Lillian Grace: 18 Months Old

Eighteen Months

"I will do it too, whoo-whooo.  Yes, I'm last and very small.  But I'll never give up at all."
~ The Littlest Owl by Caroline Pitcher & Tina Macnaughton


Weight:   20lbs

Height:   31”

Wearing: Size Twelve - Eighteen Month, Size 4 Shoe

Motor Milestones: Lilly made it through another month without major injury... but it was a surprise for us.  She just loves anything and everything large motor that drives me crazy.  Here newest favorite thing is twirling ... even when she gets so dizzy she falls down, if she hears some good music, she goes into instant ballerina mode.  She has also improved greatly at her kicking, running, and climbing stairs.  During more focused activity time, she loves to color and sort shapes.  The Melissa & Doug shape shorter is her favorite and she is great with the shapes and colors, althought the hexagon, pentagon and octagon give her a little challenge, but then again, they give me a challenge too when I try to help.

Language Milestones: Our little chatter box is learning new words everyday and she is starting to put together small sentences .. mostly things like More Please, Daddy Cup, Mama's Hot (referring to my hot tea cup).  She has started to sing real words to her favorite bedtime song and has added the word MINE to her daily vocabulary ... I am guessing she picked that up at school, since at home there are never any fights over toys. :)

Highlights:
·         Has two bottom molars and likes to test them out while eating.
·         Spent the weekend with Papa and Gigi and got to experience football Saturday
·         Pooped in the bathtub for the first time
·         Visited the Allergist and lucky didn't have any severe allergies, just some eczema.

Favorites:  driving her cars around the house, taking her "purse" with her on her car trips, edamame, running through the house yelling "Go", telling the driver of the real car "Go" after we stop at a stop light, giving kitty High Five.
