Well I can’t believe it. Just one month until my little tiny girl is one year old! Daisy was only 5lb 13oz when she was born, which is just so hard to believe now. She is so strong, confident and is zooming around our home too. I can’t believe where the last eleven months have gone really. Daisy is eleven months old already and once again another month has flown by!

Daisy is eleven months old - see what she has been up to!

Daisy is eleven months old

Weight at eleven months old

Daisy now weighs more than 22lb. She is on the 95-98th centiles for her weight AND height now! This is amazing and I’m so proud of how well she is growing. Daisy loves eating but she also still loves her prescription milk. We had our 10 month health check recently took and this went great. The health visitor was really happy with all of Daisy’s movements and her milestones that she has reached. We left feeling really proud and happy that she is growing well and developing fine too.

Health at eleven months old

Daisy has not had a great month! She fell out of the bath tub and hit her face. That was a pretty rubbish day! We had to visit A&E for a check-up and she was alright, just bruised. Her teeth had grazed her top lip too so she was bleeding which wasn’t great for me to witness. It was a bit of a scary hour and our lovely friends came over from next door when I shouted for them. I was really grateful to them and they accompanied us to the hospital which was nice of them too.

Sleep at eleven months old

Our bedtime routine was out of whack for almost two weeks of the last month. We went on holiday and Daisy stayed awake until 11:30pm at night. Oops. Anyway, we are back on track now and by sticking to our bedtime routine, albeit later than normal, we’ve been able to keep on track. Daisy is back to going to sleep at 6-6:30pm and sleeping through – thank goodness. It was awful to go back to being tired all of the time and it made me realise we definitely don’t want another baby yet!

Daisy is eleven months old – this is what she has been loving this month!

Daisy’s favourite toys this month have been:


Daisy has been loving this keyboard! She even recorded a cute video for my Facebook page using it. This has been a favourite for a few months now!

*

Daisy is still loving this walker. The front of the walker is her favourite and she loves the little plastic telephone in particular.

*

This is one of my favourite toys which means Daisy and I play with it lots. I bought this months ago for Christmas and I was so excited for Daisy to play with it. This month Daisy has been playing with the shapes that slot together and the Ninky Nonk part in particular.

*

A bead maze is a great way for a little one to learn and Daisy seems to love hers. She also loves sucking on the string like a piece of spaghetti – very comical!

*

I know all of the songs for this. I’m not kidding. Daisy has learned now how the record function works. She will hit the record button and the look around for me to say something. Each time I respond with a little sentence and it turns it into an auto tuned funny song.

*

 I think this is Daisy’s favourite toy ever! She plays with this every single night, at bath time, and it has been a firm favourite since she was really small. I’ve removed the hoopla pieces that come with it, as they are for 18m+ but I can’t wait to see her using those too.

*

The Jumperoo has come back in to popularity now for the second month. At home we use our East Coast Nursery Walker, however, at Grandma’s house we use the Jumperoo. Daisy loves it and still has great fun in it – even if she is getting a little on the tall side now!

Dislikes at eleven months old

Being told no is still her biggest dislike. She is now learning to do whatever you’re saying to slowly, more quieter or less obviously. For example when she was slapping me and I said no she took her arm away and then she began to do it lighter. This is pretty funny!

At eleven months old the newest milestones are:

Learning what no & yes mean (and saying them!)

Knowing her own name and saying it over and over, like some sort of narcissist. ‘Daisyyyyyy!’

Standing for long periods of time (ready for walking!)

Saying ‘I love you’ (albeit not quite accurately but I’m taking it!)

Also she is now saying ‘hi’

Saying ‘Izzy’ to both of our cats (Jasmine doesn’t seem to mind!)

Being strong enough to open all of the cupboards and drawers. Thank goodness for *magnet locks!

Falling out of the bath… That was pretty memorable once we got over the trip to A&E!

This is what we have been up to in the past month:

We had a great time at the Paradise Wildlife Park. You can read our review here.

Daisy is still loving her Water Babies swimming lessons in Harlow. So am I!

Daisy and I have had a bad couple of weeks with colds and minor bugs. We are getting through it now though so that is something!

We went off on holiday!

This is Daisy on holiday and on the 98th centile she is incredibly tall now!

Daisy has turned a corner now and is rarely upset for no reason. It’s lovely!

Daisy fell out of the bath and we had our first trip to A&E for an accident!

We got a whole weekend off together and it was lovely.

A whole weekend with my lovely family – lucky me! ? Have a great weekend whatever you’re doing!

Here is another photo from our weekend off. (I didn’t even work!)

My lovely little family!

This month has been filled with ups and downs. Daisy has been teething a lot and her sleep was awful for part of this month. However, we enjoyed a lovely family holiday. Daisy was able to spend time with her cousins and it was a great week together. We have been able to start getting back down the allotment now which is great fun too! The work is hard but we enjoy the fresh air and a chance to disconnect from devices for the day too is always nice.

Daisy is changing so fast now and it is hard to believe she is eleven months old. Her hair is growing in thick and fast and it is starting to go lighter too. Daisy is learning so much now.

    What a sweetie, they always say how time flies when they’re so little. Just one more month to go until birthday time! The part about her repeating her own name now that she can say it like a narcissist made me chuckle 🙂

    • katykicker February 21, 2017 / 3:25 pm

      Glad I could give you a chuckle! Hope you’re doing ok today.

      I can’t believe it is almost her Birthday already – madness!!

    Time flies doesn’t it. I can’t believe Eban is 8 this year. I want time to slow down a little bit. I feel like I’m missing things.

      I’m home with Daisy everyday, which I feel lucky for, but my husband says this sort of thing too. Hard sometimes isn’t it! But before you know it he’ll meet someone and marry and maybe have children and even more enjoyment will supposedly come your way!

    What beautiful pictures.
    Really enjoy these times, the year’s go so fast, mine are now 27 & 25, blink and it’s gone xx

      Thank you so much. I can only imagine. I remember when my first niece was born, she is now 21. Crazy!

    Nearly a year old already?! Where is the time going?! She’s growing up so quick, and she seems to be growing so well 🙂

    Aww what a little cutie, such a lovely collection of photos too! It’s funny how she responded when you said no, our toddler hides his eyes behind his hand when we tell him no and tries to carry on as he thinks we can’t see him! x

    • katykicker February 23, 2017 / 10:19 am

      hahaha that’s adorable! Kids hey! x

  6. S.L.O.A.H. February 24, 2017 / 10:14 am

    Daisy is super cute! Enjoy every moment; they change so much as this age. x

  7. Becki Parsons February 27, 2017 / 10:00 am

    Oh she’s so cute! And trips to A&E for banged heads are the worst! I’m glad she’s ok 🙂 #littleleaps

    • katykicker February 28, 2017 / 8:27 pm

      Thank you – it was worrying but thankfully she was fine!

  8. The Amphletts February 27, 2017 / 10:21 am

    Beautiful pictures and well done to her on knowing how to say a few words already, that’s the next milestone for little N and he’s just turned one!

    • katykicker February 28, 2017 / 8:33 pm

      They all learn different things at different stages don’t they – we all get there in the end anyway! I don’t know how old I was when I done anything that I do daily now!

    Daisy weighs more than Erin, she’s only 22lbs. She’s doing amazingly well. She’ll be walking in no time.

    • katykicker March 7, 2017 / 10:55 am

      Thank you, I’m so proud! Thank goodness for prescription milk and a big appetite.
