My baby is 1 1/2! I want to say that I can hardly believe it but it does seem like her first birthday was quite awhile ago. Plus, a lot has happened between September and now. The last couple of months have been fun with not too many changes. Here is what Adalyn has been up to:
Clothing/diaper size: Size 18 month clothes, size 5 shoes, size 3 diapers
Eating: Well, we finally stopped breastfeeding. March 16th was our last day so we made it 18 months! I had some emotions about stopping but I think that it is for the best. I am not sure that Adalyn was completely ready but for personal reasons, I decided that now was a good time. I will miss those sweet times for sure.
Adalyn is still an awesome eater. The only issue is that she does not really like milk. She throws a cup of milk but will drink some if I put a little banana milk in it. Not more than 4 ounces per day. So for now, we are focusing on other sources of calcium. I recently went through a big list of vegetables and made sure that she has tried all of them.
Sleep: Except for the last few nights, Adalyn has been sleeping a lot better. She goes to bed at 7-7:30 and sleeps until about 7:15 AM. She takes a 2 1/2-3 hour nap for us and longer for my mom. Sometimes for us, she really fights taking a nap and sometimes wins.
-Walking up the stairs, not crawling up
-Holding our hands when walking outside- so cute!
-"Jumping" up and down- sometimes she leaves the ground, sometimes not. A lot of the times, she just bounces her knees haha.
-Obsessed with putting chapstick on and she smacks her lips until we give it to her.
-She just started walking on her toes which I think is cool because I did that when I was little.
-New words: MAMA!! A month or so ago, Adalyn finally started saying Mama and says it all day long. I love it! She also says: "pee" for pig, "gock" for snack, "guck" for duck, Huck which is my mom's dog, "Ah" for our dog Ava, "nana" or banana for banana, "mo" for more, "bea" for a bear and some more that I am probably forgetting.
-Can point to all of her body parts when asked.
-Is a lot better at letting us know what she wants which makes life so much easier.
-Loves to dance and do Ring Around the Rosie and always knows when to fall down.
-Still obsessed with brushing her teeth. We have about 8 toothbrushes floating around the house which Adalyn carries all over and chews on.
-Loves to be read to. Favorite books include "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?", "Goodnight Gorilla" and any book with animals in it.
-Is so cuddly and loving- I love this so much!!
Love seeing Adalyn pictures? I post daily pictures on my social media channels.
