Our little girl turns ONE this week!
Milestones//Special Moments: First real word – mama but now it’s all dada all the time // Speed crawling connoisseur // Standing on her own with little support, walking along furniture and trying to stand on her own // Trying to take steps! and loves for you to hold her hands and walk her around // 8 teeth – she has a super teethy smile and people always compliment her full mouth of teeth but man it was rough when 7 of them came in at once
Weight/Height: 19.6 lbs, 29 inches tall (42nd percentile for weight and 46th percentile for height)
Hair: Dark Blonde with a little curl to it
Eyes: We thought they were going to be blue, but they’ve shifted to a grayish color
Sleeping: 2 naps – 1st is 9am-10:30ish, 2nd is at 1pm-3ish // bedtime: 6:45-7pm and sleeps until 5:00am-ish, but we let her sing and play in her crib until 6
Nicknames: Ellie, Honey Bunny and Ellie Mae
Likes: #1 best ever is big brother Emerson // eggs! this little girl eat like a bird, and is super picky, but you better have two scrambled eggs for her to devour at breakfast or you’ll be hearing about it!! // reading books with us and to herself // playing with all her brother’s toys. total tag-a-long // shaking her head ‘no’ // clapping and dancing // cuddling/chewing her beloved ‘bunny’ stuffed animal when sleepy // ‘meowing’ back at the cat // other foods: avocados, french fries, mashed potatoes, strawberries, pouches, pretzels, bananas, graham crackers & goldfish and not tons else! we are working on it and offer her tons. // stealing her brother’s glasses right off his head – she’s quick! // pulling her bows off her head during car rides and chewing them // going to swim at the pool and taking baths // playing ‘train tracks’ with Emerson at his train table // being held (lap baby) // saying: “Hiiii” and “what’s that?”
Dislikes: getting dressed/diaper changed // having her nose wiped // getting toys taken away that she steals from her brother. sometimes she slaps and gets quite feisty! // not a big eater, pretty picky // getting strapped in her carseat
We love you sweet Ellie Mae!
