Another month has come and gone so quickly. If I don’t journal at least once a week, I forget everything that we’ve done, and we really do a lot! On the days that I work, Jane continues to spend time with Momsey, but if I’m home, we try to take at least one outing a day to keep us both entertained. She is highly social and still loves her water table and playing outside, Harrison, reading, swimming, dancing, music, and everytime she get her hands on the remote, she says “Jake” and points it at the television. I usually end up letting her watch 20-30 minutes of Jake and the Neverland Pirates a day so that I can prepare dinner without having to pull her out of cabinets or away from the dog’s ears. Also, thanks to my Dad, she now knows how to climb a ladder. First thing in the morning when we go to change her diaper and get her dressed, she pats her head and asks for a bow. Adorable! She will sometimes gives us kisses when we ask now, and it is the most heartwarming thing in the world. Our love for her just continues to grow and grow!
Weight: 24 pounds, 6 ounces (just above 75th %-ile)
Shoe Size: 4
Clothing: 18 month
Sleep: Well, we’re still night weaning and some night are better than others. In addition to night weaning, Jane can’t decide whether or not she needs a morning nap, so we’re all kinds of topsy turvy right now.
Milestones: She’s walking!! On August 7, while I was at work, she started walking all over the place like a pro. When Andrew called to tell me, I told him to push her down and not let her. He didn’t listen 😉 She’s becoming very independent, and I can actually walk into a different room now without her freaking out. She will even go explore on her own. She can also point to her head, nose, ears, mouth, toes, belly button, and chest. She eats well, and she says: book, bow, doggie, spoon, daddy,bye bye, ball, and Jake (of the Neverland Pirates). She can sign please, more, water (which looks more like thank you), food, and milk. Sometimes she can put the right shapes in the shape sorter, and she’s been putting her stacking rings on the stacking thing for about a month or so.
