Happy Birthday precious girl! I can't believe you are 1! You still seem so little and I am kinda glad because I just love the baby stage. You are so sweet and cute. I smoother you with kisses and hugs all day. I am so thankful for this past year with you and I am excited to see what this next year brings.
Your hair has lightened up so much since you were born.
Size: A couple weeks ago you were 18 lbs. 6 oz. (32%), 29 in. tall (59%), and head 17 in. (17%). You wear 12 month clothes and size 3 diaper. I sometimes put shoes on you but I can't remember what size you wear. You usually try to pull your shoes off and eat them.
Likes: You like to grab everything. You want so badly to go places but you are still working on it. You can get across the room by rolling and can go from sitting to all fours but then you go to your tummy. You like when Cambry plays with you. You like being out and looking around at everything. You almost never cry when we are out of the house.
Dislikes: You do not like to be left alone in the evening. You are usually ok playing on the floor with toys while I am out of the room for short periods of time during the day. But for some reason when evening rolls around you are like I AM TIRED OF PLAYING WITH TOYS, YOU BETTER HOLD ME AND DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT LEAVING THE ROOM. You will cry dramatically until I pick you up and then you are fine. You also get frustrated and will cry when you are so close to grabbing something but can't quite get there. You are not the biggest fan of bows. You usually pull them out in the car. I am still pressing on.
Working on: You are getting pretty good at going from sitting to all fours. But you will only stay there a few seconds before going on your tummy. You haven't figured out the crawling thing yet. You are getting better at pushing up on your arms from your tummy, so we are working on the legs coming up. You are very close to being able to get in sitting position on your own (from laying). We are also working on you saying a word. You said "mama" for the first time this month. You haven't done it since but I did get the video proof!
Eating: You take about 3 1/2 bottles a day and baby food several times. You have made a little bit of progress with eating small bits of texture. You have tolerated small bites of bananas or puffs, so that is a start! You can suck down a pouch in no time at all.
Sleeping: I am SO SO SO thankful that you are such a good sleeper. You love your crib. And just this month you started sleeping on your tummy. You move around a lot at night so you don't always stay on your tummy, but you seem to like it. It is just crazy that you HATED your tummy the first 10 months of life and now you are actually choosing to be on your tummy. Bedtime is around 7:30 and you wake up around 7am or even sometimes 8am recently. You take 2 naps a day. When you wake up in the morning you have the craziest hair. I love it.
Happy Birthday Lainey! We love you so much!
