Mae is 15 months old

I can't believe how much Mae has grown and changed since she turned a year old

  • Mae's routine has changed a bit since her birthday. She is transitioning down to one nap/day. It's been TOUGH some days. She gets tired in the mornings, but if she naps, she won't go down in the afternoon and it's too long to stay up from 11-bedtime! So, now she's taking one nap and trying to get it to 1pm, but it's a slow transition. She's usually down around noon (we do an early lunch)

  • She sleeps about 1.5-2 hours for her nap and sleeps all night. She's usually down by 7 (earlier if she's ready, which she often is) and is up around 6:45 in the mornings. 
  • She still just has 2 teeth on the bottom and now has 2 on top. One on the front and one of the side ones. The other two are about to break through any day now. 
  • Mae weaned from nursing just before 14 months. It was a pretty easy transition. She loves her sippy cups of almond milk with meals. 

  • She's still a good eater, but showing a little bit of toddler picky-ness. She still loves her favorites....cheese, yogurt, bananas, grapes, strawberries, PB sandwiches, etc. She's funny about some things....she'll eat some things (green beans, meat, etc) if I'm holding her while fixing plates, but won't eat it off her plate. Silly girl. 

  • She's eating 3 meals and 3 snacks a day. 
  • She still babbles a lot, but has several words! Mama, 'dake' (Drake, the dog), no no!, 'hee-i-cah-uh' (helicopter), Dada, 'nack' (snack), thank you, hat ('at' while rubbing her head), nose, eyes, night night (nigh nigh) and probably some I can't remember.
  • She can identify her head, hair, toes, belly, nose, eyes, teeth, and tongue.
  • She knows several animal sounds too....sheep, horse, dog, cat, and if you ask her how a baby sounds, she'll say "whaaa whaaa". :)

  • She follows directions really well. I'm always surprised how much a toddler can understand when they can only speak a few words. She will follow 2 step directions, like "pick up your sippy cup and put it on the table". 

  • Mae is a growing girl!!! Her 12 mo. clothes are getting snug, so I've packed some of them up and pulled out Arabelle's old 18 mo. clothes. She has a well check up in Sept. I'm curious to see her weight and height! 

  • She still loves to play outside. She can climb to the top of the play set and will go down her little slide all by herself. 

  • She can jump and get a little bit off the ground. She also walks on her tip toes every now and then and thinks it's so funny to walk backwards. 

  • This girl can throw a HUGE tantrum when she doesn't get her way. I usually just leave her alone and she cuts it pretty quickly to catch back up with the rest of us. I guess she doesn't know I've seen this before and don't cater to it. Haha! 
  • She loves trying to keep up with Arabelle and Bo!

  • She's such a happy and fun girl! 

  • Mae loves her baby doll!

  • Sliding almost by herself. ;)
