16 months!

Cameron is 16 months old! (this is 3 days late!)

Actual age: 16 months

Adjusted age: 13 months

Weight: 21 lb, 3 oz

Height: Not sure, probably around 29 inches

Diaper size: 4

Clothing size: Mostly 18 months

Medications/medical concerns: Small rash on her face, possible eczema, possibly from her pacifier, we are using a steroid cream on it and taking away the paci. No significant medical concerns though.

Sleep: Naps from 1-3, sleeps from 7:30 or 8 until 9 or 9:30. We are taking away her pacifier so the past few days have been rough. She is crying for a while before she falls asleep. It breaks me heart into a million pieces to listen to her so distraught but it has to be done.

Eating: She loves to eat! Her favorite foods recently are egg salad sandwiches and PB&J. She loves strawberries, raspberries, and mandarin oranges. She also loves carrots, green beans, cherry tomatoes, and potatoes. She eats a banana every morning for breakfast. When we go out to eat I usually get her a grilled cheese, she eats the whole thing! She can eat a whole piece of pizza too. She also loves fries when we go out to eat. She is doing well with drinking too, usually drinks about a full sippy cup of milk per day plus some water.

Developmental milestones: WALKING! Cameron is officially walking :) Not primarily as a mode of transportation but she walks quite a bit throughout the day. She is also waving bye-bye and doing some pointing. She started trying to clap yesterday. I don't think she has any words yet but I see it happening soon. We'll see! Cameron has started true temper tantrums this month. If you take her away from something she wants she has a complete melt down. She is also starting to figure out how to use toys as they are supposed to be used and is putting less stuff in her mouth. She will put things in a box (or balls in a slot etc) if you ask her to or give things to you if you ask her for them.

Teeth: 6, none coming that I can see

Best moment this month: When Cameron took her first real steps!!!

Growing up

Cameron is becoming a little lady. A TODDLER. I can't believe it. She is officially toddling, otherwise known as walking (well, sort of). She doesn't walk as her primary mode of transportation but she is walking quite a bit, especially if you set her up. Walking is such a special milestone to me. It is THE major milestone in a child's life I think. When Cameron was first born people would always say things like "you'll forget all about this when you are chasing after your toddler". I hoped that would be the case, but there was a real possibility Cameron would never walk or toddle. I just remember thinking that I may never get to see her walk. But anyways, she is awesome and all that sad stuff is behind us. And now she is walking! She is adorable doing it. She is obviously still in the zombie stage and I love it! So without further ado, here is a video!

So that's the big news. I know I've been a terrible blogger but really not much is going on. I have not been doing much photography either but I decided today to get back into it. I'm mad at myself that I don't have many pictures of Cameron over the past couple of months (or any on Christmas) but I promise myself that I will get back to regular photography. I started back up with it today. And wow, can I just say that Cameron looks like such a big girl? When looking back at the photos I could not believe how grown up she looks. Not only is she walking but she just looks like a toddler. She doesn't even look like a baby anymore. She is losing the baby face and gaining more of her own unique features. It's so interesting to watch her face change as she grows. And as always, she looks absolutely beautiful. She is quite a stunner :)
