Elley, you are 14 months old. Or at least you were, one month ago. I'm just crazy late getting this update posted.
You had a weight check at 13 and a half months and you were up to 16 lbs 10 oz or the 0.33%ile. Which yes, is up in both weight and percentiles.
You're pretty solidly in 9 months clothes, although we're slowly starting to cycle some 12 months items in. You're still wearing size 3 diapers and have your bumgeniuses snapped the same way.
You have a bunch of new teeth. Your bottom to molars are in. One of your bottom canines is in, and your top molars are starting to come in.
Then there are your words, which you seem to be adding to everyday. You can say hi, byb-bye, uh-oh, outside (which is your favorite place to be and you'll say all the time hoping someone will take you there), dada, mine (which you do say, but you'll also use mommy to mean mine), hot (which is how you refer to most food), shoe, ball, baby (which is what everything tiny is called, so if we see a puppy outside, that's a baby). You can clap, give high fives, give hugs and kisses... You'll even follow simple directions, things like asking you to bring something to someone or pick something up.
Your most recent obsession is shoes. If you find your own around the house you'll bring them to us to put them on your feet. Or if instead you find my shoes or your daddy's you'll bring them to us and insist that we put them on immediately. What's really fun is when you bring me two left shoes and want me to wear both of them at the same time.
Your other favorite toys are anything that lights up and plays music, especially My Pal Violet. You love your cozy coupe. By that I mean you love pushing it around or being pushed in it, but haven't quite figured out how to get it to move while you're sitting in it.
You love being read books too. We have your favorites in the living room, and you'll bring them to me over and over to read. As for the ones you go back to, it's Llama Llama Red Pajama (the longest book you'll sit through), Ten Apples on Top, and all your Usborne books. Although funny enough, while you'll read books all the time in the living room, you're not a fan of reading them before bed. I think it's because at that point you know it's bedtime and you'd rather be in your crib.
Speaking of bedtime, we had been down to one final nursing session before bed, at least until last week. But like with a bedtime story, you could care less about nursing and just wanted to be in your crib, so since you were telling me you were ready to finish nursing, I knew I needed to be ready as well.
It's so crazy to think that you really aren't a baby anymore. But as much as I may miss you being a tiny little baby, I'm a little in awe with the person you're starting to become.
