OMG I am the worst mommy ever! I keep putting off updating these pages and now we are already to August. EEEEK!
Alyssa''s birthday was GREAT! She had so much fun with all of her friends, ate her cupcake like a champion (shocking) and loved playing with her new toys. The biggest hits were her little purse and a big stuffed puppy. She STILL plays with them daily.
She is now 13.5 months old and is ALL OVER THE PLACE! She is running now which is so funny to see since she is so tiny. hehe She climbs up on the couches, chairs, stairs (heaven forbid we carry her up there anymore) and us if we make the mistake of laying on the floor. hehe She can feed herself with a spoon and fork, kind of clumsily, but successfully. The fork is still like stab a piece and eat it, eat five pieces with her fingers, stab another... She has been off of bottles and formula for about a month now and only drinks from a sippy. She is so cute with it!
At her last appointment a couple of weeks ago she was measuring small at only 18lbs so the doctor had us add pediasure to her milk. She looks super healthy, sleeps great, finger nails and hair growing like crazy so I am thinking that she is just going to be short like her mommy. She will go back for another weigh in at the end of this month to see if she is growing. I honestly think she was just starting a growth spurt or in the middle of one b/c she is in the right sized clothes, just a skinny little thing.
She is talking a ton these days too. So far she says up, down, more, I see you, mama, dadda, cat, dog, eat, and many more that I can''t think of off the top of my head. She repeats (or tries to) everything that we say which is SOOOOOO cute!
Ok, I think that catches you up on the "technicalities" of where she is. I will try and be better about getting on here to post more about her day to day. This is such a fun age and Cliff and I are enjoying watching the girls play together more. Stay tuned for more pics and videos. :)
