My girl turned one a couple of weeks ago! She had her golden birthday even. I can hardly believe that just about a year ago I was waking up wondering when she would come. Ryan joked that once it was December my mind said okay baby time. I am so glad I get to share a birthday month with her! She’s such a gift and we are so thankful.
What we have learned…that this girl really loves to climb, read books, and hang out with Asher. We’ve learned that she knows what she wants and will let us know!
What we are enjoying…A fenced in yard! Reading books, playing, Thanksgiving, and indoor workouts.
What are struggles…sleep! Still working on sleeping through the night. Asher seems to struggle with Melea wanting to play with all his toys!
Most exciting milestones…lots of walking, sleeping a little better, and turning 1!! Words like mama, dada, no, and ba for Boaz.
What Melea seems to like…walking, being held, yogurt, cottage cheese, Boaz, babies, climbing, reading books, climbing stairs, dancing, and all her people.
Dislikes seem to be…getting in the car seat, diaper changes, being set down, sitting down in the high chair, when people don’t give her food, when Asher puts a blanket over her head, and when Asher shuts the door to his room.
What sleep looks like…she takes a great afternoon nap from like 12-3 or 1-3. Usually naps on the go and stays asleep when we get somewhere. Bedtime is around 8-8:30. She still wakes up a couple times a night and sleeps until like 8-9.
She’s eating…all the food! Since cutting back on nursing, she’s eating more. She seems to like yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream, and really whatever food other people have ha! She will spit food out and try to feed food to Boaz too.
Who we have seen…the Roses for Thanksgiving! Ally and Levi too while they were home. We had a family birthday party for her on her birthday and then two separate ones with extended family. Plus, fun texts saying happy birthday on her actual day (I love when people do that!).
At the last doctors appointment…she’s petite but fairly tall! She was almost 17 pounds and she is 29 and a half inches tall. So that’s about 60% for height and like 10% for weight. She could use to gain a few pounds! She wears 12 month clothes and size 3 diapers.
