This past weekend, Fern Winter turned 11 months old and we had our monthly photo shoot. This month has a busy one and has been filled with lots of fun winter festivities! (We’re at a teething standstill though — poor girl is wishing for more teeth so she can eat more yummy food!) She is pulling herself up on EVERYTHING and standing unassisted for short periods of time. (See Month 1 , Month 2, Month 3 , Month 4, Month 5, Month 6, Month 7, Month 8, Month 9 and Month 10) photo shoots to compare!) She’s also seeming to grasp more cause and effect,which is fun to watch.
This month was a rough one in our country with multiple shootings (one of them was in my own backyard) and it was a reminder to hold my baby a little closer. But, some happier things this month included: Fern sharing her fashion sense over at my favorite kid’s lifestyle blog Heart & Habit (check out her Mini Street Style feature!), experiencing snow for the first time, and having so many fun first Christmas experiences (like meeting Santa!).
I am documenting Fern’s first year of life by doing a round up of my favorite photos from that month and taking her photo in front of our chalkboard and making a list of her likes and dislikes.
