It's hard to believe Emmy is one year old! When I see these pictures of her standing up she looks like such a big girl. Can't believe how fast she is growing up.
We had her 12 month well check today and here are her new stats:
Weight: 20 pounds 15 ounces (50th percentile)
Height: 30.5 inches (90th percentile)
No wonder she looks like such a big girl! She has sprouted up! At her 9 month check up she was in the 60th percentile for height and now she is back in the 90th percentile.
So Emmy is a happy and healthy girl. She is still having some trouble with table foods although we continue to make progress. She is also having trouble with just eating in general again. Most of the time she is very fussy while eating and doesn't eat a full meal. She also pulls at her ears a lot while eating. She has started burping a lot during and after eating so the doctor recommended increasing her reflux medicine dosage. Jackson was able to come off of his reflux medicine at a year so I was hoping for the same with Emmy but it seems like she still needs it. I am hoping this will help her eating overall.
Table foods that she consistently eats are: banana, peas, bread, waffle, grapes, sweet potato and any kind of cracker, cereal, etc.
Currently, she says: uh-oh, mama, dada, and hi. She also will imitate: bye, done, night night, shoes and socks.
She loves playing with all different kinds of toys and especially likes to play with whatever Jackson is playing with! She does love books and enjoys pulling them all off her shelf and looking through them. She loves anything soft like her stuffed animals and will give them big hugs. But her favorite thing to do is just walk around the house. This makes her super happy!
Jackson was so sweet to little Emmy on her birthday. He sang Happy Birthday to her that morning and was so excited that it was her special day! I am so blessed to have two sweet kiddos!
