Adelyn’s 12 Months Old!

How in the world do we already have a 12 month old? We can hardly believe that we have been blessed with you for 1 whole year now! It has been an amazing, fun filled, and challenging year!
You are such a sweet little girl! You wave hi & bye to everyone & anyone, whether we’re at the store, out to eat, church, or at daycare. You also love to blow kisses! It just makes our hearts happy to see you being so sweet! We are really starting to see your personality. If you do something & we laugh you will do it over & over again and just laugh!IMG_2419.1
You are a 100% walker. You rarely crawl anymore. You took your first steps on Mother’s Day and have just continued to progress ever since. You are almost running these days, when you get really excited! I just love watching your little legs trot along, its so adorable! And you are really starting to want to walk all the time! If we are holding you or you are in the cart, 90% of the time you will squirm your way to the ground so you can walk.IMG_2447
Although you are a sweet girl, we think you are starting to show some sass! If you don’t get what you want or can’t reach something you sit down and sequel! You definitely have a strong opinion of what you want!
When you wake up in the mornings or from a nap you hand us your blanket first, make sure you have your paci {if you don’t already}, and then lift your arms up for us to pick you up and then you just snuggle into our chest. We love those moments! Since you are walking all around these days, our snuggle times are pretty minimal.IMG_2456
You have improved by leaps & bounds with your changing table over the past few weeks. You rarely cry when we put you on it. Both your Daddy & I are so thankful for this change! The car seat is also getting better as well. The only time you cry when we put you in it is when you are over tired. Even though you are at the one year mark we are going to keep you rear facing as long we can.
You jabber all the time. There are a few words you say, hi, bye, more {maa}, uh oh, da da, and mama. You point to things all the time and say “ba” or “da” like you’re asking a question. You don’t say paci, but we have figured out that when we say “where’s your paci?” or if you’re looking for it you say “ya ya ya”! It is so fun to watch you learn a discover all these new things!IMG_2434
You are on 100% table food and whole milk now. The week before you turned 11 months old we quit nursing and Mommy just continued to pump until 1 week before you were 1 year old. We slowly started mixing breastmilk and whole milk as we got closer to the one year mark. You never missed a beat and drink the whole milk so well. You had your last bottle on June 15th. Now you are solely drinking from a sippy cup. You have a sippy cup of whole milk when you wake up, one with lunch, and one before you go to bed. You also will have water or juice {mixed w/water} with meals and snacks. You are a pretty good eater. I can tell when you aren’t in a growth spurt though, you don’t eat near as much! Your favorite foods are grapes, strawberries, bananas, waffles, chicken, and peas. IMG_2432
We got a pool in early May and you LOVE it. I’m so happy that you love the water. We were pretty sure that you would love the pool since you love bath time so much. I see lots of pool time and hopefully some lake time as well this summer.
You love Abby. Despite Mommy & Daddy saying “no, no” you love to share your meals & snacks with her and just grin the whole time. You love it when Abby gets excited and starts darting all throughout the house, you just sit there and giggle at her.IMG_2453
You have 12 teeth now, the four on the top, four on the bottom and four molars. You went about 6 weeks without biting and then bit 3 kids in one day at daycare just before your first birthday. We were really hoping you were past that phase. It hasn’t happen since {knock on wood} so we’re hoping it was a random occurrence and you are past the biting stage.
We are so incredibly thankful that you are such a good sleeper. You consistently sleep 11+ hours/night. You go down each night between 6:30pm & 7pm {with about a 15-30 second squeal} and sleep till about 5:30-6am-ish. The other day we didn’t get you out of your crib until 6:30am and it felt wonderful ”sleeping in” that long! At daycare you only take 1 nap/day for about 1 1/2 hours, but at home on the weekends you will take 2 naps that are 1 1/2 – 2 hours. IMG_2429
You are mainly wearing size 6-12mo or 12mo clothes. They are quickly getting too short for you though and if it’s a shorts & shirt set you end up showing off you cute little tummy! We have put you in a few 12-18mo or 18mo clothes, but they are still quite baggy. You are still in size 3 diapers and have been since you were 7 months old!IMG_2404.1
Adelyn you are growing up so fast! You are such a fun, happy little girl. We are so blessed to have you in our lives and we love you more than you’ll ever know. Can’t wait to see what your second year will bring!
