Today, February 4th, Ari is exactly fourteen months old. She is such a goof! Right now, her favorite colors are red and hot pink. She says mama, dada, nee-nee (water), ni-ni (night-night), tick-oh (tickle), auma (Gramma/Aunty Tam, her favorite aunt), mmm (food), na-na (nummies), and a few other words that you can only decipher in context, like potato. And probably a few more that I’m forgetting! She recently found out I have two boobs, and she always wants to switch from one to the other every time she nurses! She also likes to lovingly pat the one she’s not nursing at, just to make sure it’s still there. It’s so cute!!
She’s doing really well with naming body parts…she doesn’t do her own too well, but she knows tummies, bellybutton, boobs, mouth, chin, eyes, nose (her favorite!), ears, hair, head, hand, feet, toes. She’s got four teeth on the top and three on the bottom (the fourth is ALMOST through). I think she’s getting a molar too because her gum is red and she’s been grumpy/non-sleepy lately! I had her amber necklace on that worked like a charm for her other teeth, but it’s getting too small and I haven’t had the $$ yet to get a new one.
Her favorite song in the world is Psych’s theme song! Whenever we get to the “PSYCH you out in the end” Scottie tosses her in the air on “psych” and she LOVES it! She’s taken a few steps too…I still haven’t seen it yet, it’s just been with my siblings in law!
She HATES clothes, sleeping with blankets, and baths. She loves being naked (when I say naked I mean with a diaper, which she’s also not thrilled about!).
She thinks coffee mugs ARE coffee! When I say I’m going to get coffee she points at coffee mugs!
She loves snuggling with Daddy! <3
She has the most adorable bedhead!
She likes to see what’s going on!
She gives hugs and kisses…her hugs are sooo cute, if you ask for a hug and she wants to give you one, she’ll lay her head on you and hum contentedly like we do when we hug her! She’s doing really well standing, and gets to standing in the middle of the room now. She’s taken a few accidental steps…I’m still waiting for the on-purpose end-of-the-beginning steps!
I’ve got a bunch of super cute videos on my youtube channel! Have a look-see and leave me a comment
