I can’t believe that my last Fearless Baby update was in February, when she was 8 months old. How time flies! While 13-month-old Baby has the same silly, happy-go-lucky personality now as she did when I did that last update, she has changed + progressed in so many significant ways.
First, we’ve had some big milestones! At my last update, Baby was just on the verge of crawling. Now, we have a very confident walker on our hands! She gets *such* a thrill about being able to walk around the Farmer’s Market / library / grocery store with us, instead of having to be carried. Our next big change is: teeth! Baby had NONE at my last update, but these days, she’s up to 10 teeth! And with that, came a big change in her eating habits. No longer does she eat purees or ‘baby food’ – she eats 100% ‘regular’ food now, usually having the same things for meals that we do. She’s turned into quite a food lover, + is a big fan of pasta, slow-cooked meats, anything dairy (especially cheese + yogurt), lots of grains (like couscous, farro, + rice), beans, fruits, veggies, smoothies, + more. It’s so fun to introduce her to new foods, + I am so tickled that she likes my home-cooking so much. =) The last big change has been communication. She has become so good at communicating in a combination of words/sounds, sign language, and pointing. It’s amazing how much we can understand each other!
These last few months have been SO incredibly fun, and she has done a ton of growing up, becoming less baby and more toddler with each passing day. I’ll do another update here with pictures when she’s 18 months old! If you’d like Fearless Baby updates before then, you can follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, where I post lots about the little lady!
