18 months ago she was so teensy...
She's so adventurous now. Her first steps were so magnificent, but now she RUNS! She climbs and is almost to the point of jumping. She's a little daredevil and makes John and I jump and run to her when we see her teetering on the edge of what could be a terrible fall, but boy does she get MAD when we try and save her. She's all about doing it herself.
She loves to go on the swings and the slide...she's almost go the knack of climbing ladders. She loves bathtubs, but has decided getting her hair wet is NOT fun. She also loves a shower and likes to stand in it and play in the water.
She's finally got some molars in and is now exploring the world of harder food...carrots, celery, chips, apples. They don't have to be close to mush anymore and she has turned into a world class grazer. Her nickname Munchie suits her very well.
She says quite a few words now - book, nighty night, all done, please, thank you, I love you, etc. She practices new words, but is still a little belligerent if you ask her to say something - forget it...boy does she have her mama's stubborn side. Aiya!
Her 18 month doctor's appointment gave us these stats:
She is now 23 pounds 9 ounces.(about the 25th percentile)
She is 32.25 inches tall. (about the 50th percentile)
Her head is 47 cm around. (about the 50th percentile)
Little munchie is getting sooo big...
