Madelyn: 16 Months


16 months, holy cow baby girl.  You change so much everyday and we love you more each day.

-We love your little curls on the back of your head.  It'll be fun to see what it looks like as it gets longer.

-You are wearing mostly 18 month clothes.  You're getting taller.  Still wearing size 4 diapers.  I think you'll be in them for awhile longer.

-This month, you had lots more visitors.  Gigi and Pops, Mimi and Papa and Aunt Cheryl.  We forgot to mention Aunt Brandy came in last month.  You've had fun with all of them and LOVED all the attention.  

-You are doing so great with your little brother.  Still giving him kisses, trying to pat his head and check out his fingers and toes.

-We think you're getting some more teeth in because you've had a fever the past couple days along with a runny nose.  You normally don't just sit with someone, but you have been.  We're loving all the cuddling.

-Last night, while daddy was at a meeting, you laid on mommy's lap while she was feeding Theo.  You never do this.  Mommy loved it.  We are so happy you sleep well in your bed, but definitely enjoy the extra cuddles.

-You like to "walk" outside holding onto hands and with your walker.

-Love going on walks and shopping (this could get you in trouble someday!  Mommy loves shopping too!)

-You still play well by yourself and talk to all your toys.

-Mommy's teaching you how to rock your dolly and give her a bottle.  You're very interested in helping give your brother a bottle.

-Daddy taught you how to "jump" on the pillows.  You LOVE all your daddy time and love the new game.

-Not sure how much you weigh, probably around 24 lbs.

-You swam in your little pool for the first time.  You enjoy splashing everyone who comes near you and it makes you giggle so much.

-Still eating great and able to take bigger bites.

-And of course, sleeping like a champ.  Still 2 naps a day (morning and afternoon) and going down for the night at about 7pm and sleeping til 7:30-8am.

16 Months!

-Mommy and Daddy
