Baby Girl is 18 Months

Baby Girl has grown up way too fast. She's now a nursery loving little girl! What a joy she is in our lives.
Here are her current stats as of Wednesday... She's grown!!! We think it's from all the halloween candy!
Weight 20lbs 5oz - 4% (Up from 2%)
Height 32 inches - 53% (Up from 26%)
Head 47cm - 72% (Up from 25%)
I'm wondering if they measured her correctly. But, she is head heavy. We have to watch her very carefully in the bathroom because she loves the toilet and the bathtub. Infact, just last night after she got out of her own bath, Master Chief got her dressed and she went in the bathroom and jumped in Kermit's bath... clothes and all.

Baby girl is an amazing talker. But don't give her the phone unless you don't plan to get it back any time soon. She'll take the phone and run, talking people's ears off. Her list of words would take forever to list. I'm sure she quadruples Kermit and Miss Piggy's at this age, plus she's putting words together. We think it's because of having older siblings around.
Wuv You

and then anything you ask her to say, as long as she doesn't have an audience, she repeats.
Baby Girl has an love for shoes. Oh my goodness does this little girl love shoes. I had no idea a baby could love them this much. She will wear anybody's shoes, no matter the size.
And can she ever give kisses. She freely gives kisses away left and right. She's very compasionate. If someone is hurt, she is right there giving hugs and kisses. She loves to say her prayers, folding her arms and bowing her head.
Baby girl also has a love for all things sweet. She is almost worse than me when it comes to chocolate. And she could eat you out of ice cream any day. (Like mother, like daughter) Then there's the halloween candy, excuse me... "tandy". A word I hear all day long as she grabs my hand and leads me to the pantry. She's an eater. She will only feed herself though. A little independent already. She eats more than her big sister (though that's not hard to do, lol). And she is not picky about anything she eats.
She's also started to climb. Just today she scared me to death with her 'simba truck' (long story, but it's a princess ride truck). She pushed it over to a wall, climbed up the seat, then on the steering wheel just so she could reach the light switch.
She keeps us busy! We adore her and are so thankful for her and the special place she has in our family.

She and Piper have so much in common! Maybe they will be best friends!

She is so cute! Sawyer does the same thing with his bike and standing on it to turn the lights on and off and it scares me too, one day I won't be in there and I know he will come crashing down!
