{Elodie: 11 Months}

Our little lady is going to be one in nine short days. NINE DAYS! Where has the time gone? Ugh… I’ll save all that complaining for later. For now, here’s what Elodie is up to just shy of her first birthday….

She loves to point at anything and everything.. and every time she does I am tempted to just bite that chubby little finger right off!

She took three steps over a week ago and now shows absolutely no interest in doing that ever again

She loves bread and cheese (yup, she’s mine!) but isn’t a fan of avocado (wait, maybe she isn’t mine…?)

She loves playing peek-a-boo

Is still too impatient for books – she bails about four pages in every.single.time.

She hates diaper changes, which makes us hate them perhaps even more 

She’s literally obsessed with daddy. If he walks out of the room, she cries, if he walks into the room she cries unless he is holding her, she gives him the biggest smile and laughs every time she sees him. I mean the girl is just madly in love with him – and I can understand why. Honestly, though, it does make me feel a little left out at times, but I hear these things go back and forth. I’ll just have to wait my turn for all that good love.

She says mama and dada (but not at the right people) and just kinda sorta started saying baby (we think).

She loves to clap her hands and wave hello and bye bye

We’re trying to teach her how to high five

She sleeps 11-12 hours a night straight. Still cries (hard) for 30-60 seconds right as we put her down and walk out of her room, but she calms down pretty quickly and then falls asleep within 10 or so minutes. 

She takes two 1-2 hour naps a day 

She loves Henry, but hates when he barks

She has started refusing her bottles at daycare 

She’s sleeping on a cot at daycare, but definitely still in her crib at home

She has five (almost six!) teeth

She’s wearing some 6-12 month clothes still, but is starting to venture into 12-18

Most of all, I hope I remember how madly we love this girl. Sometimes I wish I could record the conversations Corey and I have so Elodie could hear them later. It saddens me to know she’ll never remember this time in her life. We are constantly talking about how much we adore her, couldn’t love her more, think she’s the most beautiful angel. I mean, we’re seriously obsessed. I hope she can feel that love and will continue to feel it forever.

  1. This is such a great post! I follow you on instagram and it's so neat to see how she has grown, and to read about what stage she is at right now. I think my son is almost exactly a month younger than Elodie, so it's fun to see where we might be a month from now. I'm always so surprised to hear about how differently babies grow. Some babies walk and talk, others hardly move! Some grow right away, others grow over time. I literally laughed out loud when you said Elodie is moving into 12-18 month clothes, because I just purchased a few spring onesies for Harris, and I got them in 24 months! Yikes! On another note, happy (almost) birthday to your sweet girl!

  2. who doesn't like avocados??? come on Elodie, get your act together 😉
    but for real, she is an absolutely beautiful little girl, and I love the little glimpses at her personality you share on Instagram.

  3. My guy isn't having the avocados either. And we sleep trained him at 6 months and now at 9 months he still cries right before he goes to bed too! Can't believe she is almost a year! That went by so fast!!!

  4. My little guy turned one last weekend, and I'm still mystified how that happened so fast. Isn't it neat to think that one day Elodie is going to read your blog? She's definitely going to feel the love just by reading your posts about her!

  11. Greetings My Dear Friends,

    90% of Doctors, Prophets, Spell caster and Professors advertising on the internet are FRAUDS, do not send them money, because i have been scammed alot, block them, they have no powers, all they can do is harass you for money, do not give in. If you have any problem contact chief nwaluta, he is the only true spell caster. My name is Szalay Jessie from South Africa, My heart was crushed in early February this year 2015 and my marriage and Love life was completely muddled and broken down. I was so heart broken and i needed to put an end to the imbroglio that has affected my marriage for the past nine months because i and my kids needed my husband to be back home this Christmas. I knew fully well that I must learn to love myself before anything else and i knew he was meant for me with no doubt, because when we first met till after 14 years of our marriage, he was there for me. After our divorce, without a shadow of a doubt I do feel completely off balance and i was living each day with no direction and very little actual presence of myself, I felt like I was on auto pilot and I was wasting day after day all in pains.. And as of February 3rd, he started bringing in all the lies, the other women, etc. I knew I married for bigger reasons so I hope its just the fog of our issues that brought in the uncertainty. I always liked to keep an open mind, because ultimately, I just wanted everything to be ok with the 3 of us (my son my husband and myself) And Its has not been easy after all the times he's left. I just didn't want to keep falling deeper into the wrong direction. My divorce totally went into default in FEBRUARY. I was totally frustrated and i needed help from an online spell caster which Chief Nwaluta rendered to me completely. Finally I am writing this testimony to offer my thanks and deep gratitude to you Chief Nwaluta for keeping to your words and your promises in bringing him back to me in just 24 hours of your powerful spell casting, and for using your gifted and great powers to bring him back today the 2nd of November 2015.

    I visited a forum here on the internet on the 15TH OF MAY 2015, And i saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful and great spell caster called Dr Save on the forum..I never believed it, because i never heard nor learnt anything about spells before.. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not until Dr Save did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me and brought my wife back to me in just 17hours just as i read on the internet..i was truly astonished and shocked when my wife knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept her back.. I am really short of expressions, and i don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you Dr Save you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. And now i am a joyful man once again.. here is his Email: adesolutiontemple@gmail.com you can also OR CALL +2347064348663….Tommy Liverpool(UK)….

  14. Am very happy to tell everyone about the greatest spell caster of all time Dr Henry of PERMANENT SPELL CAST. I lost contacts with my Husband few months after we broke due to some quarrels we had, i searched for him for reconciliation, but all my efforts was lost and i turned hopeless until i came in contact with Dr Henry, who helped me with his voodoo spell to locate where my husband was and also helped me cast a love spell on him.
    The Dr told me that my Husband will come back to me after 4 days of the spell, and i was so surprised that it all happened as the Dr said it will, my husband came back to me for a reunion after 4 days of the spell. Now am very happy with my family, and my husband has loved me more than ever, since the spell was cast on him by Dr Henry.
