Grace @ 11 months (with growth chair pics, too!)

Getting this month's growth chair pic was an adventure in and of itself!  And let me preface this by saying.....that just 2 months ago when sitting her in her chair.....she would just smile and bounce up and down....thinking she was hot snot, or something.

This is no longer the case.

I sat her in her chair with Parker for their traditional picture together.  Nothing doing!



Let the fun begin!  Try #1.






Try #3 (Try #2 is not pictured just because I was trying to cut down on the number of pics I posted.  But now I realize that attempt was merely futile.)




Poor baby!


Ok- so this next picture kind of make me feel a little bit sorry for her.  She's just looking at me.


Try #4





Try #5
This time I went for reinforcements.  I got her cheddar puffs.  I had it in my hand.  
Not interested.


See....look....food.....you love this!



Love this face.  "Soooooo sad......but ok.....I guess I'll take that puff from you!"


Try #6 - So let's try it again with puff in hand.  Nope!!!



If you're not laughing outloud at this point, I don't know what to tell you (then again- I am partial).  She is sitting here, boo-hooing.....but obviously not too upset to eat her precious puffs!



Try #7
DING, DING, DING!!  We have a winner!  Put the actual container of puffs IN the chair with her!  Haha!


Parker is waiting so patiently here.  She really wants to go help little sis out.  (Really- she just wanted 'her turn' to sit in the chair.)


"TA-DAH!!!!!!" (cue music)











Little turkey!!!!



But like all good things.....her happiness in the chair did come to an end.




And the winner for her official 11 months growth photo:



Only one more photo to add.  Uuuuuuh!  Can't believe it.  3 more weeks to go. :/

________________________________


What she's been up to......


-when she drops something 'accidentally'...she says "uh-uuuh!" (trying to say uh-oh). 


- wearing size 12 mo; size 3 diapers

-nurses 4 times a day- 7ish-, 11-ish, 3-ish, 7-ish. I am starting to ween this week....replacing 1 feeding per week until there are no more!

-loves her sister. she will just watch and watch her. her whole face brightens when parker walks into the room. i love the bond that they already share.

-depending on what is going on and whether or not she is distracted....she will try to say the words that I am asking her to say. she does not say the following words consistently, but has and will say them on occasion: tee (tree); cheeeee (with her voice intonation becoming more high pitched as she says it....just like when I say it when I am asking her to "Cheese!"); mama; dada; baba;

-showing more interest in wanting to walk....and becoming more stable when she is walking holding onto something (a push toy or holding my hands).


I feel like she is doing SO much, but when I sit down to write...it's like my mind is blank.  Hmmmm.

Grace Jean-


We love you to pieces.  You have added so much to our family!  Not a day goes by that you don't make me smile and laugh.  You know what you want, and you are not afraid to let us know!  Looking forward to the coming months and watching you grow and learn so much more!


I love you!


Momma

And now for a sneak peak of her one year cake pics.  Don't mean to ruin it 3 weeks early and all....but I just couldn't help myself.


It was Giant Cupcake v. Grace.





I think Grace won.  ;)

Thanks to Momies patience there were a lot of pictures. Granny
would have had the bottom red after
the first 3. Sorry Mom where is
your authority?

Kim said...

Those pictures are hilarious! Guess she really has a love/hate relationship with her chair. :-) And I love the photo where big sis is looking on and the rest of the photo is blurry. Just seemed to capture such a real moment of life. Happy New Year!

Hehe. Nothing like a little bribery and corruption.
