11 Months!

Scarlett is 11 months old!  She is 18 lbs, 1oz and almost 27 inches.  She still has three teeth on the bottom, but one on the top has finally made its way through!  She has no interest in rolling over, but she does try to sit up and bounces on her chubby legs all day long.  She has just begun trying to get objects into her mouth besides her hand and pacifier, and grab her legs and feet.  She holds her own bottle with just a little help.  She's eating a little better despite nausea from chemo; she seems to like vegetables better than fruit and tolerates a little yogurt.  She is not a fan of any solid, dry or crunchy foods, which we will be working on in OT.  She loves to splash in the bath, and ride in the stroller or grocery cart.  You still can't see in pictures, but she has downy white hair all over her head, bushy blond eyebrows and thick brown lashes.

It's been 9 months since she was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  Her doctors are blown away at her progress and good spirits at every turn.  We can't get enough of her.

And now the countdown begins to the big birthday bash...

Wow, her stats are pretty close with our own daughter's at about that age. Very impressive. As always, she is one adorable baby.

What a sweet little girl! And speaking of her birthday... are you going to do a birthday registry? I know I'm not the only one who would like to send her a birthday present, and it is nice to know what toys/clothes she would like.
