14 Months!

Weight/Length- 22 pounds at your weigh in today.  Didn't take your height, but I'll try to remember next month.  =)

Eating- You eat like a pro.  Slowly starting to introduce silverware to you.  You still tend to hold your fork in one hand and eat with the other, but you think it's pretty darn cool when mom or dad stabs food with the fork and you get to hold it and eat food from it.  =)  You did manage to scoop up some sticky rice by yourself though... you're learning!

Teeth- 14 completely in, one working it's way through!  You have everything on top (up to your first year molar), and just have the canines left on the bottom... but at least one is working it's way out right now!

Sleep- Bed by 8:00 and up for the day by 7:15 on weekdays... this weekend you slept in until 8:00 and 8:30 though.  Thank you!  =)

 Clothes- 12 and 18 month sizes, and size 5 shoes.  I need to go shopping for some new pants for you.  Everything is starting to get too short!

Personality- So independent!  You want to try everything and seem bound and determined to do pretty much everything!  You still love being outside and playing/exploring. You're starting to throw little temper tantrums when you're not getting your way, but so far Dad and I are dealing with the "go limp and sit down" behavior ok.  =)

  • You still like all the same things as month.... plus....
  • Going down the slide at the park... you can climb up the structure all by yourself, sit down without help, and slide down... and then repeat... over and over again. lol
  • You love the ocean!  Had so much fun out on the beach for Memorial Day.  You just wanted to run right out there.
  •  You're not a fan of pickles... which makes sense, 'cause neither Dad nor I are either!
  • You don't like getting your diaper changed.  For some reason that has really become a challenge recently.
  • You went to the beach for the "first" time... you've been before, but this was the first time that you actually were awake and/or could understand what was going on around you.  =)
  • You can climb up and down off of the couch/chairs on your own now (for the most part).  You are going to be quite the climber!
  • You are pointing a lot now when you want something.  This added communication is making things a bit easier!
  • You can go down the slide by yourself... and climb up the structure all on your own to get there!
  • Having molars and all of your incisors means that you can eat apple slices now!  And you love them!  =) 
  • You have started to figure out how to use a fork.  You have a hard time stabbing things, but know what to do once there's food on it!  =)
Words you understand:
  • "Mom"
  • "Dad"
  • "Kitty"
  • "Sit Down"
  • "Kisses"
  • "Hugs" 
  • "Bye Bye"
  • "Open"
  • "Close"
  • "Backwards"
  • "Hi"
  • "Go"
  • "Shoe"
  • "Outside"
  • "Ball"
  •  "No"
  • "Dance"
  • "Phone"
  • "Kick"
 Words you can say:
  • "Dad" (Sometimes "Da", sometimes "Dad", sometimes "Dada"... but I'm pretty sure that you're talking to him now, so I'm counting it).
  • "Kitty" (sounds more like "key")
  • "Bye" (you've said it a couple of times, but not regularly).
  • "Shoe" (Sounds like a high pitched "shoooo")
  • "Mama" (others have report that she says this... I've yet to hear it.  Go figure).
