There is no big doctor's appointment at 14 months but Loulie has learned a new thing or two:
- weighing in at 25 lbs and towering at 30 inches. I have to throw in the circumference of her belly--20 inches.
- She can say dog and Bridget. Rarely we get a mama or dada
- When you ask "Where is Loulie?" she points to her shoulder.
- When you ask "Where is Loulie's belly?" she lifts her shirt and pats it.
- Her favorite thing is her baby dolls who go everywhere with us. She rocks and pats them and takes them in and out of their high chair.
- My favorite thing is her eagerness to hug and when you seem tired, she pats your back.
- Oh, and we read about 5,000 times a day--I am not complaining, trust me--I love that she likes reading. But Eric Carle (Spot author) could use a little work on plot development.
I can't believe how times is flying, that the holidays are coming up and just a year ago I was preparing to go back to work. I have to say, life isn't any less hectic than it was in 2009 just a different kind of chaos. I actually started calling preschools today to start Loulie next fall or possibly for a day a week this winter. I had no idea the cut throat operation that is mothers morning out. If you have a two month old--CALL NOW! I know it is in the Lord's hands and that Loulie will end up exactly where she needs to be but geez--I feel like I am applying for college again. One school actually told me I would need to come in with Loulie and meet with the executive director. For what?--is he going to ask Loulie where she plans to be in 5 years? Come on. Anyhow, something will work out. If not, I'll just homeschool--at least until Loulie turns 4 and surpasses my intelligence level;).
