Georgia is Twelve Months Old!

Georgia-you are 1 year old!!!
Since you are a big one year old now, I changed it up and let you sit in your own chair. This is our last monthly picture. Say it isn't so! Where did my baby go? (Also I should add you had just woke up from a nap so serious bedhead going on!)

So what are you up to at a year??
  • I'm guessing you weigh 19-20 pounds. When we took you in for your 2nd dose of the flu shot a couple weeks ago you were right at the 19 pound mark. Your 12 month check-up is next week and you have already figured out the doctor's office and what they do to you there so that should be fun. :)
  • You wear 9 month and 12 month clothing, you are in size 3 diapers, and you wear a size 2 shoe.
  • You are learning and saying new words every week. This month you added "bobble" (bottle), "Ma (grandma)", "Na Na" (aunt shanna), and "kids" to your vocabulary.
  • We have completely transitioned you from breastmilk to whole milk. You have transitioned well with great acceptance but you have had some constipation issues so we are increasing your fruit and juice intake and putting dark karo syrup in your bottles per Ped's order. This is helping and we hope it will do the trick.

  • You are very hard to get a picture of right now. Either the pictures are blurry from movement, you aren't looking, or a multitude of other errors.
  • You still majorly love your bottle! I rock you to sleep every night and give you a bottle. I love this bonding time with you and neither of us are ready to give it up yet.
  • You eat three meals a day at the table with the rest of the family. You love to feed yourself and then when you are full you feed what's left to Owen :)
  • You are walking like a boss now! Just last night (Halloween) you were pivoting around and nearly ran in a full circle! You amaze us every day with your new talents.
  • Everywhere we go people stop us to compliment you! They think you are a doll and you usually give them a grin or crinkle your nose at them which makes me happy! I hope you will be a warm and kind person that socializes well and likes being around people.
  • Normal bedtime is 9pm and you are normally still asleep when daddy takes you to one of your grandmothers at 7:20am but you usually wake up at that point. On good days you take two naps which are each 1-1 1/2 hours long.
  • Your significant daily events:
October 4th: first taste of hamburger and fries-LOVE
October 6th: first steps!!!!!!
October 10th: first trip to the pumpkin patch
October 18th: first wedding (out of the womb-you appeared in Uncle Jake and Aunt Shanna's wedding at 38 weeks gestation), you were the flower girl in Aunt Paigey and Uncle Eric's wedding!
October 21st: said "Ma"
October 22nd: said "Na Na", started drinkin prune juice for constipation, and took your last breastmilk bottle (such irony)
October 26th: first birthday party!!
October 29th: said "kids" at AKK
October 31st: 2nd Halloween and found two more teeth (lateral incisors, lower teeth)
  • You are cutting two teeth right now which means you have 7 teeth total. Your teeth woke you up hurting last night so I gave you a teething tablet and you had instant relief and went right back to sleep. Teething has been easy for you relatively speaking. You have never drooled at all and you tolerate the pain well. We usually don't even know you have teeth coming in until we can see them.
  • I've said it before and I'll say it again-you are dramatic! You are quick to anger but also quick to recover and be smiling again. You HATE the "n-o" word and your feelings get so hurt when someone says it to you. You like things on your time and agenda.
  • You will not stay in the church nursery and are not comfortable with strangers right now. Everything is a season and this will pass I know.
    Happy 12 months/1 year of age Georgia Grace! I'm not sure how we got here so quickly but I have loved every second of the ride. You are the apple of our eye, the icing on the cake, the cherry on top, and our sunshine on a cloudy day.

We love you sweet child of mine!
