12 months

February 24, 2015 No Comments

These are technically a couple of weeks late, but we did haven’t our well check a couple weeks after Kal’s birthday. I am also still waiting for his 1 year pics, but as soon as I have them, you know you will see them! Kal at 12 months….

Size: 30.5inches tall and 22 lbs. Kallen is wearing mostly 12-18 month clothes. A few of the bigger 12 month outfits still fit, but are starting to get short. He wears size 4 shoes and we are about to make the move up to size 4 diapers (or maybe cloth, but that’s a post for another day). He is constantly pulling his socks off, so we usually only put them on if we are going out. He is not a huge fan of hats, but will tolerate them when we are outside. Food: Kal really isn’t picky when it comes to eating. He will try anything and likes, almost everything. For breakfast he usually has oatmeal, scrambled eggs, or pancakes with some fruit. For Lunch he will eat leftovers from the night before, grilled cheese, mac and cheese, chicken fingers, or a PB&J. For Dinner he eats whatever we are eating, if he is being picky and doesn’t like what we are eating, he will have a PB&J or Grilled Cheese. We are still breastfeeding and he nurses 3 or 4 times a day, usually when he wakes up, with both naps, and at bed time. Words/Developmental: Mama, Dada, Whats that?, Eye, Bless You, Cheese, Bite, and sometimes Thank You. He babbles in his own little language all day long. He started walking the last week of January and is now into everything! He is starting to recognize people and can “find” someone if you ask him to. Chris gave him his first haircut this month, and it was like he instantly turned into a big boy. We just loaded his high chair tray with goldfish and he sat surprisingly still.

We have a pretty solid bedtime routine (bath, brush teeth,read book, give kisses, nurse, sing songs, lay down) He either nurses to sleep or puts himself to sleep after we sing. He finally started sleeping 7 hour stretches this month, and it has been fabulous! He is also developing quite the personality and loves to make us laugh by fake laughing, pulling a cheeser face, playing peek a boo, or repeating anything that we may have laughed at. He loves playing with daddy and getting tossed up in the air or riding on Chris’s shoulders.

Favorites: TV Remotes, Leo (our dog), Opening/Closing Doors, Putting things in and taking things out of drawers and boxes, Fantasia (only movie he sat for more than 15 minutes),  and Dancing to music . I cannot believe that my baby is ONE! It seems like over night he has turned into a toddler. He is learning SO much everyday and it is so fun to watch him grow! A look back at his year…

  • When I picked "Be Brave" as my word for this year, I didn't realize I was asking the universe for an actual challenge. (And based on what I've gathered from many friends, I wasn't alone)  But, as the year comes to a close, I feel like I met my goal. And while there were some wonderful moments of this year, like starting a new job, growing my breastfeeding support group, and becoming an aunty twice more. But my anxiety was worse than it's ever been (admitting that isn't fun) and watching my mother in law battle brain cancer and Grandpa fight through a massive heart attack, has been hard. Needless to say, I'm ready for a new start with these little humans and their daddy.  See ya later 2018 👋

2019, please be kind to us 🙏

  • My top 9 of 2018 was an honest look at Motherhood. This was the year I found my voice, took opportunities outside of my comfort zone, and truly met my goal of being brave. I'm so glad and grateful you are all following along. Excited to see what 2019 has in store. Happy New Year!

  • I have been pretty open about my struggles with anxiety and depression. It's not fun or easy, and I often wish it wasn't part of my story, but it is. And through sharing, I can only hope that even one of you feels less alone. If you need a little extra support, I share daily affirmations in my stories every morning, I hope you'll follow along. 
Here's to today being a good day, even in it's imperfections ❤️ #musingsonmotherhood #thisismotherhood #this_is_postpartum #dailyaffirmations
  • Date night with my favorite guy in my favorite booties. These seriously go with any outfit and they are so comfy! 
What's your favorite date night activity?

  • Back to reality today and totally experiencing a holiday "hangover" We will be cleaning out and choosing toys and clothes to donate, since the kids got new stuff for Christmas. It's important to me that my kids be involved in this process, as it is their stuff and I want them to learn the value of service. Not taking our decorations down yet, I'm not ready to let the twinkle lights go ✨✨ #musingsonmotherhood #lighttheworld
  • Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. May your heart and home be full of love ❤️🎄
