13 Months

We have been very preoccupied with moving this month and probably haven't worked with Stella enough. Nevertheless, she is making progress and has adapted very well to her new surroundings. Unfortunately there will be a 2 month lapse in her therapies as we transition to the services in Indiana.

Stella is eating a lot more these days and I can tell that she is getting heavier. She feeds herself many finger foods and is drinking several bottles of cow's milk daily. We nurse at night and once and a while during the day. I am feeling fairly ready to wean her, and it's nice to know that she will easily take cow's milk. We are trying to work on a sippy cup but it has been slow going.

Stella is very active and often doesn't want to be held. She is sitting very well and also enjoys standing (supported) and walking while we hold her hands. She has started getting on her hands and knees and rocking. She laughs and thinks it is so fun. She is also babbling quite a bit more.

These pictures were taken when she was about 12 1/2 months old.
