18 Months!

Wow!  The last week has been sooo busy--I haven't had a chance to blog at all.  I keep telling myself that life will slow down soon....but that never seems to happen.

Anyway, the princess turned eighteen months old on Tuesday!  She's halfway to being TWO YEARS OLD.  I can't believe it.

Weight: TBA (Haha! I keep meaning to do this, but can't ever remember to until I start working on this post...after bedtime.)

Height: See above.

Clothing Size: 12 months/18 months

Diapers: Size 4

Shoes:  Size 6

Eating: Aniston continues to be a great eater!  She will try anything and there are very few things she doesn't like.  (She's not a fan of corn or peas.)  She loves fruit--blueberries, watermelon, strawberries, cantaloupe, oranges, pears, bananas....we haven't found any fruit she doesn't like.  Lately we've given her apple slices and sliced grapes for the first time, and she loves them.  She also tried muscadines from our vine last week.  Aniston is a huge fan of applesauce (the squeezy kind), yogurt, goldfish, teddy grahams, and frozen yogurt/ice cream.  She loves all kinds of meat and veggies, especially green beans.  If I had to name one thing that is her absolute favorite food, I would have to say tomatoes.  That's a little strange, I know, but she LOVES them.  (She's going to be so disappointed this winter when tomatoes aren't around constantly and aren't as good!)  She's doing better with her spoon and fork, but would still rather use her fingers at this point.  She loves milk, apple juice, orange juice, and water. 

Hair/Eyes: Aniston's eyes are blue. Her hair is a really light brown. She has the cutest curls at the back of her hair.  It has really grown over the last few months.  When it's wet, it reaches falls between her shoulder blades! 

Sleep: Aniston sleeps pretty well most nights.  Her bedtime is around 7:30 (sometimes a little earlier, sometimes a little later).

Likes:
--Dancing
--Sneaking up on people or pets (When she sneaks, she bends her knees while she walks.  That's how you know she's sneaking.  Precious!)
--Playing outside
--Tickling and being tickled (She says "tickle tickle tickle".)
--Yo Gabba Gabba and Wonder Pets
--The Sid Shuffle from Ice Age 4
--Baby dolls and real babies
--Playing ball with Lucy (Aniston throws or kicks the ball and Lucy pushes it back with her nose.)
--Pretend play.  Lately she has started "cooking" in her play kitchen while Bradley and I fix dinner.  She also pretends that everything is a phone.  (She definitely gets that from Bradley, by the way.  He's much more of a phone talker than I am, believe it or not.)
--Cleaning!  The girl can't stand a mess, and is constantly picking things up and wiping things with a cloth.  She loves throwing trash away. 
--Driving her cozy coupe.  She's finally learned how to sit on the seat and push with her feet without sliding through the bottom.  It's much more fun to stay in the car rather than underneath it.
--Blowing and popping bubbles outside

Fun Stuff:
--Aniston has nine teeth--the top four front, bottom four front, and one molar.
--She can walk on her tippy toes.
--She is really loving.  She loves giving hugs and kisses (wet, sloppy ones are her specialty!).  When she hugs, she says, "Awww!"
--"Uh-oh" is a favorite phrase right now.
--She is a people person and an entertainer.  She loves being the center of attention and will do anything to make you smile. 
--She has learned to squeal.  Loudly.
