18 Months

Harper turned 18 months old over the weekend. Can you believe it?

She weighs 21 lbs, 13 oz. (20th %) and is 31 inches tall (30th %).

So Harper, what are you up to these days?

You are on the GO. And are so full of adventure! You are a whirlwind of destruction and you have such fun doing it. You love to pull out every single pair of shoes in everybody's closet and pull out every single item of clothing in everybody's dresser. Multiple times every day. You certainly exhaust me but who needs a clean house anyway, right? A happy toddler is much more important...that's what you think anyway :)

Just so you know, your daddy does not approve of these shoes at all.

You are becoming more and more of a picky eater. But one thing you never turn down is mac & cheese. You demand seconds and thirds and then lick your bowl clean. The apple sure doesn't fall far from the tree.

This pose is slightly cuter with a toddler than it is with a grown adult in sweat pants. Just sayin'.

You are most definitely becoming more independent and settling into your own personality. You used to idolize your brother, and while you still do sometimes, you also fight and bicker with him a lot.

Not sure how many more of these you guys are going to cooperate for but I'll take them as long as I can get them!

You are sleeping so much better. You take one nap around 1pm (usually about an hour) and are ready for bed by 7pm. And you are slowly sleeping in a little bit later (or at least before the time change). You usually get up around 7 or 7:30.

Thumbs up to more sleep!!!!!!!

 You don't talk a lot but you definitely know how to get your point across. Words you use on a consistent basis: mama, dada, bubba, puppy (puh-puh), cracker (cah-cah), go (and usually point and yell this at the dogs :), bye-bye, thank you (day-doo), uh-oh, bubbles (buh-buhs), no. And you love to use your signs: more, please, thank you, drink, all done, help, and I love you. 

You definitely know how to ask for opening up the freezer and grabbing one and bringing it to us :)

A few other snippets about you at this age:

*you love to give hugs and kisses.
*you are shy around people you don't know well.
*You HATE being in the stroller or in the shopping cart. HATE it.
*Every time you hear an airplane you look up in the sky and point to it, and then make airplane noises and laugh.
*You are a really such a sweet girl. But you also have a temper. We've had to put you in timeout a few times for hitting and BOY did you get mad! You have a flair for drama and can pout that lip out about a mile!
*You aren't interested in tv at all. You like to sit and read with me for about 2 pages because you don't like it when I turn the page. You love to play Ring-Around-the-Rosy and If You're Happy and You Know It.
*You are in size 18mo. clothes, size 4-5 shoe, and size 4 diaper.
*You make us smile and laugh and thank God every day! 

Harper, stop growing up so fast! Please and thank you.
