13 Months…

I’m a little late in posting her 13 month update, but better late than never, right?  She’s growing SO fast and turning into such a big girl.  I just can’t get over all of the new stuff she is doing. 

She is walking more and more each day and is finally getting the hang of it.  Her crawl is normal now and she doesn’t just push herself with one leg out, haha.  She had her one year evaluation with Hand In Hand yesterday and they are very impressed with her development.  Especially considering only 6 months ago she wasn’t even rolling over or crawling.  She will continue working with her Physical Therapist once a month.  Next they will work on walking on uneven surfaces, going up stairs and playing on the playground!

We also discussed my concern for her speech.  Right now her words consist of “mama”, “dada”, “nana” and “kitty”.  This is very typical for a one year old, but we all think she should be imitating our words more than she is.  Currently, she hasn’t moved up to a toddler room at daycare yet b/c there simply isn’t enough room.  Therefore, all she hears is babies crying all day and has nothing really to “imitate” but noises.  It would definitely help if she could move up and have more interaction with the kids her age and a little older.  She will start working with a Speech Therapist within the next month.  I know I’ve said it before, but I’m so thankful that she has the opportunity to work with these therapists and I wish every child had that same opportunity. 

Other Happenings…

She weighs 26 lbs and I’m not sure how tall she is, but compared to other 1 year olds, she’s pretty tall!  Every time music is playing she starts swinging those hips and moving those arms.  It’s so cute!  When you say “bye bye” she waves.  She gives the best hugs and open mouth kisses ever.  She eats anything and everything you give her.  She knows what her “drink” is and when I say the word she starts drinking from her sippy.  Mickey Mouse is still her favorite.  She holds her MM doll by his yellow feet whenever she has him (not sure why).  If I say “where’s Mickey?” she looks at the TV.  Slamming cabinet doors is apparently another one of her favorites b/c she does it all the time! haha! We still don’t have much of a routine for night night time, but right now I”m happy with her falling asleep in either Brad’s arms or mine.  I’m going to enjoy it while I can!  Here is a pic of her after we got home yesterday from work and “school”…

My baby is growing too fast!!
