12 month stats - as of about 3 weeks ago
Weight: 20lb 10oz (58th percentile)
Height: 29.5" (55th percentile)
(the last 10 seconds are the best)
- Signs: "all done" (this is her favorite one. She especially does it when we're shopping and she wants to get out of the cart), "milk", "please", "baby" and sometimes "more". I've been trying to teach her "thank you", "bear", "ball", and "eat" but not having much luck yet. I was tickling her on the airplane and she signed "all done". I tickled her again, and she signed "please all done". That was a proud mama moment for me.
Eating lunch and signing "milk" - her word for all food. You can kind of see her cute pig tails :)
- She understands when I ask her to sing and when I tell her it's time to "go bed" she shakes her head. She knows what it means when we fill the bathtub and gets so excited she kicks and squeals the whole way to the tub. If I ask her where a couple things are (like ball, binky, baby, bottle, book) she understands and gets them. Russ taught her to find our nose and our ears, and if you ask her where her belly button is, she tries to lift up her shirt and show you. She's also great at giving kisses.
Sophia really likes her baby doll from Aunt Lissa.
- She basically isn't verbalizing anything except "mama" and finally occasionally says "dada" (except mama is milk most of the time and only sometimes me). Just last week she started saying "uh oh", but most of the time it's just "UH".

Wow. I realized I have taken lots of videos this month, but not that many pictures. I'll have to correct that for next month!
