Claire - Eighteen Months

This girl is growing way too big, way too fast.
I would say this is Claire at 18 months, but I may be a little late.

18 month stats:
20 lbs, 10.5 oz (6%)
31.5 inches (46%)

Claire, honey, you are the sweetest little girl and the best big sister.  Here are some things I want to remember about you at this age:

*You started daycare - and soon after learned the word "Mine" which is now one of your favorites.  Ha!  You had a hard time adjusting at first but now you have so much fun and usually don't want to leave when I come to pick you up.
*When I come pick you up from daycare, your face lights up when you see me and you always come running.  It just melts my heart.
*You are pretty good at sharing when you want to.  Otherwise everything is Mine!
*You are starting to get a little sassy.  You like to tell us no no when you don't get your way.
*You love your family - especially baby Ben.  You always want to be near him. You also like to face time your grandparents.  You can say Mama & Papa and you always ask to see your puppies when talking to Mama Wilmes.
*You are getting more teeth!  You now have 4 on top and 4 on bottom.  Your molars came a little later and you are currently working on the next set.  Yikes!
*You are starting to look like such a big girl. 
*And you think you are such a big girl.  You want to do everything by yourself.  You like to take your shoes and sock off ALL THE TIME!
*You know a lot of your body parts: eyes, ears, mouth, nose, tongue, chin, teeth (daddy's favorite!), arms, legs, toes, fingers, belly, hair.  Pretty impressive!
*Your favorite book is still I Love You Stinky Face.  We read that one alot.  Followed closely by Moo Baa La La La.
*You also like the Bizzy Bear books.
*You can make a lot of animal sounds - cow, sheep, horse, puppy, cat.
*You LOVE your babies.  You have 3 baby dolls and they are all your favorite.  Most nights you have to take all 3 to bed with you.  You like to take them for rides in the little stroller, change their diapers and wipe them. 
*You also like to play kitchen.  You are really cute when you put on my large oven mitts and try to put stuff in the microwave.
*You are getting pretty good at puzzles.  You like the farm animal puzzle.
*You like being outside and going for walks.  You like to try to help push the stroller.
*At eighteen months, you had about a dozen words - now you have too many to count!  Mommy, daddy, baby, puppy, book, ball, cheese, pizza, bath, nose, eyes, thank you, bye bye, please, night night, milk, water, jump, hop, march, poop, stinky, oh wow, uh oh, go irish, more, no, shoes, socks, hi, Josh, and so many more that I wish I could think of.
*You have also started putting together phrases like more cheese please, baby go night night, hi mommy I pooped.  I am just blown away by how smart you are.

Love you Claire Bear!
