Just a few things I want to remember about Claire at this
fun age (14 1/2 months)...
is absolutely her favorite word. Although she says it like "Doeg." Precious. And most any creature is a dog
. She also says Dada
and we've heard Duck
a few times now. Her daycare teacher says she can say Ball
but we haven't heard that. She'll occasionally bust out with a Mama
, but usually only when she's upset that I took something away or walked away. Claire also tries to repeat Thank You
when we say it first, but I think only we can understand that one.
...Speaking of school...it took a few weeks for Claire to get used to her new school, but she is loving it now and so are we. She walks in each day like she owns the place! And I think she might...her teacher seems to love her as much as we do!
...Claire is loving her Loveys these days! Thankfully, she doesn't seem to be attached to any one in particular - she just likes to drag whichever one is nearest (or both of them) around with her and sleeps with one every night. I think I am going to order an extra of my favorite just to have on hand - we already lost one at Kohl's when visiting Grandma and Grandpa.
Claire has stayed with Grandma and Grandpa twice this year already, most recently while we went on a cruise for a week. It took her a few days to adjust, but I am100% certain that she missed them when we got her back. In particular, she bonded very well with Grandpa. They loved playing piano together.
...Claire likes to brush her hair and play with her toothbrush. She's let me "brush" her teeth, but mostly she just plays with it.
...Reading is So. Much. Fun. Especially the same books over. and. over. again. I could recite Llama Llama Red Pajama
in my sleep. Board books are our favorite. We could use a few new ones...and a bookshelf to store them on.
|I could just eat that little belly up. |
...Baby girl weighed 20.5 lbs at her appointment last week. She eats, but she's still so petite. She wears 12 month jammies and 9 or 12 month outfits. I'm not buying any more 9 months, but the 12's are too big still. She definitely grows out of the pants (length) first.
