12 months

Emmy girl is a year old!

Height: 27 3/4 inches (10th-25th percentile)
Weight: 17lbs 10oz (5th percentile)

 What are you up to these days?
You have such a sweet personality and your smile is precious (you smile all the time, except for monthly pictures).

You say ma ma, da da, na na, ba ba (bye bye), and you attempt to say baby, balloon (boon), that (dat or sometimes da da) and book.  You can make animal sounds for cow, elephant, dog, and sheep.  

You have two bottom teeth and one top tooth, but three more are coming in on the top.  

You love to eat most anything we give you.  The doctor said no foods are off limit and we can even try peanut butter and shell fish.  We're getting ready to start weaning you from formula and bottles and move onto real milk.  

You still aren't interested in walking or standing for that matter.  If I can get you steady on your feet, you will stand for a few seconds (you have even taken 4 steps), but you would rather crawl.  You pull up on everything to stand, but you did stand up totally unassisted in the middle of the living room once.

You sleep about 12 hours a night.  You take a morning nap, but it's getting shorter and shorter.  I'm hoping once you drop your morning nap you will sleep more consistently in the afternoon.  You nap anywhere from 45 min to 2 hours.

We're still not really sure of your eye color.  They are either hazel or brown.

You wear a size 3 diaper, 12 month clothes and size 4 shoes.

You definitely have girly instincts and it's so cute.  You love necklaces and put them on whenever you have the chance and you are so sweet when you  love on your babies.
You and Bryce have a wonderful relationship and we love to watch you play together.  I hope you will always get along so well.

Maybe you'll grow some hair in your next 12 months, ha!  And maybe even look at the camera (and smile) for pictures!  I can't wait to see what the next year brings, but I DON'T want to rush it.
