We didn’t throw a big party this year, but had a lovely little family gathering instead. Maiabeanie was pretty overwhelmed by our fussing over her, trying to get her to wear a silly hat, and pushing a bunch of wrapped gifts at her.
She got lots of great stuff: books (including a Thomas one), a wooden train, stuffed animals, and wheeee a bicycle!
Here she is “reading” from one of her old Thomas books, aptly about a birthday party:
Maia weighs 24lb 6oz (38%ile). She is 33.5 inches tall (34%ile). She is perfectly healthy, and for that we are grateful.
She was totally unphased by her flu shot. We were told (as we were at the 12, 15, and 18 month appointments) that we really ought to give up bottles. 😀 I think we are going to try, and I’m pretty sure Beanbean won’t be pleased!
Beanie is still as wiggly and physical as ever, constantly jumping, spinning, or climbing. She loves to learn new things. She picks up new songs after just a couple of listenings. She loves books, her owl 바지, her brownma sleepsack (not the blue sleepsack!), and Thomas the train.
She is happy and talkative. She can sometimes be stubborn and tantrum-y, but gets over it pretty quickly when she is upset. (Sometimes afterwards she tells me very matter-of-factly, “Baby cry.”) She pulls off her socks and hands them to me when I drive her in the car. She is a great eater. She still sucks her thumb.
