14 Months!

a bit late, as usual. 🙂

she’s so much fun right now, I hardly know where to begin. She is taking lots of steps when at home, but definitely prefers to crawl. It’s fun seeing her take more and more steps. But mama and dada are getting impatient! More and more we are seeing progress, so fingers crossed!

My girl is verbose for a 14 month old though! seems like everyday she’s got a new word! Lately, the most fav word is “no”. (every mother’s dream). She has replaced words she USED to know with No. She shouts “no” at her dog, at me. “No” currently means : Mama, more, i want that, gimme it, etc. AAAAAAh.

In the last few days we’ve been working on animal sounds. She’s picked up quite a few! If I say: C, what does the …{Sheep, dog, lion, horse, monkey,  cow (sometimes), and train (I know it’s not an animal!) }say, she knows the answer! She will say them on a semi-regular basis. (If she’s in the mood, she will say them, so I think that counts as knowing them!).I’ve tried to pick it up on video, but she hasn’t been in the mood when the camera is rolling. 🙂

It’s a lot of fun right now because she’s doing and saying new things all the time! She knows where her nose, mouth, and belly are. I think maybe ears too. She loves hugging and kissing her stuffed animals (Especially night night bear). The last few mornings she has been asking to hold a different stuffed animal when she wakes up in the am… so cute! She got her first shoes- and has since been saying “shoe” fairly often. She loves when I sing songs (finally a captive audience!) and always requests “baa baa black sheep” as soon as I start singing anything (she says ba, ba, ba). Whenever she sees a bottle, she thinks it contains “MUHCK” (milk). This can be problematic when the bottles are empty and for sale in a store and mummy has no “Muhck” with her! Fortunately she hasn’t (yet!) started with the true temper tantrums…She loves handing us stuff, but I’m not yet sure what she expects me to do when I recieve it…

She also is often found learning about gravity… she yells “uh oh” just before dropping/throwing things..funny except during meals…

Speaking of meals…oh my goodness. My formerly good eater has discovered that she doesn’t have to eat anything and everything. She may just waste away at the rate that she is currently (NOT) eating. I have my fingers crossed that her appetite will come back after this teething/cold/runny nose goes away…

I’m sure there is more adorableness that I’m forgetting to mention. Hopefully I’ll be posting a bit more regularly soon, and therefor I’ll be better with the remembering of stuff. 🙂


Hi, I’m alive here, too.

Just updated my running blog (because I finally ran!) and now I’ll try and update here too!

so my last update was sooo long ago I’m not sure how to catch up. I’m going to be lazy and link to the pictures. 🙂 Here’s some bullet points:

  • C will be 14 months old tomorrow! I’ll do an in depth update on her later!
  • In early August, B and I went away for the first time ever without C. She did great! Here’s some pics from our trip!
  • C and I did a road trip on our own while Daddy was out of town. We went to see Aunt Shani get engaged! She was surprised! Here’s a link to Shani’s story. We stayed in 4 states over 5 nights and C did SO WELL. Seriously unbelievable. We caught up with so many friends, it was SO FUN! Here’s a link for pictures. 🙂
  • I went away Labor Day weekend to see my friend from Kindergarten (!!) get married. It was awesome and SO MUCH fun, I hung out with people that I knew 20 years ago–crazy!! Pictures! B spent the time home with C, the longest they had ever been alone together by far. They both did really great and I can tell they have a closer bond now. 🙂 I may have to go away more often!

We had a little “staycation” and got to see my aunt and uncle in Rhode Island for lunch (so yum!) and then we zipped off to Newport. B had never been, and it’s one of my favorite places. He got some great pictures and we had an awesome family day!
