12 Months!!

Sunday, October 11, 2015

Our Dearest Stella,
I can't even believe that today is your first birthday; I feel like you only be about 4 months old. You have definitely become "the boss" of the house and know how to put everyone in their place. You try so hard to keep up with Wyatt and everyone else, and you definitely keep me on my toes. You have brought so much love, happiness, growling, and dancing to our family! We love you so much "Cupcake Monster"!

What you did this month:
  • You weigh about 17.5 pounds and are roughly 29 inches tall.
  • You are wearing 12M clothes. You wear 12M in pajamas.
  • You are wearing size 3 diapers.
  • You nurse 2 times a day--before your afternoon nap and before bed. 
  • Your favorite foods are White Cheddar Cheeto Puffs (you get giddy when you see the bag), Nature Valley PB bars, waffles with syrup, yogurt, smoothies, chicken, pizza, and fruit/veggie pouches.
  • You take a morning nap around 9 for about an hour. Then you take an afternoon nap around 1:30 for about 2 hours.
  • You go to bed around 7:30 at night and you've (dare I say it out loud) been sleeping until about 7:30 in the morning. Yep, sleeping through the night for almost a week now.
  • You officially found you "lovies". You have to have a silky blanket and your "baby Sweet Pea" when you go to bed.
  • You have 4 teeth, 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom.
  • You're crawling all over the place and pulling up on everything. You can free-stand as well but then sit back down.  
  • You are so close to walking. This week you started pushing your walker toy a couple of steps.
  • You still prefer to be rocked to sleep. Although, I try to put you down while you're still slightly awake.
  • You have been a lot happier in the afternoons, after your nap, since you started sleeping through the night.
  • We've been spending so much time outside the last couple of weeks; the weather has been amazing!
  • You are a huge fan of bath time!
  • You've also become quite a jabber box. We're pretty sure you're saying kitty, which comes out "ki-ca" when you see the cats and you're also saying "mamama" and "dada". You usually throw out other words like, "wa-wa"(Wyatt), "ju" (juice) and "bu" (book) sometimes.
  • You love to wave, chase kitty cats, clap, click your tongue, dance, and sing songs!
