13 Months w/ B

Happy 13 months, lovebug!  I can't believe we're heading towards 2!  Everyday is an adventure getting to know the little person you are becoming, and it's a blast :)  The best moments of my day include you; picking you up from Mimi's, having you and brother interact and laugh in the car on the way home and bath time.  I just adore every single moment! 
Here are a few impromptu pix of her at dinnertime tonight!
 So excited about the strawberries from Mommy's garden...yummy!
 Her first corn on the cob.  It was a bit too slippery, so Daddy helped.
Age: 13 months

Stats: B is nearing 19 lbs!  She's growing like a weed.  What's hilarious is that her belly is growing more that the rest of her.  It's adorable! 

Size (diapers, onesies, etc.): B is still in 9-18 range, depending on store.  I would say she wears mostly 12 months now, size 3 diapers (still), 3.5 shoe (little peanut feet) and quite a mullet tail to boot. 

Sleeping: Amazing!  It's about time!  We're through teething, colds and wakefulness.  She falls asleep drinking her bottle and goes down on her tummy easily.  She's also putting herself back down when she wakes up, which is a small miracle!  We're in a rythm!  Thank the lord!

Eating: I hung up my bf "shoes" a couple of days after B turned one, not because I didn't want to continue, but because she would absolutely NOT latch any longer.  I was very sad, and I think it might have had something to do with being a working mom (snif) and not being with her more frequently to get into a better toddler feeding rythm...but such is life.
B loves herself some cheese, blueberries, cheerios, waffles, macaroni and cheese and anything that doesn't have veggies in it.  We're struggling with those.  When she's done, she throws every last morsel on the floor.  It's hilarious and infuriating at the same time. 

1. standing by herself
2. new words:  mama, uh-oh, ba-ba (brother), no, more
3. walking holding one hand
4. going down to bed awake
5.  sippy cup adventures
6.  exclusive whole milk (continued formula until last week for 1 feeding)
7.  finding and pointing to Mommy's nose
8.  pointing at EVERYTHING and calling attention to things she dropped by saying mama and pointing at what she wants
9. giving five

Favorite toys/activities: Her new Learning Home is by far her fav, balls, anything that isn't her toys (Brother's stuff, a water bottle, etc), walkers and activity tables, a ride in the buggy or wagon, walking holding 1 hand, shaking the baby gates, bath time
