Size: We just moved into size 3 diapers. She's definitely getting longer, but has a tiny little waist. Some of her pants are becoming capris :) She's now fitting into most of her 6-12m clothes. 6-9m dresses, 6m shorts sleeve onesies, 9m Carters pjs.
Hair: Growing longer and thicker and suddenly coming in quite blonde.
Teeth: 4! She added the top two middle teeth this month and the next two top teeth will pop through any day.
Sleeping: We're still struggling in the sleep area. She's still waking at least once per night. She did have another ear infection + teething so I think that is what is interrupting her sleep.
She goes down for the night between 7-8pm and wakes for the day between 7-8am. She needs 2 naps per day but doesn't always fit in two naps.
Eating: This girl loves to eat! We're up to 3 meals per day and she's mostly refusing to eat purees so she mostly eats table food. She loves everything we give her and she seems especially fond of raspberries.
After a follow-up appointment with her GI, she's back on Alimentum. The doctor was concerned about her spit up, wet burps, congestion and ear infections all contributing to something, likely food allergies. She had an endoscopy with tissue samples and a full blood panel. We're still waiting on the results from everything.
Movement: She's everywhere! No more army crawling -- full on 4 point crawl, cruising along furniture, walking behind her push toy. She will pull up on anything and everything. Climbs on anything she can. She waves :)
Milestones: Walking behind toys, first real words, waving, endoscopy / anesthesia :(.
Favorite toys/activities: She loves her brother, loves his toys, and she LOVES bathtime. Even if she's fussy, if you tell her she's going to take a bath, she'll calm down and enjoy her bath. Her fussiness commences as soon as she gets out of the water.
Dislikes: Being hungry or tired. Being in a room by herself.
Words: Lots of talking this month! Her first word is officially "hi". She'll also say bye, mama and we think she's said dada.
I am a 30-something first time Mom and have been married since November 2003 to my wonderful husband. Our son, Tyson was born in May 2009. I'm currently working part-time as an attorney and loving every minute of our sweet little boy.
One of my 2010 New Year's Resolutions is to be a better photographer, so I'm taking at least one photo each day, mostly of Tyson.
