Happy 11 Months!

I can't believe we are only a few weeks away from Miss E's birthday already. Where did that year go? Miss E turns 11 months old today, yet another month that has zoomed by! This month has been one of cuddles, smiles, getting through difficult nights, more cuddles, enjoying being outside lots, tormenting the dog and enjoying a few whole nights of her sleeping through!

Here's a little update on some of the main things this month.... 

Sleep - As mentioned in her 10 month update, we've been having massive problems with her sleeping or anything to do with her laying on her back (nappy changing can be so stressful it has me in tears!). We've been back and forth to the doctors and the last time we went I was pretty much adamant we wouldn't leave without some help. She's already being treated for reflux and so the doctor prescribed us something else to give her on top of what she already takes with each feed and I can't tell you how much this has helped. 
For the past couple of weeks it is like we have a new baby, for the first time ever she lets us hold her whilst sat down for more than a few seconds. She's generally much calmer and we've had a fair few nights where she's actually slept right through until 4/5am and a few times until a much more respectable 6am! 

Doing - Crawling everywhere and cruising as much as possible. She's standing too for a few seconds now without holding on to anything, getting more sturdy by the day! She can crawl so fast and our favourite thing to do is to take her to the park where she can crawl on the grass as much and as far as she likes..... mostly she likes to chase Elsie though, it's adorable!

Saying - Talking of Elsie, her first word is officially "doggy"!. She's worked out how to do her pointy finger and loves pointing at dogs in magazines, on the tv, in the park, and Elsie of course!

Eating - Still on three milk feeds a day and the amount of solids she eats currently varies tremendously. She is very adamant that she no longer wants to be fed with a spoon and screams if we come anywhere near her with one! She's quite happy to feed herself though and her current favourites are toasted muffins/crumpets with a little jam, blueberries, grapes, cucumber, cheese, pasta, toast fingers dipped into homemade soup and pizza.

Likes - Tummy tickles, cuddles, peekaboo, dancing, clapping, going on the swings at the park, splashing in the bath, offering mummy her food, bath time, eating out, seeing sheep and bird in the countryside, climbing on everything, watching Noddy, turning book pages, stroking the dog, playing with containers/boxes and tidying things 'away' (mostly putting stuff under the sofa or behind things!).

Dislikes - Having her nappy changed, getting dressed, wearing socks or shoes and brushing her teeth!

Happy 11 months, my princess!
