At this point, I need to just get over the fact that Kenley isn’t a baby anymore, and is very much a toddler! At 13 months (and a couple weeks since I am behind!), she can hold her own against her brother (for the most part) and is NOT shy about getting her way. *cough*SHEISTOTALLYHERDADSKID*cough*
At 13 months, Kenley is wearing 12 month clothes, some 18 month things, and still some 9 month pants– it just depends. She is definitely a peanut, taking after her mom.
Favorite things: Books, milk, grapes, apples, mandarin oranges, getting her way, the ball popper, jumping on beds and couches, all things Mickey or Minnie Mouse, trying to walk, oh and still, getting her way. Did I mention she likes to get her way?
Not-so-favorite things: NOT getting her way, not taking things away from Brayden, getting her nose wiped, getting her diaper changed, getting left behind when I go into another room.
She is walking–5-6 steps at a time and standing for longer periods alone. She still prefers to walk with someone holding on to her, but I expect any DAY now for her to just take off and never sit back down.
She is a rockstar sleeper– going from 8pm-7:30am or later pretty consistently. Naps? Have been more difficult lately. If she sleeps later than 8:30am, then morning nap doesn’t usually happen, and then sometimes her afternoon nap is only an hour or so. I TRY to get her to nap longer because otherwise she is just a bear–but most often, that doesn’t happen. Combine this with the fact that we are trying to get Brayden to drop his afternoon nap (I know, we are NUTS) , this leaves me with ZERO time in the afternoon to recharge. BUT earlier bedtimes help– which is good, because I have been keeping busy with photography!
Here’s to another month gone by, sweet girl!
