14th Month Update!

Well, here we are again one month older and she’s still teething her freaking molars!! Motrin is still on the menu daily she seems to be on the upswing of it thankfully. I am still shocked I have a 14month old, she is almost a toddler! She is acting like she is one, throwing a tantrum here and there, skipping naps, bottle free, and picking out here own shoes daily now.

Eating/Drinking: She is such a good eater we are so blessed in this area there is nothing she will turn down. She eats 3 solid meals a day and 2 snacks in between meals. She loves homemade macaroni and cheese, pomegranates, and cookies! She is doing awesome with her sippy cups and drinks 20oz of whole milk a day (AM and PM) then during then during the day she drinks ice water.

Clothing: She is still in 12-18month clothing, size 3 shoes, size 3 diapers. Some brands like zara she wears 6-9 month stuff! She weighs 19 pounds and is 30 inches tall!

Sleeping: I think she had a mini sleep regression during month 14 she was waking up 3-4 times a night crying and wanting me or milk. I finally stopped going in there to check on her and I let her cry it out. She’s still 6:30pm-6:30am. She is napping from 9:30-11am and has been skipping her afternoon nap.

On The Go: She is a girl on the go!! Little lady loves to run a muck allllll day long, from sun up to sun down she’s going at 100%, trying to keep up with her is getting exhausting. Her personality is developing so much its crazy, she picks out her shoes everyday and hands them to me to put on. If she wants to go on a walk she will go get her stroller and push it into the kitchen and hit me with it till I take her. We go on 1-2 walks, the park, and errands everyday. Her favorite thing right now is The Wheels on The Bus, we watching The Mother Goose Club 10 times a day..I know every song and rhyme. When she is ready to watch the wheels on the bus she comes up to us and starts rolling her arms like they do on the show and hands me the remote.

Teeth: She has for sure 14 and I think over the past few weeks she’s getting in 2 more on the top it seems because she has had her hands in her mouth crying. I CANT wait for the teething stage to be over because I am over it.

All in all not to much has changed from month 13 she is just getting smarter and cuter everyday. She is still a huge cuddle bug, daddies girl, laughing fool. Couldn’t be more in love with her and so happy she is ours! Sorry about the lack of pictures she is sure hard to keep still these days!!
