3 Year Old Update - Delainey Marie

Height: 40 inches - 97%
Weight: 33 pounds - 75%
Head Circumference:  Apparently they no longer measure this!
Movement: We are working on some coordination skills these days like jumping jacks and hopscotch. You are a climbing monkey, you run very fast, and can do forward rolls and hang on the bars like a champ. You are also a pretty good swimmer, I think over the next few weeks with some practice I will feel 100% confident letting you swim by yourself. You are 100% a right-handed girl!
Eating Habits/New Foods: Your meals consists of: Breakfast: pancakes, sausage,  yogurt with granola, cereal, fruit,  Lunch: cheese, smoothies, applesauce, fruit or veggies, salami, chicken nuggets, hotdogs, noodles w/ butter, PB & J. Dinner: whatever we are eating for dinner. You have a great palate and eat most things. You don't love spicy foods though. You particularly love steak, noodles, mac n cheese, corn, broccoli, caesar salad, avocado, Snacks: you love pretzels, graham crackers, goldfish, raisins, fruit snacks, snack mix, crackers, and gummies. Your favorite drink is juice...any kind, but we try to limit that and give you whole milk or water instead. You don't drink much milk, but I think we make up for it with all the cheese and yogurt.
Sleeping Patterns: As of recently we have given up naps and bedtime is fantastic again! You wake up between 7:30 & 8 am and we start our bedtime routine around 7ish. We take a bath, go potty, brush teeth, put on PJs, read 1-2 stories, say prayers, and then go to sleep. It is usually around 8 by the time we go to sleep. You sleep through the night for the most part, unless you have a bad dream which happens maybe once a week. You ask us to lay with you and then will fall back asleep after about 15-30 minutes. Since there are no naps, you do a quiet time in your room where you read books and play with your toys so mom can have some free time.
Sounds/Words: You can repeat any word, so this category should now be more about memory and what you are learning. You can pick out all the colors of the rainbow and identify your normal shapes. You are learning lots of scientific things such as how the body works and outer space. (it's very useful having 2 grandmas who are science teachers). You can count to 20, sing the words to plenty of songs, and learning new big words from your Fancy Nancy books as well as others. The one thing you say that is funny, but we aren't changing in "could be's" instead of the word because...it's so cute! You also are amazing at rhyming when we give you a word and lately you have been picking out words that start with the same letter.
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You have a new best friend AKA your baby sister, Blakely Ann, born on March 28th, 2015.
