The official one-year stats

Height: 33 in

Weight: 30 lbs.

Head: 19 ½ inches

All in the 97th percentile

Our to-do list is to phase out the bottle and heavy-duty sleep training (establishing a strict bedtime routine). The doctor suggested phasing out the pacifier too, but I don’t think anyone in our house in ready to give that up.

This all is very new territory for us. We did very minimal sleep training with Scarlett and at a much earlier age. She seemed to get it after a few nights. I know that it won’t be that easy with Sully, which is one of the reasons that we’ve been putting it off. Eliminating the bottle was equally easy. I gave her a sippy cup with milk in it on the day after her first birthday. After handing it back to me a few times, she just accepted it and moved on. Lastly, Scarlett was never into binkies – as much as we wanted her to be!

I’ll keep you updated!

  1. Wow. Good luck. Feel free to call if you want pointers. The book SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT by Jodi Mindell is the best of the bunch.
