16 Month Update!

Latest Developments: 
  • You love books and reading time. Your favorite books at the moment are Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do you See, and Bizzy Bear: Off We Go
  • You still point at EVERYTHING and want to know the name of the object you are pointing to. {Exhausting} It goes like this…”DA…DA… DA” and the DA keeps getting louder until we tell you the name of said object. 
  • You have learned to flush the toilet and open the refrigerator. Wonderful. 
  • Crawling up stairs. Even though we don’t have stairs in our house most of our family does. If we turn our backs for a minute you are making your way to the second floor. I guess we will have to work on teaching you how to come back down. 
  • You are tall enough now to reach too much! We keep putting things higher and higher or remove them completely. You found the dvd and blu-ray and are obsessed with watching them open and close. I feel like the microwave buttons are next. Good thing we hardly ever use that thing because I won’t feel sad if it disappears too. 
  • You still mimic everyone’s bodily functions by saying, “Ahhhh-Boo!” {sneezing, coughing, burping} Um, yea. 
  • You shake your head and say, “Nah”. 
  • You try to brush your teeth now. You have two toothbrushes one is pink and one is yellow. You prefer the pink one and you “brush” your teeth for more than the recommended two minutes! WOOHOO!
  • You want to climb on the couch now for reading time.  We have to put you on the couch, but reading time doesn’t last long.  Soon, your bouncing and dropping yourself into the cushions, chuckling all the way. 
  • You know where your eyes, ears, nose, mouth, teeth, knee, wrist, arm, hair, and toes are, or, as we affectionately call them, piggies. 
  • Words: Door, Milk, Moo, Whoa!, Mama, Dada, Dog, Meow, Woof, Hoot, Nah.  Still taking in your sleep sometimes. I’m guessing you will be pretty chatty once the words come together. 
  • When someone asks you a question, you reply, Hmm? 
Clothes: You’re wearing 18-24 months in both tops and bottoms.  We have switched to cloth diapers and you don’t seem to mind either way. I have been buying you size 2T for your summer wardrobe. Where is my tiny baby? 
Sleep: Bedtime is anywhere between 6:30 p.m. and 7 and (most of the time) you sleep until 7-7:30 a.m. WOOT!
Nap(s): I’m still not sure if you want one nap a day or two. Some days you want a morning nap, some days its a mid-day nap, and other days its an afternoon nap. For the past couple of days you have had only one nap after lunch for about an hour. 
Eating: You drink your whole milk from a bottle and will only drink water from the sippy cup. We need to work on this…STILL. You eat everything and anything and lots of it! Today you had scrambled eggs with cheese for breakfast, spaghetti and meatballs for lunch and pizza and veggies for dinner. 
Teeth: Two bottom middle are and two top middle are IN! Eye teeth are starting to show and the past couple of days have been really hard on you as they break through.  
Happy 16 month birthday sweet girl!

  1. This is such a cute idea!

  2. Love the pic of her sleeping – adorable! She is really doing a lot more from a month ago.

  3. Yay 16 months!! This is a really good idea. I should do it in the journal I have for B. I have been so bad at keeping up with it. I wrote letters to him in it the entire time I was pregnant and have really slacked. I really love this though, cute idea for sure.

  4. Yay! They grow up so fast don't they??
