Gracie is 11 months old! This is almost our last monthly update. It went so fast!!
Today’s an extra special day because Dave + I are also celebrating our 4 year anniversary!! Gramma baked an extra special cake today for both occasions 🙂
Gracie is 20 lbs and 28 inches tall!
Gracie has been getting up a little earlier than normal. She’s usually up by 730 now. We hang out and snuggle for a bit then I drink coffee while Gracie plays for a bit. We’ve been taking a long walk in the morning since it’s still sorta cool outside. Gracie loves watching the birds and squirrels so that usually keeps her happy for a while. By abound 10-11 Gracie’s ready for a nap. She usually seeps 2 hours or so. I get ready for the day, blog, read, watch TV, clean, etc. When Gracie wakes up we eat lunch, run errands, play, have fun! Sometimes Gracie will have a second nap, and sometime not- it just depends. If she doesn’t nap, she usually likes to have some downtime of just laying down for a bit. When daddy comes home we eat dinner together and play for a while. Usually we’ll take a walk at night. Then Gracie goes to bed around 8-9!
We’re improving a tiny bit in the sleep department. Gracie still likes to wake up about every 2 hours to nurse but sometimes she’ll surprise me with a 4 hour chunk! I’m trying to get her to sleep only in her pack n play or crib instead of in the bed with us- so hopefully that will help things too! I’m getting used to running on little sleep now.
I’m starting to slowly wean from nursing Gracie and feed more solids now. I nurse her before bed, and maybe 1-2 times during the day. I’m hoping to be done breastfeeding by the time she’s a year. I’ve loved every second of nursing her- it was awesome. But I feel like its really taking a toll on my body. I can’t seem to keep up my energy when breastfeeding her so much. It seems to take a lot out of me. I think Gracie is starting to eat more and more solids so hopefully everything will work out! Everything is so new to us so we’re just winging it!
Gracie wears size 9-12 month clothes and size 3 diaper, although I think I need to move up a size.
