[Baby #2] Kenley Drew - 12 Month Update

Height:  29" (40%)
Weight: 19lb 3oz (42%)
Head:17.5" (35%)
Teeth:  8 (and working on her bottom molars)

Wears 6-12m, but starting to move her into 12-18 as she's in that stage where both fit.    

Overall, her sleep isn't too bad.  The last week hasn't been so great because she's working on cutting a molar.  She's a breeze to put down, just needs her blankie and bink and she's good to go.  Still an early riser, usually waking at 4am for her paci and again around 5:30 for the day.  Sometimes we'll snuggle until 6, when she gets her bottle. 

Naps are pretty solid, too. Morning nap lasts an hour to 90min and afternoon is usually an hour. 

Butterfly. This kid, doesn't mind being held by anyone.  Waves to everyone from her stroller like she's Miss America. She's had a blast playing at birthday parties and play dates acting like she's one of the big kids and not one of the babies.  

Anything she can chew that isn't honey.  She's tried strawberries, fish, eggs, and basically gets the same thing that we or Ashlynn is eating.  Including on occasion (meatless) nuggets, veggie burger patties - loves them, and Ellio's.   Yes, I know, in all our clean and organic eating efforts we still eat Ellio's, nothing like it and everyone approves.   She loved everything from Thanksgiving and has been slowly transitioning to whole milk.  

Books - Are You a Cow?, Hand Hand Fingers Thumb,  (both of those were Ashlynn's favorites too!) Chicka Chicka Boom Boom  
Foods - Blueberries, raspberries, blackbeans, mozzarella, turkey, meatballs, lasagna
Songs - Twinkle Twinkle, If You're Happy and You Know It, Let It Go, Shake It Off
Toys - Little People Castle/Farm, Slide, Blocks and Stackers, Dolls and Stroller/Shopping Cart

High Fives. Blows Kisses.  Kisses when asked. Claps on cue. Throws a ball and kicks it too.  Puts a ball in a basketball hoop.

Climbs the sliding board and goes down all by herself.  Even stands at the top like a true daredevil.  Stands on the little ride on horse.  Climbs onto the couch and coffee table.  Stands on the kiddie table chairs. The world is her playground.

Words:  Mommy, Daddy, Aggie (Ashie), Doggie, Bottle (Bob-a), Baby, Ball, Here (when she hands us a book), Moo, Mwah ("Ma" when blowing kisses)
