Miss M | Fifteen (and Fourteen) Months

Miss M turned fifteen months old a few days ago – man, time sure does fly! I’m posting her fourteen month picture too, since I missed that one.

She’s a little person with a ton of personality, toddling around and making us laugh constantly. She gets into everything, screams when she doesn’t get what she wants, dances her booty off, scribbles on the walls, and has no fear of climbing onto big sister’s scooter and taking off down the driveway.

She’s catching up on the growth chart, weighing in at 20.5 pounds & 30 inches, putting her in the 40-50th percentile.

She’s a talker too, with probably 20-30 words in her vocabulary, although a lot of them sound similar and Mommy and Daddy are probably the only ones who can decipher most of them.

See how she’s changed here.

Family Photos | A Bundle of Perfection

Remember this beautiful maternity session from a few months ago? Well, I got to meet the one-month old for family photos last weekend. Check out the photos – could he be any more perfect? There’s so much love in these photos, I had an incredibly hard time narrowing them down!

Miss M | A Few Snapshots

It’s funny how you take so many fewer photos of your second kid than your first. (Please tell me I’m not the only one?) I’m also much slower to upload, sort, and edit. In this instance, I finally pulled photos off my camera from a month ago. Here are a few keepers of Miss M … now 14 months old. (I also forgot to post her monthly photo – so I’ll post 14 & 15 months in a couple of weeks!)

She may be a pro at walking by now, but she still loves to hold our hand. (If she didn’t, my heart would break.)

Miss M | Thirteen Months

Miss M is a full on toddler now – toddling from here to there – usually with her hands straight up in the air, either for balance or because she’s used to holding onto our fingers. She loves to eat, she’s a great sleeper, and she does pretty darn well traveling. She’s starting to be more opinionated too – don’t you dare grab her toys, spoon, or paci without a fight!

See how she’s grown over the last month, or compare her to her sister at this age.

Miss M Turns One

My baby is ONE! My emotions aren’t sure whether to be excited or sad about my littlest turning one today. I think it’s a mix of both. She’s had a busy week with 4th of July festivities, and she’s got a busy weekend ahead with her big birthday party. She’s now drinking cow’s milk from a sippy cup, climbing up everything (like up and over the couch), standing up from the floor, and taking a few steps! She’s starting to say more words with meaning now – it’s fun to have two-way communication with her!

Check out how she’s changed since last month. Since this is her last “first year” photo, I’ll be moving away from the rocking chair pics to photos standing with Daddy, like we did with big sis.

Miss M | 11 Months Old

Looking back at last month, I think Miss M has grown a lot! I believe she weighs about 17 pounds now (still petite), but she loves to eat! She can eat a whole Chick-Fil-A kids meal by herself, and she regularly consumes more at the dinner table than her 4-year-old sister. She’s cruising along furniture and getting into more stuff every day. (Her favorites are colored pencils, gel pens, the cat bowl, and the stairs.) She has started saying a few words, like “light,” “agua,” and “uh-oh” – my personal favorite. Best of all – her sister is great at getting her to laugh!
