Melanie is 19 months old

Pool & Portraits - Summer 2015

Melanie has grown by leaps and bounds since my last update at 1 year. She can now walk on her own and is quickening up her pace! Once she started being confident enough to take those first steps at 15 months, she was off! Just check out the video in my previous blog post.

Other quick updates….

LOVES TO SAY:

She can also say some animal names (duck, rabbit, pig), animal sounds (woof, baa, meow).

HER PERSONALITY

After our trip to Hawaii, Melanie was a changed person. LOL. Actually, our trip disrupted her daily routine a bit too much i think, and she got really clingy. She also may have been suffering from heat stroke/effects from her vaccinations. Anyway, more on that in the Hawaii post, but basically she refused to bathe or eat like a normal child. This lead me to look up some parenting books, and i came across one called “The Child Whisperer” – it identifies children with their personality type and explains what methods are effective at parenting that type. Melanie is definitely an “Sensitive” child. (more emotional, needs time to think things through and ask questions). Vincent is a “Determined” child (very physical, once he sets his mind to something, it needs to be achieved, cannot wait). Could they be any more opposite?! LOL.

GROWING WELL?

At her 18 month check up, Melanie was only at 10% growth. 21.5 lbs. Small for her age. She doesnt really eat much so i am not surprised. The doc said to give her pediasure, which we did, and she hated and then started refusing any milk, which freaked us out. Now she is back to drinking milk from a bottle, so we’re just letting it go. Better than no milk at all!

She has lots of teeth now! 6 upper and 6 lower for 12 teeth total. So she has her first set of molars. She didnt have any trouble teething, but still drooling a bit. But less than before, so sometimes we can manage without a bib!
