14 months

Since I am getting tired, and blogging takes forever, I am just going to sum up month 14 and you can just look at the pictures from the other blogs to see what she looks like! Ha!
She is about 27ish pounds and is crazy long. We are now into size 4 diapers..aah! She is running and into EVERYTHING! She is much more independent and doesn't always want to hold hands to walk anymore. Sitting still is a thing of the joke. She LOVES her "bubba" (paci) and we have to say goodbye to it when we wake up or else it is difficult to get away from her. She has 6 teeth, so we are still waiting on a couple of them to pop out and make our life interesting! She still eats anything and everything, but she prefers to eat on the go. Daddy is the apple of her eye, but she still needs me if she is sad (is it wierd that I kind of enjoy when she is sad so I still get snuggles?). She loves her playdates with friends.
This is a "breakfast playdate" she had with her friend Max and my friend (his mommy) Bethany
 She has started becoming wary of strangers and will not go to just anyone like she used to- she still prefers females to males. We are starting to realize that she has a very tender heart and discipline will be tricky. She pulled on my eyelashes one day and I said "OW!" and it made her so sad that I said that, so she just BAWLED! She understands most little sentences, which makes things more simple for Jon and I. She babbles and babbles loudly when she gets excited. She also will laugh when you're laughing She now can add "please" to sign language known. She knows eyes, toes, nose, hair, teeth, belly button and head (we worked on those on month 13 too). She loves to say "moo" when you say cow and is trying to figure out how to articulate the other animal sounds. Animal sounds and body parts are a big hit around our house. She can stack big blocks and puts several shapes into shape holes in her toy. She can do the spider motion for the "itsy bitsy spider" and claps on cue for "if you're happy and you know it" and loves the song "the wheels on the bus". I honestly cannot remember anything else, but I am sure come three in the morning I will remember other details!

Funny story: Hensley has learned how to put on a "grumpy face" with new people and clear a room! Sweet people will say hello and she will wrinkle her little face. We realized quickly that this became a game when we were in Louisiana for July 4th. She met a billion family members, and I think she just kind of shut down. Grammie took her to the grocery store one day and people would say hello and she would put her grumpy face on, then when they would walk away she would look at Grammie and crack up!! Judy was howling when she told us about it, and sure enough, at dinner that night she would scowl at one of us and then crack up one second later! Oh the drama!! Hopefully I can capture a picture of it soon so you can all appreciate this "stink eye"!

Sweet: It would undoubtedly be meeting and loving all of her family. Meeting my Nana and Papa, her GG, baby Parker, Aunt Lyn and Uncle Doug, our cousin Laura and Justin and new baby Sadie, Uncle Charles and Aunt Donna, cousin Jennifer and baby Grace. Thank you to everyone!
