She is growing and changing so much these days! Seemingly becoming more and more of the big sister she will be in just a few short months!
She now has 14 teeth! She cut four more teeth this month, bottom molars and bottom
This month she has really started talking. She will try to repeat almost anything we ask her to and most of the time it ends up sounding a lot like the word she was aiming for!
Her vocabulary includes:
She can point to her hair, eyes, nose, mouth, ears, belly, knees, and feet and say most of those words! If you ask her what's in mama's belly she will say "Baby!" (Actually she now think everyone has a baby in their belly!) She knows the sounds for a bird, sheep and horse so far along with her panting if you ask what a doggie does. She uses please in context and uses it often! She thinks it gets her whatever she wants! ;)
If you ask her what a surprised baby does, she opens her mouth in shock! She can also show you what sleepy baby does!
She has really enjoyed having Chloe here to play with this week. We are hoping it will help her to adjust to sharing my attention and learning to interact with other children before the baby gets here. She's done really well with sharing her toys.
Overall she continues to be our happy, easygoing girl, but her temper and impatience have shown themselves a bit lately. We are working on that!
She is taking one really good nap each afternoon which usually lasts around an hour and a half to two hours, but she is still waking up once at night.
As for eating, we are finding more foods that seem to be here favorites so we haven't had as much of an issue with the pickiness. Every morning, she goes right to the cabinet where I keep the pancake mix to tell me she wants her daily pancake! She still loves yogurt, raisins and graham crackers. For lunch, she loves chicken noodle soup or any soup for that matter or spaghetti. At dinner time, her favorite vegetables are definitely peas and corn!
We are still working on getting her to drink enough from her sippy cup. Though she is still nursing, my supply has dropped significantly due to the pregnancy and she isn't getting much milk. We've had some terrible constipation issues as a result of her lack of hydration, but over the last week we're up to two sippy cups of water/juice a day which is a huge improvement.
I kept the list going this month of some of the cute things our Lovey Lou has done, but it's not quite as lengthy as in months past due to all the craziness of traveling and spending time with family.
Londyn Grace learned how to "draw" on her chalkboard wall this month! Her sweet little masterpieces are so precious! She still loves to ride in her Cozy Coupe though the little circle we make around the living room and dining room doesn't provide for very long rides! We are so looking forward to getting outside once all of the snow melts! She still isn't a fan of tv, but will watch Bible songs on youtube. Her favorite is still This Little Light of Mine. She loves to watch Daddy coach the Upward basketball league at church.
The past month was another wonderful one and we praise God for all the sweet moments we were blessed to share with our Londyn girl!
