11 Months Old

  • Zoe is about 20lbs and I have no idea how long.
  • Zoe is wearing 9 months clothes and some 12 and size 3 diapers.
  • Zoe is wearing size 2 shoes....when she doesn't rip them off!
  • Zoe has blonde hair that is growing and growing and even has a little bit of curl.
  • Zoe is being weaned from formula at the moment. She has 2 bottles a day now. One in the morning and one at night with 2 ounces of formula and 5 ounces of milk. Our goal is to have her at 7 ounces of milk, in a week.
  • Zoe hates her milk cold!
  • Zoe loves food! She loves fruits, especially bananas, mandarine oranges, apples, and grapes!
  • Zoe is a talking machine. She says "da da", "ma ma", "mmmm" when she is eating, "yum", she barks like a dog when she sees her stuffed animal, "no no" and shakes her head, "hey" and tries to say "bite" but it is more just the "b" sound.
  • Zoe loves to scream, squeal, whine, sing, hum.....and this goes on almost all day!
  • Zoe is feeding herself everything now....including anything she can find on the floor...and I mean anything.
  • Zoe is crawling like a pro, cruising on whatever she get her hands on, and trying to stand on her own. She can for just a couple seconds!
  • Zoe loves playing with her walker and pushes it all over the house like she owns the place.
  • Zoe sleeps amazingly. She takes 3 naps for between 1-2 hours a day and sleeps all night long.
  • Zoe sings in the car with me.....some part of me got in her since obviously my looks did not.
  • Zoe is sitting face forward in her big girl car seat.
  • Zoe is drinking from a sippy cup, when I remember to give it to her.
  • Zoe loves to go to stores and look at everything.
  • Zoe had one cold this past month....and still has not gone to the doctor for a sick visit. So proud of that immune system!
  • Zoe looks just like her Daddy. I have lost hope of her looking like me.
  • Zoe loves to open and close any door and now plays pic-a-boo behind them.
  • Zoe crawls straight into the bathroom the minute she hears the water running for her bath. This is probably her favorite time.
  • Zoe is obsessed with her Violet dog, especially at 4:00am when we would hear it barking or singing a song to her. Needless to say, Violet has been moved from her crib to the dresser.
  • Zoe loves to point and is really communicating to us through this. If she wants more, she points at the food and she points at what she wants to play with.
  • Zoe will not, for the life of her, keep a bow in her hair.
  • Zoe still sucks her thumb.
  • Zoe only has 2 teeth still...but her top gums feel like one will be here very soon.
  • Zoe loves to share things with us, especially while she is eating. She is constantly giving us bites.
  • Zoe loves to be outside and swing or play in her walker.
  • Zoe favors waffles to pancakes.
  • Zoe loves to pull all her book off her bookshelf and is really interested in flipping all the pages of the cardboard books.
  • Zoe is scared of heights. She doesn't liked to be set down on higher surfaces like a table, Zach's truck bed, things like that. She just starts shaking and reaching to hold us.
  • Zoe gives lots of kisses and makes the "muah" sound.
  • Zoe loves to play on the couch. She crawls from one side to the other....over and over. Which explains why we have a new location for pictures this month. Zoe would NOT sit still.
  • Zoe has had no signs of stranger anxiety.
  • Zoe plays in the nursery at Church and loves it.
  • Zoe smiles with her whole face and I just love it!
  • Zoe is just the best thing in my life! I can't believe she is almost 1 year old!

Hey Becca, Love all the pictures! Can't believe that she is almost 1 either. And such a great smile. I was looking through some "old" pictures tonight of Julie and Zoe reminds me so much of her. I can't believe Juliebean will be 10 in just a couple of days! It seems like just yesterday she was turning one.
