14 Months Old

14 months. Where does the time go?

New things Lane's doing (go here for last month's list):

*says "nite nite" more frequently than last month, and "ne-ow, ne-ow" is often sounding more like "meow, meow." She says "meow, meow" every time she sees a cat in person or in a book or on tv. I think it's her first "word," other than mama and dada.
*is babbling more frequently...trying to "talk" more often.
*uses sign language for "eat," "milk," "water," and "shoes."
*has six teeth: four on top, two on bottom. No signs of any new ones coming anytime soon.
*waves bye-bye regularly and sometimes blows a kiss as well.
*is fascinated with putting things around her neck: anything with a strap, her blankie, our underwear, her shirts, etc.

Checking out the seagulls through the ferry window.

*is completely weaned. :-(
*hauls her overnight diaper down the hallway and throws it in the kitchen trash each morning.
*will give you things she's put in her mouth if you look at her and say "yucky, yucky," or "give me what's in your mouth, Lane."
*can correctly identify her nose and ears.
*does motions for the gorilla and elephant in Eric Carle's From Head to Toe.
*still wearing 9-month and 12-month clothes.
*just got a pair of size 5 shoes. They're a bit big, but much better than the almost-too-small-3's we just retired. Considering she only wore the 3's for about two months, we figure she'll be fitting into the 5's well by May or June.
*can climb onto our couches without help.

I love this photo because it shows her "fun" personality, which I'm forever trying to capture and forever failing at!

*likes to hide things: under the couch, under the rug, in the slit between the cabinets and refrigerator, etc.
*can open drawers and cabinets.
*loves to be outside and frequently goes to the door and waves "bye-bye," indicating that she wants to go outside.
*can get the circle shape in her shape-sorter all the time. Can sometimes get other shapes in as well, but usually gets frustrated and gives up before she meets success.
*can drink from a straw.
