Eighteen Months Old *January 13, 2013*

It's another half birthday for our little Alli! She has really grown up these past two months, and she actually looks like she's getting taller (although she still looks like a solid average 10-month old :)!). I can't believe that we're only 6 months away from her second birthday. Seriously, where have the days gone?!? We had a great Christmas visiting family, and she loved what Santa brought for her too. Happy year and a half, Alli!
Here's what you're up to:

*You weigh 20 pounds 2.8 ounces and are 29.25 inches tall. (Finally an accurate measurement since her well-baby check-up was today). 

*You still have 12 teeth. 

*You love saying "hi" and "bye bye" to anyone and everyone. Your "bye" sounds like "dye" and you just wave away like crazy. 
*You still love Chevy and still call him "dog." You look for him each morning. When we ask you what a doggie says, you say "woof woof."

*Your vocabulary has grown even more. Here are the words you say most often: duck, cow, tree, please, waffle, milk, dog, Lila, mama, dada, mommy, hi, hello, shoes, wow, uh huh, yes, Ye-Ye and Mamu (for your grandmamas), edaddy, thanks, yeah, stinky, and outside.

*You still love to say "That's mine." You say it so soft and cute that we rarely get onto you about it. 

*You can repeat most one-syllable words that we ask you. You can also say a few phrases like "yes, please."

*You actually say the full word, "milk", now. You also still drink about four full cups per day. You will steal Lila's too if it's closer than yours. 

*You still love pretending to talk on the phone or to take pictures with a camera. 

*Still hooked on the pacis; however, you only get them at night, for naps, or riding in the car. (unless you find one laying around the house). 

*You are such a monkey and love to climb on everything. You even climbed out of your crib a few days ago, and scared your daddy to death. We had to lower it to the bottom so it doesn't happen again for a while. 

*Taking one big nap per day from 2-4. You sleep for a max of 2 hours and rarely ever longer than that.

*You love to wake up early, and most days you are up at 7am. The past week, you have slept until 7:30, but that is more rare. Bedtime is between 7:45 and 8pm.

*Your eating habits are so random these days. You will eat the baby food pouches sometimes, but you love anything in the form of a cracker or bread. You love sweets, waffles, apples, bananas, cheese, peanut butter sandwiches, and grapes. You will eat Gerber ravioli as well as the pinwheel pasta meals. You LOVE any kind of berries too!

*Still wearing size 3 diapers, 9-12 month clothes (some 18 month clothes, but that's more rare), 12 and 18 month sleepers (all of the 9 month sleepers are finally getting too snug).

*You love to watch Yo Gabba Gabba on the iPad and will dance the whole time. The volume doesn't even have to be up, you just like to watch them dance. 

*You had a great Christmas and were so well-behaved on the airplane rides. You watched the iPad the whole way back to Texas. In the airport, you wanted to run all over the place and acted so wild!
