Vivienne: 11 months

I can't wait until we're done doing these monthly photo sets - only one more month to go!
It was fun when she was younger but now she just gets all grumpy and refuses to smile.
She seriously acts just like a teenager sometimes...it's scary. 
Today was one of those days. 
She just pouted, pulled out her pigtails, tried to run away...you know. 
Though soon after Viv's monthly pictures are done with, we'll have another baby to sit in this pink chair for pictures every month!

I'm going to be pretty vague on this month's post.
Viv is still growing and learning new things every day, she amazes us with every new thing.
She runs around like crazy from morning until night.
She never stops being happy and cheerful (unless of course you stick her in a chair for pictures).
She's still sleeping a solid 10 hours every night and we're down to one nap a day from around 1-3 every day.
Sometimes she'll take a 30 minute nap in the evening but we try and keep her awake or else she likes to stay up until midnight. Ugh.

She eats everything in sight.
She'll eat from the time she gets up until she goes to bed at night.
When she wakes up in the morning and scoots off the bed and runs to the kitchen and pulls out whatever she can find from the shelf and just starts stuffing her face.
She's still breastfeeding but mostly just to go to sleep now and sometimes for comfort.
When she nurses for comfort it's usually if she's cranky and only for a few minutes.
I'm hoping that she keeps nursing until the new baby comes so that I don't have to go through having my milk come in again and so I'm used to a baby nursing still.

She talks and babbles, sings and laughs all day long.
I sometimes can't handle how adorable she is! 
Her favorite thing is to dance and sing to music - she's so wild and crazy!
We got her a little keyboard for Christmas and there's a microphone attached to it, so she drags the piano around all over while she sings into the microphone - seriously, it's so cute.

I just can't believe how fast she's growing up and that in one month from now she's going to be a year old! 
We were planning on having a big birthday bash for her with all of her friends and our family but I'm just so tired from Christmas that I think I'm just going to keep things really small. We'll probably just have our immediate family over for cake or something. 
Josh wants to take her out to get a cupcake and to the kid's play museum for her birthday so that will be fun! 
When she's older we'll do big parties with all her friends but for now I think it's more fun just to keep things small and not so chaotic!
