Emery Rose is now 16 months old! She's been growing so much lately and is so much fun!
She really started walking all over at about 14 months and is now into everything! Emery loves playing with all the toys that her siblings are playing with. She loves her baby doll, balls, coloring, music, putting on clothes, and fake animals.
Emery tries repeating many words. She will say niney, mama, yeah, and dada. She makes animal sounds for a dog, cow, duck and occasionally a cat. She knows the following body parts: eyes, belly, hair, tongue, teeth, toes, hands, and nose. She still uses the signs 'more,' 'all done,' and 'book.' Emery understands so much these days.
She continues to have a mouth full of teeth and is currently working on another one. I'm hoping she will be done for awhile, but we will see.
Emery eats pretty well, but has been teething so much lately, that it is hard to tell if she is really picky or not. She loves ketchup and wants to dip everything in it. She also insists on using a spoon or fork and typically makes a huge mess! Emery does pretty well drinking out of an open cup, but prefers using a straw sippy cup.
Emery goes to bed around 7:30 and will sleep until 7:30 or 8:00 in the morning. She is now down to 1 nap a day and usually sleeps for around 2 to 2 and a half hours (and sometimes less than 2).
This girl is so sweet. She's already taken on so many nicknames….we are currently calling her 'Em' or 'Emmy.' Only time will tell which ones sticks! She keeps us on our toes and isn't the easiest kiddo, but she is so much fun….we can't imagine life without her!
