Evelyn – 14 Months

Today Evelyn is 14 months old. Its incredible to see how much she has grown. She is walking and running, climbing and being a little monkey. She has 4 bottom teeth now and 2 top, about to cut a third. She still isn’t talking much, she can say one syllable things – da, ca, ah, ee, and she screams MA when I piss her off. Since she isn’t really talking we started working on sign language again. She surprised me this week and signed “more” after breakfast, and was elated when I understood her and gave her a banana. She can also sign thank you, but she doesn’t use it in context, only when prompted. She is also waving hello, and has been much more interested in strangers. 

Evey will eat about anything, we have reintroduced strawberries and had no reaction. Pickles make her face turn red though, so we will be avoiding them for a little while. One of her favorite foods is spaghetti squash, she shovels it into her mouth by the handful. She usually has vanilla Greek yogurt or eggs for breakfast. Her favorite snacks are cheerios and gold fish. She eats whatever we have for dinner, lots of chicken. 

We let her watch TV sometimes and she loves Yo Gabba Gabba, she will grab the remote and do a “dancy dance” and we know she wants us to turn it on so she can dance. She still likes Sesame Street, but not as much as Yo Gabba Gabba. 
We had our first urgent trip to the doctor a couple weeks ago, but I’ll write a separate post about that. 
Overall she is doing really great, growing like a weed, I think she gets taller every day, and she is constantly ‘exploring’ the world around her, and by exploring I mean getting into shit.
