June: 16 months

June is 16 months old! I meant to do a 15 month update, but 15 months came and went before I knew it. She turned 16 months on the 2nd, so I figured I better get this down before my baby is 2 and I've forgotten everything!

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!

  1. She's such a doll! This is such a fun age!!!

  2. I was starting to think you were never going to post again! So glad to get an update on June. It is so fun to see where the girls are similar and different! Drew was early to walk but later to talk, so from reading above it seems like June has a lot more words than Drew - Drew maybe has 25? Love how cute her hair looks after her haircut, too. Drew is rocking a major mullet. Don't go 4 months in between posts again!! :)
