18 Month Birthday!

Favourite Foods – meatloaf, can-cakes, Cheerios (of course)

Favourite Toys– Princess blocks, Princess cellphone (Pin-cess Hello?), crayons

New Words– dude, Phwiper (Swiper the fox from Dora), play (usually a command), thank you

What Makes You Laugh – still likes to be ‘eaten’

New Skills – counting along with us (as in she points and repeats the numbers).  We did up to 15 the other day.

Bedtime – unless she’s especially cranky, 7:30pm

Times Awake – usually once at about 4, usually to trade one green fuzzy blanket for another identical green fuzzy blanket.

Naps – 1, for between 2 and 3 hours.  My favourite development!

This month had a lot of highs and lows, mommy/daughter-wise.  Vacation started great, but got rough because mommy and daddy are not nearly as fun and exciting as Bugba (Grandma) and all her daycare kids.  So she therefore punished us for our inadequacies by entering her Terrible Twos 6 months early.  But we quickly recovered and now she is the sweetest, most affectionate baby I’ve ever seen.

She loves giving out kisses now, which before were reserved for bedtime only unless you were up for a fight or had a lot to barter with.  And following each kiss is a great big hug and the accompanying sound effects (Ahhh...).  Every hug and kiss feels like the most heart-wrenchingly touching hug and kiss, especially given last week, and I cherish every one of them.  I’ve never been a very emotional person, but these enthusiastic displays of her love for us melt me into a puddle of popcorn butter.
