As for her monthly photo, we decided to change it up and instead of placing her in my old antique high chair, to put her in my old ice cream chair. My mom saved my old little ice cream table and chairs for me, and they are perfect for toddlers. We positioned it in front of her crib but not sure if I like the angle. It is so low to the ground and I may move it next month in front of her adult sized Eiffel Tower in her room. Or I may switch it back to the high chair. She is also wearing a cute smocked jumper my mom (Coco) bought for her.
-Still a very picky, independent eater. She loves her avocado, strawberries, black beans, peanut butter and pasta. She turns her nose up to a lot of foods and I now have to puree veggies and add them to the pasta sauce so she will eat them. I made some white northern beans the other night and she loved those so I will keep trying new things. For now she is also eating smoothies I make with flax seed, peanut butter, yogurt and veggies and fruit.
-She is still not a fan of whole milk and will take a few sips- so I hide it in her smoothies sometimes
-She is still nursing before her 2 naps and before bed time and still wakes up at least once in the middle of then night to nurse too, I am not a fan of that one :)
-She goes to bed between 7-7:30pm and will wake up 12 hours later.
-Taking 2 naps a day still for 1.5-2 hours each
-Really enjoying her Art Class! She loves the texture of the paints and using the Easel. I can't wait to go to Ikea to get her one to use at home!
-She loves balls and blocks. She is doing really well with her Little People blocks/legos and places them very carefully on the lego pad.
-She loves to push things and use her walker
-Enjoys music toys and plays my old guitar and my piano
-She still says mama and dada, uh-oh and light, signs for 'all done', 'dog', 'hot' and 'more' and 'up'
-Her new word this month is 'up'
-Blows kisses and says, 'mwah'
-She signs for bird/duck and we are still working on all the others like book, help, airplane, cold, etc.
-She has taken 3 steps so far!!! Just a little waddle but she is on her way to walking very soon. Much earlier than I was apparently, as I did not learn until I was 16 months old!
-Wearing size 12 months, or 9-12 months, shoe size 3.5
-Loves to dance
-She finally got her first molar and it was a big one- she was cranky and had a fever with it, poor thing. I feel the next one coming in on the other side- a big swollen gum that will probably emerge in 2 weeks
-Loves to point at things
-Finished her swim lessons at the Y and loves water!
I have probably missed a few things, she is doing something new every day! So fascinating and fun :)
