G is 18 months old. So big. The only two things that reminds me she is a baby are the diapers and the lack of a full and understandable vocabulary.
She has chores. She sleeps well. She has a mouth of teeth. She takes a bath in the big kid tub. She eats like a kid. She dances, sings, plays piano, and masters puzzles five minutes after getting them. She knows what we need to do to leave and does it--often reminding me if I'm about to leave without something. She reminds me to drink water when we are eating lunch!
Oh, and she is nearly a big sister. Don't forget that fact. She knows baby brother is in my belly and she knows which things are his--does she always like that? no.
G at 18 months:
Favorites:Blueberries or any berry, nearly any fruit. 100% fruit juice when she gets it. Noodles. Eggs. Grilled baby carrots. Ham. Pb & J. Oatmeal, if I feed it to her. Making a mess + feeding herself yogurt.
When Daddy comes home from work, or is home on Sundays to get her out of bed in the morning
|watching Tom + Jerry with Dad and laughing|
Watching Elmo--oh and watching Live! with Kelly when I get a chance to turn it on
She also got the chance to watch some Tom & Jerry this past Saturday and absolutely LOVED it...seriously thought it was the greatest thing ever made.
Going to the gym + playing with other kids
"typing" on the computer
"Paradise" by Coldplay
Eating snacks on the carpet in the living room
Doing puzzles, shape sorters, putting things in and figuring how to get them out of various containers...any thing that requires logical brain power :-)
Picking out her own clothes, snacks, etc...
Digging in the dirt
Skyping--especially when Papaw comes on the screen
Using a napkin
She loves bath time and bubbles :-)
|she loves showing everyone what a skunk does--peee you!|
Dislikes:The start of nap or bed time routines, but she recently started not crying when we leave the room (for now) so that's awesome.
Being told no--but thankfully she still respects it!
Doing just about anything *not* on *her* time
Being in the car for a "long" time
Sitting still, ever, especially at church
Not being about to see the screen when I'm on the phone or taking a picture
--she's a pretty easy going kid aside from that
- Bed Time: between 8:30 - 9 pm...she usually sleeps until 8 am
- Teeth: still waiting on the canines and two year molars. She's been cutting the first canine for weeks--fun
- Her feet are finally getting a bit bigger--outgrowing her size 4 Children's Place sandals. She fits well into her size 5 Converse and her 4.5 Stride Rite shoes are fitting fine for now.
- She's in 18-24 month clothes, a few 2t shirts or shorts.
- I'll giver her height and weight from the doctor when we go in a few weeks, I'd estimate a bit of change in height but not much in weight.
|loves helping -- seriously she's such a HELPER|
