Guess Who's One Year Old? LadyBear!!
I know this is way late, but I wanted to wait for her 1 year well check stats before I posted this and that appointment just happened this morning (after many reschedulings on the part of both myself and our Dr.).
September 7th marked LadyBear's first birthday. We had a lovely party, which I think she genuinely enjoyed, and really had a good time celebrating our little girl. She is an absolute joy to our family and we LOVE having her around.
She is 29" tall and weighs in at 19 lbs, 6 oz. For reference, LittleBear was 29.25" tall and weighed 18 lbs, 12 oz. That puts her in about the 19th % of American kids for weight (41st % on the WHO charts) and the 41st % of American kids for height (37% on the WHO charts). You might remember how LittleBear compared to Mommy and Daddy at his 1 year checkup, and LadyBear fits right in the middle.
Developmentally, she seems to be pretty close to where LittleBear was at this age. She babbles a good amount and has already figured out the standing up in her crib thing. Each morning when I come in to get her she's standing there waiting for me :) She's very confidently walking in the walker and pulls up on anything and everything. She walks well holding our fingers and is a very fast crawler (either army style or hands and knees). She pulls herself up to sitting and is VERY curious. She does not like to be told "no." One thing she did figure out is how to drink out of a straw cup and enjoys having her own straw cup like brother's.
We expect her to start walking on her own sometime in the near future, but aren't in a rush :)
Happy first year, LadyBear!!!
