Abigail by the Month! (18)

Abigail turned 18 months old on November 1, 2013! I can't believe my baby girl is already one and a half!

This is what you are currently doing:

  • You are in 18 month clothes.
  • You are in size 5 diapers.
  • Your 18 month stats were: head 19 1/4 in (95%), height 30.5 in (20%) and weight 26.1/4 lbs (80%)
  • You are still a good eater! This is what you will currently eat: any fruit we give you, some vegetables, any meat, pancakes, eggs, but your favorites are mac & cheese, squash, spaghetti, cookies & ice cream (which you don't get very much of)! 
  • You still have 6 oz of whole milk at breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. You drink water all day with a little squirt of the calorie free gatorade.
  • You're still sleeping great from 7:00-7:30 p.m to 6:30-7 a.m. You love your sleep and get cranky when you don't get enough, just like your Mama! ;)
  • We still let you have your paci, or Nannie as you randomly call it, but we're trying to limit your use for nap time/bed time or if you get really upset (which is rare). I know we'll have to start taking it away though when you turn 2!
  • You are officially walking running everywhere and getting into everything! You LOVE making messes! Daddy's nickname for you is "Captain Distructo". 
  • You still love playing peek-a-boo, pat-a-cake and when we chase you. You also love for us to read books to you now and your favorites are Where is Spot? and Skippyjon Jones Up and Down. Unfortunately, you did go through a stage when you would tear some of the books if they had pop up pages, but we're trying to quit that habit!

  • You definitely have a little temper! You haven't had to go in time out that much, but still receive spankings pretty often for being ugly/disrespectful to Mommy or Daddy. When you get mad you normally try to hit one of us, throw something, or bang your head against something. You totally get that from your daddy by the way! :) 
  • You are not really afraid of anything now and you love the vacuum cleaner.
  • You still won't wear bows, but you are funny and you'll say "bow?" and make us put one in your hair. You immediately take it out though and then we repeat this process over and over.
  • You're still taking baths in the sink if Mommy's giving you one! Daddy's more fun and lets you take a bath in the big bathtub, or in the shower with him, which you LOVE! You are such a water baby! You absolutely hate getting out though and throw a big fit every time.
  • You still love going outside. You especially love going on walks and walking on your own. You love playing in the backyard with Daddy while he checks on his fish/garden. However, you've gotten into the bad habit of eating dirt every time! I just don't get that one! 

  • You still do not like to have your diaper changed!
  • You still love to play in the bathroom and take everything out of all Mommy's drawers. Thankfully though you stopped trying to play in the toilet all the time.
  • You are still the queen of the cheesy grin and I absolutely LOVE it!
  • You still love waiting for Daddy to get home from work. You also love it if he ever gets to take you to Mrs. Tracy's in the morning or pick you up. He is your hero!
  • You are "talking" all the time and very vocal! These are the words you can say: mama, dada, mommy, daddy, hurry, hi, eyes, no, bye, Nana, Papa, Nay Nay, oopps, Charlie, Micky Mou (mouse), puppy, Trayee (Mrs. Tracy), mine, two, shoes, go, shishies (fish aka goldfish), Abby, Michael, and apple.
  • You listen and follow directions very well.
  • If we're counting and I say "one" you shout out "two!". It's so cute!
  • You still love people and especially kids! You'll walk up to any kid and act like they're your best friend.
  • We had to put locks on the door handles because you started opening the pantry, bathrooms, and garage door and walking out on your own.
  • Your favorite songs are: "You Are My Sunshine", "You Are So Beautiful", "The Alphabet Song" and when we randomly count numbers aloud.
  • When you have a cold, you ABSOLUTELY HATE to have your nose sucked out. You almost make yourself sick crying so hard. I have to hold you down on the floor and pin you down with my legs. It's almost beginning to be a two person job, which your Daddy is not happy about.
  • Thankfully you've been very healthy and haven't been sick except for one little cold recently.
  • You are down to one nap a day and consistantly sleep about 2-2.5 hrs a day. 
  • You LOVE music! Your daddy and I think it's hilarious, but we can turn on the t.v and play the theme songs to "The Pioneer Woman" and "Gilmore Girls" and you automatically stop whatever you're doing, stare at the t.v and then start shaking your booty! Sooooo cute!
  • You seem to have conquered your fear of dogs! You will pet them now and get close. You also love Mrs. Tracy's cat Milo!
  • If I ask you to go get something for me, you can go get it and bring it to me most of the time.
  • You are VERY fascinated with computers and normally get in trouble because you try to bang on Mommy or Daddy's laptop with is a big no no!
  • You have your first t.v show that you now will sit and watch (most of) and ask for daily! What is it? Why Mickey Mouse Clubhouse of course! 
  • You are very tenderhearted and get your feelings very hurt easily. However, you have like a 5 second rebound rate! ;)
  • You love giving hugs and kisses to Mommy & Daddy.
  • Your grandparents, Mrs. Tracy, and Charlie are your favorite people, with the exception of Mommy & Daddy!
Abby girl, I love every day with you. I love seeing your little personality shine and shine it does. You bring light and laughter into a boring, ordinary world. Everyone loves you! I love how stubborn you are but also how sensitve you can be. Every day with you is a gift and I wouldn't change a single thing about you! I love you to the moon and back again!
