Stats are where it's at

Amaya had her one year well baby visit on Wednesday. Little Petunia weighed 24.5 lbs and was 30.5 inches tall. Those numbers put her right in the 90th percentile for height and weight. I guess she isn't such a little Petunia, is she?

Little princess says Mama, Daddy, and What's this? as she points to every object under the sun. She seems to have no fear when it comes to climbing and then hurling herself off of various pieces of furniture with her most favorite being Chase's bed. She squiggles like a worm on a hook when it's diaper changing time. There are currently 6 teeth in her mouth with at least 2 more getting ready to break through. She pretty much only uses her pacifier in the crib and in the car although I've given it to her more recently during the day because of her teething crabbies. We're working on the sippy cup filled with milk as a means of nourishment idea--you may remember that it's a struggle making that particular transition.

Hmmm what else? Oh yes, she has a bit of a Mommy attachment thing going on.

She loves to watch her brother and then imitate whatever he does. Chase will be using his TAG reader while Amaya looks on with great interest. As soon as he puts it down and walks away, she'll grab it and try to make it work using the same motions she saw big brother doing.

Then we repeat the process with Chase's tools, cars, puzzles etc. etc. etc.

So basically, she's your average, smiling, ornery, adorable little 12 month old wonder child.
