Hadley Kate - 1st Year Stats


She lives in these onesies - seriously

Weight/Height/Head:  Today she weighed 22lbs, 7 ounces (75th percentile) and was 29" long (50th percentile).  Her head was 46cm, not sure of the percentile.  

Hair:  Still curly blonde - where did I get a curly, blonde-headed baby from?!?  

Eyes: Blue as can be

Diapers: In disposables she's still in size 4.  Not sure how to measure sizes in cloth diapers?  We switched over to cloth last month and so far I've loved it!  It's honestly not as much work as I thought it would be.  Still dealing with a bit of a stench in her bedroom and I've tried everything - open pail, closed pail, baking soda, air fresheners....I don't really want to put the pail in the bathroom so for now it will just be a little stinky in her room until I can figure something out.

Clothes: Still all over the place - mainly 12-18 months, though I did buy her first 2T item (a fleece fall jacket).  


Eating: Now that she's 1 this has changed big time!  We're doing three 6-7oz bottles of whole milk every day - one when she wakes up, one before her afternoon nap and one at bedtime.  It's been a bit of a tough transition as I was trying to only give her three 5oz bottles a day, but she still seemed to want more milk and at the advice of my doctor I'm giving her as much as I think she needs for now.  It's still a huge cutback from 32oz a day, but I think 22 or so ounces is good for now.  I will try to cut down more over time.  She's also eating 3 good meals a day with 2 snacks in there.  Some of her favorite foods are grapes, strawberries, peas, cheese and pasta.  Honestly, the girl eats everything I give her, pretty much!  For snacks I use lots of the organic packaged stuff, like Teensy Fruits, Mum Mums, Ella's Kitchen biscuits and "fingers".  Also good 'ol Cheerios are a staple in our house :)


Sleeping: Still just "eh" - she naps consistently twice a day, between 9-9:30 and 1-1:30, and goes to bed between 8-9pm.  We're still dealing with middle of the night wake-ups, though honestly the last couple months have been SO busy and we've been traveling, and my sister stayed with us so Hadley slept in our room, so it may be all of that that's affecting her.  Most mornings she wakes up right around 7:30, and thankfully always wakes up in a good mood!  


Milestones: 


  • Takes tiny steps!  
  • Climbing all.over.everything.  She's figured out how to climb out of her walker, and if she has any kind of foot-step (toy, dog, laundry basket, etc) she is climbing on top of it!
  • Ate honey and almond butter...two of the "1 year" foods!  She did just fine :) 
  • Tonight while she was taking a bath the puppy ran in the bathroom and I said, "There's Cash!" and she started saying "'Ash? 'Ash?" I am totally one of those moms who needs to hear them practically speak a sentence before declaring that they're talking, but it was clear as day!  She's actually doing a fair amount of mimmicing these days.  
I think that's it....??  The doctor we saw today (not our typical doctor, she's out on maternity leave) was saying that typically babies find their walking mobility and their words come afterwards.  Sometimes it feels like she should be doing all this STUFF and if she doesn't have many changes from one month to the next it's easy to feel like, "Is something wrong?!"  (ok, I'm a paranoid mom so most probably don't feel that way!) but I know she is right on track.  She's not breaking any records or displaying behavior of a 15 or 18 month old but I have honestly never cared about having the most advanced child.  She's happy and healthy, that's all I need.  And that's what I got :)
