12-Months Old


Age: 12 Months

Stats: 20lbs & 28 inches (These are guesstimates…we go to the doctor on the 7th!)

Clothes: A few 9 month outfits but mostly 12 months. She has filled out so much in the past two months.

Favorite Foods: Cheese, Crackers, granola bars, mac-n-cheese (can you tell we feed her such healthy foods), & yogurt (this kid LOVES yogurt!).

Favorite Words: Momma and Dadda.

Favorite Toys: Books are still by far her favorite toys. But she also is a sucker for an iPhone, remote control, or the cats fur. Ya know, the important stuff.

Sleep: She is doing so much  better with sleeping in her big girl bed. 8PM-7:30AM (she ends up in our bed usually around 2AM…not to shabby…we’ll get there)  

Favorite Activities: She loves being outside and going for walks, reading books, getting into the cats water bowl, & she also has figured out how to open cabinets.

Least Favorite Activities:  I’m pretty sure this is going to stay the same forever. She absolutely HATES having to lay down to change her diaper, clothes, be put in her car seat, or anything that requires her to sit still. She is becoming more and more adamant with her protesting. It’s getting a little ridiculous.
Signature Moves: Waving “Hi” & “Bye-Bye”, “roll em up” (Ask her, she knows), & fake laughing to make us laugh (she is a comedian already! Her Great Pop Johnny would be so proud)
Proudest Moment: I took her to work with me the other day for a little while and she just could and would not stop giving me hugs and kisses. Times like those make me forget all the bad/sleepless nights and remember why I wanted to become a mom so badly.
Other Milestones: She has cut two of her back molars, the other two are on their way in…this kid has 10… yes you read that right…TEN teeth. What, the what?! She is becoming more independent and so much more interactive with Charles and I. We also completely cut out bottles this past month…only sippy cups for this little toddler! 😦 I actually cried.

I can’t wait to post pictures from her birthday party on Saturday! Where did my baby go? For all of you brand new moms, moms-to-be or even vet mom, these are the best times of your life, enjoy every little moment because before you know it they’ll be a year old and you’ll look back and try and figure out when it happened. Don’t wish them onto the next milestone, I know it’s hard, I’ve been there but looking back I wish I would have taken more time to appreciate her learning and growth.
