Facelift and 18 months

I've been inspired to rekindle my blog. I couldn't possibly fill in everything that has been going on since the turn of the new year, but suffice it to say that S is constant entertainment - and enjoyment - around the clock. She turned 18 months yesterday but sometimes acts like a little girl twice her age. She is my my monkey-hugging, adventure-seeking, always-laughing, curly-haired, pizza-loving, purse-toting, running, cuddling, swinging, sliding, sweet S!

Her vocabulary is countless and she soaks up everything that she hears. She mimics what we say and then incorporates those words into conversation. Her favorite saying as of late have been "mess" (thank you for pointing out the dishes in the sink to Mommy, S), "outside please", "oh, Papa", "squirrels!", "oh, Pat" (her lovie), "up, please", "underdog", "all done", "I love you", "slide please", "that's mine", "brush please" (for toothbrush) "eee eee" and "neigh" (for monkey and horse, respectively), "pee pee" (when she has a dirty diaper... of any kind)... I could go on and on.

She is quite the adventurer. Swings - the higher the better - hence "underdog". Thanks, R, for teaching her that one. Slides - the more slippery the better. Her favorite thing to do is run up and down the Downtown Mall, checking out every store and nook.

Favorite foods: watermelon, pizza, grilled cheese, ice cream (with rainbow sprinkles, of course) mandarin oranges. She's pretty picky these days, and her weight has tumbled down the growth chart. She sits at about the 15-20th% for weight, weighing in around 22lb even.

Here are some recent pictures.

Z was visiting and we had a wonderful time with her! Here's a picture of S in the wheelbarrow while we were gardening outside...
