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

She is so stinking cute! I love her big eyes and big smile! And she has so much more hair than Mim! I'm in total denial that our babies are almost one. Say it ain't so!
