Olivia - 12 Months


Height: 29 inches (30%)
Weight: 18.5 pounds (30%)

Sleep: She is still sleeping 7-7ish, with two naps a day. 

Eating: She loves dairy: milk, yogurt, cheese. We still struggle with vegetables, but homegirl will rock a spinach smoothie. And the doctor just gave her the go-ahead for cow milk. Once we finish the formula in the cabinet, we will start with that. Much easier!

Milestones: She is walking all over the place these days! She has figured out how to go down the stairs. She learned to use a straw. And she had her first cake pop. Big month for Olivia!

Clothes / Diapers: I think its time to finish our package of 3s and move up to 4s in diapers. Still true to size on her clothes. I think she'll live in capris though. If they fit in length, they are too big in the waist. Any tips on pants for skinny minis?

Best Moment of the Month: Capturing this video. Anytime she's laughing and I pull out a phone or camera, she stops immediately to snatch it from our hand. I play this almost every day. Love her giggle.


Parent of the Month Award: Besides the bumps and bruises from learning to walk, the cake pop that fell on the ground that I picked right back up to avoid the meltdown, and the fact that I bought her a dog toy because it crinkled and I thought she'd love it (she didn't), this goes to Dan. I told him the other day "I was cleaning up the kitchen and she went for the dog food, and I wasn't fast enough - so she put a piece in her mouth. Yuck." His reply? "Don't worry. It's not the first one she's eaten." Great..

Favorites: The PBK anywhere chair that my parents got her is a favorite. She loves climbing it, sitting in it, drinking her milk in it, etc. etc. She loves throwing food off her high chair for Da (Koda). Other than that, she loves being outside. She stands by the door slapping it and yelling. She's already learned too many things from the dog. 

Dan and I have a few favorites. Her pack and play is the best for sleeping at friend's houses, taking with us for travel, etc. - and its so easy to open and close. Her snack trap is perfect for giving her some cheerios with a smaller chance of her dumping it on the floor for Koda. Grape scented Boogie Wipes are the ONLY way to wipe her nose. LifeSaver. And the youtube video of Taylor Swift's Shake It Off or Meghan Trainor's All About That Bass are always hits.

  1. We practically had a party when we got the ok to switch from formula to whole milk. Much easier and much much cheaper!

  4. What is the attraction between babies and pet food?? I feel like I'm always keeping an eye on the cat food bowl. I'm embarrassed to admit that Olive has eat some so I'm in the same boat as you. Let's hope it's just a phase that both of our girls outgrow. I miss the days of two naps :)

    1. Haha yeah - it was definitely to make me feel better as a parent. Technically it worked .. but he gets a side eye for it 'not being the first time.'
