I needed some cheering up . . .
"At the age of 11 months standing and cruising around the room by holding onto furniture keeps your little one very busy.
(Crusing around the room yes, but I draw the line at holding on to furniture.)
Baby may even take a few steps on her own. Some babies like standing so much they refuse to sit down! This will wear off eventually.
(About the time feet start hurting . . .)
Some of the major milestones for the 11-month-old include the following:
- Standing by herself for a moment or two, and maybe walking if her hand is held.
(Yes, please hold my hand, I still get lost trying to find my table. You should walk me there anyway since that's probably where you put down your eye glasses.)
- Waving and turning around without falling.
(We'll see about that.)
- Using one word to mean a whole thought, and using the word "no," even when meaning yes.
("No, really, I'm done dancing. See my shoes are off and everything! Okay, just one more.")
- Copying everything she sees, wanting approval, and testing you to see what she can get away with.
(I'm over that, I promise. Well. mostly. Half the time.)
