11 months old and a pony tail

B is officially in her last month of her first year of life. She also has enough hair to make a Pebbles pony tail! She is so big and does big girl things all the time. This month she stands and walks(while holding onto something) all the time. She took her first steps the other day and it was awesome seeing her be so independent. She also loves to eat people food. She loves toast, waffles, fruit, carrots, sweet potatoes, green beans, beans, sloppy joes and peas. She still loves to pull everything out of bags and buckets. She also loves to throw balls and chase them. This month B always had something in each hand. She would even crawl around with toys in each hand, silly girl! B learned several new tricks and words this month. She says dada, mama, boom, baby, boo, and no no. I think she even says Pepe but it is hard to tell. She loves to make an Indian noise with her mouth, do knuckles, blow kisses, wave bye bye and hello, and still claps all the time. She is always talking, dancing and singing. She loves the song Baby by Justin Bieber. She dances to it and sings along. She has an A&M dinosaur that plays music and she loves to dance with it. We had to upgrade to bigger car seats this month and it is weird not carrying the baby carrier everywhere we go.

B had her first Thanksgiving this month. She enjoyed spending time with family and loved the sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, and carrots. She did not care for the turkey.

The Jumper family celebrated Christmas last weekend and B had a blast. Andrew got Bridgette for the gift exchange it was so fun seeing how excited he was to give his gift to her. He picked out the gift and the wrapping paper especially for B. She loves her fridge farm!

10 months old and I am way behind

I cannot keep up anymore! Bridgette will 11 months on Saturday so I think it is time to update about 10 months old.

Bridgette learned how to crawl on all fours, pull up, walk holding on the edge of things, and can stand without holding onto anything for a few seconds. She still loves to pull everything out of bags, off of shelves and tables. She said her first word this month too, no no. She learned to pick up food and eat with her fingers. She loves to eat bananas, pears, kiwi and toast.

B tested negative to soy and milk when we had her tested. You will have to read the 11 month post to see how she did with soy.

Clones? It's possible....

Everyone claims that Bridgette looks like me. Here is a picture of me at 9 months and pictures of Bridgette at 10 months. I think I can see the resemblance.

Happy Halloween!

Bridgette had a great first Halloween! She was just adorable in her skunk outfit!! She is definitely the cutest little stinker I know =) She also had a cute onesie with Halloween baby legs to accessorize. There were many festivities and occasions in which she got to wear her costume and outfit. The night of Halloween she was tired and grumpy and went to bed before trick-or-treats even knocked on the door. Grandma Jumper came over to bring her a present and to see her dressed up.

8 and 9 months flew by

As you can tell we have been really busy and I didn't even have time to update my blog last month. B has grown and changed so much in the past two months that I'm not even sure I can remember all of her milestones. I'm going to do the best I can.

8 months old-
B started going from sitting to belly. She started commando crawling everywhere! She loves to crawl but gave herself two huge wounds on her big toes from propelling herself with them. She does this so much that I couldn't get a good 8 month picture of her because she wouldn't sit and pose. She got two teeth on the top but not the center ones, the ones next to them. She had an ear infection this month and felt icky for about 4 days. Mom my and dad were in town so they stayed longer to help take care of Bridgette, she's a lucky girl!

9 months old-
This month she learned to push to sitting. She also gets on all 4s to crawl but can't quite figure out how the move her arms and legs. She loves to dance to music! I can already see dance team in her future. B babbles all the time, I think she is going to give me a run for my money in the talking category. This month she learned how to crawl up the step from the living room to the kitchen and into the play room. She loves to take everything out of baskets, bags, shelves, etc. She got the two front top teeth and now how a very toothy grin. She has the most contagious belly laugh and loves to play any game that required laughing. She also learned how to clap and enjoys clapping when she is happy. Two of her favorite past times are walks and swinging in the park. She loves to eat cherrios but it is the only food she will pick up and put in her mouth.

Bottle Caps Are Fun Toys

Bridgette just started scooting. Today she scooted the most and farthest ever!! It was so much fun watching her problem solve and try to move her body as much as she could. Who would have ever thought that she would care so much about playing with a cap to her bottle? Why do we buy toys? Soon she will be crawling all over the place!

Pictures finally!!

Here are the 7 month pictures. We were not as successful as last month but we got a few good ones. Maybe next month will be better =)
