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.
