Growing Up: Hattie at 16 Months

Well, totally skipped 15 Months, but whatever... I'm pregnant and allowed to skip months. :-p

Weight: 21 pounds, 9 ounces
Height: 32.5 inches

On November 12th (while at the park), she just took 25 steps out of nowhere! LOL.
Three days later, she was walking half the time, while still crawling the other half.
By November 20th, she had stopped crawling!

She is a TALKER! 
Her vocab is about 30-40 words now, but a lot of the times,
she just babbles on and on... and on..., and I can't understand most words. LOL.
She grabs everything she can, puts it to her ear (pretending it's a phone),
says, "Hi!" and proceeds to talk away!
It's so cute. She even talks in her sleep! ;-)

Finally has opinions on foods. This is brand new!
Faves are grapes (GAH!!! wants them constantly), rice, beans, pasta, cucumbers and sugar snap peas.
Still "nurses," but since I've dried up, she also drinks lots of soy milk sippy cups. LOL. ;-)

Got her first haircut on Thanksgiving Day.
These two photos are closeups of the occasion...

Has 14 teeth.

Does a lot of sign language still.

Loves saying, "Bye!" and "Hi!" to EVERYbody and EVERYthing.
She even said "bye!" (and waved!) in her sleep one night. Tee hee.

Loves giving kisses and hugs.

Loves playing with dolls, balls, her flashcards, a cell phone (my old one), and books.
Still LOVES books, but now that she's walking, she reads far less and plays far more.
Her doll stroller, shopping cart, and doll house get LOTS of use.

Favorite books: Mother Goose, Little People's Let's Go to the Farm,
Biscuit, and First 100 Words

Oh, we love this girl so much! She's so wonderful.
We're so blessed to have her in our lives.
She's going to be an amazing big sister (to a little brother!) in May! ;-)
