13 months!

Bri,

Stop it already, your getting way too big way too fast. I can not believe you are now 13 months old. Life has been pretty amazing for us Goodenbury Girls. Daddy has been the most amazing man ever. Its like his eyes have been opened to your beauitful splendid light. We have had so much fun as a family this month. We went to Seaworld on Memorial Day and had a blast. You loved the fish tanks and were a little scared of the dophines when we fed them. Daddy is finding a renter to take over the lease on the Lake Mary home so that we can moved in together at the Sanford home. It will be so nice to have us together as a family.

Some fun facts about you at 13 months:

I stopped breastfeeding you this last month. You have had a little trouble dealing with it but your adjusting. You have taken well to milk, almost a little to well, you have decreased your intake of food slightly but your still a very good eater.

You still only have 4 teeth, I’m pretty sure that your not getting any other any time soon. I checked with your pediatrician and they are not worried so we will just deal with what we got.

Your favorite foods are still black beans, avacado and strawberries. You eat a lot of other foods as well. You recently have started to really love gatorade. NOt my fav choice of drinks but some fights are not worth having, so your allowed one cup/day of the non-food coloring clear wild berry.

You have moved up to size 4 shoes and are wearing 18months cloths. You are still being cloth diapered, we have slowly transitioned to just Flip diaper covers and inserts as those are the only ones that don’t leak ; )

I cut your bangs this month. I try and put your hair up all the time but sometimes when your in a “mood” you take it down and I can NOT stand it in your eyes so I trimmed you bangs and you look super cute.

Your vocabulary is always expanding. Potty, duck, cup are some of your new words.

You constantly are and have bruises everywhere. Your always running into something or falling. Bubble wrap has crossed my mind.

You still LOVE Yo Gabba Gabba, I think that we have watched EVERY episode and I know all the words. I love being your mom!

Speaking of MOm, you just recently started yelling MaMaMa and I follow back with BRIBRibri. Its pretty cute.

I read an article that said you can pretty much determine your child’s future personality by 6 months and not to brag but you are going to be one of the coolest people ever! Your a spitfire, bossy, lovable, smart and beautiful person already. This world is very blessed.

I love you so much baby girl, Happy 13 months!

Love,

Mamma

My toddler : )

Brielle,

You had an amazing birthday! You only picked at your cake but you loved all the awesome presents that everyone got for you! We had your 1 yr check-up on May 2nd, you weighed 19lb 8 oz, which is 25% and 30in tall, which is 75%. Some other fun stuff going on is that your daddy and I are trying to work out our differences. Praying that it all works out ; ) I love you baby girl.

Fun Facts:

You favorite people right now are Me, Aunt Jamie, Daddy, Nicholas, Victoria and Grandma (in that order).

You love to breastfeed, I thought you were going to wean but nope. Your still going full-force. We are still co-sleeping, but to be honest it’s getting to be exhausting. I look forward to you sleeping in a bed of your own. probably won’t happen though.

Your favorite toys are you new playhouse, your baby stroller, baby doll and necklaces. Pretty much anything that you can put around your neck turns into a necklace. You really love all the pretty ones that you have. It’s really cute.

New words: eyes (while poking out my eyes), ba for my boob, there are so many, your learning so much.

You wear size 18-24 months and still size 3-4 shoes. You still only have 4 teeth but I’m pretty sure you have some more coming through soon.

You hair is getting longer now, when its wet it goes down to the bottom of your neck. It’s also got a lot of wave to it. Since you’ve been in the sun a lot lately it’s lightened up and gotten a red high-light to it. It reminds me a lot of my natural hair color.

YOu recently lost your big toenail on your left foot. You dropped a can on it, OUCH!

You still eat almost anything. You have no allergies so far that we are aware of ; )

You love your doggies and cats, you really love feeding them.

Your daddy and I took you to the zoo for the first time this last Friday. Your favorite things were the monkeys and the petting area part. It was pretty cute watching you feed the sheep.

You have developed quit the attitude lately. You scream and growl at the same time when you get really mad. I am pretty stern about not letting you get your way when you do that. On a funny note you growl pretty regularly just for fun.

YOu are hilarious when you walk around the house on your pretend phone having a conversation, anything and everything functions as a phone ; ) You also have this super cute “hi” every time you walk into a room and see someone. You’re an amazing little girl every day you are in my life I fall more in love and my heart is already overflowing…
