A Year and a Half

Well we've reached the half way mark. In just 6 months Sophia with be a two year old. I can hardly believe that on Saturday our baby turned 18 months old. I'm a few days behind but since we went for her 18 month well visit today I thought that I could still squeeze in an salute to 18 months. So here's what's been going on over the last 30 days.

1. Constantly trying to dress her self. This ends up in some very interesting outfits, like a pair of my shorts over her head! And see the above photo.
2. Kelly Clarkson’s “Miss Independent" is the current theme song at our house. EVERYTHING is “I do.”
3. She’s becoming a pro at using a spoon. Yesterday she ate an entire container of apple sauce and didn’t spill one drop. But she ate an entire thing of ravioli with her hand. So it’s hit or miss.
4. Loves to cover anything up with a blanket, including the dog. Poor dog.
5. She can spend 20 minutes buckling herself into her highchair. Apparently this is a great form of entertainment or a form of OCD.
6. She absolutely loves her daycare teacher Brenda and can be heard shouting “Enda” all the way down the hall.
7. She can ride her rocking horse like a champ.
8. She has the temper of her father and can throw things farther than an 18 month old should be able to throw
9. Loves to talk on the phone and even holds the phone up to Oscar’s ear. Again, poor dog.
10. She has NOT attempted to climb out of her bed, YAY!!!
11. She has attempted to climb out of her highchair.
12. Aside from her wellness visit today we have not been to the doctor for over 3 months. She weighs 23 pounds and is 32 inches long.
13. Her favorite book is “One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish” and says “no no no” when we get to the part about the “bad fish.”
14.She thinks it is hilarious to yell for us.
15. Loves to give and receive ‘butterfly kisses” and says “eye” when she wants one. 16. She’s starting to play “hide and seek” but she’s a much better seeker than hider.
16. She's starting to play hide and seek but she's a better "seeker" than "hider."
17. There's not a shy bone in her body and she'll talk to anyone.
18. She loves to pretend like she's taking photos...hmmm...I wonder where she gets that from?

I love your list and it reminds me of all the stuff Hailey was doing almost a year ago. I can't believe it has gone by so fast and she is so big. Our baby girls are "Miss Independents" more and more each day. EEK! By the way, I was telling Andrea that we need a blogger girls date at the Clay Center, so I want you to pencil me in for your next week day off if I can wrangle you working moms away from your 5 million other things you need to do, then consider yourselves booked! :)

Where does the time go, i feel like just yesterday we were living in the house together and it has been 7 years ago! Before we know it these little girls will be off to college! (And we will be old!!)
I love her in the boots.

I tried to warn you about how quickly the time would go. In a blink of the eye she will be getting ready for prom! Thanks for sharing all of her milestones!

Love the picture. Seems like just yesterday she was just a baby. Now she is just little miss independent. She amazes me everytime I see her how fast she is growing and what new things she has learned.

Love the butterfly kisses thing! It's so sweet that she says "eye" when she wants one. Oh, and you must go out and get that girl a camera! (Lily has one that makes the clicky noise and the film rewind noise.) Turnabout is fair play.

What a fun list! It's truly amazing how much they grow and develop in such a sort time!

Awww...happy 18 months, Sophie! That picture is totally adorable!

Janice said...

Great list! Wow, 18 months already!!! Seems like you were just planning her 1st birthday party yesterday!

Yay for not climbing out of her crib, but poop on the highchair climbing. Ava does the same thing and drives my crazy.

Happy 18 months, Sophie!!!
