Here is our little monthly meme.
Favorite Foods: Skyline (beans/rice, spaghetti, cheese, crackers), waffles, green beans (whole), black beans, bananas, oranges, stars, mommy’s milk
Least Favorite Foods: tofu at home (at a restaurant is fine, though)
Newest Foods: hummus, taco bell pintos and cheese — she loved both
Sleep: Still sleeping through the night most nights. She is typically asleep by 7:30 and up by 6:30 because I have to go to work. She has been sick, so sleep has been rough on a few nights. The trade-off is longer naps during the day. She has taken several 2+ hour naps — but never at daycare. Blackout shades are the way to go.
Size: We’ll have an official measurement next week, but when we took her in for the ear infection last week they measured her with her clothes on, on the antique scale and she weighed 18 pounds, 4 ounces. This scale has always weighed on the heavy side, so I’m going to guess she is around 18 pounds.
Teeth: She has her 2 bottom teeth. No signs of more.
Physical accomplishments: She walks everywhere, just crawling occasionally. Her balance is much better than it was last month. She has started using a spoon a little bit and did pretty well. She would pick up a bite of food, put it manually in the spoon and then navigate the spoon to her mouth. Obviously more work than just popping it in her mouth, but she watches us use utensils and wants to also.
Words: Her words are kitty cat, dog, baby, more, hi and bye. She will also sometimes repeat back a word that we say, but she doesn’t have any intention. I think she is just practicing.
Signs: Her signs are more, drink, milk, baby, bath, water and all done. She uses them pretty consistently and much more accurately than last month. She must have learned "baby" at daycare because we didn’t teach her that one.
