"Bobby ate my hand"

Ilya is 11 Months!

Ilya is 11 months old!

This month she has really started showing her little personality. She is such a sweet little baby. Everyone comments on how easy she seems to be. She's a little doll. She wears size 2 diapers and 9-12 months clothes. She's eating all sorts of meats, fruits, vegetables and cereals. She still is on formula but only for one more month! She takes 1-2 naps a day and usually goes to bed between 10pm and 11pm. One morning last week she slept until 10:45am. I'm hoping to get her into an earlier bedtime routine, but I do like having a few hours in the evening to just focus on her and play with her. She loves playing with the toys in the toy box. She's very wiggly though and likes to be on the move! She's so curious and everything is a toy. She's crawling and pulling herself up to furniture. I bet it won't be long before she's walking. She's growing very quickly!  I don't have a current weight for her as her next appointment is in September. I'd guess she's between 18 and 19 pounds. We love our little Illy and are so thankful God added her to our family!

What's Hap-pee-nin'

Potty training Bobby has gone a lot better than I thought it would. He even has graduated to using the "bafroom" rather than the potty chair. Sometimes I find him like this.

He wanted to wear his dad's exercise shorts. 

The kids had croup (and Bellie had a double ear infection) last week. One evening he fell asleep while I was working in the kitchen. 

Ilya likes to scrunch her nose and blow out of it. I think it's so cute and reminds me of my brother because he used to do that when he was little. 

It was hot the last few days, so I filled up the kiddie pool, water table and the sprinkler, but they preferred playing in the playpen with Ilya. Figures. 

Anytime the kids play outside they always want to pee on the tree. This is a common sight nowadays.
