Adalyn: 11 Months

A baby no longer, this month Adalyn has become a little girl.  She is on the move and becoming more independent by the day.  This month, Adi has mastered crawling and pushing up to stand.  She is able to walk while holding on to furniture and is curious about everything.  Her first steps could happen any day!  Her vocabulary continues to increase and she is able to tell us what she wants, especially if it starts with the letter B, bird, ball, bunny, book, bottle, etc.  She is still a fantastic eater and prefers to have foods that she can feed herself with.  She loves coconuts, quesadillas, noodles, rice, pork, fish and kiwis.  As she grows, she is starting to move from two naps to one nap per day.  We are still waiting for her next two teeth to pop through, but I'm sure they will be here soon.  This month Adi spent two weeks with her great grandmother and we traveled to Thailand and Singapore.  We had a great time showing her around SE Asia.  As we move toward greater mobility and independence, Adi is starting to shift her play needs.  We have spent a lot more time this month playing with other friends and Adalyn and Coco have become friends. We also celebrated Songkran, Thai New Year, and Easter this month.  It's been super fun and a lot of work to watch her transition to a little girl.  Here are a few of our favorite pictures from this month.
