For reals!!!!!!!!! 18 months!!! 1 1/2!!!! I just cannot believe it. My baby is definitely not a baby any longer! I think I may be in denial, but looking at pictures and thinking about writing this post made me realize that Maria is getting to be a big girl. Her half bday was on July 6...I'm a little late! But here is what she is up to:
*Maria had a great check up at the doctor. No concerns from Mommy or Doctor.
*She has all but 2 of her top teeth, and only her molars and front bottom two teeth on the bottom.
*Maria wears a size 5 shoe. We will be going show shopping soon, as the size 5 is getting a little snug.
*Maria is in size 4 diapers. She tells me when she poops and pees...I don't think I am ready for round 2 of potty training!
*Maria eats pretty much everything. She loves fruit and dessert the most. She really does eat pretty much everything we put on her plate.
*Maria still naps once a day from around 12:30-3!
*Maria loves bath time....most days.
*She will be moving into her toddler bed soon!
*She loves to sleep with her pillow pet and lots of babies.
*She has recently adopted Greg's habit of having a blankie with her for bed and around the house.
*Maria talks A LOT! She attempts to copy anything and everything you ask her to. She puts several words together and is pretty good about pointing and communicating her needs with words as best she can.
*Maria has a very sweet personality and is always the first to respond with a hug or kiss when someone is hurt.
*She likes to brush her own teeth after we brush them.
*She knows and points to all of the major body parts.
*She likes to play pretend kitchen...mainly to eat the pretend food.
*Maria is a GREAT when traveling in the car and does really well in the plane!
*She has a hard time at Mass with us. She is rarely quiet, and by the time we stand for the Gospel, we pretty much have to take her to the back!
*Maria loves the camera and immediately says "cheese" as soon as she sees it!
*She likes to "sing" the ABCs. A is about the only letter she says correctly in the song! :-)
*Maria does not do strangers well. She gets very upset when they try to touch her. (I guess this means I am doing something right...haha!)
*She loves jumping into the pool. She often gets upset when you try to catch her.
Sometimes life is tough...and you just got to take a nap where you can.
And I thought I had bad hair days....hahaha!
