Finley Jane :: Eleventh Month



Week Forty-Five



Week Forty-Six



Week Forty-Seven




Weight/Length
I feel like little miss packed on the weight this past month! I'm going to guess 18 pounds and 27 inches long.

Sleep
She is still sleeping through the night! She had a bit of a cold for about a week, so during that time she was waking up a bit more. Other than that, it's been smooth sailing. She takes two naps on average.

Eating
Such a little piggy! This girl loves her bottle and wants it every two hours, on the dot. She's drinking out of a sippy cup really well! She will eat everything that's put in front of her and enjoys feeding herself the most. Oyster crackers are her go to snack.

Diapers
Same

Clothing
Whatever fits! Mostly 9 month clothing. Still a few 6-9 and even the occasional 6 month. Sometimes I'll put her in 12 month, just because I'm ready for her to wear different things. Size 2 shoe.

Mood
Finley is happiest when she has independent play time. She really enjoys playing with her toys. We started watching Sesame Street and she loves it! She's not as cuddly or kissy this month. She likes to play but doesn't want the loving part.

LOVES
music
dancing
peek-a-boo
bath time
splashing
gibbering
her bottle
"bing, bing song"

DOESN'T LOVE
her car seat
diaper changes
being told no

What I Want To Remember
how she says "dog"
her smile
the way she plays with my hair when she's falling asleep
rasberries
how much she likes to play

Milestones
4 teeth on top! That makes 6 total.

Finley Jane :: Tenth Month




Week Thirty-Nine



Week Forty



Week Forty-One



Week Forty-Two



Week Forty-Three



Week Forty-Four




Weight/Length
We don't go back to the doctor until her 1 year check-up. I don't feel like she grew a whole lot in this past month. I'm going to guess a little over 17 pounds and maybe 26.5 inches long

Sleep
She officially sleeps through the night! It's 100% consistent, but pretty darn close. She's going strong with 2 naps a day, ranging from 1-2 hours!

Eating
Finley spent most of the entire month battling thrush. It wasn't bad in her mouth but caused a pretty severe diaper rash. It was extremely painful for me though. I decided to stop nursing when it wasn't going away with medication. She's full time formula fed now. I have her on Enfamil A.R.She switched with hardly no issues. For the first week, I had trouble getting her to sleep at night. She's still eating table food and really enjoys standing up to eat.

Diapers
Luvs size 3.

Clothing
In mostly 6-9 month. She can wear a few 9 month pieces but a lot are still too big for her.

Mood
Her mood wasn't the greatest this month because of the thrush. She's still a sweety who likes to cuddle. She gets really angry if she doesn't get her way and enjoys trying everything on her own. She really likes her dad.

LOVES
petting the animals
feeding herself
gibbering
getting into everything that she can
taking everything out of a bag or bin
being naked

DOESN'T LOVE
diaper changes
getting in her car seat
having socks on

What I Want To Remember
sloppy, biting kisses
"mama"
the way she scrunches up her nose to smile
her little teeth
how much she likes the animals
how she plays with her sister
her smile when I get home

Finley Jane :: Ninth Month

Week Thirty Five



Week Thirty Six


Week Thirty Seven



Week Thirty Eight



Weight/Length
We actually had a doctor visit this month! Finley now weighs 16.9 pounds and is 26 inches long. She's smaller than I thought, but her pediatrician wasn't concerned. She is still in the lower 25% for both weight and height.

Sleep
We have good nights and bad night. On a good night, she sleeps through the night and is up around 7:00. On a bad night, she's up 2-3 times for almost an hour each time. It's exhausting. She will sometimes nap really well. Like, 2-3 times for a long period of time. But sometimes she is almost impossible to get to sleep and then will nap for like 20 minutes. 

Eating
We are still going strong with nursing. She eats all the table food she can get her hands on. She really loves yogurt and Cheeto Puffs. Her main source of nutrients is still breast milk, so I'm not too pushy on her eating three big meals of table food.

Diapers
Still in size 3. Still loving Luvs.

Clothing
She is still in mostly 6 month clothing. A few 6-9 and even a few small 9 month. I just packed up her 3-6 month clothing. Baby girl is tiny.

Mood
What a drama queen! Finley is very particular and doesn't like it when she doesn't get her way. She's doing a lot better with her dad, which is amazing. She is whiny and needy, but is also very sweet and loving. 

LOVES
her activity table
baths
taking all of the toys out of their bins
eating
baths
talking
waving
giving kisses
hugging

DOESN'T LOVE
diaper changes
getting dressed
having to wait, for anything
being told no

What I Want To Remember
the way she hangs on my neck when she's hugging
her playing
waving to her dad
her little smiles
the noises she makes
her dance moves
crouching

Milestones
waving while saying hi
"hi dad"
"nananana"
walking around the furniture
