11 Months Old!

I know I say this every month, but I can't believe my princess is already 11 months old!  I'm sure I say this every month as well, but this has been one of my favorite months so far.  Peyton has SO much personality and has learned so much in the past month.  Every month it's like she's this totally new person.  She's constantly finding new ways to express herself.  We don't have an official doctor's appointment until 12 months, so I have "stats" to share.  But here's a little bit about my munchkin at 11 months...

  • She talks all.the.time.
  • Points to different body parts when you ask her where they, ear, nose, belly, toes, and mouth.
  • Goes to bed at 7:30pm, wakes between 7am and 7:30am.
  • Naps around 10am and 3pm....except Sundays.
  • Eats 3 meals a day and 2 snacks.
  • Loves water in her sippy cup.
  • Loves basically anything Edwin and I are eating.
  • Waves at everyone and everything.
  • Is finally easing up with the separation anxiety and clinginess.  They say it peaks between 12 and 18 months, but I swear hers peaked around 9 months and is now starting to ease off. 
  • She's still unsure of strange adults (mainly men), but has NEVER had any shyness around other kids/babies.  This kid LOVES other kids and will jump from my arms to go play.  I always feel bad for other little ones that are more reserved with new kids, because Peyton goes straight to them and just doesn't understand why they don't jump to play with her....I love it lol. 
  • Throws her arms up in the air when we yell "Touchdown".
  • Pants like a dog when we say "What does Otis do?"  (he's a pug so he has loud breathing)
  • Says "woof woof, kitty kitty, Mama, Dada, bird"...and a zillion other things in her own language :)
  • Has 2 speeds...Full throttle and asleep.
  • Loves to dance, whether there's music playing or not.
  • Has just recently started to lay down and give us some cuddle time during the day.
  • Stands on her own for short periods of time and walks behind her walking toys, but doesn't seem to concerned with learning to walk on her own yet.  She knows she can get where she wants much faster by crawling for the moment. 
  • Is a complete and total camera ham...see below!
