A few days ago Charlotte broke out into a terrible rash, which we found out was an allergic reaction to the amoxicillin she's been taking for her strep. It spread from her face down to her toes. Thankfully we were able to take her off the medication right away since she had cleared the strep completely. But I'll be honest...she looked awful. Worst rash I've ever seen on a baby and it happens to be my own. She isn't bothered my it but every time I look at her I can't help but wonder how on earth it doesn't hurt...
One good thing though- in the days before she got it we took lots of pictures of her. So at least I have some lovelier pictures to post... :]
at 11 months:
*she has a new nickname. we call her cha-cha cause she loves to dance to anything with a beat :]
*she can WALK! It's just plain crazy if you ask me.
*she still loves her binkies and I have no intention whatsoever of taking them away. not yet...
*says "mama" "dada" "hi" "yeah" and "ohhhhh" & signs for "eat"
*is intrigued by books more than ever.
*speaks out to her brother when she doesn't like what he's doing.
*loves grapes, cheese, corn, peas, yogurt, bananas & lots more!
*has the most random sleep pattern ever, but overall sleeps pretty good.
*follows her brother around everywhere. Everywhere. She thinks he is the bee's-knees.
*raises her eyebrows at strangers and anyone eating food in front of her.
*desperately needs clothes that fit her because she is growing so amazingly fast!
I know I post a lot about Charlotte. No, I haven't forgotten that I have a son : ] For every month he grew before he turned one year I did the same thing for him. It's nice to have a record of that first year because it goes by in a blink and its such a precious time. His b-day is coming up in April, so we're going to be super busy with birthday stuff around here pretty soon! It's slightly overwhelming...plus there's all the other holidays. goodness! I wish I could just hit the "pause" button for a while.
Happy 11 months Charly Mae!
