“Mom” & other 17-month updates

Finally, on Sunday while E was sitting in her high chair, I heard a very quiet: “Mom.” So quiet, I wasn’t even sure she said it. So I said it back. She said it back again, with a little smile. Then I said it again, and clapped. She said it again and again. I whooped and clapped until she said it again. And we’ve pretty much been repeating this routine ever since.

  • Other favorite words include: shoe, apple, owl (dada somehow taught her this one) and “ut” (out) while banging a little hand on the door
  • Tooth count: 6! Two on the top, two on the bottom, and one on each side in the way back.
  • Sleep habits: Sadly, dropped the morning nap sometime in the last month or so. And, her typical 6:40-7:00 a.m. wake-up is now more like 6:00 a.m.
  • Favorite foods include: spinach lasagna, macaroni and cheese (where we now at least attempt to sneak in a vegetable or two), eggs, peaches, bananas and anything she can smear all over the table and/or face (i.e. applesauce)
  • Favorite activities: reading reading reading, going to the library, dancing and anything where she can watch older kids
