Wee babe update: 15 months
It’s been a while since I’ve done a wee babe update. Gotta catch up all up to what she’s been up to lately.
As you know, she’s been a walking machine for about 2.5 months now. She’s on the verge of running.
She easily goes up and down stairs (and makes me nervous every single time I might add).
She got up onto the couch the other day for the first time, grabbed the tweenagers iPod, got back off the couch, and then proceeded to try and plug it into the docking station for about 5 minutes. She’s definitely persistent. She likes tables too. She’s starting to walk up small stairs standing up.
She gets off the bed backwards no problem.
She still loves to play with doors, but mostly the kitchen cabinet doors so we have them ALL locked up. Lately, she’s been working at opening doors with door nobs. I’m sure this will come soon.
She’s not saying many words yet (mama, papa, JJ) but can sign more, hungry, thirsty and all done. Her delay in her speech must be caused by the fact that we speak to her in French, she is spoken to in English all other times, and we have been signing to her. 3 languages in not too shabby!
She’s big into dancing, and loves to sing a little song.
She’s a good sleeper. She goes to bed at 7:30pm and up at 6:30am without waking (usually). No crying when she goes to bed either – usually a smile.
She’s has 12 teeth. She’s working on her eye teeth (ouch!).
She adores swimming. It’s like she’s had about 4 red bulls when the water hits her skin. Legs moving, arms waving, and moving around like a fish out of water. I guess you can imagine that she loves baths too.
She picks up anything and everything that is the same size as her or bigger and absolutely must share it with you.
She likes most food. Not too picky.
She has an never ending cough and it seems that she gets better, then a random fever, then worse, running nose, cough, better, worse… Ahhh the joys of daycare and having a +1 year old.
She woofs like a dog when she hears a dog, blows raspberries, and tweets like a bird.
Up until just yesterday, I didn’t know she loves to garden (toddler gardening) but it was kind of a given since she adores to be outside. She likes to mow the lawn with her daddy.
She likes to show her tummy when she’s not in a onesie.
She likes to rearrange the shoes frequently and won’t hesitate to give them too you when she wants to go outside. You might even go as far as saying she has a shoe obsession.
She will give you a diaper if you ask her for one but still cries when you try to change her.
She’s beginning to be interested in books.
She likes being a menace, sitting on the tweenager’s stomach, punching her in the face, and she’s cute (so says the tweenager).
She likes to twirl her hair (like her mama).
She helps clear the table after dinner.
She’s obsessed with buttons. Phones, remote controls, VCR’s, washing machines, dishwashers, computer keyboards, etc… if it has a button, the wee babe needs to push it.
Detests her bike helmet (more on that tomorrow).
She gives great hugs and kisses.
She 98% joy, 2% handful. We love her to bits.
