Thirteen Months

I have finally decided that she is mine.

It took over a year, but the decision was finally made. She is just like her momma. 
See if you can decide how I determined that she was mine. You might just see a common thread in the post that follows.

The blue eyes are officially gone. They are still a dark hazel. She is sweet as pie, sassy as a teenager, precious as can be...and stubborn as a mule!


She has now been 'walking' for about a month. She started off taking 2-3 steps. Then she moved on up to about 6-8. She then moved to 10+. She can now make it across an entire room.

In fact, she will throw her head back in a fit of rage if you try to make her walk.  Have you seen a 12-month old throw a temper tantrum?  Because she does.  The boys never did that.


I have tried and tried to record this large milestone. Over and over again. It isn't happening. It just isn't. I have spent an entire month trying, and I give up.

I really think that she prefers to crawl. She feels very "baby" when she crawls, and knows that we will lift her up off the floor. Third child syndrome?  Her brother doesn't like for her to be on the floor, and he (Jaydon) is starting to carry her more and more. She likes loves that.


Amazing how I have had all three extremes with my kiddos.

Let's review, shall we?

Jaydon - Never crawled. Did all physical milestones early. Took his first steps at 8 months, and was walking alone by 10 months.

Jacoby - Never sat still. Did everything on time, or a little early. Crawled at record speeds by 7 months. Was walking alone around 11 months, and hasn't stopped for a millisecond since then.

Jilian - Never decided what she wanted to do. (Is she a real woman or what?  Can't make decisions.) Sat up at 6 months, crawled at 7 months...and is still crawling.


All three children were made by the same two people. Funny how the gene thing works.

I am not worried. I know that all kids are different. I know that she is not behind. I know that she is still way ahead of the curve. I know that she is her own person.  I know that she will be talking in complete sentences by next week the way she already babbles and says quite a few words with meaning.

I also know that I have a long road ahead because that little girl SO knows how badly we want her off our dirty (not on purpose - it just stays dirtier than I would like with three kids and a dog!) floor, and she refuses.

Happy 13-Months, Sassy! S.T.U.B.B.O.R.N

She is precious! Wish I could go back to that time in my daughter's life. I have 2 older boys and then a surprise little girl with a name very similar to your daughter's, her name is Lillian Kate.
Enjoyed your blog!
