Claire's adjusted age today is 11 months old! You will remember that preemies are looked at by their adjusted age instead of their real age by doctors when figuring out if they are developmentally on track. So even though Claire is really almost 14 months old, she should only be 11 months old based on her due date.
So what is Claire doing at 11 months adjusted age? She is babbling a lot! She loves to say "da da" and "daddy", is starting to try to say "cat", "ball", and lots of other sounds like "bree", "be", "oooohhh", etc.
Claire is pulling up on everything! She usually just holds on with one hand now and has also started walking down the table or the couch as she holds on.
She is still eating mostly baby foods. Claire loves spaghetti, oranges, baby puffs, rice, pudding, and bread too. She hasn't figured out the sippy cup but we continue to work with it.
Claire is not consistent on sleeping or napping at all. One night she will sleep the whole night, and then the next she is up for 1-2 hours in the middle of the night. Napping is the same way. Some days she will sleep 1-2 hours in the morning and 1 hour in the afternoon while other days she only sleeps 20-30 minutes the entire day.
Claire loves Elmo, music, her piano, biting her stuffed dogs nose, your cell phone, laptop, or tv changer. She also loves watching Sprout TV on Saturday mornings and loves to watch the news and weather at night. Claire is noticing the Christmas commercials on tv and will stop mid-stride when she hears the Christmas music and just smile at the tv.
I am not sure exactly how much she weighs but I am thinking probably 20.5 pounds. She is wearing 12 month clothes and can still fit into some 6-9 month things. She has finally graduated to a size 3 shoe!
Claire's hair can be very curly on humid days. The back of her hair has always had a different texture than the top of her head. That's where more of the curls are. It's so cute! She still only has 7 teeth - 4 on top and 3 on the bottom, but those things are sharp as she likes to bite me!
Claire and her daddy have a language all to themselves and they "talk" back and forth to each other. When I ask what they are talking about, Trent says it's a secret.
Claire loves lights, to be outside, animals, wind chimes, and being at home.
I think she sounds like a typical 11 month old?!?! We love her so very much and wouldn't change anything about her for the world!
