Emma: 18 Months
Height: 33 inches (84th percentile)
Weight: 28.2 lbs (96th percentile)
Head: 47.4 (79th percentile)
Diapers: Size 5
Shoes: Size 6 and a few still size 5s
Clothes: 18 month and some 24month/2T
Milestones: Language this month has really taken off. Your speech is getting much clearer and becoming less prompted for you to speak. Newest words and funniest expressions that come with are "outside, uh oh, oh no, wow, 'nack, Booper (cooper), down, bite, shoes, socks, all done, alright" are the most recent developments probably. You are learning how to run which looks quite funny and you get going and almost always end up falling forward. Jumps are getting better to where sometimes both feet come off the ground.
Likes: Eating everyone elses food that is on their plates and just wants "a bite", taking her baby all around the house, being outside all day every day, the beach, the water, the sand, Mickey Mouse clubhouse is still #1, taking her shoes on and off, putting on anyones shoes that are around her and trying to walk in them, climbing on anything, and still loves her bath time with daddy every night.
Dislikes: being told "no", being taken from something that is dangerous to her, sometimes getting into her carseat, taking medicine, getting her nose cleared, and like most kiddos going to the doc.
Emma, you are so much fun and I just love watching you explore this big world day in and day out. The things that fascinate you the most and give you the biggest smiles are sometimes such simple things. I am learning so much about cherishing the little things because of your outlook on life. You are smart as a whip and keep me on my toes. You sure know how to test your limits to see how far you can push mommy/daddy. We are challenged every day to make sure we are setting you up for success. We love you so much and can't wait to see what the future brings for you sunshine.
