Remember, the first bar loss is approximately a 15% degradation marker. The remaining bars are lost at half of that percentage per bar. Also, there is some headroom on a new battery that does not initially show up on Leafspy and usually takes about 6ish months in hot climates on a new battery pack before it starts showing signs of dropping any percentage points.
Once you are past those 2 situations, along with having to charge more often because of said loss, it will march faster in time to its remainder of degradation. Your battery was also replaced in October so it was put into service after summer in its first year so you have more winters than summers at this point. It will be interesting to see where you are again after summer on your anniversary in October. I wish you good luck and I hope it goes the best as possible.
