13 & 14 Months old!

Since I missed a 13 month update, I figured I'd just combine them. Caroline is learning so many new things everyday that it's difficult to keep up with. Here are her monthly facts x2:

*She is still talking non-stop and has quite a few "real" words: Mama, Dada, Ma (Max), Wowo (Roro, my sister), bye bye, hi, thank you, Dora, map, Mouse (Mickey Mouse), quack quack, woof, nana (banana), bubble, pop, shhh, uh oh (her favorite!), all done, night night (another favorite!). She will point to things and say "what that?".

*She uses some signs: all done, more, cookie, milk.

*She weighs 21 pounds.

*She has 10 teeth (just cut 2 top molars about 3 weeks ago).

*She loves to eat pizza, corn on the cob, macaroni and cheese, cookies/animal crackers, chocolate, green beans, any kind of fruit, peanut butter and grilled cheese sandwiches, and mashed potatoes.

*She walks all over the place (not running yet, thank goodness!) and loves to climb stairs every chance she gets.

*She is in love with her wagon and climbs in and out a million times a day.

*She loves stuffed animals, baby dolls, and balls. She gives her babies (and Max) hugs and kisses all the time.

*She will come up to you and lay her sweet head on your leg to give you some lovin'.

*She's doing great drinking milk out of a sippy cup (but not a straw cup--those are for water according to my particular little girl).

*She's moved up to the Wobbler class at daycare.

*She's going to be a bookworm like the rest of my family--woo hoo!!

*She loves to dance during the hot dog dance at the end of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Caroline has had 7 ear infections since July and will be getting tubes on March 10. I'm not nervous about it (yet) because I am ready for her to be able to hear clearly and not have to be on antibiotics every month. She also started running a mysterious nightly low grade fever in November. Our doctor finally sent us to have some blood work done, and we found out that Caroline might have something wrong with her thyroid and that her ANA count is a little wacky. This could be transient from all the ear infections and antibiotics. They're just not sure so we're scheduled to meet with a rheumatologist in Gainesville on March 8. I'm hoping and praying this is all tied to her ears and will resolve itself after she gets the tubes. If you think about it, can you please say a little prayer that this isn't something she's going to have to deal with her whole life. Thanks so much!!
