Preslee is 13 Months Old

So 13 months old is always pretty odd to write about.  It's like everything builds up to 1 and then the next big number is 18 months old.  Thirteen months is like the first post of an odd line up until 18 months old.  But I'm still so excited to track my babies month to month the first few years.  So much happens within a month!  I can't believe that not only has one come and gone, but it's already a whole month after ONE.

Sweet Girl,

- You have really taken off this month!  Forget that walking with caution... you are trying to figure out how to run and keep up with your sisters.
- You got to go on a "walk" with your Daddy & big sisters last week.  You went out and walked up and down the side walk with everyone.  You thought you were so big!
- You are still breastfeeding five times a day.  For a few days you seemed you might want to ween yourself, but then you decided not to.  {Thanks for helping Mommy keep her milk in for our next baby!}
- Speaking of milk, we've rotated in some organic whole milk with a little Ovaltine to sweeten it up so you'll drink it.  You really like it!
- We did ween you from your pacifier right after you turned one.  You have done great!  We just transitioned you from that to sleeping with a little stuffed bunny.
- You still have 4 top teeth and 2 bottom.
- You are wearing 12 month clothes, and size 4 & 5 shoes depending on the shoe.
- As you eat your solids we have given you a spoon or fork for you to "try" to feed yourself.  You look so determined to try to do it all on your own like your sisters.  It's so sweet!
-You have really been playing with baby dolls like your sisters lately.  You will grab a baby and walk around holding it, or pushing a stroller.  It's the cutest thing ever!
- You understand the word, "no," but don't like to adhere to it's meaning.  You are stubborn and have a mind of your own.
- You are so vocal.  You really let us know with your vocal cords what you like & dislike.
- You take two naps a day.  One typically around an hour to an hour and a half, and one closer to two hours. You sleep great all night still!
- You try to grab things off the table or counter now.  Especially if someone else is eating something and you don't have any.... we all have to watch out or you'll reach and try to grab it!

Sweet Preslee Ray, I can't believe how big you are getting so fast.  You seem so interested in trying to keep up with you sisters and yet at the same time you are still my little baby who wants me to hold her.  My heart fills with joy when I think of you and how much fun you are.  You like to be right in the middle of everything and participate with whatever is going on.  You are most certainly our social butterfly!  You are so silly and I have loved watching your little personality start develop.  Your smile still lights up a room!  I love you so much and I'm so thankful that I get to be your Mommy.
