Ridley is 11 months old. In less than a month we will be throwing her 1st birthday party! I cannot believe how quickly this year has passed and it makes me want to cling onto all the small moments a little tighter.
Recently, she has been waking up in the middle of the night and has a really hard time going back to sleep. We aren't really sure what the deal is, but she literally decides that it is party time and won't go to sleep. We can rock her, give her tylenol, etc. and she is NOT going back down. We can't really figure out what the issues is, possibly just trying to achieve the developmental milestone of walking or cutting new teeth. I've always heard that when they are trying to master a new milestone, it can mess up sleep patterns. Hopefully, this leaves as quickly as it started :)

Despite her wild nights, she is still a sweet girl all other times. I'm excited to see how her personality develops as she ages. She is super mellow laid back right now with little bouts of attitude so we shall see how this transpires as she ages.
We are loving life right now and looking forward to all of our new firsts and relishing in the memories of all of our "lasts". On that note, I've forgotten to mention that at 10 months Ridley completely weaned herself from nursing. She started cutting two of her upper teeth and the pain was pretty rough on her and she had a hard time even taking a bottle. She refused to even attempt to nurse during this time and with everything going on pumping just wasn't happening. This was REALLY hard for momma, especially knowing that this was probably my last wee one; however, I also felt that it was better that she let go instead of me having to push her away. We are now in full blown bottle and sippy cups and we are starting to give her little tastes of Horizon Organic Whole Milk.
Lot's of stuff going on as usual. She got to get in the pool for one of our friend's pool parties and she LOVED the water and the splashes. Which is no surprise, since bath time is a favorite.
That's all I have for now! I"ll leave you with a sneak peak of her 1st Birthday outfit her Nana bought her..I can't WAIT to see her in it
