Dear Sprout-You are 13 months

Hello my sweet baby girl. My how precious and adventurous you are at this age. You are a very curious toddler, and you like to touch and grab anything you can get your little hands on. With you being 32 inches tall, there are a lot of things within your reach.

You are getting smarter by the day, you understand things we tell you, even though you don't talk very much. You are starting to speak in phrases, instead of individual words. When someone is eating, you will say, "Is it good?" And you say to your sister, "Hi Sissy." And you seem to be able to mimic other phrases we say.You sure do talk a lot in your own language though. You even ask questions and you add inflections in your voice like you are telling us a lot of little stories. I wish I could be in your little mind, I'd love to hear all the wonderful things you think you are telling us. I am sure it would be very interesting.

You definitely know what things mean. If I ask you if you want a banana, you begin to whine and run to your high chair. You like to whine a lot for things you want You are able to sign, and even talk some words, but your preferred method is still whining. You love your milk, that is for sure. You are on sippy cups now and whole milk. You still get 1-2 bottles of formula a day, for the days you don't eat much solids. You still have a slight issue with eating, but are getting much better.

You are still in size 3 diapers, and it looks like you may still be for a while longer. You are 32 inches tall and 22lbs. Tall and thin. You can wear all different sizes of clothes, but mainly I have you in between 9-18 month. Really depends on the maker, in fact, you still fit your gap 0-3 month outfit perfectly. So it all really depends. 

You get very shy when we put on the Tom the cat app, you put your head down and smile sheepishly. Sometimes you get brave enough to touch it, but the majority of the time you are bashful. It is the cutest thing. You are very loving and cuddly. I hope you never outgrow that stage.

You love to dance. You dance every time you hear music. You are like your sister in that aspect, and mommy too. Team Umizoomi has their celebration song that you like to "shake like crazy" to. You get so excited and happy and start shaking. Your eyes light up even when we say the beginnings, "2, 4, 6, 8." You also love to dance to Yo Gabba Gabba.

Flipping is your new thing as well. You like to stand on your head, but here lately you started to roll. Daddy likes to flip you, I think that is what helped you with the confidence to do it yourself.

You are getting in 4 more teeth. Your front teeth, one side bottom tooth and your side front tooth. You went from 2 to 6 in a very short time. 

Here are a couple pictures of you at 13 months old.
