1 Year Old!

Kaleia Shalom at one year:
  • Weight: 18# 6oz. (10th percentile)
  • Height: 29.5 inches (50th percentile)
  • Teeth: 6 (two bottom and four top), but working on #7
  • Words: Shoosh (soother), Bye-bye, Uh-oh, (Mama, Papa, Kiss have made an occasional appearance but are not consistent)
  • Signs: All Done, Milk, More, Nigh-Night, Bye-Bye, Change
  • Kaleia is not walking yet, but she rapidly scurries across the ground by either bear-crawling or with a knee-foot-combo crawl. When she pauses, stands, neck out-stretched, she reminds us of a meerkat surveying her land before taking off again.
I'm not sure about her developmental checkpoints, because her doctor's appointment is not until September. I do know that she loves to throw things. Her interest in books is increasing. She now points at objects that interest her and can point to family members correctly. She pretends to talk on the phone and LOVES babies! At one, Kaleia is sweet and laid-back until something does not go her way, then she passionately lets the offender know of her displeasure. We're looking forward to the adventure of year 2, with all of its special moments and parenting lessons.
