Anna; 16 months

24 Mar

Gosh where it the time going – my baby is growing up far too fast! We finally had her 15 month appointment ( a month late due to our insurance cards taking FOREVER to arrive ) and all is well with her!

Anna’s current stats:

Length : 33 inches ( greater than 90 % )
Weight : 21 3/4 lbs ( 5 % )

Their computers were down but these are the average percentiles. I don’t really see Anna being such a peanut in weight, so in just 2 months we’ll have her 18 month appointment to verify. She received 4 shots – OUCH. We had to catch her up on the US vaccination schedule as they differed a bit from Switzerland. She seems in good spirits so far, but her pour chunky thighs look like they hurt 😦

Up until last week she would walk, but was super hesitant around her brothers ( I wonder why ;)). On the 18th, last Wednesday, something must have clicked and now she’s running all over the place, regardless of the other monsters here! It’s so funny to finally see here walking around.

Anna is quite the talker at such a young age. She will try and say any word you say to her. Her current words that most people can understand are : More, please, thank you (she can also sign these 3), mama, daddy, hello, bonjour (hello in French, aurevoir (by in French), bath, cheese, shoes, ball, and ditty ( not to be confused with Daddy but referring to her blankie and pinkie – it took me some time to figure this one out!)

Her hair is growing so much too and I’m finally able to put piggies in it – that’s a milestone right??

Thanks to her cousin Isabella who is 8 months older – her wardrobe is better than mine and she’s currently wearing 12-18 month clothes.

Anna is such a fun, loving little girl and I can’t wait to watch her grow up – just not too quickly!!


I had to add 2 photos of the boys just because!

    It’s fun hearing about her 16 months stats in comparison to Aden’s. They’re almost the same size! I love seeing pictures of Anna and the boys, too. Amazing how much they’re growing up. Anna is looking more “toddler-ish” and resembles the boys more. And, Henry! Oh my goodness is he getting big. Excited to see you guys soon. Hopefully we can get something on the calendar.
