18 Months!

Leah is 18 months! I still think of her as my baby, but she's definitely more of a little girl - and she's a girly girl! She's cautious, dainty, and very affectionate. I bought her a kiddie stroller to push her baby doll around in, and she loves it! She also loves to explore her independence. She's the happiest when she can just roam around on her own, and she will often refuse to eat food unless she can feed herself. Here are some other updates:

  • Weight: 21 lbs 10.6 oz (15%) She had a stomach bug earlier this week, so I suspect she lost some weight
  • Height: 33 in (83%)
  • Words: Froyo, hello, oink oink, sit, go, flower, hat, beak, hot, cold, dog, one, four, "may-me" for binky, "or there" for over there, "wa wa" for water, kix {I must admit, she's picking up new words so quickly now that I'm starting to lose track of them. I can't write it down quick enough!} 

Leah:  My little girl, I love you sooo much.  Every day I feel the bond between us growing deeper and stronger, which makes me so happy.  I love the time we spend together, getting Froyo, playing at the park, doing chores, smelling the flowers in the garden, or just relaxing in our chairs on the deck, waving at helicopters and calling at birds as they fly by.  You are still such a tiny little bugger, but getting bigger, more mobile, and more capable so quickly.  I am so impressed by how smart you are, and how quickly you develop new skills and learn new words.  Today you drank from a water bottle all by yourself and hardly spilled a drop, until we stopped to celebrate :)  You also opened and closed the bedroom door all by yourself.  You are so loving and gentle to everyone around you- I can't get enough of your smiles, hugs and kisses.  You are also a very independent and industrious little girl, and I love to hear your little feet as you go stomping from room to room.  I am so proud to be your Dada.  Happy 18 months!
