12 Months

I'm late on this post. Maybe because I don't want it to be true!!
My baby is turning into a toddler.
Her 12 month stats: 20lbs. 30inches. She is around the 60th percentile for weight and 75th for height. At her two week check up she was in the 5th! The girl has done a lot of growing this year :)

She is changing so much everyday. She talks A LOT.  She loves to try and repeat what I say.

Words she says:
Dirty (diapers lol!)
Ba ba (bottle)
Booberries or Boobies (Blueberries haha)
Cheese (for both the camera & the food)
Hi Pretty

"AT AT" when she's doing something she knows she's not supposed to
"YO YO YO YO" - an African lullaby in her book hahaha

Words she attempts that I understand:
Assen (Addison)

She hasn't tried to walk yet. She is starting to stand for longer periods. I can't wait for her to walk, but then again I can. So whenever she's ready is fine with me! :)

She is the biggest fake cougher, it's kind of hilarious.

Bedtime is around 8pm and recently she's been doing well about not eating until 3:30am, I hand her a bottle and go back to bed, and then she wakes around 8am. A huge improvement.

She still takes three bottles per day and then the one overnight. Soon, no idea 'when', we will be taking the bottles away. It's going to be tough. She loves her ba ba's. I am not ready!! Cold turkey or wean?!

Her favorite toys are her babies and her new anywhere chair from Pottery Barn. It's adorable how she sits and lays in it.

This past month she celebrated her birthday, visited the hospital yet again, and took a vacation with mommy & daddy to the beach.

Her birthday was perfect, I'll make a post for that soon! The hospital visit was scary. She had a fever in the middle of the night and while giving her a cool bath we noticed one eye looked lazy/droopy. Not a good sight to see your baby. I was so scared something was wrong. Thankfully, after 8 hours of hospital and doctor wait, they said she has an ear infection that caused her eye to swell! Who would have guessed that?!

And the beach was awesome. It was so nice to get away. We ate out, a lot. We spent a lot of time by the pool, had our photos professionally taken, and we walked the boardwalk down to 'Sunfest'. I wasn't ready to come home!

Your little one is growing so fast! Pictures are such a blessing in capturing a little piece of babyhood.

She is soooo beautiful, makes me teary eyed reading this and looking at the pictures cause my baby boy is almost 9 months and I'm like really wanting him not to grow up! But it's amazing to watch ya know!!! Love your blog :)

I cannot believe she's 1. Where does time go????
Our Addi-pie used to fake cough at this age all the time! Funniest thing ever. Now she fake chokes....less funny.
We used a transitional bottle with Peanut until (hiding in the corner embarrassed) last week. It's a sippy that has the mouth part shaped like a bottle. (this should be it...we bought ours at CVS: P loved her bottle and since she was having trouble eating enough to keep up the weight, we didn't stress taking it away and instead used a transitional one for the morning bottle and slowly switched the rest to a regular sippy cup.

As far as bottles - we are currently going cold turkey - lord help me. It's scary when they don't have milk, but gosh am I ready to have those bottles be gone!

I'll keep you posted on how it goes and how long it takes.
