Logan is almost 14 months old, and growing like a weed.
She is still drinking formula from bottles. :-( We are keeping her on formula until at least 15 months. We will check her weight then, and see if maybe we can begin weaning. She doesn’t drink it from a sippy, because we are designating the sippy only for whole milk. There doesn’t need to be any confusion.
Logan does drink really well from a straw – and the straw sippy is where she gets most of her juice/water. However, we do use a regular sippy for whole milk because eventually she will have to learn to tip it up – just like a regular cup. She doesn’t seem to mind whole milk, so I am hoping the transition will be easy.
Logan eats mostly table food now. Occasionally, I still give her a puree, but that’s just to make sure she gets enough calories and a balanced diet. Her current favorite is a grilled cheese. She also really loves these – she is able to suck like it’s a straw, so she is a pro at it, and it’s great for her! I have ordered them from amazon – seems to be a bit cheaper than the store. We use them a lot if we are going out. They are also great for toddlers/older school age kids for lunch. They are healthy and taste great. I miss making her purees, but it is much easier with her eating table food. Most everything (except restaurants where we order for her off the menu, or at someone’s house) that Logan eats is whole wheat and organic. I am not sure what all I believe to be true about organic/non organic food, but I do know that I do not want Logan exposed to any additional hormones/pesticides. Therefore, when I have the chance, I buy organic.
She still takes two naps a day, and so far is showing no signs of needing to change that. She sleeps for 1-1.5 hours each nap.
She is doing great in therapy. We have been released from speech (for feeding issues) but will be re-evaluated for speech (for language development) at 18 months. Physical Therapy we are still going frequently. She cruises on furniture and stands at toys/furniture, but has yet to let go. They will monitor her until she begins to walk. She has left side weakness, and it will be important to make sure she walks properly. We were told previously that she may need a brace, so we will just have to wait and see. Otherwise, she is doing great!
