Chloe, my Darling


My little Chlo Worm is becoming more and more independent each day. I am not gonna lie, I love it! She seems much happier now that she can get around on her own and reach things that she wants rather than point and get upset that we don't understand what she is pointing at. Although, she is now able to reach things on our bathroom counter that she wasn't able to do before. And she has been able to open the front door...so we have to take extra precautions.  We noticed a huge change in her attitude since she has been able to walk on her own and it has been such a blessing! Now she wants to walk EVERYWHERE. She even will walk in circles over and over around our couch (which sits in the middle of our living room). She is such a cutie and her little waddle walk is adorable.


At her last doctors visit they said she was now 26 pounds and is ______ tall. She wears size 18 mo-24mo clothing and size 5 shoes. She is still in size 4 diapers, but is moving up soon, I'm sure. Her little chunky legs are getting more slender now that she is walking more (tear!). She talks her own little baby talk and she has the cutest little girl voice. She loves to make funny faces and stick her tongue out. Her favorite toys are her little Legos and her bath crayons. She LOVES the bath and is always pointing to it and tries to get in. She has been drawing and coloring up a storm, luckily only on the paper and table. I am still waiting for the day that I come home to find crayons all over the walls!

Her schedule is still unpredictable. She goes to sleep anytime between 8:00pm-11:00pm depending on what she did that day and how long her naps were. She typically wakes up around 7:00am, the same time we do, so it's great for us. She takes a nap at the sitters right after lunch (if only she would do that on weekends!). At around 8:00pm we dim the lights in the house and start to settle down. We turn on a family friendly movie, although she prefers movies with real people, and she sits there with us or quietly plays on the couch until she gets sleepy. It's been a great wind down period that she is used to now, finally!

She drinks 3 bottles of  whole milk a day, about 24 ounces. She is still an incredibly picky eater and will not touch her veggies or apples (I don't understand the apples, they are my fave!) but with our new sneaky cookbook that I will talk about later, she will be eating them everyday from now on, weather she knows it or not. haha. She still loves bananas, scrambled eggs and chicken nuggets and has now added string cheese, pizza, goldfishies and honey nut cheerios to her list of fave foods. We try to mix it up, we really do, but she never goes for it. Supposedly she eats everything and anything at the sitters (which is great because they serve all kinds of yummy all organic dishes!)

In the past month she has suffered a couple colds, an ear infection and then a double ear infection. :( With the help of medicines and lots of love and care (and days off work from Mom & Dad) she is back to normal and is her happy go lucky self again! 

Well, that's the update on her... how are your beautiful children (or furkids) doing?

The little boy I nanny for, Jeremiah, is in this same stage. I'm constantly in awe at watching this little being roam around. He's obsessed with all things, "keeties, keeses, and hats" :)

She's beautiful!
