18 Months




I simply cannot emphasize how much I am loving 18 months!
I know at every stage so far, I've said it's the best, but truly, this is the best!
I am telling you, no other form of entertainment is needed when you have a one-and-a-half year old.
They are hysterical. This girl keeps me laughing constantly.
She has her grumpy moments of course, but all in all, she's such a happy little thing, and such a joy!
Since I am one of those bad moms who doesn't keep a baby book and forgets to write milestones down (and it's not going any better with the second unfortunately!),
this post is mostly for my benefit...
to be able to look back someday and read some of the funny things Addison was doing at this age.

I'll start with the above picture...that would be my stylish baby wearing some sweet pig pj's, my striped headband and of course, sporting a stolen pacifier (Lily's)... Busy pushing her dog 'Scout' in the stroller.











I'm bummed about the quality of these pictures, but I just can't get a good (non-blurry) one of her these days. She won't be still for anything! As you can see though, her absolute favorite activity lately is taking everything out of the tupperware cabinet and getting inside of it. She shuts the door and just peeks out at us every once in awhile.




She is so loving these days! She wasn't a cuddler at all when she was younger, but she loves giving us hugs, which I just soak up since I've felt deprived until now:) She especially likes to love on her little sis...which is so sweet, but sometimes a little scary, especially for Lily I'm sure! She definitely loves her baby sister though:)



I think she's her mama's daughter...she definitely doesn't like getting all bundled up for winter days,
but she tolerates it, especially if she gets to go for a walk on dad's back! Unfortunately it's been waaaay too cold, not to mention icy, to get to go for walks in a few weeks. Hoping for a nice (in the 30s) weekend!!

Some funny things I just want to remember someday...
Walking through any store and Addison yelling at the top of her lungs, while waving frantically, "HI!!!" to any stranger that is in our vicinity.
"Up peese, dow peese...DUP peese!!!" She gets up and down confused, and eventually just combines the words:)
Hey-shew=thank you
Yes mam...said to both Brad and I...lol!
'Reading' books out loud to herself and singing songs in her own made up language.
She's really into spinning and dancing...and a very creative dancer I must say!

Ok I'm out of time for the morning, I could go on and on.
I just don't want to forget these precious moments of hers.
Happy Wednesday! :)

  1. I know what you mean about good pictures being hard to get, now--my little one is almost 20 months, and I feel I spend most of my time now taking video...I just don't have a camera that can handle his moves!
