Seventeen Month Update

We hope everyone had the most festive & fun Christmas!!  We are extending the celebration one more day over here, Waverly Maye is seventeen months!  Happiest birthday to our best gift ever. :)
Yes, we still consider month birthdays real birthdays, because why not?!!
 
 
Stats:  No doctor's appointment, but guessing 22 lbs. & possibly 30 inches?!  Thinking we may have made it to the 20-range for length after 17 months ... :)  Waverly is still wearing mostly 12-18 month old clothes, with some 9 month bottoms & 2T tops mixed in as dresses.  I am loving the fact that now that she is a little older, we don't have to box up clothes after every few months!  Did anyone else find that painful?! 

 
Current Words & Other Milestones:  Waverly's two favorite words have not changed, bogger (the dog) & dada.  Other most commonly used words include ice, "side" for outside, hiii (to anyone & everyone, especially other little kids) & baby.  She has the cutest dance moves which pretty much melt me everytime & has successfully figured out how to swim like a fish during bathtime.  This month, Waverly has added her belly button to the body parts she knows, uses silverware like a boss & can handle an Iphone better than I can.  Yea, I'm pretty sure we are going to start applying to colleges next month.  She is learning THAT fast & it blows.my.mind. :)
 

 Teeth & Sleep:  No new teeth this month & sleep, for the most part, has been great!
 
Favorite Foods:  Waverly still loves "fiiiish" (goldfish), pasta salad, mac & cheese & most lunch meats.  She loves to eat & usually does with no issue at all, until she is "alllll-done."  At that point, she starts feeding anything & everything to the dog.  Or at least holding the food in his face before quickly pulling it back.  That little trickster, I think she is going to have quite the sense of humor. :)
 

 Favorite Toys & Activities:  A new favorite this month is Sesame Street.  It's more of an obsession.  I really never thought this always-on-the-go lady would ever like TV, but something about Elmo just draws her in.  We ended up recording every episode that plays on DVR, but girlfriend knows what she wants!  Waverly has two favorite episodes & yes, every person in our house has them memorized beginning to finish.  Other loves are her "la-las," cell phones, her babies & being outside!
 

Least Favorite Activities:  For the most part, we have not seen as many tantrums as last.  The one thing that will set her off without fail each & everytime is the cell phone.  I have tried to fake her out with play phones, but she knows the real deal & there has been more than one moment that I nearly gave in, drove to Verizon & signed her up for a plan.  Kidding ... sort of. :)
 
Extra Comments:  This month has been our busiest yet with the holidays, but definitely the most fun!  Toddler life is totally chaotic & definitely has its challenges, but I really would like to push the pause button RIGHT now!  Everyday brings new excitement, new words, new moves ... I just LOVE it!!!  And her, of course!
 

We are so excited to share highlights from our holiday soon & to hear updates from all of you.  How perfect is it that we are already one day from another weekend?!  I will take it, more time with my seventeen-month old!!

  2. Boxing up clothes is the worst. I'll admit I cry every time. We gave a bunch to my friend who just had a baby so it's been fun to see Clay's new friend in his (my) favorite outfits!

  3. Packing clothes away is horrible! Especially the outfits that I really loved. She is so full of personality already!!
