Blakely's 16 Month Update
Height: about 31 inches
Weight: about 24 lbs... I feel like you are suddenly so heavy though!
Head Circumference: about 19 inches
Vision: We are good in this department. Nothing to report
Movement: You are a wild woman these days. It is so cute to watch you "run". You can't run yet, but when you want to play tag it looks like you are speed walking. It is so funny to watch you go. You are navigating steps better and don't sit down to do it as long as you have a hand or wall to balance yourself on when going down.
Eating Habits/New Foods: You still drink 2 -3 milks a day. You have discovered juice and are obsessed with it. You love to do your juice sign! You are liking pancakes, sausage, pineapple, watermelon, noodles, pizza, chicken, tomatoes, raisins, pirates booty, pretzels. You also tried shrimp for the 1st time and didn't mind it. You are not a big fan of cheeseburgers though.
Sleeping Patterns: You are sleeping through the night. You will wake up and moan and move around throughout the night, but you end up going back to bed. Still 1 nap a day and you sleep for about 2 hours. You wake up at 7:30ish and go to bed between 7:30 and 8.
Sounds/Words: You are talking so much these days. You can now say what, juice, more, no, go, sissy, hold you, happy, baby, shoe...literally everyday you learn a new word. Not so much sentences that we can understand, but you sure do tell us things. You are a LOUD feisty woman. You yell at your sister, fight back when she takes a toy, run from me when I tell you no. You definitely are going to give mom a run for her money.
-You have 2 top molars that magically appeared. I always realize it after the fact and say well that explains why you were so fussy. LOL
-You are a crazy woman in the pool. You dive off the steps and think you can swim, but you cannot. You are kicking, and hold your breath for about 5 seconds, but someone has to help push you to the steps.
-You are obsessed with your My Gym class. I sing the opening song and you clap to it and then yell wahoo at the end of it!
-You watched your 1st fireworks and sat in amazement watching them.
-You are starting to do forward rolls on your own.
Places you went/Adventures: You did not have many adventures this month. Mom was on a cruise for 4 days so you hung out with Dad and Gram. And then Mom had her FET so we laid low this month. You got reacquainted with a schedule and your naps. Of course we had some trips to Chick-fil-a (you love the play area now) and ran some errands, but nothing to wild. You swim at least 5 days a week so that is fun!
Clothes: You are in 18-24 month clothes in all brands now. You are still in a size 5 diaper. Size 5 shoe
Sister updates: You guys are so great together 95% of the time. You have finally hit the age where you fight back and get what you want when Big sis takes advantage of you. She loves to help Mom by holding your hand when we walk, or picking you up to put you on the couch. She loves you so much!
