Our girl is ONE! We aren't huge birthday people, so nothing Pinterest worthy here. ;) We kept thing simple with cake for breakfast and a few birthday toys. Mallory typically prefers savory over sweet foods but certainly had a ball with her cake! She didn't eat much but it was so fun watching her play in it. Schatzi and LT were grateful for the mess.
At her one year check up Mallory weighed in at 22 pounds and measured 29 inches tall. Not much weight gain, but her doctor gave her rolls a little pinch and said she is doing juuuuussst fine. ;) Mally still only has 6 teeth but is definitely working on a molar or two...
Mal still isn't walking but her confidence is growing by the day! (Her mom and dad are in no hurry for her to meet this milestone...) She loves standing, using her walker and walking along furniture, but the power crawl is still her go to. In the clothing department not much has changed since last month. Still in size 4 diapers and 12-18 month clothing.
Major changes this month in the sleep and eating department. Not only is she sleeping in her own bed AND napping, but she is no longer breastfeeding! (I think i've finally stopped crying over the no breast feeding part.) "Real" food is now her primary source of nutrition and she is quite pleased with that. We have enough of a freezer stash for her to continue having at least a bottle or two of breast milk for the next month or so. I'm working on writing up our co-sleeping to crib experience soon!
Mallory has made great strides in the vocabulary department lately! She now says : Mama, Dada, Nana, "og"- dog, yes, this, that, "ook" (either book or look, we'll get back to you on that) shakes her head no, waves hello and bye-bye, and points at anything she wants! Still sounds like she is speaking a foreign language when she is babbling and frequently looks at us like we are crazy for not understanding her. Who knew that look started so young?!
We love you Mallory Susan!
