13 Months

Carys you are 13 months old today!  You are about 22-23 pounds and 28 1/2 inches long.  You are just starting to move out of some 12 month clothes, and I'm buying you 12-18 months for fall.  You are still in stage 3 diapers and are a great sleeper.  You take a 2 hour nap in the morning, a 1 hour nap in the afternoon (usually!) and sleep 12-13 hours at night!  

At your 12 month check-up you met your new doctor and after your exam he said, "She's doing great - healthy, and developing well -- a little chunky, but that's okay!" Ha!  You also had your first sucker after your shots and that quieted you right down!  I can't even begin to tell you how much I hate holding you down for your shots, but I was happy to see how much you enjoyed your sucker and that it helped make you forget all about the pain!  I did have to take the sucker out of your mouth to put you in your car seat and I thought you were going to have a second meltdown, but thankfully you were a happy camper as soon as we popped it back in!

Ever since you started walking - you have been on the go non-stop!  This month you've really mastered walking on uneven ground and are no longer afraid to venture onto the grass unassisted.  You still love to stop and check out the grass, sticks, leaves and flowers, but thankfully you're starting to learn to not eat everything!  You've had quite a few good bumps and bruises, which are really hard for mommy and daddy, but you just shake them off and keep going!

 You are definitely getting into things and our biggest struggle is keeping you out of the garbage!  You've also discovered the laundry chute and it's always interesting to sort through the laundry and find letters, blocks and shoes!  The other day you were insistent on having a tomato from the bag Grandma brought over.  I decided to let you have a small one to carry around and a few minutes later I noticed it was missing.  I looked everywhere and could NOT find it!  I was really worried it was going to end up rotting somewhere until, I finally found it!

Oops - looks like Mommy forgot to shut the bathroom door again!

Carys, you are such a joy to be around and we have so much fun with you.  You are so sweet.  I love that you will just randomly walk up to Mom and Dad and hug our legs!  And there's nothing better than getting a sweet, slobbery kiss from you!  It makes us feel so good!  We love you!
