14 Months Old!

I'm really behind on blogging, this post has been written since the 11th and the pictures were taken that weekend.  I'm just now getting around to putting it together.  Sorry, been a little busy lately!

Hannah Lee you are 14 months old now!   You are such a big girl and we barely see any more baby left in you.  You are a very busy girl and rarely stop except to sleep.  You talk NON STOP and your little voice is so cute and sweet.  You just babble away all day, sometimes saying real words and sometimes just talking away in your own language. 

You love to EAT!!!  You get so excited when we say eat and you just sign eat and walk over to your chair.  You also sign milk and you know exactly what that is and get very upset if you see your cup of milk and don't get it quickly.

You still sleep great at night.  We put you in bed around 7pm and you play in your bed usually around 10-15 minutes and then you're out until around 6am.  On the weekends you sleep longer.  You've been doing great napping at school too, usually sleeping 2-2.5 hours (3 hours on the weekends lately).  Every now and then I go check on you when you're napping at school and you look so cute curled up on your tiny little cot. 

You are obsessed with pictures, seriously obsessed.  You want to look at them constantly and like to tell us everyone in the pics.  Usually you just say Mama a lot and point.  And baby.  You loooove to say baby.  You also LOVE to look at pictures of yourself on my iPhone or iPad.  You think it's so much fun.  You think it's even more fun to watch videos of yourself on them.  It's so cute.  You've already figured out that you can just swipe your finger across the screen to unlock it and to move to the next picture so you do that often. 

You still love you some shoes!  You now call them "doose" instead of "tank toos" so we're getting somewhere.  :)  You really like to put different shoes on and think it's so fun to walk around like that.  We rarely get anywhere in the car without you taking your shoes and socks off.  It keeps you busy in the car so we just go with it.  You also take off one shoe and sock at school about 10 times a day and apparently, you have taught your friends how to do the same.  I've already said sorry to your teachers for that one... Haha. 

You are SO smart Hannah!  You are already showing an interest in going potty and you tell us every time you poo poo.  You just walk up to one of us or your teachers and say "poo poo" and touch your bottom so we know.  Your teachers say we can start to potty train you now that you are showing interest but I think we're going to hold off a little while on that.  You've never told us you've gone tee tee so instead of changing your clothes 25 times a day, we'll just wait until you're a few months older.  

You've gotten your 10th, 11th, and 12th teeth in!  Your 2nd bottom molar and two of your top molars.  You are such a trooper!  Your first molar hurt coming through but these three don't seem to bother you at all.  You can really see your bottom molars when you smile.

You love making animal sounds.  Any time we see a picture of an animal in your books or tv you say the sounds.  So far you know cow (moo), horse (neh), sheep (baa), dog (woof), and cat (meow).  So far the only color you know is yellow and you love to say that often.  You can recognize it in pictures and on flowers.  You also now say "yite" (and point to the light), apple and "snack".  You're so smart.  :)  You're really into saying "happy" now too.  Repeatedly.  It's so cute!  

We love you so much Hannah Lee!!  You are just the sweetest, happiest, funniest, cutest little girl we've ever seen!

Sad Heart

Normally I never blog about other people but this blog world is a crazy thing.  I have learned about things I never would have dreamed about and found inspiration in people I've never met (and most likely never will meet) before.  When I checked on my regular blogs this morning my heart become so so sad for a girl who I've gotten to know over the past few years.  Julee Turner and I met because of our infertility struggles and thankfully for both of us, through the help of IVF we each welcomed our beautiful daughters into the world last year.  Late Saturday night her world was crushed when her husband Matt passed away in a car accident.  I literally gasped when I read the news, I'm so broken hearted for their family but most especially Julee and sweet Preslee.  Julee and I are not life long friends but through emailing about acupuncture, infertility, etc and mainly just through reading her blog I've gotten to know her and I can't even imagine what she's going through right now.  I just pray for her to make it through this time with Preslee as best as she can.  I very randomly thought about Julee, Matt and Preslee over the weekend, I can't even remember what it was I was thinking about but maybe it was God's way of telling me to pray for them.  My heart is broken for them right now and I know there aren't very many people who read this blog but if you feel like you'd like to help in any way please go over to Kelly's Korner and she has info on how people are trying to help Julee and Preslee.  Please say a prayer for the Turner family.

Now I'm going to walk over to Hannah's class and give her a big hug.

Silly Girl

Hannah is more and more like a toddler every single day.  She makes us laugh SO hard at the silly things she does and when she sees us laughing at her she cracks up even more.  It's so cute.  I want to remember so much of the little things she does so here are a few things that stick out in my mind.

Last week she watched me putting lotion on my arms and legs.  She was very curious about what I was doing and walked over and touched my leg and looked at me funny when she felt the lotion.  Then she put her finger in her mouth to taste it.  Nice.  Well, fast forward a few days when I picked her up at school and her teacher was laughing and telling me about lunchtime when they had mashed potatoes and Hannah took a handful of hers and according to her teacher "wiped them all over her arms like she was putting on lotion".  I just laughed because I knew exactly why she did that.

A few times this month I've dropped something on the carpet so I've been on the ground cleaning the spot.  Hannah is so funny, she watches me cleaning and will walk over and get on the ground and mimic me and "help" me clean the carpet.  Sweet girl.

Hannah has lately decided she wants to eat A LOT!!  Never before did she have a huge appetite, she would eat a normal amount and then usually not finish her food and get bored with it.  Not anymore.  No way.  Now, she walks over to us signing "eat" and saying "eat eat" while she signs it and then she'll walk over to her high chair and wait for us to put her in it.  Last night she ate SO much food!  Her dinner was six raviolis, 1/2 an avocado, pears and an ENTIRE banana!  Plus her puff sticks.  After ALL that she cried watching us eat our dinner because she wanted more.  Ridiculous.  She's a little piggy!

Her vocabulary is really taking off too. 
These are all the words she says and I'm sure I'm forgetting many.
Nanna (Hannah, my favorite!)
Baw (ball)
Bobee (Brody)
Yeh-yow (yellow)
Fower (flower)
No (always while pointing her finger and shaking it)
Yesh (yes)
Ha-whoa (hello)
Eye (while pointing at her eyes)
Nosh (while pointing at her nose)

And of course, no post would be complete without a few pics of our silly girl.
Helping Daddy water the seeds

She ate almost all of the food on that plate!

First bow in her HAIR!!  She's always just had bows attached to headbands but she has just enough hair for a little bow.  So precious.  Love that smile.

Signing more to me after finishing her dinner 

Playing in her jammies while wearing a boot and sneakers.  That's how she rolls people.
