13 Months Old *August 13, 2012*

She turned 13 months old over a week ago, but better late than never! 

I can't believe that we're already a month into Alli's second year. She is still as sweet and gentle as ever, and she's definitely in no hurry to grow up! It's been so much fun watching her grow some courage and start to hold her own against big sister for a change. She is starting to fight for what she wants instead of letting Lila rule the house, and I'm definitely okay with that!  I've loved watching the girls grow closer in their love/hate relationship that most sisters have, and I hope that it continues to grow more towards the love side. 

Here's what you're up to:

*You weigh about 18 pounds and are about 28 inches tall. (I had to guess because our scale broke, and I haven't replaced it yet).

*You have SIX teeth, and I don't see anymore coming in as of now.

*You love to wave hi and bye bye. You wave with your palm facing you like you're waving at yourself. You love to hold phones up to your ear and say "hi". You really love to say "hi" to anything and anyone.
*You still love to clap when we say "yay".

*You are not very excited to walk on your own, but you love to walk while holding onto mine and Lila's hand. Lila loves to walk with you, and you do a great job walking with her.
*You love to climb in and out of chairs. You also love to climb on all kinds of riding toys, Lila loves to push you off of them though.

*You are still the first thing (besides Mickey or Yo Gabba Gabba) that Lila wants to see in the morning. She loves to run to your room, and you guys will play with each other for a long while before you get out of your crib.
*Your favorite toys are remotes, iPhones, riding toys, anything that can be easily chewed on

*Still taking two naps a day most days when we're at home (10:30am and 2pm)

*Your table food eating has gotten a little better this past month. You will eat whole bananas, crackers, bread, blueberries, squeeze yogurt, and a grilled cheese sandwich. You still love Cheerios and puffs (you can even say the word "puff" now).
*You're drinking organic whole milk...unfortunately still in a bottle. You did really well with the sippy cup for a few days, but then reverted and all you will take is the bottle. We will try cold turkey again when we are done traveling.

*You're also still obsessed with your paci. I don't foresee a near end in sight with this battle yet.
*You still wear size 3 diapers, 12 month clothing, 9 month sleepers. You are such a tiny little thing!

*You had a great time at your summer school, and I'm excited that you will have the same teachers this fall that you had at your school last year!

*You love dogs, especially Chevy!
You have grown up so much even this past month! It's so exciting to watch you grow and learn and interact with people around you.

  1. I'm not sure if I've said this yet or not, but HOLY MOLY... she looks like your HUSBAND! :) And absolutely, so precious. And love the white dress you have her in. :)

    My 6 month old is in 9 month sleepers - haha! She's so long! I have a feeling she will grow out of them soon, too!
