18 Months Old!

Luckily I wrote this post before Laiken was born but still needed to add pictures and I've finally got that done!  We took Kinley to get her pictures taken the week before Laiken came, thank goodness!  She totally didn't want to be there so we almost left without buying anything but I figured that these show Kinley's personality at this point in her life so we bought a few. :)

Oh, and I should mention that Kinley turned 18 months on March 19...I'm a little behind.

Kinley -

You are officially a year and a half old, my how time flies!  Here's what you've been up to lately:

Words that you use the most:  up, down, yogurt, strawberry, paci, make animal sounds, garbage, walk, and we're still working on grandma (sometimes it sounds like Buga or muga)
You can say the names of your favorite shows - Doc, Jake, Mickey

You point to most of your body parts when asked.

You love being held and carried around but I still do it because I know you won't be the "baby" much longer.
You're getting better at feeding yourself with a spoon and fork.  You love to cook with me and always want to dump ingedients in the bowl and stir which usually results in a mess.

I've always thought you were going to be left handed but lately you've been using your right hand more often.
You've discovered a love for drawing and coloring.  I can give you a notebook/coloring book and a crayon and you will go to town, coloring a little bit on every page.  You also love to use the magna-doodle at g-ma & g-pa's house.  You always want everyone else involved in coloring so we all take turns doodling with you.  My favorite is when you lay on your tummy and cock your head to the side while you color.  I think you look so big!

You're still definitely a mommy's girl which melts my heart but I'm sure it breaks daddy's heart, too.  You two have lots of fun together but when you have a choice, you always want me to hold you.  We're hoping this changes when little sister comes along so you and daddy can be buddies while I'm tending to baby.

You weigh around 22 pounds, wear size 4 diapers, & mostly 18 month clothes.  You have 12 teeth (front 8 & 4 molars) but 2 more bottom teeth look like they'll be here soon!

We can't wait to see what the next few months bring!  We love you!
