18 months

Cameron is a year and a half old! So crazy.

Actual age: 18 months

Adjusted age: 15 months

Weight: 22 lb 9 oz

Height: 29.5 in!

Diaper size: 4

Clothing size: 18 months

Medications/medical concerns: Cam still has the rash on her face. We are also treating a raging double ear infection :( she is on antibiotics though and getting much better.

Sleep: She sleeps from 8 until 8 or 9 in the morning. She naps from about 1 to 2:30 or 3. This has remained pretty constant for a while.

Eating: Not eating as well. She is refusing stuff she didn't used to refuse. She still loves fruit though. Bananas, mandarin oranges, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, pineapple, peaches, and grapes. She could eat only fruit and be happy. She has also been loving ham and cheese. And she will always eat pasta! Just like her mom.

Developmental milestones: Not much new is happening. Still babbling like crazy and saying some words. No real new words though. She is getting faster and more stable with walking. She is starting to run a little bit. She is also really starting to remember more things and has better problem solving skills. She can do simple puzzles and remembers what pages of books there are textures for her to feel. She understands a LOT now. I can tell her to "go ride your elephant!" and she goes and gets on her rocker or I can tell her "bring me the book" and she will go get a book to read with me.

Teeth: Still 8 officially, but unofficially 10. She has two molars on the top that are starting to break through. Some of the corners are either broken through or just seconds away from breaking through. She also has her two bottom molars coming in but they are not as far along. I can see where they are coming up in her gums.

Best moment this month: Taking Cameron to her first swim lesson! I really enjoyed it and she has a BLAST! I am excited to be able to take her every week. She absolutely loved the water.

We had her 18 month appointment today as well. I will update on that later but it went awesome! She is so amazing.

To an adult, the following puzzle seems so simplistic. To a toddler, this takes a lot of cognitive maturity and understanding of problem solving. I am so proud of my little girl! She is SO smart!!

Parents of Preemies Day

Today is the 2nd annual Parents of Preemies Day sponsored by Graham's foundation. It is a day to celebrate parents of preemies. I am lucky enough to be one of those parents. Lucky? Of course I'm not "lucky" to have gone through the heartache, but frankly I am lucky to have grown from the experience. Some of the lessons I have learned are invaluable. Cameron has shown me true strength, taught me true love. She is the best. Really and truly the best.

Photo dump

Cameron's smile is so contagious. I've never seen such an awesome smile! Honestly. I have a hard time narrowing down photos because her smile is just a bit different in each picture and I love it so much! Anyways, here are the latest. They are adorable.
