Little E @ 14 Months

7.20.2012

Every single day I see more and more of my little baby E slip away! She is becoming more of a toddler by the hour and it is simply amazing to watch her grow and develop. Lately she has become more independent and focused in her play. It's during these times that that I love to sit back and quietly observe. I watch as she turns each new object over, moving it from hand to hand, and examining each little detail. I always wonder what exactly she's thinking. Whatever it is, she is usually in such deep concentration that she sticks her little tongue out of the side of her mouth. When she was tiny I worried that I might not enjoy having an older baby as much as I loved having a newborn but now I know that that was just crazy! Every age and stage has been amazing and this age is no different. She is becoming more and more of her own person and I'm so blessed to watch her little personality unfold. I can't thank God enough for blessing us with this amazing little girl!
Growth: 22.2 pounds, 29 inches (approximately), has 4 new teeth for a total of 12
Likes: drinking from my water cup, giving hugs and kisses, Elmo, blowing kisses, being silly/laughing, sitting in her little blue chair, talking on the phone, saying new words/learning new signs
Dislikes: being told no/not getting her way, having her face washed, waiting for something when she wants it


Favorite Foods: bananas, mustard (on anything!), strawberries, cantaloupe


Favorite Songs: 1234, ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle, Itsy Bitsy Spider


Favorite Toys: her babydoll, Shape Sorter, Learning Purse,  Leap Frog Fridge Phonics, Princess keys, anything that she is NOT supposed to have
Favorite Books: Pat the Bunny, Dear Zoo


Favorite Words: uh oh, Bubba, please, momma, Mimi, up, roar (like a lion)
Favorite Signs: Please, water, eat, more


Favorite Activities: bath time/swimming, reading, watching Elmo or Baby Signing Time, riding her bike, opening and shutting doors, taking off her bow and handing it to me, pushing chairs/stools around the floor, exploring the backyard, climbing the windowsill


Firsts: long road trip, boat ride, fireworks, visit to a real zoo, decorating/eating a sugar cookie, drinking only cows milk
Sweet Little Details:smacks her lips while doing the sign for water, says I love you in the sweetest voice, recognizes the ring for Face Time and knows it's her Daddy calling, LOVES to eat, always wants in Mimi's lap when she is trying to do something, says up all day long, learned all of her cousins names, noticed my haircut and then ran her fingers through it and did the sign for pretty
I don't want to forget: How sweet and cuddly she is. She comes up to me all throughout the day to kiss me on the leg or the hand. Sometimes she will grab my hand and just lay her head down on it.  She will almost always give me a hug or a kiss when I ask for it and she loves to make the smacking sound when she gives a kiss. She has also started laying on my chest like she did when she was a tiny baby. Each night before bed she will lay down on my chest for several minutes. She wraps her little arms around me and snuggles her head under my neck. I usually sing to her and several times throughout the song she will lift her head up, look me in the eyes, and give me a big kiss right on the lips. I absolutely love this and hope it's not just a phase she is going through. Those snuggles, hugs, and kisses make my day.
  Happy 14 Months Baby Girl! 
You are, without a doubt, our little sunshine!
