Mya hit her eleven month mark today...
Mya changed a lot this past month and seems so much older all of the sudden. Last months she was cautiously crawling around the room, but this month she's a speedy little crawler, going from room to room, pulling herself up to everything, climbing stairs (yikes! she can make it up our whole staircase!), opening drawers and getting into things. It's busy keeping track of her now, but it's fun to see her excitement in exploring every inch of our house.
She still has a hearty appetite, nursing 3-4 times a day and joining us with table food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She will eat almost anything, including any random left-overs from the fridge. Her favorites are strawberries, bananas, mashed potatoes, or any kind of homemade bread or rolls.
She goes to bed between 7-7:30 pm and wakes up at 7 am. She naps from 9-11 in the morning and 2-4:30 in the afternoon. One of Mya's silliest times of the day is bedtime. She and Bryn are in bed at 7, but they usually spend a half hour goofing off in bed. Bryn sings, Mya babbles, and they both end up with the giggles until finally they doze off. It is so funny. Sometimes Bryn falls asleep before Mya does and Mya is left, standing up in her crib, babbling and laughing on her own, trying to keep the party going.
Bryn and Mya are three and a half years apart, but they really are such good buds. Bryn is such a little "mother" to Mya and Mya just thinks Bryn is the coolest thing around. I love watching them interact all day and I'm so grateful that they have each other.
Other than her increased mobility, Mya's new skills this month were learning how to wave hello and say "Hi". It actually sounds more like "He-eh", but she does it with the same voice inflection as "Hi" and it is the cutest thing ever. Whenever Josh or I walk in the room or get her from her crib she waves her little hand and says a big "hi". Cute cute cute. She still doesn't say "mama", but I'll take what I can get!
