Avery's 14th Month


On June 28th you turned 14 Months Old. (I know, I know, I'm a little behind in posting this. We've been so busy with selling our house, packing and looking for a new house that I'm a little bit behind.)

At your 1 year check-up at the doctor you weighed 21 lbs. 14 ozs. (77th percentile) and you were 31 inches tall (95th percentile)! I think you're probably very close to being at those stats still.

You are wearing 18 and 24 month clothes.

Shoe Size:
Size 5

Size 4

You have your 8 front teeth (bottom and top) and you've gotten your 2 top 1st year molars in now with your bottom 2 on their way in as well. This probably explains why you're so crabby lately. :-(

Your hair keeps getting lighter and lighter so I would say it's a very light brown and your eyes are a grayish brown still.

You usually go to sleep between 8 and 9 and you generally sleep until 9 the next morning!You are such a great sleeper and Mommy and Daddy appreciate that. You usually take 2 naps a day that are usually around 1-2 hours long.

You love pancakes, toaster sticks, peanut butter sandwiches, macaroni, yogurt, apples, grilled cheese and you love fries and chips. You've got feeding yourself down now and won't even think about eating off of a spoon/fork from us. You have to do it yourself (oh joy!). You generally get one 10oz. bottle of whole milk right before bed and then whole milk and/or water in your sippy cup throughout the day. You drink from a sippy cup and straw very well.

Favorite Toys:
You love things with buttons. You would love to just play with cell phones and remote controls if we'd let you. You also love getting everything out of my purse and making a mess whenever you get the chance.

You love to sing and dance and have been learning the movements to "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed". It is just too cute to watch you do the movements.

You have slacked off on vocalizing this month. You like to yell and use your voice, but you haven't said any new words other than "hot".

You have quite the personality these days. You are strong willed, very independent and pretty demanding, but you can be sweet at sugar too. You are very much a girly girl and love shoes, purses, chap-stick, baby dolls and brushing your hair. You like to brush my hair too now and I will gladly let you (except you usually hit me in the head with the brush). Speaking of hitting. You are a hitter. We are working on that, but I'm afraid it's not sinking in as quickly as I would like. :-( You love water... bath time and swimming in the pool are a lot of fun for you. Speaking of the pool, you've been going almost every weekend with Grandma and you're getting quite the cute little tan. :-)

I think that about covers your 14 month update. You are such a blessing and we love you so very much Pretty Girl!
