At her one year appointment, her stats were:
Weight: 24 pounds (90%)
Height: 30 inches (75%)
Head: 18.5 inches (90%)
And in terms of milestones, she started crawling at 8 months and walked for the first time on her birthday.
But it's her personality that is most worth noting. Our baby is best described as feisty, fearless, and fabulous....
|We should have known early on that she was going to be a stubborn one with lots of, shall we say, "spunk."|
|The colic of her first two months translated into a charming stubborn-ess and attitude later. She doesn't put up with much, and is not afraid to let her feelings be known and be known LOUDLY. She likes to chatter and we carry on full-length, animated conversations. She also will fight for what she wants, will not be tamed by a television, and does not like to sleep (she didn't start sleeping through the night until 11 months). All of these are reasons we affectionately call her "The Honey Badger." (Honey Badger don't care)|
|The most noticeable difference between Tate and Lily Jane is in how fearless she is. Tate has always been very cautious and careful. Not LJ. Where Tate feared Bill Murray, Lily Jane gave him a big smooch the first time they were introduced. Where Tate would scream during the car wash when he was an infant, Lily Jane laughs and squeals. Lily Jane likes to climb, and she loves to tackle Tate wherever he may be sitting. (And she can almost take him.) In this picture, she careens around the house with the walker like she's Dale Earnhardt Jr. Tate would toddle very, very slowly and carefully.|
She may be a feisty, fearless, fabulous toddler, but she'll always be our baby!
