Miss H is 13 months old

Harper you are THIRTEEN months old!


This month you weigh 17.12 lbs  You are now 29 inches long! You are wearing a size 3 diaper.  You are tall enough for 12 month cloths...but still so skinny! We are trying to wear 12 month but your 9-12 month still fit too. You are still in the 10% for weight...but no one would know by the way you eat.

Monthly stats:

Nursing: NOPE!!  You are officially no longer nursing.  You did pretty good with winging since mommy went out of town.  But you still asked when I got home for milk.  Mommy was sad to see this go, but has learned to snuggle with you in new ways.  We still have our bonding time.      

Eating Solids: Miss EATER!!! You can eat, eat, and eat.  You eat more than any child I have ever seen.  You love food and that is good since you are such a skinny little one.  You really are not too picky when it comes to food. 

Sippy Cup: My little water lover.  You really love your cup but only with water.  We still are trying to learn to like milk, no hope thus far.  Maybe one day....

Smiling: You smile all the time. Your smile lights up the room!! I love it.

your new silly smile
Talking:  You say momma, dada, uh-oh, and hi. I think I like your Hi the best because of the cute voice you use!   You also make new noises that are soon going to lead to new words.  You love to sing too!

Sign language:  You still can sign back to us dog, ball, water, milk, more, eat, all done, please, baby, banana, thank you, cat, hot, cheese, bread, and play,,,.  Your new signs are gentle, elephant, bird, paci (you made your own sign for this one), and music. You are such a good little communicator which makes our life way easier.

Awareness:  You have really started to notice things and how they work more and more each day.  Recenlty you have been obsessed with lights and fans. You love to see things work...

Observer:  You still love to watch others.  You really would love for them to all WAVE back to you!  You are so funny to see your little brain working away up there. 

WINSTON and BOB: Oh the love that grows and grows.  You and Winston will be the best of friends I can just tell.  You love to sit and hug on him.  Sometimes he probably wishes you didn't but he takes it anyways.  Bob bob and you are so funny.  You love to give her treats and watch her.  She will be sad when yall are no longer room mates in the new house :-)  

Sleep: You are a champ at this.  Actually you have been great at napping any where lately especially with our traveling.  You still need 2 naps which is fine with mommy.  I will be sad when that morning nap leaves us.  I also think you will sleep in a little longer once we get our bigger house and you don't hear daddy in the morning.  But then I will be sad that we don't get to snuggle from 6 am till 8.   

Your hands: You are becoming a pro at music.  You just love it.  You also are trying to use a spoon and fork while eating.  You haven't figured them out yet but you are trying.  

Mouth:  Tooth count- 5 1/2....still however I can see some white spots forming.  I know soon we will see a few more. 

Your legs:  Walking, dancing, and "jumping" you can do...but now you are trying to run! Man are you getting fast these days.  Those cute little legs sure can go.  I love watching you "run" around the house. What a cutie you are!!

Bath time:  I love bath time...I love that we get to sit and relax together.  Plus that is where we learn all about your animals and the sounds they make.  Thanks to bath time you now can make a lama sound and elephant sound.  We love our animal bath toys! Oh and yes you are still in your little tub.

Giggles:  You laugh a lot these days.  Sometime at mommy and daddy for being silly and other times just because.  You laugh at Winston too when he is rolling around and acting crazy.  Your giggle makes my heart smile.      

Dislikes: You dislike it when you don't get your way...let the little fits begin! However you can normally pull it together pretty quickly.  You dislike it when its time to change dirty diapers, you would rather play. Still dislike milk..grrr! 

You had a few FIRST this month! 

Your first hospital stay!!
Your first time away from mommy and daddy
Your first over night baby sitter..thank you BB!!

Favorite toys this month are pretty much the same:

This little shape carry it around all over the house. 
Your car that Queen Tia and Co gave you for Christmas....we can't keep you out of it!

Your new love taking walks in it
13 months are now a toddler! I am not taking this change so well as I still see you as my sweet baby.  However, we are very excited to see what this next year has to offer.  I love to watch you learn and grow everyday.  You continue to show daddy and I what love is all about. We are very blessed to have you as our daughter.  Love you to the moon and back!

Next month will begin a new monthly comparison from 12 months on...

Your FIRST year!
