|13 months old!|
Felicity is 13 months old today! She's been pulling up to stand as much as she can, and she's started figuring out how to cruise a step or two. She crawls everywhere FAST and gets into everything. She loves to carry my stuff (like my wallet) as she crawls around the house. We have had to start shutting the stairs gate and various doors to prevent access because she wants to explore and dig through cabinets!
Felicity is a happy girl. Her smile lights up our life, and she loves to laugh. Her bouncy curls match her bubbly personality. She can say mama, dada, mimi, papa, baby... she calls her pacifier "baby" and has started going around saying "Abby" to random things. She can roar like a lion when she sees a picture, toy or real-life lion. She putters like a car or airplane when she gets ahold of one of Wilder's vehicle toys. Lately she's been carrying around his miniature Francesco Bernoulli (from Cars). I think it's her favorite.
She loves to read books. Even more than having us read to her, she likes to sit and read to herself. She loves books with textures, flaps and books about little kids (she calls them "baby"). She's also loving horses--which makes me happy, of course!
Felicity likes trying to put her shoes on, she likes her sunglasses, she's interested in jewelry and she likes carrying around my phone, keys, credit card...
She invades WIlder's space all the time, especially in the bathtub. But he likes playing with her most of the time. She'll hang on for dear life if she gets ahold of his toy, so sometimes there's a battle there, but he is so sweet with her. Every morning we come in his room and she'll crawl into his bed to jump on it like a trampoline. He's always so sweet, saying things like "Good morning felicity." I would be so annoyed to have another person wake me up that way, but he doesn't mind at all and often laughs at her silliness.
That's another thing--Felicity now climbs on the toddler trampoline and jumps. WHAT?? She's barely tall enough to reach the bar. She liked to use it to climb onto the couch, but she fell and nearly fell a few times so we moved it away. Fearless girl!
She's in size 3 shoes, size 12 month clothes. She eats a ton--meat and protein are still her favorite. She ate about 7 shrimp tonight with her dinner. It's crazy how much she can put away! Felicity tried brie on crackers this week and she's a fan. She has 8 hard-fought teeth now, and I feel like she's still teething. It really disrupts her sleep. Last week she didn't nap a single afternoon nap, and she's been waking up every night at least once for a couple of weeks. And this last week or so she's started waking up an hour early and STAYING awake. It's been rough times.
Halloween was fun! Wilder was the Very Hungry Caterpillar and Felicity was the Beautiful Butterfly. They're costumes were so cute and they both liked wearing them to the Trunk or Treat at church. Win all around!
Looking forward to Wilder's birthday next week and Thanksgiving! Here are a bunch of photos from today.
