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 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 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.
*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 also still obsessed with your paci. I don't foresee a near end in sight with this battle yet.
*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.
