Emmy at 14 months

I'm a few days late on this.  Emmy turned 14 months on Saturday.

I feel like I was a slacker on the last monthly post so this past month I've been jotting down things Emmy is doing (mostly what she's saying) so I would have a better list this month!

She has a growing vocabulary and can say (uh-oh, wow, woah, please, cheese, ball, balloon, book, boot, mama, dada, bye-bye, tickle tickle (cutest thing ever), night night, baby, "doh" for hello, and lots of animal sounds (cow, dog, sheep, elephant, monkey, snake and duck).  No is probably her favorite word, but she uses it when she means yes too.  If she says no and I think she means yes, I say yes and then she says yes.  It's so cute!  She attempts some words, but mostly just says the beginning sound of words. 

She is completely off bottles and it was an easy transition.  She's happy and it didn't affect her sleeping schedule any!  She has 6 teeth and 2 more top teeth coming in.  She is a walking trick now.  If she falls or stumbles she hops right back up rather than crawling.  She's starting to blow kisses to people and can give a high five.  She can point to her head, ears, nose, mouth, tongue and belly when asked and covers her eyes to play peek-a-boo. 

She is wearing size 3 diapers and size 3 or 4 shoe.  Her clothes are all over the place right now.  I'm trying to switch over season and sizes and I'm having such a hard time.  She can wear the 12 month clothes that run big and 12-18 months, but most of our spring stuff is 18 month.  She goes to bed around 7:30 and sleep to 7-7:30.  She still takes a morning and an afternoon nap which vary in length every day.

She continues to be such a happy, loving, go with the flow kind of girl.  She has moments when I think she's going to have a temper, but we're working on managing that now and think it will get much better when she can say more words and communicate with us rather than crying/screaming!  We're loving watching her change and grow each day.
