    Child's Age: 3.5 years

    Approx. height/weight: 40+ inches, 32 pounds (tall and skinny!)

    Are you weaned, weaning, or going strong? She nurses only at story time before bed now unless she's sick or something. She can really gulp it down, though! (Funny how I planned to wean her at 1 year when she was a baby ) We're in negotiations about weaning before she starts pre-school next fall.

    Sleeping and napping patterns: She sleeps about 10-11 hours at night (8:30-7:30) and usually takes a 1-2 hour nap in the afternoon, but not always. I nightweaned her (from her last early morning session) when she was about 22 months old.

    Teeth: Oh, yes, a mouth full.

    Talking yet? She has been talking in complete sentences since she was about 18 months old!

    Favorite food: Breastmilk (really) Other than that, she loves all kinds of fruit.

    Favorite toy: Her princess dress-up gown

    Favorite activity: Dancing to princess music in said gown, going to ballet class

    Anything else special to share? She is full of imagination and creativity. I think it's hilarious that she loves pink and all things "girly" because I was never much of a "girly girl" and used to hate pink as a kid. She has evolved from a challenging baby and toddler (we used to call her a diva) to the sweetest, most loving little girl. She also recently learned how to write her own name.


    ETA: I love reading about all your LOs! Great thread.
