Twelve Months

Thursday, August 8, 2013



Age: 12 months (I refuse to write one year)
Birthday: August 7, 2012
Weight: 18.25 pounds, I don't really think her weight has changed since around 9 months when she started crawling
Length: 27  inches
Sleep: Bedtime is 8:30-10. If she only has one nap during the day, she'll go out early, but if she takes two naps, it's usually a later bedtime. We just play it by ear according to her mood.
My Bedtime Routine: She outright refuses her bedtime oatmeal these days, has been for about a month. She now just helps me water our plants, get a clean diaper and pjs on, turn on her fan for white noise and nurse until she's out. I lay her down after she's been out around 30 minutes.
Favorite Toy: She got some good ones for her birthday that she adores! The Zany Zoo, her PB rocking horse, any books that make noise and just random objects she finds around the house like wrapping paper rolls.
Clothes Size:  9 month and 6-12 month.
Diaper Size: Size 3 
Milestones Reached:  Running everywhere! Since she got the whole walking thing down, she literally runs everyplace now. It's like she walked for the first time, and decided crawling was for the birds. She takes quite a few tumbles through the course of the day, but overall does really well. She's even starting to master changing directions and the controlled fall. It's so adorable to watch.
Favorite Foods: Spaghetti, Green Beans, ice cream, Teddy Grahams, vanilla wafers, whole grain Eggos, and sweet potato fries. Most everything else, she could take or leave. After loving them for so long, she won't touch bananas and avocados anymore.  

Best Mood: I never thought I would see the day that I could honestly claim Caroline to be a "happy child" but praise the Lord she has actually come around. She is just a happy little chick 95% of the time now and that makes for a 100% happy mama. 
Teeth: two bottom teeth and two top teeth all through and she has four more all visible through her gums but not quite ready to pop through just yet.
Words: Mama, Dada, Mamaw, Papa, Bye, Hi, Arf, No no.  Waving, panting like a dog, growling and mimicking sounds like clicking your tongue and animal noises are her strong points too. And we've added Amen, Bible, Minnie (mimmy), and bellybutton (bubuh as she pokes my bellybutton) and Bubby, my nephew. she does really well with B and M words. She's got a mean chicken and horse impression, too. Oh, and she moos when she sees cows.
Crawling: Walking/Running: Walking all over the place, standing from a below-parallel squat and sprints to faceplant are all strong points of hers.


I'll get a birthday (actual and party) recap post up sometime this weekend and I hope to start posting more regularly here soon. Been a busy, fun summer with lots of family time so posting has taken a backseat for awhile.
