A year and a half

Guess who's 18 months?!

Lorelai, 18 months

Lorelai's 27lb 2oz (87th percentile) and 33.25 inches (90th percentile). She's 100% perfect and healthy as usual (except the whole peanut allergy thing, ugh). Her appointment didn't go so well, though. It's official: she's absolutely terrified of the doctor. The minute she saw the nurse, she got all clingy and as soon as I set her on the table and started to undress her, she lost her mind. I had to stand on the scale with her to get her weight, and when the doctor tried to look in her ears, we had to physically restrain her while she turned bright red fighting us. It was just terrible. She also got two shots, but she was so worked up already that it didn't even make things much worse. Logan was there though, and he was so sweet with her, trying to calm her down and cheer her up. It actually did help a bit to get her mind of all the torture at the end :)

Otherwise, she a normal totally bipolar toddler. Happy, silly and funny one minute...a screaming mess the next. She's miss independent, too. She loves to try to do things by herself, like putting on her shoes and coat.

She still isn't saying a ton of words, but I'm not as worried now. She's got a bunch of new words since the her 15 month appointment. She's added ball, bow, no, down, hi, bye, book, mine, yeah and probably others that I'm not remembering now. She also says "baa" when we ask her what a sheep says, which is so freaking cute (even though that's the only animal sound she says). Even cuter than that? She blows kisses. I die of cuteness every time.

She's got 16 teeth now (well, one canine isn't all the way in yet), is a great eater and is getting better at using a spoon and fork. She'd probably be better by now if we let her have more practice, but it's usually easier to just let her use her hands (bad mommy). We're working on it though. I'm trying to let her do more coloring, too, but she always ends up trying to eat the crayons (please tell me that's still normal...) so we have to find something else to do.

She plays really well with the boys and always wants to be involved in what they're doing. They love her just as much as always and are really great with trying to calm her down when she gets in one of her moods. She's not as much of a mommy's girl as she used to be, either. Adam's super glad about this, I'm sure!

All in all, Lorelai is the most fabulous, perfect, most awesome little girl and I just love watching her learn and grow. Cliche, I know. But it's so true. She always seems to put a smile on our face with something cute she does, or a funny expression she makes. She's awesomesauce, pure and simple.

Oh, that hair. Still haven't cut it, still gets in her face all the time because she doesn't leave bows in.
