Every month after I post Prestyn's monthly milestones I forget to mention what she's received in her P-Packs! P-Packs are something my BFF, Prestyn's Aunt Kari, started for her Month 1! She is the one responsible for making Prestyn's monthly applique onesies! They are nicely made, and perfect for our monthly photo shoots! P-Packs included much more than the monthly onesies! My BFF has been a mom for 3 years so she knows better than I do on "must-haves" for a baby! She was sure to include these things for Prestyn and me! I'm so thankful for her, and her creativity! So here are the P-Packs...I hope I have a picture of every one, and for all you new moms...you need these items!!

Spiffies: Perfect for when baby starts eating solid food, but doesn't have teeth to brush! Prestyn loves these!

Children's Place Zipper PJ's: We still love these!

Monogrammed Bibs, toe nail polish! P later got Piggy Paint which is non toxic since she puts her piggies in her mouth. :)
4 months was right around the 4th of July. P got a red bow with a P on it, red and blue heart sunglasses, and we got matching Mommy and Me tanks! 

Sunglasses: Goggles as Dylan calls them.

Vanilla Scented Soothie pacis: Prestyn STILL takes a wubbanub paci when she sleeps. If we ever lose her duck we have these babies for back up!

Canvas bag: Holds all of P's sunglasses, and hangs cutely in her room. :)

 5 months was when I went back to work... :( Life got really busy and crazy! I can't find a picture of the 5 month P-Pack. :( I do remember though that P got a matching bow with her monogram on it of course. :)
Y'all! Those knee pads were the bomb diggity! We put them on Prestyn ALL the time! The other thing is awesome too. It links toys to the high chair, car seat, etc. Love it!!
Matching Mommy & Me tees & Piggy

6 Months! Piggy Paint and a monogrammed hat! :)

Well I guess I didn't get a 7 month picture either. :( In that P pack was the pumpkin onesie I ordered, and Prestyn's trick or treating bucket. :) And I'm sure some monogrammed bibs!
And I didn't take a 9 month P-Pack picture. That was right around Christmas time so Prestyn's P-Pack was included with her Christmas gift from Dylan. We were so busy opening presents and having fun we didn't get a P-Pack picture! She got blocks, magnetic letters, and furry boots! Dylan loved the furry boots! So much so that he took them back with him to Lubbock. :) Here they are in the 10 month P-Pack!


And I don't have an 11 month or 12 month picture, but we are just as thankful for those!! Prestyn got monogrammed bloomers that she wore at her birthday party. She also got a super cute romper that is still too big, but she'll wear it soon! :)
Thank you Aunt Kari!! We love you!!
P.S. Sorry these are all out of order! :( 

Prestyn's 12th Month

So today marks Prestyn's 13th month. Do even still count that? When people ask how old she is do I still say 1 or do I say 13 months? I think 18 months is important and then 2 years...but I think to say all the months in between is annoying.

Anyway...I figured I should probably blog about her 12th month! I'll also do a post about her birthday party. :) Which I still haven't finished thank you cards for...there's no time! There's never any time! I write a few a day, but I'll get them done soon!

Anyway so lots is going on with our little over achiever. She now consistently sleeps through the night!! About 10-12 hours...just depending...sometimes she wakes up and cries for a little bit, but then she goes right back to sleep. She has now realized how glorious sleep is that she does not like to wake up early in the morning. She likes to wake up on her own around 7:30 or 8. Which she does on the weekends...but during the week...I let her sleep as late as possible, but when this momma needs to get this baby dressed & off to Mrs. Amber's so she can go to work...I mean business! Most mornings she isn't happy with me. She still cries when I drop her off at Amber's...but not for long...

So blogging is my outlet...today was a rough day with little miss P so I'll try to focus on the positive! She is such a happy baby! Most of the time! She loves to walk/run around!! She loves being chased and chasing others. Prestyn loves to be outside. She loves to swing, ride in her wagon, play in her sandbox, and water table. She also loves to play with her ba-ba (baby), and loves any kind of duck or dog.

Depending on the time Prestyn wakes up she naps either morning and afternoon or just 1 long 3 hour nap. Either way she gets about 3 hours of nap time a day. :) It's nice! It is getting nicer that she's able to stay awake longer too...sometimes even 9 o'clock! That's pushing it, but bedtime is between 7:30-8.

Our sweet girl also says: pease (please) for anything she wants. She knows that is the polite way to ask for something, and will more than likely give her what she wants.. ;) She sometimes says tank you (thank you) too. :) Prestyn has 10 teeth!! 4 on top and bottom in the middle and 2 molars on the bottom.

Our little chunk a monk is loving some cows milk! It's really added to her buddha belly. :) But I think it's cute! She also likes yogurt, all fruit, french toast, waffles, any kind of chicken, any kind of pasta, quesedillas, fish, pretty much anything!...except vegetables...we're still working on that...oh! and she eats eggs now too! Her favorite snacks are veggie straws & fruit snacks.

Because she's growing so much she wears sizes 12-18 month clothes. She's still in size 3 diapers, but I think we'll move up to size 4 soon. I don't have her doctor stats because that was a tough day at the doctor. We took Prestyn for her well visit, and ending up leaving with an antibiotic and ear drops for an ear infection! So she still needs to go in for her shots.. :( Her weight and height were right around the 50th percentile, but her head was in the 80th percentile! Dr. Drake even had to measure her head again to make sure that was right! haha! And it was!

The 12 month photo session was fun! Here are a few :)
