*On August 9th, 2013 Edith turned 13 months!!!*
Weight: Around 17lbs
Height: 29.5 inches
Likes: Going to the park. Playing with other babies. Balls. Kitty. Climbing on furniture. Rocking in her chair or really any chair (even those that don’t rock). Nursing. Music. Dancing.
Dislikes: Getting in her car seat most of the time. Going to bed before 8pm. This month she hasn’t cared for napping.
Sleeping: This month although better than last still had some pretty miserable moments. Last week Edith didn’t nap at all on Monday, hardly slept Monday night and didn’t nap Tuesday. Let me tell you that was a extremely challenging week and we were all exhausted. Otherwise sleeping is going pretty well; Edith sleeps from 8-9pm to 6:30-7:30am and is usually up once to nurse, sometimes twice. She nurses to sleep and then we put her in her crib where she sleeps until anywhere between 1:30am-6am when she comes to bed with us. Napping has been hit or miss. Some days she takes two naps, others one and lately sometimes none.
Eating: Edith loves to eat and she lets us know when she is hungry or thirsty. We haven’t mastered many signs but more which in Edith’s case means hungry or more food and water are both used throughout the day by Edith. Edith has been loving pluots, grapes, melon, pesto rice, tempeh, beans, broccoli, kale chips, raw crackers and raisins, among other things. She also nurses 5-8x per day.
Playing: We have attempted to go to a number of meetups this month although napping has gotten in the way a bit. We have made it to a few park meetups and book babies. Edith loves to socialize with other people and babies and it’s wonderful to get out of the house.
Wearing: (same as last month). E is wearing mostly 6-12 month tops, some 12-18 months and even some 2T shirts that are just a little big for her.
