12 months on July 18, 2017
We still cannot believe Cece is already one! She hit some major milestones this past month as she finally started crawling a few weeks ago. It was like one day she just figured it out and hasn't stopped moving since. I kind of forgot how much more work it is when babies become mobile, no more leaving the room real quick to get something or go to the bathroom because I know she will be getting into something she shouldn't be the second I leave. I think walking is still a few months away for her though because she's just barely taking a few steps when we hold her hands but she has yet to pull herself up to standing from a sitting position and if she's holding onto a table or the couch, she hasn't taken any steps on her own. She's been babbling a ton this past month too so hopefully the babbling will turn into saying a few words soon.
Other exciting/big things that happened this month were we flew across the country to San Francisco for a week and she did great with the 3 hour time change. Now, the flight home was a different story but all in all, she was her normal chill self and just went with the flow even if it meant having to nap in the car or stroller. She was also sick for the first time just last week. She woke up in the middle of the night crying (which was unusual because we haven't heard a peep from her at night in months) and when I went in to check on her, she was burning up. She had a 103 fever and it continued to be 102-103 for the next few days as soon as the medicine we were giving her wore off. We took her to the pediatrician and they ruled out an ear infection and sore throat. She honestly had no other symptoms besides acting lethargic and not as interested in eating (that was our dead giveaway she wasn't feeling well!). They said if she had a fever for a couple more days to bring her back in and they would cath her to determine if it was a UTI. Luckily, her fever broke that night and the following day she had pink spots/rash on her back and chest. I did some research (aka googled it) and was pretty sure she had roseola (mild virus with no treatment). Sure enough, when we went to her 1 year well visit a week later, our pediatrician confirmed that's what she had and the good news is once you have roseola (which is typically only found in kids 6 months-2 years), you usually don't get it again (like chickenpox).
Weight: She was 18 lbs 8 oz on July 21, 2017 at her 12 month appt (11th percentile)
Length: She was 29.25 inches on July 21, 2017 at her 12 month appt (53rd percentile)
Clothes: Cece is still wearing 6-12 months clothes as well as size 3 diapers and size 2-3 shoes.
Eating: Big news this month was we switched Cece to whole milk from breastmilk. We were going to San Francisco for a week at the beginning of July and I didn't want to take a week's worth of frozen breast milk with us so we gave her whole milk one day at home before we left and she drank it right up. Eating has been a breeze with her and especially now because I'll just give her and Lucy the exact same meal (or whatever I'm making for dinner that night). Even when we go out to eat, Lucy & Cece will typically share a kid's meal now.
Sleeping: Again, nothing has changed in the sleep department. She takes 2 naps/ day, one around 9:00 AM and one around 2:00 PM. Her morning nap is about an hour but her afternoon nap is usually around 2 hours. Cece goes to bed between 7:30-8:00 PM and sleeps until 6:30-7:00 AM.
Likes: Crawling, getting into everything, blankets, her pacifier, playing with Lucy
Dislikes: Sitting still (especially during diaper changes), when I'm making dinner and her food isn't ready yet
Milestones: switched from infant carrier car seat to regular car seat, can get into sitting position from laying down (end of June), started crawling (July 1), 5th tooth popped through (July 7), first baseball game (July 9), first birthday (July 18)
