Another 1/4 of a year is behind us....2 is coming on way too fast! There have been quite a few new developments, particularly in the past week.....so here we go:
*We don't have our well-baby visit until the 15th, so we had to improvise and do our own weights and measures: A is currently at 23lbs and looking to be just under 32".
*18 month outfits (particularly one piece-ers) are just barely fitting.
*All 4 molars are now most of the way through...raising our teeth grand total to 12.
*Walking is our constant preferred mode of transportation...in addition to walking there is running...which sometimes ends up with a complete full body face plant.
*A now signs: Milk, more, all done, read, book
*A now says: Mama, Mommy, Dado, Daddy, Dada, dog, puppy, happy, please (for the first time yesterday), bottle, Bailey (Auntie Megger's dog), Sa and Thy (our dogs, Sage and Thyme), wat (for water), 'mana (banana) and a couple of other things I can't remember.
*A now makes the sounds for: Dog, cat, chicken, lion, lamb/sheep, monkey, cow, and ghost
*A also points to her hair, ears, eyes, nose, mouth and (sometimes) tummy
*She blows lots of kisses and can click her tongue
*We're still not sleeping through the night and are usually up at least once, if not twice, but they're quick drinks and then back down....we typically go from 7:30pm until 7:45am (but with 2 wakeups).
*A can now climb up on the couch, ottoman, and arm chair without help (Lord help us!)
*A continue to try and climb up the dog crate to get on the kitchen counter (hasn't happened yet).
*A responded to her first phone call: I was on the phone with Matt and put her on and he said, "hello" and A said "Hi" (usually she just sits there in awe).
*We're down to only 1 nap a day...sometimes it's an hour, sometimes it's 3, but on average they're around 2 hours: I miss 2-2 hour naps.
*A still refuses to leave hair things in.
*A few times we found A sucking the same 2 fingers that I sucked when I was a kid...only (no idea how she came up with that or why (she still has a pacifier, but only in her crib or in the car).
I'm sure there is something else I should be mentioning, but I can't seem to remember. This kid is just growing up way too fast.
Went this morning for Ave's 15 month Well Baby check up. Everything looks good, but she still does have a slight heart murmur, which the doctor isn't too concerned about. I also had started to notice a soft bulge above her belly button (while standing) the past few months. My MIL looked at it (she's an RN) and said that it might be a slight umbilical hernia....it is. The doctor says we'll keep an eye on it but it should close up on its own by the time A is 4 year....if not, we'll deal with it then.
