11 months with Maci Louise!

It's crazy to think that in a little less than a month, we will be celebrating a year with our little Maci Lou! I've been saying this for the last 11 months, so I'll say it again ;) Time flies! Mia starts preschool and Maci turns one all within 8 days of one another...clearly it's going to be a very emotional time for this Momma! But I know this is also just the beginning of the super fun stage with Maci, so I'm excited for that too! :)

What are you up to these days...

*Developmental milestones: Back on 7/15/14 Maci started "cruising" and that girl can't be stopped! She's taken one small step, but nothing that I'd consider her first "official" step yet, but I have no doubt that she'll be walking by her 1st birthday! She LOVES dancing to music! It's super cute! On 7/18/14 she starting standing for a few seconds without holding onto anything. On 8/4/14 she can officially and correctly put up 1 finger when you ask her how old she's going to be AND give you five when you ask! :) Oh, you've really have the waving thing down now, with both hands. SO cute!

*Your stats:There is no 11 month check-up, so I'd venture to say you're around 24 lbs. My big girl! :) But you're proportionate because you're also very tall!

*You are in size 5 diapers

*You wear mostly 18 month clothing

*You continue to be SUCH a good girl at Linnie's. Everyday when I pick you up Linnie always brags about how good you are! :)

*You love Manuel, Mia and Daddy. You do this super adorable "shy" face when you're around new people. You actually even do it when you're around people you know, and you just feel shy!

*You're a momma's girl, through and through! 

*You're still in Mommy and Daddy's bed and we're 100% okay with it! (well, Daddy isn't really 100% okay with it anymore...usually he ends up on the sofa! ;)) but I told him I'd give a REAL try to get you in your crib after you turn one! :)

*You have started to cut back on your bottles. You still drink 6 oz. every 5 hours, but lately you've been not finishing your entire bottles. I think you're going to be ready to transition soon. But, since you're my last baby, if it were up to me, you'd be drinking from a bottle until you're 10! ;)

*You do a lot of babbling...you definitely know I'm "mama" and Daddy is "dada" but no other words than that, yet.

And for good measure:
