12 Month Check Stats

Sora had her 12 mo. well visit to the doctor earlier today. She is a tiny kiddo, and according to the doctor is given the a-okay to eat any and almost all things super fatty. I wish my doctor would tell me that! She weighed in at 18 lbs 13.8 oz (10th percentile) and is 28.75" tall (50th percentile). She is starting to fall down on the weight chart the doctor uses (she was 50% at her 6 mo and 25% at her 9 mo), but there are a lot of different charts out there, so after I looked one up that the World Health Organization uses that is just for breastfed babies, I felt a little better (on their chart, she is much closer to 40%).

The past month has brought us full on into toddler-hood. She can now:
  • walk without assistance across rooms, pivot and turn without falling down.
  • She likes to play games and can pull the blanket if you try to play hide and seek.
  • She likes to eat a huge variety of food and loves bread.
  • She thinks it's fun to see food drop on the floor and doesn't think she needs to chew or swallow before adding more food to her mouth.
  • She likes to put things inside of containers so that she can then take them right back out.
  • She just started turning pages in books, but is too impatient to wait for you to read them first.
  • She likes to take toys from other kids (they make them look like so much fun!), but we're keeping an eye on this one.
  • She does things to see how people around her will react and is a little scientist in the making with all of her experiments with gravity and projectiles.
  • She is finally in her next car seat (although she doesn't really need to be), but we are still using the infant car seat occasionally.
  • She's not an amazing sleeper yet, but is going to bed more consistently at 7:45-8:00.
  • She is a ton of fun and loves to laugh and smile and babble and say "mamamamama" and "dadadadada", but we aren't sure she knows what they mean quite yet. Now that she's mastered walking, we're hoping she will turn her attention to communication!
