Lainey 21 Months

Lainey girl is 21 months! She never wants to be still. She loves walking all over the place and getting into things. And just last week we finally weened her off formula and bottle!! WHOA. This feels like an enormous accomplishment. No more buying Nutramigen, hallelujah! She doesn't drink a ton of almond milk but now she is eating much more real food. We still aren't sure if she has outgrown her dairy allergy. We try giving her small amounts of cheese or other dairy products occasionally to see if she tolerates it and sometimes she is fussy and sometimes not. There are just so many other factors so it's hard to know if it is upsetting her or not. I am trying to get an appointment with an allergist scheduled. She likes almost all fruit (especially watermelon and banana), avocado, usually lunch meat, crackers, eggs, some veggies, and noodles. She is not crazy about most meats yet (except chicken nuggets) or bread.

She also started pointing this month. This also feels like a big milestone because although small, it is a way for her to communicate what she wants. She loves pointing at everything now.

 She loves the pool and we now know she loves the beach. She loves baths too.

She still does PT and OT and we are starting at a new place for ST. I am hoping it will be a good change for her.

I love this girl's wild and curly hair. When she wakes up it is pretty straight but so crazy. I can never even see her face. I have to get it a little wet to revive the curls.

She is a sweetheart and we love her so much! She has come so far in the past months making new progress. I can't believe she is going to be a big sister! Love you Lainey Bear.
