11 Months Old

Isabella has been exploring new textures lately with her food. She enjoys eating things she can pick up herself and often tries to grab the spoon from us when she's being fed. As her one year birthday approaches we have been working on eating "finger foods". She's a pro at feeding herself Cheerios. Lately she's ventured out to carrots, peas, blueberries and even watermelon.

For her 11 month birthday today she tried grapes. As you can tell from the following video, she has a blossoming personality. Out in public people often comment that Isabella is always quiet. But get her home or around people she knows well and she'll "talk" your ear off!

The video is long, but don't miss out on the last minute. She throws in her favorite new noise - growling! She did this the other day VERY loudly while we were walking inside Hobby Lobby. Luckily, no one was close enough to our cart to hear her. Ha!

In a couple of weeks we'll head to the beach and then soon after we'll have her first birthday party. Stay tuned for pictures!

PS - She's pretty funny with her sippy cup. She's on intermittently interested in juice.
