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.

She takes off down the road, then turns around and gives us a mischievous smile and wave. Luckily we’re on a quiet cul-de-sac and always stay close behind.

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!

Miss M | Nine Months Old

This girly turned nine months old a few days ago. She had a big month! She popped out two teeth and started crawling, pulling up, waving, and eating finger foods. She loves food – we haven’t found anything she won’t eat yet. She still nurses great, but we’re going to start feeding her more high-fat foods, because she’s weighing in at 14 lb, 14 oz., just the 5th percentile. She stands 26 inches tall, about the 10th percentile. Her sister was small too, so we aren’t too surprised by her petite stature. See how she’s changed since last month. (You may also notice that it’s much colder in Kansas this month than last month.)

Miss M | Eight Months Old

My little girl is eight months old today! This was the month of “almosts.” She is almost pulling up. She is almost crawling. She twists and scoots around both on her tummy and on her bottom to reach everything in sight. She can get from her tummy to sitting position and vice versa. She finally started rolling onto her tummy at night, so she’s now sleeping through the night – almost. (She still occasionally wakes up.) She gobbles up most baby food but her tummy doesn’t like yogurt – perhaps a slight dairy intolerance like her sister had. She loves to talk and mostly says “mama” still, which I don’t mind! She also trills her tongue better than any adult I know – Wookie in training! I think she weighs about 15 pounds.

See how she’s grown. And check out her sister in the same little vest a few years ago!

Miss M | 7 Months Old

I should really post more than my daughter’s monthly photos…but life has been getting in the way! This little girl is getting stronger every day. She has gotten pretty good at standing up while holding onto something, and she loves sitting up and grabbing onto anything within reach. She’s saying “mama” and “dada” and other cute baby words. When she cries, she trills her tongue, so while we should be offering sympathy, we’re often giggling at her. She sleeps through the night about half the time and has started enjoying baby food in small quantities. At her 6 month appointment she weighed 13 lb., 7 oz., so I would guess she weighs about 14 pounds. Her daddy, sister, and I are pretty smitten by her!

See how she’s changed since last month.
