Genevieve, you are ONE YEAR old!
What are you up to these days?
  • You weigh a little over 20 pounds.
  • You are in the 25th percentile for weight and the 50th percentile for height.
  • You wear a size 4 diaper and 12 month to 18 month clothing.
  • You love to move now, you very rarely stay in one place for too long (Exhibit A: the photo at the top of this post in which you have no time to pose for a picture)!
  • Although you love to move, you still don't crawl, pull up on furniture, or cruise on furniture so your doctor has decided that you need a little physical therapy. We'll see if that helps you decide that crawling is easier than scooting.
  • We had a great time at your first birthday party! It has been a great year! We love you very much. Happy birthday, sweet girl!***Most of these pictures were taken by Cameron. Thanks Cameron!!!

11 Months Old

Genevieve, you're ELEVEN months old!
What are you up to these days?
  • You weigh about 19 1/2 pounds.
  • You now wear a size 4 diaper.
  • You wear 12 month clothing.
  • Not much has changed this month. You still love to eat big girl food. You are very fond of veggies, not so much with the fruit.
  • Your sleep routine is still roughly the same. You take a nap at 10:00 and 2:00. On the weekdays we have to wake you up at 6:00, but on the weekends you let us sleep until 7:30 or 8:00. We are so lucky (of course, I realize that now that I've said that you will decide it is totally uncool to sleep in)! **I have also realized that I win the grand prize for putting a record number of "thats" in one sentence!**
  • You have learned how to hold up one finger when someone asks you how old you are! Too cute!
  • You know what lions, dogs, and ducks say. Although, you are not too keen on performing on demand.
  • You still don't crawl, but you have become quite adept at scooting.
  • You have discovered that you have a mind of your own! One day a light bulb went off in your head and you realized that you are separate from your mommy and daddy (sad, but true). If you don't like something or if you want something you know how to voice your opinions!
  • You are maturing quite quickly. I can't believe you are going to be one year old in just one short month.

Snow Day!

It's a SNOW DAY!!! For the first time in many, many years it snowed in Summerville! When we woke up this morning we were greeted by 5-6 inches of beautiful, white SNOW! Ben and I were so excited...some might even say we were giddy!

Genevieve on the other hand was not so excited. Actually she was rather confused.

It took her a little while to warm up to the idea of being thrust into the new chilly substance, but I think she ended up enjoying her time playing.

Ten Months Old

Genevieve, you're TEN months old!
What are you up to?
  • You weigh around 19 pounds.
  • You wear a size 3 diaper.
  • You wear 9-12 months clothing.
  • You LOVE being able to eat "big kid" food. You're favorites this month are bananas and yogurt.
  • You have been at a new daycare for about a month now. We all absolutely love it! You are in the crawler room, you do a craft project at least once a day, and you have music class once a week.
  • You sleep very well. You take naps at 10:00, 2:00, and sometimes a catnap at 5:00. Then you go to bed at 7:00. On weekdays when Mommy and Daddy have to go to work we wake you up at 6:00, but on the weekends you usually sleep in until 7:30 or 8:00.
  • You are such a people person. You love when we go places because it gives you a chance to watch people. You also draw a lot of attention! We can't go anywhere without someone commenting on how cute you are and a lot of people are mesmerized by your big, beautiful, blue eyes. I don't blame them though...I am too!
  • You have TWO teeth now! Your bottom left tooth came in one day before you turned nine months old and the bottom right tooth popped through exactly one week later.
  • You are still trying to master crawling. You either push your arms up and keep your knees down or you put your knees up and keep your arms down. This causes you to either scoot backward or scrape your face along the carpet. Both of which are very annoying, I imagine!
  • You love to clap you hands, wave goodbye, and blow kisses!
  • You have grown by leaps and bounds and we are so proud of you!

Nine Months Old

Genevieve, you're NINE months old!

What are you up to?
  • You weigh 18 1/2 pounds.
  • You are 26 3/4 inches tall.
  • You still wear a size 3 diaper.
  • You are transitioning into the 9-12 month sized clothing. However, a couple of your 6-9 months outfits still fit.
  • You now have a valid reason to own a toothbrush! That's right, you finally have a tooth! Your bottom, left tooth made it's debut the day before you turned nine months old.
  • You make a really cute face now that your gums aren't bare. I'm not exactly sure why you do it, but sometimes when you start laughing you squeeze your eyes closed and scrunch your nose. I think you know you are adorable!
  • You now take baths in the big girl tub...without any padded walls to protect you! You love the freedom of the wide open bathtub!
  • Finger foods have been a huge hit! Your favorite food right now is grilled cheese sandwiches. Rather than putting all of the pieces on your tray, I have to be careful to only put a few on your tray at a time...otherwise you try to shove all of the pieces into your mouth! You don't really like when I do that, but it is better than choking, my dear.
  • You still would rather roll around to get places rather than crawl. However, you can now stand up when we stand you against something.
  • You are still such a wonderful baby! Everyday your daddy and I thank God for allowing us to be your parents!
