13 months (12/21/13)

I figured I'll keep doing these posts because she is learning so much and I'm better at blogging then writing in her baby book.  

She likes to stand on our scale and it says she's still 19.5 lbs but I think she is more like 20.5 lbs. I'll believe it with my own weight but not hers :)  No way is this girl standing still for us to measure her. I don't even have a guess for that one. 

She's wearing 12 and 12-18 month clothes. The 12-18 month pants are long on miss shorty but we just roll them. Same with her 18 month shirts. She wears a size 4 shoe and size 3 diaper.  

I believe it when they say babies are either mobile or talkative.  She's been walking for 4+ months but her vocabulary is slow coming. Other then the few words I listed on her 12 month update, she hasn't said much more. She learned to say "ho ho ho" for what Santa says but that's about her only new "word." She tries to say more and please but they said nothing like the actual word. She is incredibly smart though even if she doesn't have a huge vocabulary. I know she'll eventually talk and it's not concerning at all since she does say about 5 words. She gets extremely giggly when you mention milk or cookies. I think she secretly wants to be Santa. Even though she hated the real deal. Looking at him was fine but sitting on his lap? No way. She was squirming and trying to get off his lap ASAP. No tears though!

Still going to bed around 7:30-8pm and waking between 7-8am. She is still sleeping through the night but maybe 1 a week she'll cry for her binky. And that's something we need to wean her from but I'm scared to do it. We are finally getting sleep after 11 months!! She still only has 4 teeth so I don't think  it's doing too much damage yet. It looks like about 4 teeth are coming in though so the binky is going soon. We at least brush them twice a day. She is mostly down to 1 nap now around 12:30 for 2 hours. She'll take a morning nap if we lay her down but then the afternoon nap is hit or miss or pretty short. 

She is not a fan of cold milk so she has warm milk in a sippy  when she wakes up and before bed (but before we brush her teeth).   She doesn't drink much milk if we serve it at meals. She likes her food. She eats 3 meals and 2 snacks and has water with all that.

She's been a little more shy around strangers. She doesn't cry or anything but she won't willingly go to them. If I hand her to someone she is normally fine though. She'll wave to anybody and everybody though. She loves giving open mouth kisses and sometimes makes me give her 10+ kisses before she's had enough. No complaints here. 

Collins, you are the sweetest, best baby EVER!!   I have no idea what we did before you came along but I know I wouldn't change it for the world.  Love you like crazy.
