Amelia is 16 months old today. This time last year she had just turned 4 months old and wasn’t even eating solid foods although we’d been given the green light for rice cereal. She wasn’t yet mobile, just a roller, and it would still be three months before she’d start doing the army crawl. These days she’s ALL. OVER. THE. PLACE.
Here are 16 facts about our sweet “Mewa Gwace” on her 16 month birthday:
Her new favorite game is to “hide” beneath the couch cushions.
She will stick her tongue out and go “pbbbbbbbtttttttt” if you say “tongue” and then stick your tongue out at her.
She loves her Spot the Dog books.
She has started saying what sounds like, “Here you go,” only it comes out “Eeeego.”
She loves to take a bath and splash like crazy.
She loves to play peekaboo.
She typically goes to sleep at 8 and wakes at 7.
She got her first love “bite” at daycare this week from a little boy who decided to cut his teeth on her chubby little arm. I guess it looked tasty.
She is wearing size 18 month clothes (most of which were big sister’s) and a size 4 diaper.
She loves to “hide” under the kitchen table with Jack the dog.
She is the youngest grandchild on both sides of the family.
She favors her left hand.
I found out I was pregnant with her two years ago this Saturday. (Pregnancy tests from the Dollar Tree really work.)
She still sometimes takes two naps a day at home. And it’s amazing what I can get done on those two-nap days.
She loves to share yogurt with Daddy.
She always wakes up happy.
