11 Months Old Today!

So today Joey is 11 months old :)  Here is what we have been doing this month.....sorry for the not keeping up with the posts!

Johnny and I had talked about this and we agreed that we were ready to hop back on the old bikes, so we got Joey a trailer to sit in behind the bikes.  We also got her a helmet.  At first she didn't like the trailer or the helmet as you can see below!

After a bottle and helmet removal, she liked the trailer just fine!  We now have the freedom to travel the neighborhood just like we used to do before Joey got here!  It's really been fun to bike to the park, friend's houses, and just around!  We love to get out of the house, and the trailer also has a trusty compartment for storing items such as but not limited to: diaper bag, baseball gloves and ball, water bottles, blanket for the park, and snacks!

We also went to play Top Golf in Dallas.  This picture is of our friend Cory and his son Easton who was born 2 Aprils ago and is about to be 3!  Joey went to Top Golf with us, but she just sat in her stroller being a good girl!  If you don't know what it is, you should google Top Golf!  It is so much fun!

Joey is also using a big girl sippie cup these days too!  We went to Target to get some and I held up some green and blue cups in one hand and pink and purple ones in the other hand.  She picked the pink and purple ones...I put them behind my back and switched hands, and she still picked the pink and purple ones...she's a girlie girl I guess!

This is a picture at a cool park in Carrollton.  We went there for my friend Laurie's daughter's 2 year old birthday!  The park was way cool, it had this springy type floor, no wood chips or gravel...greatness!  Here is Joey in the swing, she loves this thing!

That's it for now, but stay tuned, I am going to post some pics from my Grandmother's house soon...maybe even tonight!  I will leave you with this video of Joey doing what I call "sleep eating".  This happens almost every night at the Stout house!

Cute!! That picture of her peering over the green park equipment is ADORABLE!! And the bike trailer looks like fun.

Good job getting started on the cup early! My suggestion is to put her formula in it for one feeding a day. That way she won't revolt against milk when you switch over in a month. The Nuby cup is a good one to transition with because the nipple is soft like a bottle. Of course at her size, your ped. might do what ours did and keep her on the expensive formula longer than a year! Boo!
