13 months old

13 months old now...

At the end of July, Grandma Pat came to visit.  Mae also had her 12-month checkup at that time, where she weighed in at 22 lbs, 11.5 oz. Height is 30.25 inches.

She has switched from baby formula to soy milk.  She kind of already had anyway, since she kept stealing Libby's milk.

Mae has shown more interest in books lately.  She likes to read I Am A Bunny and Busy Whizzy Bugs.  Also Where's Spot and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  

She chose a stuffed puppy from Libby's stuffed animal collection, that seems to be her favorite, since the puppy gets lots of hugs and kisses.

She continued to walk only 5-10 steps at a time until about a week ago, when she finally committed to walking and now walks the majority of the time.  She can also climb the stairs very well and loves to do it.  This means when we go to the indoor playground she can actually play on the toys now, climbing the little slide all by herself.

She can point, and do it well.  She also waves hello, claps her hands when she's happy, and signs "more" or something approximating the sign for more.  She makes the sign when she wants something, not necessarily more of something.  But we're working on it.

She eats anything and everything.  Yesterday we had a neighborhood barbecue, and when I said Mae could eat a whole chicken breast, everyone thought I was kidding until they actually saw her do it.  She shovels food in as fast as you can give it to her and swallows it without chewing, immediately demanding more.

She sleeps well, but the last couple weeks has been on a rather unpredictable sleep schedule.  I think all the eating, walking, and growing is throwing off her usual schedule.
