Happy 1st Birthday Vera

Our sweet little lady is such a dolly, always full of joy and is always on the go….this is what she is up to at 1 year old….
  • She now has 2 teeth on the bottom and is working on cutting the top 2
  • She sleeps through the night and goes to bed around 7:30pm and wakes up about 7am
  • She takes 1 short morning nap from 20 minutes-1 hour and a long afternoon nap from 1-4pm
  • She still nurses 2 times a day (down from 5 times a day at 11 months) – before afternoon nap and bedtime – I am not too worried about weaning her from those 2 until she takes whole milk better
  • She can now stand unassisted for short periods of time
  • Took her 1st few steps on the evening of her first birthday
  • Scoots around furniture and walks assisted most places
  • Preferred mode of transportation to get some place quickly is crawing and she is ruining ALL her pants in the process!
  • Loves to be outside playing – loves the sandbox, swinging, riding in her car, eating anything from nature, etc. 🙂
  • Babbles all the time and says Dada and means it
  • Waves hello and bye bye and shakes head yes
  • Starting to understand simple directions like “no Vera” and “Do you want more?”
  • Loves to be sung to, dance to music
  • Starting to play with play food and loves our little tykes house in the basement
  • Pushes her stroller around
  • Likes to ride on things like cars or Solon’s tractor
  • Still wears 6-12 month clothes/12 month but her legs are getting long – her waist is not ready for the next size up though, wears size 3 diapers
  • Starting to wear shoes and getting used to them and socks
  • prefers straw sippy cups to the traditional ones (I should own stock in sippy cups 😉
  • ticklish on her belly and laughs a little more liberally (you still have to work hard unless you are Solon)
  • loves beads and necklaces and wearing one at a time
  • favorite foods are pancakes, all fruit except bananas, meat, yogurt, breads, crackers….still working on veggies and eggs
  • Weighs 18 lbs 4 oz (20th percentile)
  • 29 3/4 inches (31st percntile)
We have a happy, healthy baby girl on our hands. She will be walking and talking before we know it. I still cuddle her a little longer after she falls asleep and enjoy me and her time each night before bed….she is a true gift and we love her forever and always!  Love you sweet baby girl!
