Well, our sweet girl is about 16 months old (in 2 days to be exact) and we just finally made it in to her pediatrician for her 15 month Well Baby exam. I know, I know.
She is 32" long, putting her in the 83% for height. She weighs 29 lbs., putting her in the 99% for weight and her chrome dome is 18.5" in diameter, which actually has dropped her down to the 79% for skull size (praise the Lord, she has been off the charts in this category her entire life until now).
She is a corn-fed little monster, that is for sure.
And when I say corn-fed, I mean corn-fed.
Sofia is blossoming. I was excited to say "YES" to every single one of the doctors "can she?" questions.
- Wave hello/good-bye
- Use a fork/spoon
- Communicate clearly with words and/or sign language
- Walk backwards (odd question, right?)
- Obey commands
- Say "Momma" and "Dadda" discriminately
- React appropriately
- .... and a bunch more questions my pregnant brain can't remember LOL
Sofia now says about 20 words, some of which are names (and she says those discriminately). She is also pulling random signs out that I tried to teach her at 6 months old and she seemed to never catch on to, but obviously her brain saved them away somewhere because 10 months later they are making their debut.
Yesterday, she sat on something metal (which was super hot from the sun), jumped up and said "hot!". Her brain is constantly amazing me with all these new little developments. I am so in awe of this beautiful little person.
Sofia's favorite things:
- Swimming/Playing in the water
- Eating (it's true)
- Sorting like-items
- Dancing to music
She eats breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack (smoothie with vitamins) and dinner and she really hasn't been picky at all. She hasn't thrown tantrums in at least a month and has been very obedient and calm lately -- although she does have her moments as does anyone. She has 8 teeth and is currently cutting 4 molars at once, which seem to be stationary right now, giving her a little break in the pain.
And on top of all the growth and development, boy have we had a fun summer!
We found out we were adding to our gang of misfits!
We helped Mommy pick out some clothes for our new little brother, Knox.
Well, it's been one heck of a summer so far and it's not even over yet! It sure has been hot lately though so I have a feeling there is lots of water play in the future for us!
