Today I took Katelyn to her One year old check up. It’s hard to believe she’s already 1, even though we had a wonderful party to celebrate and then went to the zoo on her birthday day. Katelyn weighed in at a little under 21lbs and was 28 inches long. She grew 2 inches in the last 2 months, which is awesome, but, poor thing did not inherit “tall genes” from Kyle and I. She is still average height on the scale of things so that’s good.
Katelyn has been walking since she was 11 months old so she is quite proficient now and is beginning to figure out how to climb on things. She is becoming a little ornery at times, but is learning the meaning of “no, no” and what happens when Mommy gets to 3. She is saying Mama, Dada, Daddy, Hi, Hey, bye bye and shoes. She is working on juice, dog, cat and other simple words. When we had Katelyn dedicated we gave her a life verse that said “be joyful always” and she truly is. She is filled with smiles and laughter all day long.
The doctor said that she looks great, is very smart and noticeably coordinated for her age. Katelyn is eating solid foods, and is starting to drink whole milk. Now to wean her off the bottles and pacifiers. The doctor encouraged me to do it cold turkey, but I think it will be my goal to wean her by 13 months. I still have yet to find a sippy cup she likes.
Thank you for all your continued love, support and prayers for Katelyn and our family. We love you all!
