You are 16 months old today, I just don’t know where the time went. As fast as the past 16 months have gone I can only imagine how fast the next 16 years are going to go. This past month you have just blossomed into a independent little person. Don’t get me wrong, you are still a Mommy’s Girl through and through but you also want to do things yourself and you have ideas about how things are suppose to go. It is so much fun watching you learn and grow, you change each and every day.
You are learning signs and using them all the time. You have mastered more, drink, eat, brush teeth, please, nurse/milk and you are learning thank you and telephone. I’m learning new signs all the time and trying to teach them to you so this list grows all the time.
You have mastered the spoon. You have yogurt for breakfast most mornings and for the longest time I’ve put the yogurt on the spoon and then gave it to you and you put it in your mouth. This month you figured out how to get the yogurt on the spoon yourself and go from there. It is pretty messy but you love being independent so it’s worth it.
You have 8 very cute little teeth, the top four front and bottom four front. I think you might be getting a molar but can’t tell for sure.
For about two weeks you gave me a glimmer of hope that one day you might sleep for longer periods of time and I loved it. You slept for 4 to 7 hours at a time and it was so nice. And then one day it was over and I cried a little. 🙂 This is one reason that I think you might be teething again.
You are a full on walker now. You still fall a lot and have a very cute little toddle but everyday you get more confidant and fall less.
You finally hit 20 pounds. Yay! You are getting so big. I look at you sleeping on my chest and can’t believe that you are the same little baby that we brought home 16 months ago. You are the coolest little person that I know and I’m so proud to be your Mama.
I love you Lily Bean,
