18 Months


Sophia, Happy 18th month pretty girl. I wanted to do this post before I got too busy and forgot. I have been slacking on your last 2-3 months. I took your picture just never had the time to write to you. I'll get to that. I promise. 

But we decided to bring your chair outside and take some pictures. The weather was perfect and you kept saying you wanted to go outside. Daddy was outside hitting golf balls so you wanted to hold and play with the balls and club some too while I took these pictures. 

_________________


At 18 months you have learned a lot. Your talking and communicating with us so much more. You've learned a lot of new words. You now say: Pease (Please), Down or Get Down, Top It (Stop It), Cookie, Monkey, OwGide (Outside), Bubbles, Owie (Ouch), Uh Oh, Eww, Nummies (Food), and all the other words you've been saying the past couple of months.

You are still not walking on your own. I know you can, you're just afraid I think. We practice all the time but as soon as we let go of your hand you just go to the ground and crawl. If we ask you where your eyes, nose, hands, belly, hair and feet are you point to them. And when we say Sophia how old are you, you put your one finger up!


You can still fit into 12-18 months but most of your clothes are 18-24 and sometimes even 2T. Mommy loves shopping for you and you have so much clothes! Your shoe size is still pretty small. I have been buying sandals for this summer size 18-24 months at Old Navy but I'm afraid they might be too big because the 12-18 months are still small for you. Your daddy says that you're not walking because your lil feet are too small.


You still eat everything! You do a great job with eating your fruits and veggies. Your favorites are string cheese, strawberries, fruit snack and spaghetti. You'll eat anything we eat though.


You sleep pretty good at night. Maybe wake up for a lil bit because you want your bottle (yes, you're still on the bottle, but you use a sippy cup too) or looking for your binky. You take at least 1-2 naps a day and they are pretty long. If you don't get your second nap then you go to sleep pretty early in the evenings. You still fight sleep sometimes. You'll do anything you can to stay away. Sometime's you'll just start making noises, it's funny.


You still do ok out in public. Shopping is kind of hard with you. We have to bring a lot of things to keep you entertained. You do better at restaurants. As long as you have food in front of you, you're ok. But when you're unhappy, everyone knows it. There are sometimes when we have to leave the store because you just throw the biggest fits.

Speaking of fits, you're starting to throw more of them when I take something away from you. You are always trying to get into stuff you're not supposed to and when I take you away from it you go start screaming and sometimes even smacking mommy. As soon as I calm you down you're back to loving me.


You started getting some teeth in the back. I think you have 3 in the back now that are coming in. You're hair is still crazy and curly. One thing that is different is you don't have your ears pierced anymore. I don't know what happened but every day I'd pick you up from daycare and you would have lost one. I kept buying new ones and you'd somehow lose one or even both. I even bought the screw on ones so I have no idea how that happened. I just decided to stop buying them and I'm pretty sure they grew over :(

I hate that you had to go through the pain when you first got them and will have to again one day when you decide you want your ears pierced.


You are growing up into such a little girl. I almost feel like calling you a baby isn't right because you really aren't. I'll just call you my baby girl. That works for me.

I love you baby girl. Happy 18 months!
