This little girl turned eighteen months yesterday, now making her closer to two than one. Where did my little baby go? She loves running, talking, and jumping, and mimicking her sister. She’s now going through the screaming phase and getting more strong-willed by the day. We love her to pieces! See how she’s grown.
Miss M turned fifteen months old a few days ago – man, time sure does fly! I’m posting her fourteen month picture too, since I missed that one.
She’s a little person with a ton of personality, toddling around and making us laugh constantly. She gets into everything, screams when she doesn’t get what she wants, dances her booty off, scribbles on the walls, and has no fear of climbing onto big sister’s scooter and taking off down the driveway.
She’s catching up on the growth chart, weighing in at 20.5 pounds & 30 inches, putting her in the 40-50th percentile.
She’s a talker too, with probably 20-30 words in her vocabulary, although a lot of them sound similar and Mommy and Daddy are probably the only ones who can decipher most of them.
Little Miss K has loved Wizard of Oz for a couple of years, so it was natural that she wanted a “Dorothy” birthday party. I can’t believe this girl is already four years old! Her birth feels like yesterday. We had a great time celebrating with family and close friends My mom did a great job with the cake. I found the figurines for it on ebay – they were from the 2013 McDonald’s Happy Meals. I had fun designing the decorations and coming up with food ideas – there wasn’t much out there on Pinterest, believe it or not. Here’s what we did:
Yellow brick road: egg casserole
Over the rainbow: fruit rainbow
Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my!: animal crackers
Ruby slippers: Hot Tamales
Witch’s broomsticks: pretzels
Tin man hats: Hershey’s kisses
Aunt Em’s fresh squeezed juice: You guessed it – juice!
I haven’t been posting on the blog nearly as often lately, because I haven’t been taking nearly as many photos. We’ve been so busy with a new job, a move to a new house, and a new baby on the way, that I’ve barely had time! This weekend we had friends stay with us, so I had my camera out a lot. I just had to share this photo – a rare image with perfect focus, captured while Lil’ Miss K was jumping all over the place. More pics of the weekend to come!
Lil’ Miss K was hesitant to parade down the aisle for Palm Sunday in front of the entire congregation, but by the end of church and Sunday school yesterday, she couldn’t stop dancing around with her palm. She even told us how Jesus rode on a donkey and people laid down their palms for him. I love this girl and her enthusiasm and eagerness to learn.
This little girl is growing up way too fast. She’s a ball of energy with a lot of sass and a lot to say. She couldn’t be any cuter! I’ve had the pleasure of taking her photos since she was an infant, so I love looking back to see how she’s changed. Since she has a late fall birthday, we utilized our newly remodeled church, which has great natural light.
My Lil’ Miss K is just 4 months away from being 3 years old. Hard to believe she’s closer to 3 than she is to 2. I love how much she talks – we have real, back-and-forth, conversations all the time. I also love some of the words she mispronounces – “chlocate” instead of “chocolate,” “hangaber” instead of “hamburger,” “cup-ul-der” instead of “cup holder.” I need to write all these cute little things down so I never forget. I see the wheels turning in her brain every day as she learns something new. Love it!
