12-Month Stats...and SHOTS!

Kyra loves walking with her push toys!
Taking a couple of her little "baby steps"

Kyra had her 12-month check up back on Valentine's Day, and here are her latest stats:

Weight: 22lbs.
Height: 30.5 inches
Head Circumference: 44.5cm

We ended up splitting her shots over 2 visits, so she tearfully suffered through 2 shots and a needle TB test at the first visit, and 3 more shots on the second visit. Luckily, she won't have to get another shot for another few months. Kyra, her Mommy, and her Daddy, have all been fighting off colds over the last week or so (Kyra's luckily only had a few minor cold symptoms that only lasted a brief time). Kyra's also been gradually transitioning to milk recently (later this week, she'll be at half milk/half formula combinations). Tomorrow we'll try switching her morning bottle to a sippy cup. Assuming it goes smoothly, there will be only the bedtime bottle left to switch to a cup. Wish us luck!

Kyra's also been working hard at trying to walk lately! She's not walking officially yet, but she's taking more and more series of steps at a time - I think the current record is 7 tiny baby steps one after another. I have no idea when she'll decide to take on walking as a her primary method of transportation, but it could be soon! She absolutely loves walking around with a hand on furniture or while holding Mommy or Daddy's hand. I'm selfishly not ready for her to be an official toddler, but I'd better hurry up and adjust to that change! Where did my little tiny baby go?

It's been a busy and exciting February, and we're looking forward to many fun things ahead in March! First up, Kyra will be attending the 2nd Birthday party for her friends Kyra and Dylan Roodsari (we had fun going to their 1st Birthday party last year when our Kyra was just 3 weeks old!), followed by a bumble bee-themed Birthday party for her cousins Izzy (turning 2) and Mia and Maddie (turning 6!!). Later in March, Kyra's BFF Natasha will turn 1, and we'll be celebrating at her party in early April! All these little ones are growing up so fast! We're also excited to be celebrating Kyra's "Auntie Joliene," who recently got engaged to Ron Anavim! Congratulations to Joliene and Ron! We couldn't be happier for you!

Have a wonderful it Spring yet? We could use a little warmth and sunshine after all this cold and rainy weather!


  1. I love watching Kyra venture away from her handhold and begin to walk to her destination. Sometimes she makes it. She is such a sweetie.

  2. Thanks for the shout out!!!! I love you, cuz I told you so!

  3. Go Kyra, go! Pretty soon, she will be a walking machine! Can't wait to see you guys on Sunday at K & D's party!
