14 Months

I can't believe that Eleanor is already 14 months old. She brings us so much joy! Last year at this time E was still so tiny. She weighed a little less than 9 lbs and was still wearing 0-3 month clothes. Now our little girl weighs 23 lbs and wears size 18 month clothes. Last year she was working on rolling over and today we cannot keep her still for a minute. She loves to run and climb. In fact, we have had to remove some of the toys from the play area because she was using them to assist her in climbing on furniture and other objects. Last year she hardly ever made a sound and now she is trying so hard to talk. Just today she was mimicking me as I told her the names of the shapes in her shape box. She still does not say mama very often but when she does it is so sweet. Her favorite person is still daddy and that is ok in my book. When she hears the basement door open she runs to the gate at the top of the stairs and calls to dada until he comes up. She loves music and is a hoot to watch dance. She does this funny little bounce and shakes her bottom. Here's to 14 more months with our precious little one!
