It's been an embarassingly long time since I've posted. I've got no excuses. But it's SO GREAT to catch up with everyone (though I've barely even gotten started with that!). I have to be honest and say that for some crazy reason, it is still funky when I try to comment on some blogs. It takes forever and then the screen freezes and I have to wait for it to refresh and it frustrates me. So, if I'm not commenting, it's not because I'm not reading...
So, our little Sofia is a big 16and 1/2 months! Here's the latest:
Sleep habits: With one of us every night - right in the bed now! Ha! We recently gave up even trying to get her in the crib. She sleeps a solid 12+ hours with us in bed and we are happy. Nuff said. I'm done making excuses or giving into pressure to sleep train. She's happy. We're happy.
Eating habits: EVERYTHING. Last week she enjoyed butternut ravioli and shrimp. She seems to eat anything we put in front of her, but then will weirdly dismiss simple foods like last night when she refused peanut butter and jelly. She is nothing if not inconsistent here, except with her favorite food - peas!
She is totally off bottles and loves any straw, big or small.
Actvity: She likes to count things, even though doesn't say numbers. She just sort of grunts for "one, two, three!" She is running everywhere and I'm not sure why she feels the need to get places so quickly. She still likes her cuddle time and will spend morning cuddled watching TV with me in bed. She loves to help with everything, like folding laundry and emptying the dishwasher.
Talking: Regularly says "momma", "daddy", "bye", "no", and "yeah". But that's about it. I feel like she should be more advanced with her language, but I know I need to be patient. She understands everything though and follows directions well ("Sofia, please bring these socks into momma and daddy's room and put them on the bed" task complete in seconds! Love it!) Many times I don't know how she could possibly know some of the things she knows, but she demonstrates new knowledge every day.
Health: Excellent. No colds, no fevers, no stomach bugs. She really hasn't been sick at all and we're thankful. She is still measuring in the 95% for height, 94% for weight, and 97% for her head. She is wearing size 2T everything and size 7 shoes.
Everything this baby girl does is amazing and I love her more every minute of every day.
