You are really becoming your own person now. You have such a distinct
and vibrant personality. You are stubborn as can be, but you love to
smile. Your belly laughs don't come often, but when they do, it makes
your dad and I both laugh hysterically. You do chuckle all the time.
drink water now from a sippy cup, but when you saw Ty with his sippy
sports bottle, you seemed to realize that it was much cooler. You
stopped drinking from the cup and I had to buy you the bottle. Then,
you saw me with a small bottled water, and refused your sports bottle!
Yesterday you drank half a bottle of my water. Silly girl.
just learned how to put yourself to sleep. We had been sleeping with
you in our bed, but you just got way too mobile. We were afraid you'd
crawl off the bed in the middle of the night! We were expecting a
really hard time with the switch, and we were so worried about it.
But, you are such a smart big girl, and now you love your bedtime
routine. I give you a bath, and we sing Rubber Duckie. Then we put
on your PJs and go to the glider in your room. I read you 3 books
- one that's different every night, and then Goodnight Moon and One
Sleepy Baby. Then, we say goodnight to everything in your room and
put away your toys. I put you in your crib, put on your Sooth to Sleep
Pooh Bear and say goodnight. You fall asleep hugging your little pillow
like a little angel. When I check on you you always have your butt
up in the air, fast asleep.
pull yourself up on EVERYTHING! The coffee table, the first stair,
boxes, your stool, my legs, Daddy's legs, the toilet, the trash can,
the scale . . .
are a champion crawler and can get everywhere super fast.
can walk when we hold your hands, but you look drunk. And, you look
down at your feet the whole time, as if you can't believe what you
love walking the park in the morning with Lisa and Ty. You and Ty
are so excited to see each other every morning, and he has just begun
kissing you. He started off kissing your head, but now he holds your
chin, tilts his head and kisses you on the mouth. He also loves to
give you his hat, his water, and his toys. He's only 15 months old,
and is already making his moves!
just started eat Earth's Best Teething Biscuits. You love them because
you can do it all by yourself.
eat yogurt now and love it.
no teeth, but your hair seems a little bit thicker and darker. It
gets kind of curly when it's wet.
love singing along with music on the radio, and are entranced when
music is on TV. Last night we watched a Dean Martin special on PBS
(your dad's favorite singer) and you wouldn't take your eyes off the
screen. You were transfixed.
love to imitate sounds, especially singing and coughing.
make a funny panting dog sound when you are about to eat.
