12 month stats
Emma had her 12 month check up with the doctor this week. All is well. She is petite but growing beautifully. She cried for her vaccines, but only for a second, and has otherwise had a wonderful week.
Weight: 18 lbs 2.2 oz (8th percentile)
Height: 28.25 inches (23rd percentile)
She started walking at about 11.5 months. She now has 8 teeth. She waves hello and goodbye. She says "Hi" and "Dye dye" (instead of "bye bye"). She points at things and says "Dats". She jabbers on and on in baby language, nodding her head and gesturing to emphasize her points. I nod and agree accordingly. She knows when I'm asking her a question; sometimes she understands, other times she just nods "yes" in hopes of getting something out of the deal. She loves food, particularly whatever I am eating. She's still trying to figure out how to drink milk out of a sippy cup without spitting it out. She still nurses several times a day (and at night). She still doesn't sleep straight through. She loves bath time and has to be told a thousand times each bath to sit on her bottom. She adores the cats and dog. She's starting to throw tantrums and I'm trying to learn how to not give in. She is my greatest source of joy.
