Lucy 12 months

Yesterday our Lucy Joy turned 12 months old! Hard to believe that one whole year has gone by since she came out at a tiny (to us) 7lbs 6oz, looking like the sweetest most feminine version of her big brother. Lucy's life started out so blissfully. I remember thinking to myself, when is the sh*t going to hit the fan? And it never did. She slept beautifully, ate like a champ, and was smiley, happy, and content. She is the perfect addition to our family and I can't imagine life without our spunky girl. She has become more and more cuddly the older she gets and she is quite the talker. I cannot wait for each month to come, watching her grow into her personality. She may be small but she sure is mighty! You can see her birthday bluebonnet pictures here and her birthday party post here. Here is Lucy's 12 month update.

It's my birthday I can cry if it I want to.... I literally scooped her out of her crib from her nap and took these.

  • 19lbs 3oz (taken at pedi 2 weeks ago for a sick visit, will update after her well check next week).
  • First ear infection. Lucy was tugging at her ear and miserable following a bad/long cold so I took her in and she had a single ear infection. 3 days later she was even more miserable and after 3 hours of non stop crying, I took her back in. Her original Amoxicillin prescription wasn't working and she had a double ear infection. She was put on Augmentin and it helped so quickly. I am very thankful we got to almost a year without an ear infection. 
  • Sleeps 7p-7a with 2 naps a day, 8:30a and 1:30p. Both around 1.5-2 hours in length. She is such a good sleeper and loves her crib and loveys. She has two baby dolls in there and will play for a half hour before standing up in her crib.
  • Wears mostly 12 month clothes, some 9 month. She is finally fitting into a size 2 shoe, big milestone for her microscopic feet. 
  • Cloth diapers during the day, size 3 disposable at night.
  • She isn't walking yet but she is getting brave. She loves standing up and cruising and even standing on her own for a few seconds. She zooms around pushing her shopping cart or baby stroller and loves to walk holding our hands. Ford didn't walk until 12.5 months but I think Lucy will be later. 
  • She climbs on everything, she is fearless! Couches, pillows, stairs. She is fast!
  • She is a pretty picky eater when it comes to trying new things but the food she likes, she eats a lot of. Loves bananas, yogurt, pouches, quesadillas, cheese sticks, PB&J, all carbs, egg casserole. She loved her birthday cupcake... not a surprise.
  • We were officially done nursing the week before her birthday and she hasn't looked back! At 11 months I cut down to a morning and before bed nurse and then 2 weeks later cut the bedtime feed. She was fussy the first day we didn't nurse in the morning but then moved on. She drinks about 16-20oz of whole milk a day. 
  • She is a total copy cat! If you laugh, she fake laughs. She fake coughs too. She learned how to blow on food watching us and will mock Jon as he sips his coffee. 
  • She loves her baby dolls, especially her soft Stella baby she got for her birthday that Ford and Embry named Cici. She rocks them and says "ahhh" and feeds them bottles. 
  • She points at everything! It is adorable and she acts like she is trying to tell you the most interesting thing ever.
  • She is quite chatty this month, lots of babble. She says mama, dada, more, and occasionally words we tell her to say "NANA" for banana, etc. Ernie thinks he is the king of our house and barks at every car that drives by so I pretty much say "STOP" 100 times a day. Well now Lucy looks sternly and says "STA!!!!". 
  • If you tell her no... she looks at you and says "na naaaaa"
  • She has such a sassy personality. She is sweet and cuddly but very opinionated. We call her Miss Offended Lady because if you wipe her nose or set her down, she is soooo offended.
  • She and Ford sit next to each other in the car and she is a little toot most of the time and puts her feet in his face and grabs him. They are pretty darn cute together and get each other going too. The best! She moved into her rear facing Diono Radian this month and is much happier in it. 
  • Working on blowing kisses, so sweet
  • She loves going on walks and is super chill in the stroller.
  • Loves swinging at the park and digging in the sand or dirt. 
  • She loves crawling through our play tunnel and going inside the tents and forts Jon and Ford build.
  • Loves the play kitchen upstairs and it keeps her very occupied! She can be needy at times but for the most part she is such a good little independent player. I love that I can sit in our family room and watch the kiddos play together quietly in the downstairs playroom.
  • She loves the cozy coupe and thinks she is such a big girl sitting in it!
  • She knows a few body parts... her hair, eyes, and toes. 
  • She tries to put up 1 finger when you say "How old are you".
