Let's all soak in that title for this post..... TWELVE MONTHS OLD!!!!
MY BABY GIRL IS OFFICIALLY A TODDLER!!!!!
Ok, now that that's out of the way.... I feel like time has flown by since her 9 month update, and she's quite the amazing little girl.
First, I'll address food/bottles. Mya finally stopped baby cereal and baby food around 10 months old. It was a battle at first because she wanted it so much instead of table food, but now she wants anything anyone has at all times! I've started whole milk here and there to start the transition off formula, but it'll be a slow process like her siblings. My goal is always off formula completely by 13 months.
She still only has her two bottom teeth that were cut at 8 months old, but I can feel her top teeth trying to come in. She's been more cranky lately, filling her diaper frequently, and starting to sleep more. Part of that could be a growth spurt, but for now I'm saying new teeth!
She is a walker!! A couple weeks before she turned 11 months old, she started taking a step here and there. While it took a while, she made me chuckle by taking 11 steps on her 11 month birthday. Through out the day she took more and more steps, and while she stumbles still at times, she's getting better and better every day.
While Mya has her own "toys", she really likes playing in our playroom with her sisters and following them around from room to room. They all love her so much, and enjoy when she's around.
At Mya's 9 month check up she weighed 18.8lbs and was 27 inches long. Since then she's gained 2.6lbs and grew 1 1/2 inches.
In one full year Mya has gained 14lbs and 10 inches in height.
While you'll see Mya in reviews here and there, I'll post another update at 18 months!
