We are literally like two weeks away from Penelope turning one so it seems logical that I be late on her update for 11 months, right?
Of course. If you aren't used to it by now, I don't know what to tell you.
But eleven months!
she got super sick, but since then she has gotten clingy. Which isn't the only thing that's changed since being sick. She also doesn't want to be rocked for nap or bed time, and she doesn't need to be swaddled. It's like all at once she decided she's too big.
Surely someone forgot to tell her she needs to ease into these transitions for her mother's sake.
I mentioned she can sign, and I'm trying to teach her just a few like "milk" and "more". She really likes being able to tell me something, so that's fun. She doesn't seem to care about learning any more so we'll see. She also babbles quite a bit. No real words but sometimes she will say "hi" and wave to you. She likes to clap and wave, not always on command though.
Anyways. She turns one soon. I'm working on her first year scrapbook, her first birthday party plans, and trying to enjoy every minute of her all on her own. Soon she'll be competing with a baby and I worry she'll be unhappy about this. I'm more worried about her getting a sibling than I was when Olivia would become a big sister. It's a weird mix of emotions.
