth have just pushed through as you can see. I don't know why she let me do this, but it was short lived!

She is still very talkative and becomes an angry bird if you don't feed her nonstop.

Eating- She is eating at 7am, 11am, 3-4pm and 7:30pm with breast milk (the middle 2 being bottles). She is finally back to eating finger foods. We hardly have to give purees if we have enough real people food to go around. There really isn't anything she won't eat right now so I am thankful for that. Her pincher fingers are so funny to watch.
I finally got smart and realized the pictures come out way better if the light is behind you. What a doll.
Sleeping- She is doing great with sleeping most the time. She naps twice a day for 1-2hours each time. She goes to bed around 7:30/8pm and on a good night doesn't wake until the morning. Even the bad nights are good with her waking up once (at random times) and then going right back down. She sometimes wakes up around 6am and if she finds her pacci he will just roll around until I get her by 7am.
Look at that face. That is pure excitement and joy. Doesn't get better than that!
She is growing so much hair! I had to show you without the bow. The cradle cap is now hidden but still there a little bit. It doesn't bother her and I keep picking at it.

"I peeled my sticker off and I'm about to eat it" Yes outlet covers were put on just after I realized we had an open one.
Told ya about the mouth open photos.
She's getting so big. Slow down time.

Here is some every day action shots of our sweet girl. One of her first swinging excursions. She loved it.

Fluffy hair don't care!
Colette just adores her big brother.
He is very tolerant of her and tries to include her most times.

They are precious opposites. Brown hair/brown eyes, blonde hair/blue eyes. We'll see if Coco's hair stays straight. I think it will curl like cousin Hadley because of the consistency of it.
First cart ride ( I think this was from last month but forgot to post those or maybe I did)

Who says we need an actual double stroller.
We had a closet picnic the other day in our guest bedroom small closet. Fun was had by all.
They also spent time watching the AT&T workers put some new lines in our yard from Molly's dog bed.
A bubble romper. Need I say more.
Sun hats!
Can you tell I went to Old Navy.
She was going after Max and then all the sudden grabbed the gate to stand up. I swear she was about to walk off. I had to hold her down until Michelle got back so we'll be practicing now since Michelle has returned!
I found a Georgia Southern onesie that fit and put Coco in it to show her spirit for the college nationals going on that day. She must have been good luck as the all girl team took first!
I didn't have a coordinated color bow so I just grabbed the biggest one. She's like are you serious.
First double stroller experience with her adorable outfit. Max's post is coming next week so you can see what he's been up to since this has been all about sister. Pin It
