Happy 13 Months Hadley Elizabeth!
This month I want to kind of remember what her schedule is like at this age.
Hadley wakes up around 7 am. She has a cup of milk immediately (She is completely on whole milk and drinks only out of sippy cups).
She eats breakfast between 8 and 9. After that, depending on the day, she and Cady play a lot together. I join in when I can, but I also use the mornings to get stuff done around here.
Between 11 and 12, I start lunch. After lunch, we usually try to have more low key time. Read some books and other quiet activities.
Hadley goes down for a nap at 1. She normally naps for about 2 hours. Most of the time she is awake before Cady, so I use that time to sit with her and talk and play and laugh, one on one.
After Cady wakes up, I’m old news and Cady is the one she is interested in. We eat dinner between 5:30-6:30.
By 6:30, she is very ready to start her bedtime routine. She and Cady like to take a bath together and play. After bath, she immediately heads to bed. She is still having a bit of trouble falling asleep on her own. We rock her for a few minutes to have some cuddle time and wind down time. But she still fusses for a little while after we put her in her crib.
She has basically set this schedule for herself and it works really well.
She is changing so much. I forgot how quickly things change at this age.
I think she has a larger vocabulary right now than Cady did at this time. Her current words (and by words, I mean I know what she is saying. I don’t think anyone else would) are Mama, Dada, Hi, Bye, Doggy, Uh-oh and I swear she has a word for Cady. It doesn’t sound anything like Cady, but I swear that is what she means when she says it.
She is a walker. She can stand up on her own and she loves the independence of walking.
I still don’t have her 1 year stats because I’m a slacker and just scheduled her appointment for next week.
We love you, Hadley Elizabeth!
