Waverly Maye & I hope you are having a festive-filled holiday!
We kicked off the weekend with a Halloween party at Waverly’s kid gym. It was so much fun & pretty much the definition of what Halloween with kids should look like. Waverly Maye wore her costume but because I can’t help myself to keep it a surprise for the big day, I’m going to wait for Thursday. 🙂
On Saturday, we took this cutie kitty to the Boo Zoo.

Stats: 15 month appointment is next week, but we are guessing 22 pounds & 27 inches. (Just looked back on Waverly’s 14 months stats, and we guessed 28 inches, but she clearly wasn’t since my mother-in-law just measured her last week at 27; great things come in small packages!).
Current Words & Other Milestones: Favorite words of the moment are still dada, momma, bogger, ice, uh-oh & hi (while giving kisses & petting our faces, total heart-melter). New words are baby & we are convinced she can say “what’s that?” when she sees something new. This month, we have started working with flash cards each night and are really excited about how much she can understand now. On more than one occasion, we are certain that she has even told us when she needs her diaper changed. Yes, we are obviously convinced our child is a certified genuis! 🙂
Teeth & Sleep: Waverly now has 6 teeth & they are just the cutest! Our sleep was going great each night (7 PM – 7 AM) until this past week. She has woken up the past three consecutive nights & will only go back down while being held. As much as I love her cuddles, I definitely don’t want to fall into that routine so we are hoping this isn’t a “15 month sleep regression” much like the four month one. Cross your fingers for me.
Favorite Foods: Not much has changed here, still loves any & all carbs, goldfish, vanilla wafers, & munching on apples. New to the mix is candy corn, a total mom fail for giving one to her because now she wants them ALL the time. At least I can say she is in the holiday spirit!
Extra Comments: Clearly, I have my hands full with this one. This month has definitely proved that! Yet overall, that is just what makes her Waverly & we wouldn’t have it any other way. Even though I have had fifteen months to fully realize it, I still find myself looking at her in complete disbelief that she is ours. That she was created in my belly & a result of me & my hubby, it really is nothing short of amazing. SHE is really nothing short of amazing. Waverly is our world and has made us the happiest little family.
