Eating: Baby girl loves to eat!! Her favorite snack is puffs or grapes. She loves her oatmeal and apple sauce in the morning and overall isn't all that picky anymore. She will throw food on the floor if she doesn't like it! She is eating pretty much everything we are now.
Emilya is nursing 3 times a day, before naps and before bed. We are slowly weaning her, which I am not at all used to because with Noah, he did it himself, so it was easy. If she doesn't nurse before her morning nap, then she wants to after.
Sleeping: We started sleep training Emilya, and by sleep training, I mean we started to just put her down in her crib at bedtime without rocking or bouncing her for hours. The first night it took her 40 minutes to work it out, second night was 20 minutes and the third night it was 2 minutes. She won't do it naptime yet, but we will work on that part. I remember with Noah it took longer for naps too. She is still napping twice a day, but with the time change, it has kind of screwed us up a little. Em will goto bed around 7 and wake up around 7 or 7:30.
Clothing: Emilya is wearing 12 month everything, with the exception of 12-18 months shirts. Em has a long and lean figure, which makes shirts fit kind of funny. She is in 12 month sleepers and size 3 diapers.
Features: Emilya has blue eyes and her hair is definitely blonde!! Her hair is growing a bit more again. Em still has 8 teeth!!!
Weight: 10 Months: 19 lbs 10 oz. 30 inches
11 Months: 20 lbs 13 oz
What The Doctor Had To Say: We didn't see the doctor this month. We did see her ENT. Her hearing is still about the same, however she had a cold, so fluid was present in her ears. Turns out the last time she saw Emilya, Em was also sick with fluid in her ears, so the ENT recommended tubes. However, we will not be getting tubes at this time, because when she sees her audiologist it is also tested and fluid only seems to be in her ears when she is sick, which is normal. So we are going to watch her closely and only go that route if needed!
Big Brother Update: Noah is such a good big brother. I just love watching them together. Emilya really looks up to him and he is pretty good with her for the most part. They definitely have their little spats like siblings do, but for the most part they get along great and enjoy each others company.
Likes: Swimming! She's a water rat!!! Little people, the dogs, her baby, her bunnies in bed, blankets, her brother, bath time, books, eating, Patty-Cake, dancing, playing with the play kitchen and play food. She is also super snuggly lately, which I love!
Dislikes: her face being washed, and her brother taking toys from her
Personality: She is for the most part, a happy little girl. You will often find her smiling about something, and she has a good sense of humor. She is getting better at communicating when she doesn't like something or if she wants something, and she will tell Noah off if needed, but she is pretty laid back. Emilya is getting stronger and stronger with walking with her walker and along stuff and will stand on her own as long as she doesn't know she is!
