I think she has 19.  Hopefully I will be able to check in more detail soon…or perhaps when we take her for her first dental checkup soon.  Meanwhile, this is what I think she has: 9 bottom teeth (3 incisors, 2 canines, 4 molars) and  (maybe) 10 upper teeth (4 incisors, 2 canines and 4 molars).

  • Is attempting to walk up and down the stairs on her own, while holding on to the balustrade.  Scary!!

  • Will carry her stool over to the sink and climb on it to wash hands.
  • She will try her best to wriggle out of her onesie jammies


Communication and Social Skills


  • My favorite part of her development this month was when she distinctly and clearly called in a sweet voice, “Mommy!!” It has been very consistent now and errr…quite hard for me to say no to.
  • She knows most of her animal sounds, but somehow according to Emma, the cow is quite a “scary” animal!

Food and Feeding


Loves rice, especially chicken rice and barbecued pork rice.  She appears to be slightly allergic to grapes though…it’s odd, because I have fed her grapes before and she was fine.  I will try again in a few weeks’ time.
