This little girl...

Is 18 months old. :) She loves to run and climb. She eats better than her Mommy - eating lots of fruits and veggies, chicken, beef, pork and fish. She eats sandwiches with lettuce and tomato (something her Mommy doesn't) and chicken quesadillas. Her new thing is walking up and down the stairs on her own. She's only fallen once, thankfully. She loves to dance anytime music comes on. But especially to Choo Choo Soul on Playhouse Disney. She loves for us to play it on the computer. She can jump and actually get both feet off the ground. Her new favorite toy is her Learning Bunny. Yesterday was her first day going binky-free for her nap and at bedtime. Nap #2 is going on right now, again, binky-free. Earlier this week I had to spell my first word in front of her, e-a-t, so she wouldn't run upstairs to the fridge. She'll give you "the rock" while making the kissing sound. :) She's talking more and more. I've lost track of the words she says. She knows what sounds a cow, doggie, kitty, sheep and duck make and will make them too. But, any animal she sees is still a doggy. Ha ha! When you ask her what a monkey does, she puts her hands in her armpits and says "ooh ooh" and when you ask her what a bird does she flaps her arms. She loves to go on bike rides with her daddy, although she doesn't like to wear her helmut. She likes Elmo and as of this week, loves Dora. She rarely sits still, is full of energy and always on the go. She's amazing. So much fun. Makes us smile and laugh all the time.

she's getting so big! what a sweetie. just wait until she's four and has full blown conversations with you. about important things, like god and "mommy...how did i get out of your tummy? did it just crack open?" ummm....yeah....a little awkward. :)
