6 Months a FAMILY

How time flies...

  • 6 months a Family and she's almost 18 months!
  • G is finally starting to say lots of words, mostly:
  • NO, mama, CRAK KA (cracker), Pirate, Giorgia, Diaper, MINE, bug bite, more, bath, Ball, up, shoes, bow, Bub-Bye, Hi, and Uh Ohh.
  • She only signs for Hungry and More.
  • Honestly, does she need anymore than this. These about cover all her needs and wants. She is VERY demanding when it comes to these words and signs above. It seems that she is only interested in learning those words that will get her what she wants. Hopefully she'll want to eventually want to learn more!
  • She's only 22 lbs and 31" in height. She's about the 50% in the Southern Girls Asian Growth Charts but at 3% on the American Charts.
  • She's already had bumps, bruises, scratches, scrapes, bites and STITCHES! What does the future hold for us!!!
  • She is still swimming in 12mo clothing. 6-9 month is a better fit as long as it's seperates. She'd be best off with 3-6 mo skirts!
  • She's a cleaner. (didn't get this from me) It's either from her SWI or daycare. I remove all uneaten food off her highchair and spirt a tad bit of windex on her tray and give her a paper towel and she cleans it off. She is obsessed with cleaning stuff. Give her a wipe and she'll wipe you down too. Might have a helper after all...lord knows I need one.
  • She loves her puppy and needs a puppy kiss from him EVERY day! It's so cute.
  • When she needs her diaper changed, if you ask her, she will get a new diaper, bring it to you and lay down and she always "opens" up the new one while you are working on removing the dirty one.
  • Can throw trash in the trash and car key, shoes and anything else important.
  • Knows where I keep the tissues and how to blow her nose. She will get only one tissue and use it and then throw it in the trash.
  • When asked to she can put all her toys away before bedtime.
  • After I brush her teeth she brushes them. Not just chews, she actually brushes.
  • Starting to swim on her belly in the bathtub.
  • She got her first haircut.
  • She got her ears pierced.
  • She's a really good girl and plays well with others and independently!!
  • She likes to "be on her own program" and play quietly for long periods of time.
  • She still loves books and has started to like coloring!
  • She no longer attempts to eat the crayons!!!
  • She likes her snacks right after her meal at the coffee table. She pulls up her kiddie chair to it and wants the snacks in the suction bowl along with her sippy cup and there she takes her snacks!
  • Found out she's highly allergic to Mosquitos!
  • I believe she has allergies...it's unofficial right now but Zyrtec is working wonders.
  • She is still going to sleep at 7pm and waking at 5:45am. (We're out the door EARLY!)

That is just some of the fun stuff that she's doing now. Life is good! I couldn't imagine a more perfect little girl!!! (Tantrums and all!) She's my pride and joy!
