Life with the Wallaces

19 Months {9 days}


It seems like this month it was a crazy busy month which is why Im just now getting around to posting this. Im hoping that this next month slows down and things get back to normal just a little bit. I didnt even take a good picture for this monthly update. Ah things will slow down…

Weight: 25 lbs 9 oz (64th percentile)
Height: being a bit behind I totally forgot to even measure her for height so Ill just save it for next month 🙂
Clothes: 18-24 mths in  pants, Shirts-24mth or 2T, dresses are 18 mth in most brands.
Shoes: size 6
Diapers: size 4 in daytime and size 5 at night

Sleep: She has been way off her schedule and we are trying to get her back on schedule. With traveling a good bit, its definitely thrown her for a loop. Then take into consideration she has been able to sleep later since Chad usually doesn’t go into the store until 8:30 to 9ish. So as close to a normal schedule is about 9 pm to 8 am, but again it varies greatly.
Naps: one nap for 1.5 to 2 hrs (11:30-1:30 at daycare), weekends its 1-1.5 hr nap
Teeth: 12 (6 top, 6 bottom)
Traveling: Birmingham and Beaverton, AL
Talking: Her favorite word to say right now is baby. Everything seems to be referred to as baby. She is talking much clearer now that we have limited her time with her paci to night and naps.
Sick: cold that we finally had to get an antiobiodic for.

Chad and I have spoken many times lately about this but its amazing how much of a little girl she is becoming now. She knows how to do many things and she understands us so well. When did our little girl become so grown up?!

Her new thing for the month is she thinks that things need to be thrown on the ground and absolutely destroyed. Then of course right after it happens she giggles like she did something hilarious. Its so hard to correct her when she does it because her little giggle is quite funny I must admit. Why does parenting have to be so hard?!

Brushing her teeth has become much better and she will even open her little mouth for mommy to brush her teeth. I will tell her that we need to go brush teeth and she runs into the bathroom and wants up on the counter. She likes to watch me brush her little teeth in the mirror. I must admit its absolutely adorable and its something I don’t think I will ever forget.

When we change her diaper now she thinks its quite hilarious to kick us. Something we are definitely working at correcting. She definitely can kick pretty hard.

Favorite Activity: playing in her ball pit
Favorite Books: Veggie Tales book that sings to her when she opens it that she is beautiful (ah yes I love it!)
Favorite Cartoon: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is definitely the favorite this month. She has learned the Hot Dog song and it doesnt matter where she is when that song comes on she starts dancing-so cute!
Favorite Foods: applesauce, bananas, lima beans, mandarin oranges, chicken nuggets, blueberry waffles, crawfish etoufee (any soups we have tried she loves!)
Foods disliked: seems like the list has grown this month. If she doesnt like the looks of it she will not touch it, even if she loved it the night before.
Favorite Songs: If You are happy and you know it (she loves to clap her hands with it)
Dislikes: getting hair washed, vacuum, not getting her way
