HOLY COW, I've really been slacking on the blog lately! We've had a lot going on around here including Christmas and June's birthday! But, before I can do a 12 month update, I have to do the 11 month one. First things first ;) Good thing I've been keeping notes on my phone, otherwise I would never remember what happened when. So, without further ado...
JLC is 11 months old!
The most important thing that happened between 10 and 11 months was, June started crawling (finally!)
I had resigned myself to the fact that she would probably never crawl. I figured she would roll everywhere until she learned how to walk haha. And then one day, she just got on her hands and knees and started crawling around.
Yay June Bug!
June also learned how to blow kisses this month. She puts her hand up to her mouth and tries to make a kissing sound, "mmba."
She still LOVES books. She likes to crawl into her room, pull all of the books off the shelf and flip through the pages. Then when she sees me, she will hold one up towards me to get me to read it to her. Little book worm :)
June is still a little chow hound. She loves any and all food. We taught her to sign "more" when she wants more food. She basically spends the entire meal clapping her hands together and screaming until she gets more food on her tray. We are also teaching her the sign for "all done," but she never does that one because she never thinks she's all done!
She has also mastered the sippy cup.
June said her first word this month! Dog, which she pronounces, "Dg" or sometimes, "Dg Dg"
She says it when she sees Oscar, dogs on TV, stuffed animal dogs, etc.
We took her to the aquarium in Denver and they had an exhibit with a tiger. When she saw the tiger through the glass she said, "Dg Dg!" You can kind of see the tiger in the picture above.
June loves music and dancing. When she hears music, she bounces up and down and smiles from ear to ear. She loved playing with the piano at our friend, Joe's, house :)
JLC got two new top teeth this month. She's a little champ, and it didn't even seem to bother her. She now has 6 teeth total.
She also celebrated her first Thanksgiving. Both sets of Grandparents came to Pueblo and we all ate Thanksgiving dinner with the football team. June ate turkey, sweet potatoes, bread, stuffing, green beans and pumpkin pie. She loved every bite, of course!
It was another wonderful month with our June Bug!
