Our Five Ring Circus: 11 months

11 months


My baby girl is 11 months old today! 

I'm not going to lie.  It's very bittersweet.  It seems impossible that almost a year has gone by since I first laid eyes on her.  And now?  The infant stage has almost passed.  In just a few short weeks, my baby will be one.

She is already a toddler in many ways.  She is a pro at walking, and now attempting to go faster.  She refuses to let me feed her, so she's learning how to use utensils.  Those colorful cubes of homemade purees are wasting away in the freezer.   She only breastfeeds 2-3 times a day now, and it's quick.  She's talking more, and learns something new everyday.

This toddler stage is so much fun, but I am mourning the thought of the baby stage coming to an end.  It's hitting me so hard that this may have been my last time having a baby.  I'm putting the emphasis on may have been...I'm certain I want another someday.  I just need to completely convince my husband!

Liliana brings so much joy to our lives!  Every morning, for the past 11 months, I have been greeted by her smiling face.  I treasure those moments.  I treasure her.

Happy 11 months, my sweet Lilybug!


  1. I know exactly what you mean. Macy is a "walker" now too and I am so excited for her, yet I am sad to see the baby days go. We also don't know if we'll have another. The thought of never experiencing this all again makes me so sad.

  2. Continue making more babies ;)!
    Kidding aside, I hear you on the convincing your hubby. Story of my life.

  3. Time goes by so quickly!!!! Happy 11 months, Lily!!!

  4. Hard to believe she is almost one. She was just born!

    She is too cute :)

  5. I feel your pain. XO And A *loved* that pic! Happy 11 months Lily!!

  6. Wow this has been a fast year! Congrats to Lily on walking! I'm terrified that Jackson will figure it out before we get this place baby proofed! I can't believe they are getting so big! Happy 11 months Lily :)


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
