Us @ 19 Months :)

Two big things have happened.

1. Because she is the size of her crib mattress, we have just full blown converted her into a full sized bed. She also wakes up still to come get me in the night. I usually crawl into her crib with her and sleep, and I just can't take it anymore! Now, I will fit! Last night was her first night in her new big girl bed and I think she may have been scared. She cried every time I tried to lay in it with her, but later was fine. Who knows.

2. She took her first poo in the tub. I had to scoop it with my hand, gross!

18 month well check (a month late)

Weight: 29.4 lbs
Height 34.6 inches
Head circumference: 19.7 inches

She is around the 97th percentile for all categories.

Good news is she has had the last of her shots until she starts school! Sooo happy!

Sickness is officially OVER! Thank goodness. That was no fun. I think she will miss her amoxicillin. She liked getting it out of the fridge for me.

My poor baby

What was supposed to be a well check appt yesterday morning turned into a regular visit. Come to find out she's got her first ear infection. I would have never guessed that, she never once signaled to me that her ear bothered her. I assumed it was her throat because all she does is drool and cry when she swallows or coughs. She was extremely congested, faucet nosed, fever and all. I felt so bad and completely helpless not being able to make her feel better. She has been on amoxicillin for a few days now and is doing much better.

Finally! Progress!

Yesterday was a groundbreaking day for her!

Yesterday morning, as all mornings, she walks up to my face and stares at me with her big silly grin. I open my eyes and say "good morning baby" and she says "hi" clear as day.

Later, she was playing with her books next to Chris and his buddy Fred. Usually she makes a very common "shu jits" noise, but this time it sounded more like "what's this?" This makes perfect sense because when we read books I point and ask "what's this?".

Then...that evening she wanted to sit in her carseat while Dad was installing his car stereo. I stood next to her, and she kept reaching for me saying "gish gish gish". Then I realized she wanted to kiss me! So we played that game over and over.

I really hope she keeps this up! A lot of times she starts doing something and stops. I have been anticipating talking since she was born, so her being slow is KILLING ME! Ha ha, I'm just so excited that she is finally trying. Now I have to figure out all the other sounds she makes...

On a sad note, my perfect little baby bubble world has been compromised. She has caught a nasty cold with a fever. I was up with her all night last night. Hearing her cough up junk and watching snot pour down her face is breaking my heart.
