Let me start by saying I had intended on taking several pictures of Stella for her 16 month post!!!! but the camera battery died, so this is the only picture I have. So as you can see Stella is starting to "try" to feed herself. We only try this when we're home...if you witnessed this---you'd understand :)
Ok, Stella is a busy busy girl. Here is what she is up to at 16 months...
Food: I think she went through a growth spurt a couple weeks ago because we could not keep enough food in front of her. She will eat ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, except cottage cheese. She really does LOVE food. Don't worry her appetite has slowed down, but that could be the stomach bug she is just now getting over. As far as drink..she only likes water and milk. She doesn't want anything to do with gatorade, pedialyte, sprite (she only tried these when she was sick). Stella loves her "cookies" (they're really gerber granola bars), cheerios and gold fish.
Sizes: She is still in size 3 diaper. She weighed 22 pounds 14 ounces when we took her to the dr the other day. Stella is wearing size 12-18 month in her clothes and is finally wearing a "normal" size shoe...size four, but it depends on the shoe. She has tiny feet.
Words: There are so many, but the latest is NO and she says it with attitude. Oh Lord help us! :)
But she is saying Daddy now instead of Dada and sometimes I get a Mommy.
Favorites: Books, baby dolls, other kids, Little People, dancing. OH MY GOSH...Stella LOVES Yo Gabba Gabba. I mean loves it. That's a whole post in itself.
Stella, we love you more than you will ever know. Thank you for entertaining us and loving us despite our sillyness. We can't wait to see what the next month brings, but SLOW down because time is going too fast! Love you...Daddy and Mama/Mommy
