twelve months {emma layne}

Emma Layne,
You turned twelve months last week on February 6, 2016.
You weigh 22 lbs, 6 oz (84th %ile)
You are 29.25 inches long (53rd %ile)
Your head is still in the 97th %ile, measuring at 47.5 cm (and the nurse measured you three times to be safe).
You have dark hair and hazel-ish eyes. You are mostly in 24 month clothes and outgrowing the last of your 18 month pieces. You wear cloth diapers at home at size 5 diapers at night and when we are out.
No teeth have made an appearance yet. You are a great eater, but you are starting to get picky about some foods (thanks to a bad experience with beef stew). You frequently eat more than Sophia does and toss any food you don't want to eat to Hunter. You are nursing on demand still, but I am not offering if you do not ask. You drink a little milk and water from cups throughout the day.
You are getting more mobile and have the hardest time being still (which made pictures a bit challenging this month). Diapers changes are next to impossible right now. You are pulling yourself up all the time, but just figured out how to get yourself down. You will take a few cruising steps, but not often. You still dance all the time and love to clap, high five, play chase, and give big wet sloppy kisses.
This month was awful for nighttime sleep. You had many nights where you were up for hours and other nights where you would wake multiple times to eat. Naps were also inconsistent. Hopefully sleep gets better soon.
You are so chatty and we call you our little monkey with all of the little noises you make. You consistently say ten words: hi, bye, muh (milk), dun dah (Hunter), nigh nigh, dah (dog), wuf wuf, ma ma, da da, and uh oh, You are inconsistent with other words and some I can't figure out. We are still doing some sign language, but you do not use it on your own very often.
You are so calm and sweet, but your temper has shown itself more frequently. You get into quite a tizzy when you don't get what you want.
You love to point for what you want, dump things out of containers and then put them back in, put on shoes and socks (as long as they are not yours), and play with any toys you are not supposed to have. 
Sophia and you have been able to play more lately and it is so fun to watch the two of you laugh and interact with each other. She prefers your outfits to match and play on her terms.
Baby Sunshine, this year with you in our lives has flown by and we have enjoyed every minute (well, maybe not the sleepless nights, but certainly the daylight hours). We love you right up to the moon and back.
Sophia's twelve month post is still sitting in my draft folder. Once I sort through pictures I will post it along with a comparison picture. {Highlights: she had four teeth, three words, wearing 9 and 12 month clothing, was sleeping through the night, and walking.) Read more here.
