Sophia is Halfway to Two!


You are 18 months old today! I can't believe that you're halfway to two years old. You are such a bright spot in our lives and you make my heart so incredibly happy. You are such a character and have an amazing sense of humor for an 18 month old!

You have your 18 month wellness check next week, and I'm guessing you'll be about 20 pounds. You've really slimmed down because you do NOT sit still. You are always running, jumping, dancing, and chasing Emma.

You love listening to music and can't hear a song without dancing to it. You love musical instruments and often make your own out of whatever is handy. One of your favorite things to do is plop yourself down in the nearest lap with a book. Your favorite books are The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Baby's First Colors, and Counting Kisses.

You are still a great eater, but have recently stopped liking bread as much as you used to. Your favorite foods are spaghetti, turkey and cheese roll ups, peas, corn on the cob, and all fruits, especially watermelon, cantaloupe, and berries. You have finally developed a taste for milk, but water is still your favorite. You want to drink out of a big girl cup and throw an absolute fit when we give you a sippy cup.

In the past few weeks, you have really discovered how to talk. We've hit a language explosion around here! You say a lot of words and phrases now. Some of the things you say are: Mama, Dada, Emma, Nana, Mimi, Papa, cat, TaTa (Sasha), more, water, up, hi, bye-bye, no, yes, uh oh, oh no, I don't know, night-night, and you recently said "Bye-bye llama llama!"

Tonight we celebrated your half-birthday with a half-birthday cake and you got to blow out the candles.  You loved your cake even though most of it ended up in your hair. 

Emma enjoyed her cake too.  ;)
I have absolutely loved spending the summer with you and I am so sad to see it end. I am amazed at how much you have grown in the past couple months and it makes me sad to think of where you'll be next summer. You're growing so quickly and are learning so much. I am so, SO proud to be your mommy, Bug. I love you!
