13 months

Oh sweet little nugget, momma cannot believe you are 13 months old...how in the world did I become a momma to a toddler so fast!! Every day is such a joy even on your fussy days, independent moments, I love you more and more.....I never knew that being a mom could be this incredible of a blessing. I know I say it over and over but I feel so lucky and so undeserving...

Your sweet independence is in full swing...you prefer to feed yourself, absolutely love to climb up into your rocking chair and big girl table, love to ride around endlessly on your "car"-I told daddy I need a bike to keep up...

Your new favorite phrase is "Der it tis" probably because the only way I can keep you from doing 100 flips while getting you dressed is to play the game of "Where's Isabella's hand? Where's Isabella's foot? There it is!!!!" Oh you are such a joy...you are a busy Izzy as we like to call you....

You don't sit still often so I covet those sweet moments where you crawl up in my lap or rest your head on my shoulder even if its just for a second..

You officially weaned your early morning feeding...mommy secretly misses those early morning snuggles before work but know that the sleep is so good for you now. It only took one day for me to not respond at 4:30 am and you quit waking up....weaning from breastfeeding was SO much harder on both of us than I expected...you still will nurse on occasion usually when you are really sleepy or want some cuddles...you fuss and pull my shirt down this is happening less and less frequently:(

You are officially weaned to the sippy cup, a few days after turning a year old you decided the sippy cup wasn't so bad and have loved it ever since...good bye baby bottles:(

You love....playing chase....you walk or ride away from me and as soon as I catch you oh the giggles....daddy and I love this....you still absolutely love your lovey from Miss Ashley...you grab it first thing in your crib, you've grown fond of your paci so we have to leave it in your crib, I should wean this but momma isn't ready to let go of every baby thing yet! Looking out the window in the car, smiling and waving at people at the store, getting attention, your doggies, yogurt, shoes....you take them off and want me to put them back on....

You dislike...having to be still to get dressed, certain foods...everyday is different one day you love beans the next day you want nothing to do with them....the pickiness has begun....eek
Your schedule is relatively the same

8:30-rise and shine, sippy cup + food
11:30-milk + food
2:30-snack time
5-7pm nap
7:00-milk + food
7:30-bathtime/bedtime routine

You are growing up way to fast...as you can tell by our month pictures they are almost impossible these days..you just wanted to throw the chalkboard on the floor and say "uh oh"

Psalm 127:3-5 Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.  Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth.  Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.
