Update on Miss Jenni Lin

Been awhile since we posted. Sorry no pictures this time. I am using a different computer so no photos. I just thought I would update everyone on Jenni's Milestones. I have another blog that I read and I enjoy reading their "milestones" post for their little girl. So I thought family friends would like to read Jenni's.

Jenni will be 15 months on Dec. 24th

*Jenni is 29 inches tall and weighs 19.8 pounds (my arms appreciate the low weight!)
*She now says Dada/daddy, mama (but always long drawn out maaamaaa),kitty, nigh, nigh. She really isn't much of a talker but jabbers in a strange baby language, she has a tendency to whine or do a low quiet scream or squeal to get whats she wants and points.
* Even though not much of talker she does know some sign language-all done, please, thank you. She does love to give kisses and blow you kisses
*understands yes and no and normally minds very well when we tell her no
*She still usually takes two 2 hr naps a day and sleeps about 10 hours at night. She rather sleep in her crib than in our bed with us. She normally sleeps pretty well through the night but lately has been waking at least once for a diaper change and a mama hug.
*She is getting much better about snuggling..she use to be nicknamed "jello" as she hated to be held for too long but now she actually comes to us to be held and snuggled especially from her dada.
*She is walking everywhere and still is partially potty trained.

She is feeling much better as she had tubes put in her ears about 1 week ago. Still has some mild hearing loss that they say may never get better. Still has vomitting issues but it has improved some. We are just having so much fun with her during this holiday time. Mama has been home with her the last two days as daycare and my work has been closed as we got about 2 1/2 FEET of snow so everything in our town is closed except of course daddy's work! He has a four wheel drive truck so he has been getting around pretty well. Our city has not seen this much snow in a 2 day period in over a hundred years so it has been interesting. Well, hope you all are doing well and I promise to add some pictures.
