I know I just updated on her a couple of weeks ago when she turned 14 months, but she has developed so much since then, I want to be sure I document it. :)
She has been talking so much. And I'm especially excited that she has figured out how to string a couple words together. Of course, they aren't super clear all the time, but it's pretty clear and she does hand motions to help you out. She's also picky about when she says it. If she's tired at all, grumpy or eating, she'll just keep her little lips closed.
I Love You
Dadda (and sometimes Daddy, depends on if she's being ornery)
Kaitlyn (I think she's trying to)
nose (and points to it)
teeth (and points to it)
Eye (and points to it)
uh (but not the oh)
poo poo (usually when she is trying to go or has just went)
diaper (occasionally accompanied with a diaper in hand or standing at the changing table)
She loves to ask for kisses and hugs. She'll come up to you with her lips all puckered doing the mmmmmm sound. She also has two different ways she does her hands. One is for up and to pick her up right that second and hold her. The other is to pick her up and set her down wherever she wants. If her hands are close together, it means cuddle time. Love it. Of course, she'll also do that to the dogs to try so hard to get them to lick her hands.
She also knows where the cups are and the milk, so she'll get a cup, stand at the fridge and scream and cry for it. And that led to the poop disaster of last weekend that we are still battling.
On Friday, she had an extra cup of milk, bringing the total of the day to 3 7 oz cups of milk. Which led to no poop on Saturday. Since she normally has perfect poops 3-4 times a day, this led to a rough Sunday. It led to "stuck" poo, and a bath to help her work it out. It led to a golfball sized ball of hard yuckiness and to a 14 month old with hemorrhoids. Which led, to screaming, more baths, infant Advil and lots of fruit and apple juice to help the rest that was backed up in there to come out more smoothly. Which, has so far led to a week of alternating between good poo and diarrhea like poo. Which, has led to an ugly rash that isn't going away as easily as they normally do. Even with creams, liners and using only the bamboo diapers. So, we shall see where this leads us.
But, to end the blog on a funny note. The other night, I was getting Samantha ready for a bath after a dinner of chili left her hair delicious lol. I started running the water while Kaitlyn and Samantha were in the playroom. Then, I went into her room to get out the jammies she would wear after and to grab her towel and all that goodness. Then, Kaitlyn yelled for me. Samantha was in the bathtub. She saw the water, decided that inch or two was enough for her and climbed in. Fully clothed. And diapered. She is a determined little one that's for sure.
