11th month

Language. She continues with the babble. she loves to say Shhh, mama, dada, Ttttt, and a very high pitched soul piercing scream. We definitely have a talker on our hands.

Motor Skills. She has moved on from crawling being second nature to walking in her walker being second nature. It took her about 10min to figure out she could walk with the walker. She has completely mastered the art of moving. She even learned how climb stairs, that was a total shock since we dont have stairs for her to practice on.. She still loves to run crawl away from mommy and daddy when she is getting into things she is not supposed to. She is also starting to master the art of standing. she can stand unassisted for about 10-20 seconds.

Growing up. she has started mimicking things mommy and daddy do. she shocked me one afternoon I stuck my tongue out at her and she stuck it back out at me. I almost died laughing. she also mimics words we say along with clapping and waving.

6 weeks

Weigh-in: 124lbs

Waist Measurements:  33 inches

Belly Shot:

Pregnancy Symptoms: Slight nausea. Barely noticeable but definitely there. Fatigue

What our baby looks like this week:  This week's major developments: The nose, mouth, and ears that you'll spend so much time kissing in eight months are beginning to take shape. If you could see into your uterus, you'd find an oversize head and dark spots where your baby's eyes and nostrils are starting to form. His emerging ears are marked by small depressions on the sides of the head, and his arms and legs by protruding buds. His heart is beating about 100 to 160 times a minute — almost twice as fast as yours — and blood is beginning to course through his body. His intestines are developing, and the bud of tissue that will give rise to his lungs has appeared. His pituitary gland is forming, as are the rest of his brain, muscles, and bones. Right now, your baby is a quarter of an inch long, about the size of a lentil

  • Has tripled or even quadrupled in size and is now three or four entire millimeters long! Godzilla baby!
  • Is working on growing a nose, some ears and a mouth.
  • Is also growing flappy little leg and arm buds.
  • Has a heartbeat that can be seen on an ultrasound — 100 to 160 beats per minute.
