Charlotte’s Twelve Month Update


And just like that, our baby is a year old! People tell you how fast it flies by, but you can’t really understand it until you’ve lived it!

at one month: 21 inches
at three months: 23.5 inches
at four months: 24.5 inches
at six months: 26 inches
at nine months: 27 inches
at twelve months: 28.5 inches

at six months: 14 lb 10 oz
at nine months: 17 lb 3 oz
at twelve months: 18 lb 8 oz

Clothing Size: 9 months and up!

– She turned one. That seems like the biggest milestone of all!

Likes: Playing with her toys, snuggling with mama in the bed, seeing her friends at Circletime 😉

Dislikes: Being told no! I think we’re in trouble…

Sleep: Pretty decent for the most part. She takes a couple of naps a day that are hit or miss but usually sleeps through the night. I almost always wake up with a foot in my face though!

Best Moment: Seeing her eat her big cupcake on her birthday! It was so cute!!

Worst Moment: Getting her one-year vaccines and having an upset stomach at her doctor appointment yesterday. I know that’s past her twelve-month mark, but it was rough!

Eating: Anything we put in front of her! I always know when she doesn’t feel well because she doesn’t want to eat!

Mommy Update: I really am starting to enjoy motherhood. The first few months were really tough, and a lot of the time, I wondered if I was cut out for it. I know I’ll wonder that many, many more times during her lifetime, but I feel like we’ve gotten to know each other better, and I’m trying to trust my instincts more often.

Overall: This is my last monthly update. I thought about doing them for the next couple of years, but I think I’ll close the door on these and do something else fun on here as she grows up. I hope that she’ll read these someday and know how much her dad and I love her!

We love you, our strong, brave, smart, beautiful, baby girl!
