15 months

Must use big camera next month. 

Here we are again, another month older. This month has been one of the harder ones due to lack of communication and her getting upset or whining out of frustration. She's defintely trying hard to talk and I don't think it will be long before she's able to. "Ugh oh" is her newest word.  She got teeth 5 and 6 this month with a few others about to pop through so that might be why she's been upset too.

She is a smart cookie though, she knows where her eyes, nose, ears, mouth, tongue, teeth, belly button, hands, fingers, toes and feet are and quite a few animal sounds. If you ask her where her belly button is, she'll lift up her shirt and show you and then try and lift your shirt up to see yours. You've been warned.  She usually follows directions and is great at cleaning up her toys. 

Signing more cause I was bribing her with blueberries 

We knew she wasn't going to be a tall girl but she's pretty petite in general. 20lbs 5oz puts her at 13% and 29.5in puts her at 23%.  Mostly wearing 12 and 12-18 month clothes and a size 3 diaper. I just bought a box of size 4 but their pretty big and saggy. Size 4 shoe but we'll be buying 5's for Spring. 

Still an awesome eater and could literally eat all day long. She's lucky and just burns off all she eats.  Pb&j sandwiches are a new favorite.  But she doesn't turn much down. 

Sleeping 11-12 hours at night (7:30-7:30)and about a 1.5-2 hour nap in the afternoon. She'd probably still take a morning nap if we let her but I prefer 1 long nap instead of 2 cat naps.

We announced big news this month, she's going to be a big sister! They'll be 21 months apart and I'm pretty sure they'll be best friends. She loves babies so I'm hoping she won't mind one moving in with us. She doesn't like me holding other kids or babies so we need to work on that. She isn't sure of strangers this month either. We've never been through this with her so it makes me sad when she won't go to other people she doesn't know very well.  I'm praying it's short lived cause I liked my social little girl. He started going back to church this month and she didn't cry the first time but has these past 2 times. Breaks my heart but they push her around in a stroller and she she eventually warms up to them. 

She loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, climbing on things, sweets, slides, helping us cook and watching cooking  shows and dancing. She won't drink her sippy of milk when she wakes up or before bed unless she can watch Mickey. She only watches about 10 min. before she loses interest but she gives a huge smile when it first comes on.

We love you munchkin, so so much.

  1. She is SO little!! Declan is weighing in at like 26 pounds... maybe I shouldn't advertise that... child services may get me for having an obese child :)
