Miranda waiting for her 15-month appointment
Miranda is tall. At least for now-- I didn't hit my short stride until I was in 6th grade, and I wasn't officially a short girl until 8th. But I was never a tall kid. Miranda is currently rocking the 95 percentile at 32.5 inches! As a result, she's out-grown almost all of her baby clothes and she's wearing 2T now. She's 75th percentile in weight at 24 pounds and 15 ounces though that part is more surprising because she looks pleasantly chubby to us. She's got 7-working-on-8 teeth.
Earlier this month...
Almost. got. it.
She dances. Oh she dances any time there's music. She still waves one arm in the air, and now sometimes she tries to sing along. She sings cucarahhh (cucaracha) or the bah bah refrain of bah-bah black sheep, but if she doesn't know the words, she just makes up some sounds to go with it.
She get up at 7:30 am or 8 am. She takes one nap a day around 11 am, except the days she either gets up too early or takes a really short first nap, and then there's a second nap around 2:30-3 pm.
Just because it's a nap, doesn't mean you shouldn't look fab.
Feeling refreshed, post-nap.
She insists on eating with a spoon or fork now, or at least having one to use to move the food around. She is a lady.
Watching James and Miranda play together is amazing. They totally love each other. James is very patient with her, except for when he's not. It's funny to see how different it is than I imagined it would be. They play a lot of a sort of Simon Says, where he chases her around imitating her. This role suits her and she's become an evil ring leader. Of course, she also provides a convenient excuse to do all the things he wants to do. He says it was the "bad baby." There are no clean hands here.
