Let me bring everyone up to date on the basics:
Leah had her 1 year checkup last week. She currently weighs 21 lbs 8oz and is 29 inches long. She had 3 vaccines and they pricked her big toe to check for anemia. Poor girl.
She currently has 7 teeth. 4 on top, 3 on the bottom.
At around 11 months, Leah refused all baby food. She only eats table food now and she HAS to feed herself. ;) Her favorite things so far seem to be hamburger, bananas, and Olive Garden breadsticks.
We're DONE with formula! YIPPEE! We're on to whole milk, which is wonderful and so economical. We're also down to 2 bottles per day (first thing in the morning and bedtime). She drinks from sippy cups throughout the rest of the day.
No walking yet. She is mastering standing on her own and has been cruising a lot more. And she still loves to crawl super fast everywhere.
Words she can say: Mama, Dada, Bye, Pooh-ba (Pooh Bear), Ba (for bottle or ball, depending on what's in her sight) and sometimes I swear she says Da-ba (for "Dodgeball"). She also understands that a doggy says "woof woof" (she'll go "uh uh") and she claps whenever we cheer and say "Yay!". Other than that, she loves to babble in her own Leah language. :)
