Lucy at 17 Months
Lucy's favorite thing this month is climbing as well as imitating what we do. She has mastered climbing on the couch, coffee table, and kitchen chairs and is trying every day to get up on our chaise lounge and end table. I've lost count of the times I've looked over while cooking dinner and she's standing on the coffee table. Lucy has also been imitating every single thing we do. She routinely steals our deodorant and tries to put it on (as in, she actually lifts her shirt or dress up and will stick it in her armpit....luckily she hasn't figured out how to get the top off). She'll also see me blow on her food if it's hot and then she'll do the same thing as well as she'll see Todd & I dip our food into something (fries into ketchup, bread into olive oil, etc.) and then will either give us her food to dip or she'll dip her food into her yogurt. I also saw some water spilled on the coffee table and wiped it off with my shirt sleeve and since then, she'll go around and wipe off the tables with her shirt.
She also has 8 teeth now which means 4 teeth came through this month. She has her top four and bottom four. She wasn't sleeping as well during her nap a few days in a row at the beginning of the month (she'd wake up after an hour crying, I'd hold her for a few minutes, and she'd sleep for another hour) and seemed a little "off" and I think it was because of her teeth.
Lucy still isn't talking or saying any words on a consistent basis but she will say a few words here and there. She's constantly babbling and watching our mouths when we talk so you can tell she's trying to figure it all out. She will say "mama" (typically when I leave the room and she's running after me), "dada," "no," and "bye bye" as well as make animal noises for a dog, monkey, owl, and lion.
Weight: Probably around 23 lbs (She was 22 lbs 3 oz on December 30, 2014 at her 15 month apt & I happen to notice her playing on our scale in the bathroom and it was right on 23 lbs)
Length: Probably around 32-33 inches (She was 31.75 inches on December 30, 2014 at her 15 month appt)
Clothes: She is still wearing the same size as the last few months...anywhere from 12 month clothes (pjs and some pants) all the way up to 18-24 month if clothes (which is pretty much just shirts from Old Navy). The majority of her clothes are either 12-18 months or 18 months. I'm dying to start shopping for spring/summer clothes but I have no idea what size she'll be in a few months so I'm trying to hold off. Lucy is still in size 3 diapers and size 4/5 shoes (depends on brand).
Eating: I feel like we've been pretty lucky so far that Lucy isn't that picky about food. The only things she really doesn't like and will spit out are chicken (basically any chicken that's not ground up like a chicken nugget) and ground beef. While she definitely prefers fruit over vegetables, she will still eat them.
Sleeping: Lucy takes at least one good nap every day (in the afternoon for about 2 hours) and will occasionally take a morning nap if she's tired (which is very rare nowadays). She goes to bed at night typically between 7:30-8:00 PM and gets up between 7:00-7:30 AM.
Likes: Climbing, sitting on the couch, stacking or lining up her toys, Elmo, sticker & coloring books
Dislikes: When she climbs onto something and we make her get down
Milestones: Climbed out of crib for the first time (February 8)
