Our 18 month old...

Baby! She is still such a baby sometimes, but now, she acts more and more like a little girl everyday! She is saying Mommy, Daddy, Bandit, Babe, Dog, Bobo, Bye, NO! and I am sure many more I am not thinking of. She can follow short commands like, "put this in the trash," and "go get a pair of shoes to wear outside." She prefers to be outside all day, and now that the weather is nice, that's exactly what we do! She can open the door to her room-yikes-but will usually stay put until we get her. She LOVES her babies and usually has one or more in her hands at all times. She gives the sweetest hugs, is a good eater, loves to brush her teeth, and still loves her Daddy (although I have gotten more attention this week.) She jabbers all day long, and has the most expressive face! She will still kiss any dog on the mouth, but not her Mommy or Daddy! I mean, seriously?  I can't believe my baby girl is going to be a Big Sister anyday. I have just been praying for a smooth transition for all of us, but especially her. I have loved being able to go and do as we please for the last 18 months, and I know that is going to changed drastically. I just hope I can get my act together quickly so that we aren't cooped up for too long!

"She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities.  She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway.  She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark.  She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink.  Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child. "

And what a beautiful "baby" she is! Tidbit of advice: put a door handle lock on the inside of her room. She can't get to the lock to lock herself in and she can't get out of her room. That way if she climbs out of bed and you don't hear her, she won't get into mischief while you're sleeping. This gives me a HUGE peace of mind!
