The difference between 12 and 16 months is huge! I feel like June went from being a baby to a full-blown toddler over night! And although its exhausting because she's always on the go, I am absolutely loving this stage. She is just so fun!
I've been keeping notes on my phone month by month, so here we go..
June at 13 months…
*Says "quack" when she sees a duck
*Says the sounds for cow, sheep, horse, and dog when prompted, "What does a __ say?"
*Points to body parts when prompted, "June where is your ___?"
*Does the sign for milk and all done
*Completely weaned from breastfeeding!
June at 14 months…
*Says dog, dada, cracker, snack, please (p/p/p)
*Got 4 molars (now has 12 teeth total)
*Had her first haircut
*Dropped her morning nap
*Loves to scream/shriek at the top of her lungs when she wants something or doesn't get her way (seriously, ear-piercing)
June at 15 months…
*Says hi, bye bye, up, go, book, hush (with finger to lips), mama, yes, no, coat, shoe, sock, Nemo, bath, vroom vroom (for car) and baby
*Took her first steps
*Stood up on her own without pulling up on anything
June at 16 months…
*Walking! Although she took her first steps at 15 months, she didn't really start walking until right before she turned 16 months. Little lady took her sweet time!
*Sleeps 12-13 hours at night and takes one 1-2 hour nap in the afternoons. She says "nigh nigh" when she's tired and ready for bed.
*Loves to give hugs, kisses and Eskimo kisses
*Loves to play dress-up
*So social! Loves interacting with people, loves being around other kids of all ages, and is always talking.
*Talking a ton! She's just saying single words, not stringing them together yet, but I can't even keep track of how many words she knows. She also mimics everything (my goodness, we really have to watch what we say around her!)
*She's still a fabulous eater and eats everything we eat.
Never a dull moment with this little girl! She can be challenging, but she is SO MUCH FUN!
Love you June Bug!
