13 Months Old!

Devin is 13 months old!

From January 10

*Devin is wearing a size 4 diaper.

*She is still in 12-18 month clothes.

*She is wearing a size 5 shoe.

*Devin weighs about 23 pounds.

*Devin has 7 teeth and an 8th one coming in right now. I also think she might be trying to get some molars.

*Devin is a really good eater and eats most of what we give her. She spits things out sometimes, but often, if I offer it to her again, she will eat it. Sometimes I think it is the new texture that makes her spit things out the first time.

*Devin has really started to climb on everything lately. She is constantly testing the limits to see how much she can get away with.

*Devin has added a few words to her regular vocabulary with hi being her favorite. She says hi to anyone and everyone who even looks at her when we are out shopping. She also says momma, dadda, dog, cat, and uh oh.

*Devin is often repeating words that we say now. She doesn't use them herself yet though.

*She is also repeating a lot of our actions.

*I am seeing the lights go on with this girl. She now understands how to use the shape sorter and sometimes can even match up the same shapes and get them in!

From January 10

*Devin has increased her independent play time this month and will happily play alone longer and longer.

*Devin still only takes one nap a day that is usually in the mornings and lasts about 2 hours. If I let her, I think she would often sleep 3 for me, but it always interferes with night time sleep when I let her so I usually wake her as she is getting to 2 1/2 hours or so.

*Devin has a fierce independent streak lately and wants to try everything herself. One the other hand, she is very needy for momma when she is tired.

*Devin still nurses about 5 times a day. She shows no signs of stopping, but does love her cow's milk during the day.

*With the exception of some nights, Devin is sleeping 4-5 hour stretches at night these days. We are getting there, slowly but surely.

*We have been working on being able to put Devin down in her crib at night tired, but not asleep. She will do it easily for everyone else, but for momma, she still fights it a little. Daddy hasn't tried it yet, but he will have his chance this week!

*Devin is just barely using her pacifier anymore. She only uses it at bedtime before she goes to sleep. She spits it out almost as soon as she drifts off and no longer takes it during the night. We have really stopped letting her have it at all anytime other than bedtime and she doesn't seem to have an issue with it at all.

*Devin has picked up her walking pace these days, and is also quite an efficient runner when she wants to be as well!

*Devin is obsessed with the toilet these days. Although we are in no way actually potty training, I often sit her on the potty for a few minutes before her bath because it is a time she often goes. The other day she had her first peepee in the potty!

*She also threw her first toy in the potty the other day and then tried to fish it out. We try to keep the lid down, but obviously sometimes we forget. We always keep the door to the bathrooms closed anyway so there is no danger if the lid is open because she is never in there unattended. I just happened to be looking the other direction.

I am sure I am missing things, as she is changing rapidly these days!
