eighteen

that’s how many months old my baby turned last week. one year and a half.  i can’t quite wrap my head around the idea that she’s grown and learned so much. from being a teeny tiny 5lb 11oz newborn to an active, bubbly toddler. here are some highlights about what izzie loves these days.

  • long baths
  • running naked
  • potted plants, because the dirt tastes really good (apparently)
  • dogs

izabella’s frequently used words

  • “st-op” (stop)
  • “bebe” (baby–no matter if the that child she’s pointing to happens to be 10)
  • “oh no!” , “oh my!”, “oh wow!”  or simply, “no!” (that she says very clearly)

    Happy 18 months to your sweet Izzie! It just goes by too quickly hey. I had to laugh when I reading ‘hogging Mommy’s pillow’ – Oliver is JUST the same! He has a bit of a pillow obsession and doesn’t like to share lol.
