Avery-11 Months

Age 11 Months

Weight 20ish pounds

Length Not sure, Will be measured at her one year appointment.

Clothing size Still can wear a couple 9 month stuff but 12 Months fits the best. Size 3 Diapers

Hair Still full and beautiful. 

Teeth Still only the 2 she got at around 6 months. I always think she is teething but nothing new has popped through.

Sleeping Better but still all over the place really. She usually takes 2 naps a day. A shorter morning nap and a longer afternoon nap. Night time sleeping is sporadic. She will have an occasional night that she sleeps all night but then other nights she will be up once or twice. 

Eating Awesome! She will eat pretty much anything you give her. Even though she only has two little chompers. Favorites are any kind of fruit, mac and cheese, graham crackers.

Movement One day before her 11 month day she took her first steps! She is going to be full on walking anytime now. 

Milestones Walking!

Favorite toys/activities She loves torturing the dog, the pop up princess tent and chewing on anything she can get her hands on. She love taking walks in the wagon and watching her big sis.

Words & sounds She says Mama, Dadda, and Dixie and makes plenty of other noises.

What we love This age is just so cute. Watching her discover the world around her is amazing.

What we don’t love She is sick right now with a cough and runny nose. Sleep last night was horrible. I really hope she can recover quickly.

What we’re looking forward to next month Her 1st Birthday!

-The sickies have hit our household. My allergies are acting up and Lily has a sore throat and cold. She went to the doctor and was negative for strep but is still feeling pretty bad. And to my two year old feeling bad means acting bad. Tantrums galore up in this house. I just want my sweet baby back

-Our camera is broken. It was in the case and must of fallen off of something because the lens was completely broken off. So I guess we are in the market for a new lens for our Nikon. I wanted one anyway, but would still like to have a spare.

-Tomorrow is Hunger Games day. Technically midnight tonight but I would never be able to stay awake for a midnight showing of any movie. It's just not worth it when you have kids that don't know how to sleep in.

-Our TV has been out since yesterday. We have Direct TV and they have some kind of access card in the box that apparently went bad. They have to send us a new one that we have to pay $20 for and it takes a couple of days. The guy said that they only have a warranty for one year on the card and we have had ours since 2009. I think it is pretty lame that I am losing a couple days of the service I pay for and had to pay more money to get another card. Such a scam.

- I have been in full planning mode for Avery's 1st Bday. We go tomorrow to get some pictures taken. I have made a couple decorations and have some big Pinterest plans. I am going to attempt to make her a dress out of some cute fabric I found. We will see how that goes.

-I sorta just realized that Lily didn't have a lot of summery stuff that still fit her, so I ordered a couple cute things from Old Navy. Including this shirt. Freakin adorable!

And some sisterly love because they are pretty cute

Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

If you are looking for a new way to cook chicken try this out! I found it on Pinterest of course. 

(I know my pictures aren't that great but this was pretty yummy)

The recipe is originally from here.

4 cloves of garlic
4 Tablespoons Butter
1 pound chicken breast (i used tenders)
salt and pepper to taste
6 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

Melt the butter in the frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and let brown a little. Then add the chicken and let cook thoroughly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper as well. Flip the chicken and let both sides brown. When the chicken is cooked through add the brown sugar to the tops and let it melt into the chicken. About 5 Minutes. 

I will make this again for sure.  

It's Okay

It's Okay.....

- That Avery loves Thin Mints as much as I do. I just have someone to share them with now.

- That I think The Bachelor is the most ridiculous show on TV. Why do people watch it? It never works out and the drama and people really aren't that interesting.

- That Lily is out playing in her pool. It is really nice here today and she has been happy for two hours straight which is like a record for a 2 year old.

- That is about all I have this week. I think of good stuff but then forget before I can type it out. Lame I know.

Proof that a two year old does need a daily nap despite what she may think.
