11 Months of Hallie Anne

We have had a great long weekend with plenty of celebrations both birthday and wedding! I will make sure to update on that tomorrow, but first what you've all been waiting for! An update on Miss Hallie Anne!

I still am so baffled at how fast 11 months have flown. I am trying to soak up each moment of this last month as her baby days slip away and she becomes a toddler. She is growing so so fast and becoming more independent by the minute!

About Hallie at 11 months
Age- 11 months- I am so not ready for her to turn 1 year old! 
  • Weight-  About 15 lbs (its only a weight check this month) 
  • Length- 27 1/2 inches.. (also a guess...but she is looking extra tall these days!)
  • Size- Size 2 diapers. They are really huge on her, but I got sick of buying 2 sizes, plus the size 1's were becoming hard to find at our local store.
 Onesies and T's- 3 month or 3-6 Months. Granted she still has a few 0-3 month ones that fit as well.  
Pants- the waist on the 3-6 month are too big, but the length on the 3's are too small...LIMBO!
  PJs 6 month
  • Eyes- Still blue! Some days they look a little gray or even greenish, but outside they look really blue! 
  • Hair- Getting longer and lighter each month! Right now it's light brown. I have been using a clip to pin back some because it's long enough to get in her eyes but I am not ready to cut it! 
  • Sleeping- Usually 11 hours. About 2 naps a day. 
  • Eating- What is she NOT eating?! She still takes a bottle 3 times a day, but is way more interested in food...ANYTHING! Berries, pasta and meat are her faves! 
  • Milestones- Just advancing vocally and still trying to walk! Oh and CLIMBING ON EVERYTHING! 
  • Words she can say: SO many! We have almost 20 down! New ones: Down, Cat, and Car.
  •  Memorable outings/holidays- Playgroup and weddings really sums up our month! 
  • Favorite toys/activities- Hugging and kissing her babies and stuffed animals! Peek-a-boo! She actually learned to do it herself! She will hide her face in the couch until we say "where's Hallie?" then she pops her head up! It's the cutest thing you've ever seen! Clapping and waving at everything! Prayer Bunny which we call Luna bunny. Dollies and stuffies!  Also: Puppets, especially Kermit! Things that aren't toys...hairbrush, bottles, tupperware! She loves books! A girl after my own heart! We read before bed every night!  Also loves the rhymes we do at story time! Particularly (Tick Tock,Horse named Ron and Patty Cake!) Loves to play with Stella.  DANCING! She loves to shake it! Especially with Daddy! She also really enjoys listening to music. WALKING with help! Seriously it makes her sooo happy! Loves dressing up! Beads and shoes! She is SUCH a social butterfly and loves to play with her friends! Oh and did I mention CLIMBING! 
  • Nicknames- I call her sweet pea, peanut, peanut butter, sweet girl or Hal.
  • Funny moments- Most moments are funny! She has started doing this "stink face" and she literally TRIES to make us laugh! 
  • Looking forward to- Each and every moment! They go by so quickly! 


  1. She is getting so big! Such a cutie! And, I don't know if I've said it, but loving the new look!

    1. Thanks so much! Yes, too big! I hate it!

  2. Aww!! Pretty girl! She's getting so big! Only a month until
    She's 1! Tell her to stop growing, please ;-)

  3. She is such a little peanut! Years with little ones just fly by. I feel like yesterday Brylee turned one and now she's almost TWO!!

  4. They grow up so fast. She was so tiny when I started following along. And now almost a year. zoom.

  5. Oh my goodness the BIG TWO is really closing in. I can't believe how big she is getting!

  6. She is way too cute! I would LOVE to see her stink face!

  7. Oh my goodness she is so cute! In the summer Olivia can get away with shorts a size or two smaller - because length doesn't matter that much. But in the winter Olivia has to wear those super skinny Gap pants with the adjustable waist. "super skinny" is the style. They are on the tightest setting, but they'll stay on and be long enough. At 11 months I think Hallie had more words than Olivia does now! Maybe a slight exaggeration, but she's so advanced!


Don't be shy, I'd love to hear what you think! Don't forget to follow us!
