So you all know by now that Avery is 12months old!
She is doing really well eating! New foods for the past month include watermelon, raviolis, toast with jelly, pineapple, cucumber, cherries, and roast beef. I have to say that she loves her fruits and veggies! We've tried giving her some more of her birthday cake and she'll take 1-2 bites and then could care less. But bring out a bowl of peaches or pears or peas and the girl is in hog heaven! It's so funny!
She is still nursing twice a day as of now-first thing in the morning and at bedtime. She did very well dropping her sessions at her naptimes and is now drinking breastmilk from her sippy cup at lunch and dinner. I'm sure we'll get the OK to start whole milk at her doctor's appt next week, but we still have quite a stash of frozen breastmilk that we'll use up first and through the transition.
She's sleeping great at night-anywhere from 10-12 hours without waking up. She might wake up and fuss a minute but goes right back to sleep which is great! She's still napping twice a day, but that's been not so great lately. I have a feeling she's getting ready to drop a nap. Sometimes she does 2 naps fine. Some days she does 1 good nap and 1 very short nap (or no nap at all!). I've tried putting her down for only 1 nap a few times, but she doesn't seem to sleep very long. I must not be timing it right or something. We'll see what happens with that!
She's up to 6 teeth now-4 on top and 2 on the bottom! She's trying to imitate us a lot now-she tries saying "b" sounds (bird, balloon, ball), she says "ni ni" for "nite nite", she knows "ma ma" and "da da" now! She's still standing a lot but hasn't really tried walking yet. We got her a push toy for her birthday and she'll walk behind it, but that's about it.
Alright, on to the official pics! She was very uncooperative this time so I didn't get many good ones.
Gotta love the first one-trying to climb off the chair! Hangin' out:
