Happy 13 Months Mia Grace

Wow, it's already been an entire month since you turned one Mia, I can hardly believe. Time is flying by and your little personality is getting more and more adorable/ornery/funny/mischevious each and every day.

What are you up to these days...
-Everytime I post during a "non well child check-up time" ;) I will not have an exact weight on you, but when you were weighed at your DMSA scan on 2/8, fully clothed you were 23 lbs, 1 oz. So my guesstimate is right around 23 lbs, give or take.

-You get where you need to be, when you want to be there, and TYPICALLY that method of travel is still crawling. You can walk, you can take multiple steps in a row, but you prefer to crawl. You LOVE climbing on things, especially your brothers little chair and climb up the steps (with Mommy or Daddy standing behind you, of course! :)

-You are still in size 4 diapers.

-You are primarily in 12-18 month clothing, but now more towards the 18 month end.

-You continue to spend your days at Linnie's while Mommy and Daddy are working. You are Linnie's baby and she loves you to pieces. She misses you SO much over the weekend when you aren't there. Mommy and Daddy are SO lucky to have someone that takes such awesome care of you! Linnie has taken a new baby in, Mackenzie (Mommy works with her mommy) and you love the baby! :) You get a little rough with her at times, but when we say, "Mia, be nice!" you'll lean down and give her a hug! :)

-We had your physical therapy evalution on 2/15 and you've done SO amazingly well, that you are done! :) No more physical therapy for you, little lady! :) Mommy and Daddy are so proud!

-You have REALLY changed your sleeping patterns...as in, you've decided that you like waking up multiple times throughout the night! :( You seem to be pretty miserable when you do, so I'm almost certain you are teething. I HOPE that is the issue! :) And I HOPE it's resolved soon! :)

-Speaking of teething...you still only have TWO teeth! Mommy has to go to the dentist on March 2nd so I'm going to ask my dentist at what point should I be concerned! I know all kids get teeth at different ages but really? ONLY two teeth at 13 months old???

-You say SO many words that sound like actual words, but I'm not sure :) You "talk" constantly and are literally having conversations with anyone and everyone, but we just don't understand you, YET! :) Of course you continue with the usual, "Mama", "Dada", "Cup", "Baba" (even though you don't take one anymore :)), etc.

-You can point to your ear, teeth and belly when asked, "Where is your ...... Mia?" It's adorable!

-You were SO easy to transition off the bottle and formula. You now drink whole milk, from a sippy cup. You love your milk, but your favorite is water! You are just like your brother...you both LOVE water! :)

-You still eat baby food, Stage 3, along with "real" food. I feel most comfortable giving you baby food since you only have two teeth (both of them on the bottom, front). You love anything and everything we've given you so far (baby food and real food). Your pediatrician said that's fine. It's obvious you don't have any sort of aversion to real food (and actually prefer it), but Mommy still throws in baby fruit and baby veggies for you to eat.

-In regards to your kidney “issues”…there isn't any! :) Your DMSA scan came back completely normal. Both of your kidneys are functioning equally! They still want to monitor the size discrepancy so we will go back for a kidney ultrasound in 6 months to check on that. But other then that, all is well! :) Thank God!

-You are HILARIOUS! Seriously! You crack mommy up with your little personality. And I love it because you know you are funny, so you act on it to get people to laugh! :)

-You love giving "Awwws" especially to your brother. But really, you'll give "awwws" to anything, even a water bottle! :)

You are going to keep Mommy and Daddy on their toes, that's for sure! :) We love you SO much! Happy 13 months sweet girl! :)

And for good measure...
(a pic that has nothing to do with Mia ;), but I just realized I never posted the beautiful flowers my hubby got me for V-day. They are more beautiful today then Monday! This is earlier today :))
