Shortly after her first birthday, I returned to work full time, which meant going to the day home five days a week for Amelia. Before I returned, she did three half days at the day home to ensure it was a good fit. She did well there, but did cry when I dropped her off and then was very clingy when we go home. As the weeks have gone by, she has gone from crying to frowning to smiling when we drop her off in the morning. Makes us sad, but also glad that she is doing well there and seems to be happy.
We haven't had her weighed since her 12 month appointment, but I am guessing she is in the 21.5-23lb range. Girl loves to eat! She currently loves: banana muffins, bananas, sweet potato, cheese, yogurt. She gets a larger variety of stuff at the day home as well. She definitely does not like meat. She gets 3-4 bottles per day ranging from 120-180mLs. Most of that is milk with a bit of formula. We are still struggling to get her to drink from a sippy cup (either soft top or straw), so she may be drinking from bottles forever ;)
She isn't walking, but can easily move around the ottoman or couch. She will stand up on her own and take one or two steps and then fall down. She doesn't seem in a rush to walk on her own and we aren't pushing her either. It will come :)
She goes to bed around 7-7:15pm and gets up between 6-6:45am. Her naps have been all over the place, but she has been having two still at the dayhome. They range from 40-90 minutes in length.
She loves bath time, putting things into boxes or containers and taking them back out, her play kitchen she got from her birthday and when you pretend to chase her while she is crawling. She also loves to play with the books in her room.
She has only gotten one more tooth in the last two months (it came in around the beginning of March). That brings her total for teeth to 7. Her hair is still growing like crazy and we almost need to cut it. She currently has her first bad cold - lots of boogers and a cough. Luckily she is still a pretty happy girl!
We love you Amelia!
