As you guys all know, Summer turned one earlier this week! And this won’t be the last post you guys see on this subject, so I hope you all like to see cute little girls!
Tuesday, on Summer’s actual birthday, we had a pretty low key day. We started by going for a run, we played outside, we ran to the store and I bought a tiny little cake and some balloons then we came home, went back outside and took some pictures. That evening we just had dinner, cake and some presents with just our little family. (Birthday Party pics coming soon!)
In the past I’m sure you’ve seen that my daughter is typically less than cooperative when it comes to picture time, and on her birthday she didn’t disappoint. She didn’t want to wear her headband. She wasn’t interested in walking to me. She didn’t want to touch the sign I made her, and I had to tie the balloons to her to get a picture. But I managed to get a few cute ones!
This girl got loaded up on clothes like nobody’s business! I cannot believe how much she got and then we got her some too, so she is set for a while!
And she got lots of baby dolls!
Today we went in for her 1 year check up and everything was great! I knew her weight was on the small side, (she is wearing mainly 6-9 month clothes still) and at her last appt the Dr. said he wasn’t concerned but would wait until 1 year to see how she is growing. Well today, what I figured he was going to say, he said!
Summer has only gained 10 oz since her 9 month appointment! She weighed in at 16 pounds, 14 oz. and is only 5% for her weight, 25% for her height (which is up from her last appt). Now we are going to switch her to whole milk to increase her calories and this is going to be an interesting transition.
This little girl loves her mama’s milk and even though we’ve been working on straws/sippy cups, I don’t see this going well, especially at first. I am going to try to start weaning her, but any tips you might have would be greatly appreciated.
