16 Months Old

Felicity turned 16 months old a few days ago.

She has rapidly transformed from a baby to a toddler. She runs. She climbs. She jumps (well.. off of things.. especially if her brother did it first). We had her conference at daycare to begin the process of moving her from the baby room to the Toddler room. She has been making long visits to the toddler room this week and seems to be enjoying it quite a bit. Today she was devestated at drop off when she had to go to the baby room.

She understands most of what she say, but seems to have little urge to try to say things herself. I am waiting for a speech explosion. I think Darth Vader will be part of this speech explosion.

She started sleeping through the night, all on her own, without any prompting or effort by me, about two weeks ago, which is fantastic. This also means we are moving slowly towards weaning. She only breastfeeds at bedtime, and now DH has started to rotate with me, so she is breastfeeding once every other day.

Her favorite things include reading, pretending to read, eating (anything and everything... so much its hard to believe sometimes), sitting on benches, walking on couches, looking out windows, seeing dogs, pointing at things and having us say what they are, crayons and markers, and holding onto clothes.

She is so fun to be around, and so adorable.
