17 Months

Happy 17 Months!

She's waiving and saying "HI!" to you


Fun facts for month seventeen:
Weight: more than 20lbs!
Height: 28 inches
Eating: 3 meals a day and 1-2 snacks
Sleeping: 2 Naps during the day
Diaper: Size 4 diapers
Clothing: 6-12 month and some 12-18 month clothes (even the 12 months are starting to get a little tight)

What's new for month seventeen:
  • She says "please" (or "peas" really), "papa", "book", "wa" (water), "dink" (drink), "up", "tankoo" (thank you), "boot", "schock" (sock), "picter" (picture), "pets-el" (pretzel) and will try to say just about any word! (I'm also fairly sure I'm forgetting some words here - her vocabulary has just exploded!)
  • She goes "moooo" for the cow, "rough" for the dog, and has a sound for elephants and zebras too.
  • She has discovered her belly button and thinks it's hilarious! (She also likes my belly button)
  • She thinks that rabbits are dogs and says "rough" every time she sees them in Goodnight Moon
  • She is saying please any time she wants something and it is really helping to diffuse some times where she used to have tantrums!  
  • She loves her family and really enjoyed playing with her cousin for a week. RB would just follow her around everywhere.
  • Reading, reading, reading!
  • She loooooooves to play with any size ball
  • She likes to be tickled, but only if you say "tickle, tickle, tickle" while you do it
  • She loves to point at things and attempt their names
  • She sometimes calls me "ommy" instead of "mommy"
  • She is in everything. Everything. 
  • She gives herself a hand spankin if she does something she knows that she shouldn't do. 
  • She loves to bring you a book to read or a toy to play with
  • She is getting much better at handling dogs, especially if they are not too excited.
  • She is getting to be a cuddle bug - she has to cuddle after she wakes up from every nap or she gets too upset to play.
  • She is doing great with a spoon and fork. She is still working on scooping and spearing things herself, but she can eat about half a thing of yogurt on her own before getting frustrated. 
  • She loves to stomp one foot to music, it's hilarious!
  • She loves other children
  • She is a fairly serious baby with other people
  • She can have pigtails now!

16 Months (belated)

Happy 16 Months!



So, this last month I did a fast from media of all kinds which unfortunately included blogging. It was a hard month to say the least, but I learned a lot. The good news is....I still took pictures on her 16 month birthday and just waited to actually post all her information. 

Fun facts for month sixteen:
Weight: more than 20lbs!

Diaper: Size 4 diapers
Clothing: 6-12 month and some 12-18 month clothes. 

What's new for month sixteen:
  • She is speaking so much! She tries to say almost every word so it is hard to decide what are new and what are not new. 
  • She is saying please sometimes and is not enjoying our attempts to help her be more polite. 
  • She loves to point at things and attempt their names
  • She sometimes calls me "ommy" instead of "mommy"
  • She is in everything. Everything. 
  • She says "rough" when a dog barks or when she sees a dog.
  • She gives herself a hand spankin if she does something she knows that she shouldn't do. 
  • She loves to bring you a book to read or a toy to play with
  • She is getting much better at handling dogs, especially if they are not too excited.
  • She is getting to be a cuddle bug - she has to cuddle after she wakes up from every nap or she gets too upset to play.
  • She is doing great with a spoon and fork. She is still working on scooping and spearing things herself, but she can eat about half a thing of yogurt on her own before getting frustrated. 
  • She loves to stomp one foot to music, it's hilarious!
  • She loves other children
  • She is a fairly serious baby
  • She is a bit clingy right now because we want on a 9 day mission trip and she was not altogether happy with me when I got back, but it's kind of nice to have all the cuddles since we both missed each other. 
  • She is starting to recognize her family and give them some love
