Madelyn: 14 Months


MJ, you are 14 months!  Getting so big sweet girl!

-You are jabbering non-stop.  Still only saying "mama", "dada" and "nana", but LOVE talking to yourself.  Most of the time it's when you're getting sleepy and winding down for bed.

-Wearing size 4 diaper.  We have started putting you in an overnight diaper when you sleep at night because you sleep soo long and drink a lot of water at dinner time.

-Wearing size 12-18 clothes and PJ's.

-Eating lots and lots of food.  You'll eat whatever we put in front of you.  Some of it you like more than others, but you at least try them all (or mommy makes you try them all =).  Your favorites are still fruit-grapes, bananas, strawberries, blueberries along with sweet potato fries, chicken, spaghetti and meatballs, pizza, peas, eggs, sandwiches, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, olives, avacado, cheese (tilamook =) and the list goes on.  You tried a new food this past weekend...salsa...and loved it!  You fit right in with mommy and daddy!

-You go to sleep between 6:30pm-7:30pm each night and sleep until about 7:30am.  If you wake up early, you play with your toys and wait for mom and/or dad to come get you.  Then you go open the doggies kennel to let them out.

-Still no walking, but you're learning to stand up on your own and cruise around.  You'll learn when you're good and ready.  Lots of crawling.  Daddy's been teaching you to crawl up the stairs.  You have fun with this.

-You're getting very interactive with your toys.  Talking and jabbering on to them.  You like to stack up blocks and toys on top of each other.  It's cute to watch.  You also stand up next to your toy box and pick out what you want to play with.

-You have 4 cups of whole milk a day, 3 solid meals and an afternoon snack.  Still only water; no juice.

-Still taking 2 naps-about an hour in the morning between 9:30am-10:30am and an hour and 1/2 to 2 hours in the afternoon-about 1:30pm-3:30pm.  It all depends on how active you've been during the day.

-You had lots of babysitters this month so mommy could have a little relaxing time and run errands!  You have lots of people who love you!  We can't blame them =)
