12 Months!!

We are a little late on posting a 12 month update due to all of the birthday festivities and visiting family, but here is what Emmy Cate is up to lately:

  • Weighs in at 21.7 pounds (50-75%) and 31” long (85-87%), head circumference 45.1 cm (50-75%).  Guess that is why everything is so short on her!
  • Generally wears 12-18 month clothes, size 3-4 shoes (she has little feet!), size 4 diapers
  • Can walk about 3-4 steps
  • Can say the word “Baby” and “Uh huh”.  EVERYTHING is “Uh huh”!!
  • Still drinking about 20 oz. of milk a day, mostly now out of sippy cups in addition to her 3 square meals
  • Favorite foods are cheese, cheese, and more cheese!!  So naturally, grilled cheese are a BIG hit.  Also loves spaghetti, waffles, bananas, strawberries, chicken pot pies, & goldfish.  She is generally not too picky of an eater (at least for a 1 year old) but veggies are still a pretty hard sell!
  • About to pop through a couple more teeth … the Dr. felt them just under the gums at the last appointment and she has been showing signs of teething recently (cough, congestion, irritability)
  • Her new game is peek-a-boo, which she plays by covering her own eyes and the peeks out from behind them as you yell “Peek-a-boo!!”
  • She points and carries on “conversations” about everything, but especially loves airplanes, fans, and balloons!
  • Still practically the same schedule since she was 4 months old (!!!!) – sleeps at night from 8-7, 1.5 hour nap around 10:30-11, and 1 hour nap around 4-5. 

Her latest game is pretending to bite your finger.  She thinks this is soo fun AND she tells you so!  Make sure your sound is turned up enough so you can hear me ask her a question.
