What a fun and oh-so-busy 18 months it has been!

You are such a sweet and happy girl! Your personality is so fun and your facial expressions keeps us constantly laughing!

You know are funny so you do and say things that you know will make us laugh! You are so proud of yourself every time we laugh at you!

You are such a loving little girl! You love to give hugs and kisses. You love hugging your friends at church and always say “awww” as you give them a hug.

You are very affectionate towards your baby dolls! You love to love on them!

I cannot believe how much you love your brother! “Bro-deee” is the first person you ask for each morning when you wake-up. You love for him to be close by and your eyes light-up when you see him!

As much as you love each other, you and Brody fight some too! You don’t put up with much from him and usually scream anytime he does something you don’t like. You are a bit dramatic at times!

Playing with Brody has made you one tough little girl! It takes something pretty rough to hurt you or make you cry!

You are so smart. I know I’m your mom and I am partial, but you really have a big vocabulary for someone your age! Your teachers always talk about how many words you can say. You do think all animals bark or quack, but I think you will get those sounds mastered before too much longer. :)

You love to point to your belly, nose, eyes, ears and mouth and say those words as you point to each body part.

You like to play pretend! You love to “cook” and then have us “eat” whatever it is that you made. You also love to carry around one of your little purses and pretend you are going “bye-bye”. You also love to wear your backpack!

You have started singing words and phrases to songs that we sing! It’s so cute to hear your little voice singing along with us!

You love to cuddle with your daddy! If you have a bad dream you want him. He can still get you to fall asleep on his chest or he can rock you to sleep.  You get SO excited when he comes home at night!

You love to snuggle with your baby dolls and blankets. You call both blankets and dolls “baby”.

You LOVE books and love to be read to each day!

You love to play outside! It’s been so warm and nice lately that we have been able to spend a lot of time outside.

You love hairbows! Every morning when I dress you, you pat the top of your head and say, “bow”! It makes me so happy!

You have become a little opinionated about your clothes. We wrestle occasionally in the mornings as I try to dress you! You don’t always like what I pick out for you to wear!

I love dressing you up because you are so sweet and girly! You even look so girly wearing a hat with your smocked dress! :)

You bring us SO much joy!!! I’m so thankful God gave you to us. We love you more than you will ever know!

Sweet girl! I love that she asks for Brody first thing in the morning. That must make you smile. :)
