The update is actually from February 14...a month before we had seen her little face. Here's what we know about Isabel (S) at 14 months: she weighs 9.5 kg or 21 lbs, she is 76 cm/2 ft 6 in tall, her head and chest circumference are both 47 cm, she is walking well and likes to climb, she is potty trained (uh huh doing a little dance! although they prepared us she may regress), she still takes 4 8oz bottles a day, naps every day at 10 for three hours, she now has 4 teeth on bottom and 4 on top.
As thrilled as I was to learn about all of that, I absolutely ate up all the info they gave me about "her". Her foster mother says she is a cheerful little girl, and always in a good mood. She demonstrates a stubborn side too, they are trying to train her to drink from a cup which apparently she doesn't like so she refuses to do it, but if given the straw she insists on she has no trouble at all. She likes to play with her foster brother and sister, who are older one is 13/14 the other 11/12, which Peyton and Ian are excited about. They reported that she likes music, and to play peek a boo, and "cell phone"! I know, what?! Thinking the older kiddos have something to do with this. The social worker commented that she loved having her picture taken, so we may have a diva on our hands.
|Such a sweetie|
