Well, I was just going through some old posts, and reminiscing…Bella turns 15 months next week. Tonight, we had such a nice family dinner (Bella’s first taste of crockpot ribs, and she quite enjoyed – kept doing the more sign over and over…she liked the sweet potato too, of course…) and I was looking over at B and I said, “I wonder what you are going to look like when you get a little bigger and have some more hair…” Jeremy looked at me, and said I was just thinking that same thing yesterday…I realized as I looked at her, she still just looks like my little baby girl, although she has definitely grown so much over the past year…to others she probably looks like a toddler…but not to me…I wonder if it will always feel that way?
Anyhow, I realized I haven’t been record keeping very well lately, and I don’t want to forget this stuff (because the last year already seems like a blur) so I am going to write it down now.
Bella is now RUNNING…albiet, like a drunkard with no sense whatsoever…She is hilarious, and loves to play chase (I’m gonna get you) with us. I’m hoping the clumsiness is due to the relatively short period she’s been moving on two feet, and not a hereditary trait she gained from my graceful genes. She is gaining about two new words per week, and learning to pronounce some of the words that she already knew a little better so that I can tell it REALLY is the word that I though it was. Even funnier, she is babbling like crazy when she plays or wants something. I swear earlier today she was cursing me out in her own funny baby language…she often does this when she wants me to do something until I figure it out (today, she wanted me off the phone and to put her on her rocking horse…go figure..) I have a hard time not laughing when she does this…but I really do try not to, I don’t want to be rude- she can’t help it that she can’t talk yet!
As she has grown, her routine has finally settled into what I am hoping will last for a couple more years.
Wakes about 6 am (nurses until 7…yes, I know…its ridiculous…but it gives me an extra hour of rest after I drag myself out of bed and get her – last feeding we need to ween)
Breakfast – 8am
Lunch – around 11:30-noon
Nap – 12:30 – 2:30 or 3
Anyhow…enough record keeping for the night…I’m beat. I’ll have a true record keeping update next week after her 15 mo doc appt.
