14 Months

Elizabeth turned 14 months old today!


She has six teeth (three on the top, three on the bottom) and weighs 8 kg.  Mealtimes continue to be an adventure.  Elizabeth eats everything as long as it's chocolate.  Favourites include pasta, rice, peaches, broccoli, cheese, cereal, bread and ice cream.  Some days she can't get enough peaches / broccoli / cheese.  Other days she spits these out in disgust. "Done" is still her favourite word and sign.  She uses it whenever she wants to do something else now.  Especially in the car.  She's started to sign "more" but we're not quite sure whether she actually means more or if she means "again" or "want".  If she can see something that she wants she'll often point to it rather than signing.  If the thing that she wants is not on the table, she turns around and points to the kitchen.


In the last week she's started to drink a measurable amount from a sippy cup.  She usually drinks about 25mL to 50mL of milk.  We've stopped offering water except for special occasions because we don't want to fill her tummy full of empty calories.  She's still not that fond of juice.


We're having a bit of a regression on the using the toilet front, which we understand is fairly common at this age.  This is not popular with Mom or Dad.  Mommy has been pretty tired recently which means she's been less attentive to signals.  We actually had a poopy diaper while out and about the other day.  That was actually kind of funny because Mommy didn't quite know how to deal with it (haven't had to since before Elizabeth started solids!)


Elizabeth is still very busy and possibly getting busier.  Leaving the house helps!  At home Elizabeth likes to climb stairs, play with her sorting eggs, read her books, bounce her ball and hug her teddies.  She also likes to ride her tricycle and push her stroller around and around the basement. Although she's still not walking on her own, she seems closer every day.
