Eighteen Months

Miss Cassandra is now 18 months old! A year and a half....totally crazy!

She's still wearing 12 month clothes! In fact, some of her 12 months shorts fall right off of her because they're too big! I'm about to drag out her 18 month stuff soon, but really I have no idea what will fit her. She's a peanut! She's still in size 3 diapers for day, 4's for night.

She is still a really good sleeper! Sleeping through the night for 11-12 hours and usually a 2hour (or longer) nap in the afternoon. I really can't complain about her sleep habits!

Her eating is still hit or miss. Some days she loves what we give her and other days she doesn't. She of course devours fruit (just like her sister). She really likes yogurt, bagels, waffles, pasta these days. She had ketchup/dip for the first time and was really into it-so sometimes I'll give her some to try and coax her to eat some sort of meat! Of course it usually ends up with her covered in ketchup/dip and needing a bath!

At her pediatrician appointment, the doctor told us she is talking like a 2yr old...and I totally believe it! This girl is amazing with her words! Some new ones: "ABCD", "ku ta ta" (Hakuna Matata), "pancake", "more music", "rainbow", "oops", "pigtails", "fish", "butterfly" and you also say most names now. One day I started saying the colors of the rainbow...when I said "red", you said "orange". Then I said "orange" and you said "yellow"-I was totally amazed! You also point to our faces and say "eyes", "nose", "hair", etc.

You also sprouted tooth #12 finally! You just have your pointy canines left and your 2yr molars. Also this month you started shrugging your shoulders! And for the first time, you went to time out. I don't even remember why, but Daddy told you to go to timeout and you walked to the step and sat down all by yourself! You sat there perfectly until we told you to get up. I have to admit, it was pretty darn cute!

Here are your photos for this month:

I told you to say "cheese"
