Caroline Grace {11 Months}


Caroline Grace,

Let's pretend you're not turning ONE in a few weeks.

Love,
Mommy

11 Month Highlights:
  • Grandma and Grandpa sent your birthday present early and you now ride around town in the Britax Marathon Click Tight Car Seat. You still dramatically scream and sob from the second we put you in the car until the second we pull you out. It makes for lovely long rides. If one more mom tells me how much their baby "loved" car rides and would just fall asleep the second the car started moving...
  • Two awful stomach bugs.
  • Still a napping champ (2 long naps a day) and love to sleep on us for your naps at home on the weekends.
  • So wreckless all.the.time. Seat belts don't work on you in shopping carts or your hi chair. At daycare the other day your teacher had to quickly grab you after finding you standing (and clapping) in your chair. You also like to freak us all out by trying to jump off your changing table during diaper changes.
  • Tricks: waving, clapping, lip smacking/popping, 5 second temper tantrums, standing unassisted for a few seconds, taking one step, dancing and saying dadda.
  • Down to about 12 ounces of Earth's Best Organic Formula a day. New favorite foods this month include chicken nuggets, grilled cheese, bagels...aaaaand we're not against shoving french fries at you when we eat out to keep you happy.

  1. I love your little mommy outfit! Are you sure you're having a second? You're so tiny!

  2. Awe! She would give me a heart attack after hearing that too. My son just started to crawl and I'm not ready for him to be mobile.

  3. Those are seriously the BEST high chairs. I am about to ditch my fabric covered one because I am so tired of cleaning it and finding surprises every time I remove the cover.

    1. Our current high chair has fabric and we have to clean it SOOO much. Caroline likes to turn around and touch it with her messy hands, wipe her face on it, etc. Such a pain!

  7. So adorable! I loved watching the glee on both your faces on the slide video.

  8. Oh my goodness Caroline is so adorable! At least her cuteness helps her being a handful sometimes ;)

  9. We're so not against French fries either. If it keeps her happy at a restaurant long enough for my husband and I to enjoy a beer, we'll do anything. Haha!

  10. What a little cutie you have! I love that sweater you are wearing in the slide video! Where is it from?

  11. She's getting so big!! What kind of high chair is that? Half the time Sophie won't even sit in hers. I'm not going to lie, I cried when Sophie turned one.

    2. Can't wait to read it! Sophie is a mess when it comes to highchair feeding, half the time we give up on feeding her in it, because most of the food is on the chair.

  13. Time is flying! She is getting cuter and cuter. Is that the Ikea Antilop highchair? If so, how do you like it? Any pros and cons so far?

  14. oh my goodness. that video of you, caroline, and charlie melts my heart.

  15. She is a doll! From one Mommy to another, PLEASE adjust her straps in her carseat. The straps need to be coming from below her shoulders since she is rear facing and the top of the chest clip needs to be at armpit level. Here is a good website for reference:
