up! (11.5 months old)



Adelaide is now 11.5 months old! She has two top teeth and two bottom teeth.She is a good eater, and loves chomping on broccoli especially. Her other favourite foods are yogurt, sharp cheddar cheese, peas, toast strips, and rice.

Addie loves to dance, climb up the stairs, and feed dinner guests her peas. She can stand on her own for a few seconds now. She loves the cats so much and bellows when she spots them, and they seem to like her, too. She loves to climb all over Elliot, who just kind of lies there ever so patiently - poor guy. Adelaide is also fond of Otto (my mom's golden retriever) and enjoys climbing all over him and examining his eyelashes, nose, and whiskers. He is so in heaven when she does this!

Her little dance that she does is amazing - she kind of resembles Forrest Gump when doing so. Its amazing to me that she just knows how to and wants to dance. I guess some things you are just born with!

We are beginning to prepare for Addie's first birthday party which we will be having on February 17th. If you are not completely bored and happen to still be reading this post, any first birthday party suggestions?

A hit at my daughters 1st birthday were these little teddies (complete with vests) made from recycled fabrics. We had one for each small person.

i did circus theme without creepy clowns. i used pinwheels for decoration, tickets for the invite and popcorn bags for the favors. not super girlie but just a quick suggestion. ps. are you ever going to sell anymore paper packs? i used mine up and would love some more.

For first birthday parties, I'd say keep them short and sweet, and if you can, rope in someone else to help do the organising. The nicest one I've been to had no theme, and was just a nice group of people, some delicious food and some great weather (not always an option, I know).

no ideas, but she is so precious.

I just remember there was cake and hats at her first birthday. Just relatives and keeping in short was good. You don't want them to get overwhelmed. She's a cutie!

p.s. we had a nice lunch party for both of our girl's 1st birthdays. It was sweet to share a meal with our friends + family to celebrate all the work and joy of the previous 12 months...plus of course lots of cupcakes.
