Kensington Brooke is 13 months old today! This picture is complete real life for us at this age. Wild hair. Milk on her dress. Food on her face. Bruise on her forehead. And had to be quick with the snap on this one because she gives you about 3 seconds of posing and all hopes of her holding still are out the window.
Regardless, and minus the falls that give me mild heart attacks, I am loving this age!!!
KB is officially a full night sleeper!!! We’re on night 7 of her sleeping completely through the night for 12-13 hours! 🤗 She still takes 2 naps a day and I am in no rush for her to graduate to 1.
K loves to dance, run (she just learned that one – pray for me), throw (more prayers needed), push things with wheels (like other people’s strollers), do squats and point. Pointing is her number one skill at the moment and she thinks it’s extra fun to trick people into giving her exactly what she wants with the power of that little finger.
Kensie has discovered how to get into the pantry, grab what she wants, and bring it to someone to open for her. She is drinking whole milk and finally starting to eat table food! Some days are better than others, but we are getting there! Lately she loves yogurt, oatmeal, peanut butter sandwiches and teething cookies.
She is mimicking sounds and motions more and more and some are pretty entertaining. I make an “oooo ooo ooo” sound before I give her raspberries or tickle her so now when she wants to play she starts saying “oooo ooo ooo” to the same tune I do it! She also copies Daddy when he whistles. Home girl whistles better than I do! (And how did she figure that out?!?) She tries to open doors by the handle, “type” on computers and scrolls the phone with her finger. 🤦🏼♀️ When she got a fever after her shots she watched me take her temperature and then kept grabbing the thermometer and putting it on her own head. She loves to “clean” and takes paper towels and napkins and starts wiping things with them.
Her favorite toys are…anything that isn’t actually a toy. Remotes. Coasters. The computer mouse. Cell phones. Bags. Oh my gosh she has this weird love for bags. She does climb in and out of her car on a daily basis. She likes to sit in it, swing her feet and drink her milk.
K is 18.12lb, just under 28″ long, has 2 teeth on the bottom and 4 on top. Teething or not, EVERYTHING always goes in this kids mouth. I have to completely disinfect the steering wheel on the cart at Publix because she always licks it.
I don’t think Kens added any words to her vocabulary this month, but it is getting easier to understand her and she’s got some very creative ways of communicating what she wants! She STILL isn’t saying mama but when I say “can you say mama” she does the sound where you move your finger up and down on your lips. Maybe that sounds like “mmm” to her. 🤔🤷🏼♀️
KB is the BEST sharer. Be careful with joking around while asking for her food. She will straight up put it in your mouth. Sometimes she takes it back, but she’ll at least pretend to offer it.
Life has changed a lot this month as we finished breastfeeding and she’s made her official entrance to toddler hood. It’s a whole new adventure and this little lady adds a lot more fun to each day!
