Baby girl is 17 months old today! That is so close to 18 months which seems so old and such a milestone. But goodness she is so much fun. And so so cute. I was dying over the cuteness of these pigtails. Oh how I love love love having a little girl.
Skills: Her new words this month include: backpack (bapa), outside (side), Pa, Gigi, Nana, night night (ni ni), bat, and snack. There may be more but that is all I can think of now. She will also imitate some animal sounds.
Likes: There are of course the usual suspects - baby dolls, her blanket, and shoes. She pretty much carries her baby and blanket around the house all day. It is pretty cute. She even had her baby doll give me kisses tonight on each cheek. She loves giving kisses. She also loves Daddy. When she sees something of his during the day she will point and say Dada. In the evening when it is getting close to the time he comes home from work she will see cars go by outside and say Dada. As soon as she hears the garage door she says Dada Dada Dada. She also loves for us to "get her". In the evening after bath she is super wild and silly and just wants to be chased and tickle-attacked. As soon as we stop she starts furiously signing "more". She loves the "more" sign. She also loves to go through my make up bag. That is how pigtails are possible :)
Struggles: Vegetables! We had sort of taken a break from the veggie wars since last time I posted. We had quiche a couple of nights (which she LOVES) which has onions, mushrooms, and spinach. Then we had something else that had a bit of veggies in it that she ate. She still won't touch a plain veggie. Also sometimes food in general is a struggle. Like tonight, she would not touch the chicken. It was chicken soft taco meat made in the crockpot. Super soft and flavorful. With melted cheese on top. She ate it last night and liked it. Swatted it away tonight. Only wanted blackberries. We gave her one blackberry but then told her she had to eat some chicken first before more blackberries. Ensue crying. Wouldn't eat at all. So we tried again an hour later after bath and after much coaxing she finally tried the chicken. She liked it and ate it all. We didn't even attempt veggies because that was already difficult enough.
Schedule: She is down to 1 nap. She started this a few weeks ago. She still gets very tired in the morning but will just not go down for a morning nap. However, if we go anywhere in the morning, she will fall asleep in the car for a little cat nap. She usually takes her 1 nap around 1pm. Sometimes she only sleeps an hour, sometimes 2. She goes to bed at 7:30 and wakes up around 6:30. Tonight she didn't want us to read her a story or sing a song, she just kept saying ni ni and pointing to her crib. Ok, you got it! Night night! She eats her 3 meals a day and an afternoon snack. She drinks milk 3 times a day too (separately from meals though).
She still has 12 teeth but 2 more top ones have started poking through and I think the bottom 2 might be close behind. She wears size 4 diaper mostly, and between a 4 and a 5 shoe. Her clothes are 12-18 or 18-24.
We love our Cambry Paige!
