14 Months Old

The day isn't over yet so I'm not late on this.

- Shaylin is walking!  I've failed to blog about this major milestone.  Mom fail.  But yes, she is walking.  She was taking only 1 or 2 steps at a time only a month ago.  Now she is mostly walking everywhere she goes.  If she loses her balance & falls down she'll usually crawl to continue on her way. 

- Shaylin has had moments of being a picky eater but for the most part she still eats really well.  Pancakes are still her favorite meal.  Actually, she loves breakfast in general, whether it's pancakes, biscuits, french toast sticks, or scrambled eggs.

- Her vocabulary is getting better, although a lot of her words sound similar.  Her most said word is "Da" (short for daddy).  She can say momma but chooses not to.  She can also say dog (& will woof like a dog, too), milk, ball, hi, uh oh, & thank you (which she says when giving you something).

- She loves watching Sesame Street now.  She doesn't usually watch the entire hour though.  She loves Elmo & Big Bird.

- No matter what tv show we may watch, when the end credits roll, she'll stop what she's doing & clap.  Sometimes she'll do her little booty dance, too.

- When a song plays that she likes, she'll rock her head from side to side.  The Sesame Street intro is one time she'll do it.

- Sleep has finally been going really well.  She's down to 1 nap a day, usually lasting around 2 hours.  She's in bed by 8:30, awake, & eventually puts herself to sleep.  Sometimes with a little bit of a fight but nothing too traumatic.  And she's sleeping at least 11 hours straight through the night!  This has been going on for about 3 weeks now so I really hope it's here to stay & she's not about to make another change.

- Yesterday Shaylin sat down to her little dollhouse & played with it for a good 15 minutes all by herself.  She kept talking the whole time & putting all the furniture on the 2nd floor of the house.  It was so precious!
