Caity at 13 Months

13 Month

It’s been a busy month for Caity. We left for Canada a few days after her 1st birthday (and her ONEderland party). The past month has been busy with unpacking, learning the area, and enjoying our new home as much as possible before it gets too cold. Overall she has handled the transition well. She loves exploring their new spacious playroom and getting into trouble.

About 2 weeks ago I started trying her in the crib again. I was amazed with how different it has gone this time. For naps and at night I will go into her room, nurse her, then rock her to sleep for awhile. Then I lay her down in her crib. The first two or so days she woke up as soon as I stood up and spent most of the time crying and then sitting up asleep. The next few days after that she would cry a bit but not sit up so I sat there until she drifted off. Most recently she barley wakes up and lets out a little cry if that. If she wakes before we go to bed we let her go and she usually falls back asleep quickly. Between 11-1 she wakes up and wants to come in with us/nurse so that’s when we go and get her. I don’t mind her sleeping with us especially if I have the evening to spend with Rob or get things done.

We’ve tried to introduce milk but she doesn’t seem to like it much. I am going to keep working on it and once she is drinking it regularly we are going to start weaning her. I am anxious to spend our anniversary in April away for the weekend and to get my next tattoo. Two things I can’t do if she isn’t weaned yet!

She has such a stinking cute personality although it’s fairly feisty. She gets really upset and mad if you tell her no or she gets in trouble for hurting her brother. She also won’t stop grunting and screeching until you give her something she wants. And don’t you dare think of giving her brother something to eat that she doesn’t also get. Her babbles are really starting to seem like words, we just have to figure out what those are. She is also getting more adventurous with climbing and standing on her own for short periods of time. It seems like she maybe walking before the new year!
