18 months

A year and a half. How can this be? It seems like just yesterday we were dreaming about you, decorating your nursery and planning for your arrival and now you are walking, talking and interacting with us! You are so full of life. Everything is exciting when you are in the room. We just love you so much. There is no way we could have ever realized how immeasurably blessed we would feel by your precious little life.

Here are your stats from our visit to see Dr. Wilkes:
length: 34.5" (95%)
weight: 27 lbs 14.5 ounces (90%)
head: 49.75 cm (95%)

Now, onto what I love to do every month. Here is what is going on with you...
- You wear size 24 months and 2T clothes, a size 5 diaper and size 7 shoe.
- You nap for about 2 hours each day. You put yourself to sleep for nap time each day and sleep so well. You have been sleeping really good at night, praise the Lord!
- You are a really good little eater. Nothing new there :) You have been since you were born.
- You have started to really test your daddy and I. Independence is very enticing to you. We try to stay very consistant with you. I am not going to lie, you are a little rascal sometimes.
- You LOVE to be around other children.
these are your new friends that popped up at the arboretum for fall. you love to stand and "talk" to them. you honk their noses and just stare at them. ha!
- You talk all the time. If you get ahold of a phone, watch out! We are still trying to understand everything you are saying.
- You love to play in your little kitchen and are very good at being creative while you play.
- You love to take walks with daddy up and down our street and look for animals. You always come running in the house when you get back and tell me all the animals you saw by using animal sounds. It is so cute.
- Dancing is your new favorite thing. Anytime there is music or clapping, you just break it down!
- You love to play hide and seek with your daddy.
- You are very sweet and lovable. You even try to hug statues or in this case scarecrows.
- You love to water the flowers outside.... and sometimes you get a little crazy with the hose.
- You have started coloring and playing with stickers. You spend lots of afternoons with stickers all over your little tummy.
- You like building forts with your daddy.
- You are very good at sharing. We are so proud of you when you give other children your food or toys.

I just had to throw this in.... I cannot believe this was my little 6 month old this time last year! Oh precious girl!!!!!
We love you dearly you sweet thing!!!!! - mama and daddy
