14 Months

Here we are at 14 months and a few days with our sweet Hannah Beth. I absolutely love this age. She is so busy exploring and I just love watching the new things she learns each day. Let's see what you are up to at 14 months, HB.
You are FULL of personality and a chatty little thing. You are trying so hard to join in our conversations these days. You say "Hi" to just about everyone. Some of your words include "no!", "thank you", and "bye bye". You are too busy for long snuggles. I usually get a quick hug and kiss before you are off and running to the next toy or trying to get into whatever your brother and sister are doing.
You are not walking yet. You stand and cruise, but are not quite brave enough to let go and walk. I have never seen a baby crawl as fast as you can. You can move across the room in 5 seconds. More than once we have caught you trying to figure out door knobs (great!). I catch you up on your tippy toes reaching for the handle and turning it the best you can. I think you may be our escape artist.
You LOVE LOVE LOVE music and bop and shake every time you hear a tune. As soon as you hear the first note of a song, you start moving to the beat. We all love to watch you dance. Too cute.
You are still a great eater and are drinking happily from your sippy cup. You love cheese, yogurt, eggs, milk, peas, and bananas. You can say "cheese" and sign banana every morning as I get your breakfast ready.

You are sleeping like a champ.  Still taking 2 naps everyday, one at 9:30am and another at 2:00pm.  You love your bath at bedtime and are ready for bed by 6:30pm to 7:00pm.  You are so happy when you wake up (usually around 7:00am). I love to listen to you call for me or just giggle and chat by yourself. 
Such a happy girl!
One of your favorite things right now is reading books. Every night at bedtime you point to the rocking chair and clap when we pick out a book to read. You love to listen and turn the pages. Reading to you each night is one of my favorite times of the day with you. You are loving "Quiet, Loud" and "Good Night, Blue".

Your brother and sister light up your world and they both love you so much. You squeal with glee when I open the car door each day and Hayley climbs in after her morning at school. Luke still makes you laugh like no one else and he loves the laughs you give him. The 3 of you play hide and seek almost every night after dinner. The noise that fills this house makes me one happy Mama.
You are becoming quite attached to your Daddy and have him wrapped around your finger. All you have to do is poke out your sweet lip and he comes running to your rescue. You love when he dances with you and I love to watch. You are one lucky girl to have such an amazing Daddy.

Happy 14 months to our baby girl! Mommy loves you so much.
