Weight: 23-24 pounds
Health: Pretty good, just some super-dry skin. I’m going to have to watch her skin…it’s so much more sensitive than mine!
Sleep: Sleeps through the night, occasionally needing her pacifier. She takes a morning nap and an afternoon nap, for about 3 hours total.
Social: Loves to be around people, loves petting the cats, playing with her daycare friends, and hamming it up for grandparents, aunts, and uncles. Silly girl.
Diet: 3 bottles of whole milk a day, all before naps or bed, of about 7 ounces each. She also has breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Favorites are mandarin oranges, beans, grapes, peanut butter crackers, and pasta. She also loves stealing mommy’s cookies…
Clothes: Wearing all 18 month clothes. I may need to get her some 24 month leggings soon – her cloth diapers make some of her 18 month ones a little short!
Baby Gear Love: Loves to play with her princess horses she got for Christmas, her stroller, and of course empty boxes and food containers…she’s been known to carry around empty gallon milk jugs.
Crying: Lord help you if she doesn’t get her way. Crying fit. I’m hoping she grows out of it soon…but not pushing my luck.
Likes: Turning the lights on and off, her lovey, her nunnie, the cats, running around the kitchen, playing on the bed.
Nicknames: Abs, Bug, Buggie Bug, Baby Bug
Milestones: SIX Teeth (up from 3 last month), Trying to walk up and down the stairs holding our hands, can get off the couch and (almost) on it by herself, starting to use a fork!
Buggie Bug –
You just keep changing on me. Your first birthday was only a month ago, and you’re already racing toward your next one. You are so many things – a daredevil, our lovebug, a brat (sometimes), headstrong, determined, and SO independent. We already have our hands full with you and I know you’re going to give us even more to handle as you grow. Try to go easy on the temper tantrums, ok? Sometimes its hard for mommy to hold in her laughter when you’re crying over something silly.
Love you so much,
