weight & height: 19.8(ish) pounds and 26.75 inches long. We didn't have any doctor's appointments this month so these are just close guesses! eating & sleeping: Along with rice cereal, I've now officially moved into the realm of baby food, and so far I love it! I've only tried sweet potatoes so far but think they're delicious, and ever since learning how to eat from a spoon solid foods have been going well! Sleeping is still going pretty well; I'll still go for about an 11-12 hour stretch at night, and mommy & daddy are currently working to transition me into my flat bed from my rock n' play. exciting firsts/milestones: This last month I had a really exciting first with my first word which was MAMA!!!! Mommy was SO excited to hear that I'd made that my first word of choice, and even though Daddy is excited about it too, he's been consistently trying to get me to say "dada" ever since. 😉 things I love: Right now I love pretty much everything, but a few things that make the top of my list are talking to anyone who will listen, playing with toys, reading books with Mommy & Daddy, and chewing on anything that I can fit into my mouth. I've also gotten quite good at throwing things while sitting in my high chair, and if given toys to hold will throw them off almost immediately. things I don't enjoy so much: The thing that I enjoy the least right now is having to wait longer than a couple of minutes for anything that I'm wanting. Whether it's food, a nap, or just some attention, I've learned how to make quite the scene when I feel like I've been waiting long enough for something. mom & dad's biggest parenting lesson so far: Since I got all better from my cold in December and croup in the New Year, Mommy has noticed that she is feeling like she's finally getting a better routine down that allows her to spend lots of fun time with me, but also allows for her to do things for herself sometimes like reading a book before bed, exercising, or washing her hair & shaving her legs in the same shower. 😉 As hard as it can be for her (and a lot of moms from what I hear) to admit, sometimes taking a little bit of "me time" is exactly what is needed so that a mommy can have the energy needed to do everything she needs to for her kids.
I can't even believe while writing this that our little girl is already more than halfway through her first year of life. I've been flipping through her newborn pictures lately and wondering how on earth our baby has grown up so quickly! As always, thanks so much to everyone for reading and following along on her little journey, your love and support mean the world to us!
