Hobbit Door

Sunday, September 12, 2010

Baby at the hobbit door at Bellevue Botanical GardensAlmost 11 months, and baby is getting better and better at standing on her own. She even tries standing in public now, and she can stand for a lot longer, about 5-10 seconds. She either lets go of something that she was leaning on (usually us) or she pushes up from the floor with her hands or rises from a squat. She still hasn't taken steps on her own, but I'm sure that will come in due time. She started walking with daddy holding one hand. How cute!

Baby is also starting to point at things that she wants or is interested in. Like pointing at mommy or daddy when she sees a picture of us, a toy she wants to play with, or birds at her bird feeder.

She is showing a strong interest in other babies as she is entertained watching them for a while. She also enjoys looking at, and pointing at, babies in pictures.

Still have some challenges in the sleep department, but nap times are getting a little better. I don't know if that is a result of the practice of letting her nap in the car or just developmental. During the day, when she starts to get tired, clumsy and cranky, rubbing her eyes, I feed her and lie down with her, and she takes a nap for about 1-2 hours. That happens at least once a day. Knock on wood, I haven't had to Pikkolo her and do housework to put her to sleep lately.

Bedtime is hit or miss depending on the day. Some evenings I feed her and she goes to sleep without a fuss. Sometimes she gets all squirrelly and has to cry out her excess energy before calling it a night. It might be based on the timing of her day time naps (late naps -- bad!), or activities that day, or a combination of both.
