Well, this is it folks! In only one month we'll be celebrating little girl's birthday. I can't believe it. I'm so proud of her I could just pop. Here's what she's been up to this month:
She is wearing size 18 month clothes and size 4 diapers. A few 12 month things still fit.
After a week of no morning nap, Molly is back to 2 naps and is sleeping better than she ever has. Her morning nap is 45-60 minutes and the afternoon nap is usually 90 minutes. 12 hours at night. It only took me 11 months to figure her out!
Molly is just about done with baby food. She loves to eat whatever we're eating, and its a big mess. She eats 3 meals a day and 1-2 snacks. I've been a lot more lax with her on allergenic foods that she's not supposed to have yet because of the lack of food options that we have here. She eats eggs, peanut butter, cheese, etc. She is nursing 4-5 times a day.
She is learning to drink out of a sippy cup and she really likes it (brother has one, after all!). She can even drink out of the kind with no handles.
She was very sick for about a week (thus the bad sleeping) before we figured out that she had a mango fly maggot imbedded in her ankle. We thought it was a spider bite. Once it was popped out she got better. Yeah, that was pretty much traumatizing for me. TIA!
Molly has really improved her balance. She can stand holding onto something lightly with one hand. I really think she could stand on her own but she'll figure that out soon.
She can walk forward holding a push toy.
She road on a boat for the first time, loved it.
She still says Mama several times a day. She has repeated Dadda and bump twice each.
She is learning baby signs, the only sign she repeats so far is more. She has started an annoying habit of shrieking when she wants more food so we're hoping this will help!
She loves to ride on the swings and side of our new playground (with help of course) and has even enjoyed the trampoline. She's just pretty much up for anything.
We love this girl so so so much. From her soft little curls to her chubby little toes she is just a joy. We are so thankful that God has blessed us with such a sweet natured girl (who is finally napping well too!).
