18 months

Time sure does fly. Our little one is now 18 months. (stats to come after pending dr. appt)

She is doing pretty well in nursery, we can leave her for most of it and she doesn't get too sad until the end. No matter when church is it interrupts a nap it seems:) She is quite the picky eater, but, I know I just need to keep offering her over and over the good stuff until she figures out she likes it.

Pickles, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, jello, all types of berries (including black!), pasta, juice, cookies, crackers, cereal, oatmeal, bread, pb&j sandwhiches, rice, onions, lemons, limes, french fries and all things potatoes, diet coke (who gives that to her???), bananas, soup, ice cream, lolipops
Doesn't Love:
broccoli, peas, carrots, um, vegetables in general, candy! Haha.

We are still doing a bottle before bedtimes and I am trying to wean her but this girl won't drink anything that even looks like milk out of a sippy. I am a little lazy sometimes though because I like cuddling her and rocking her while giving her a bottle.

Her sleep routine is so set that when she gets tired she goes into her room and starts pointing to her bed and tries to get her blanky out. We are down to one 2 hour nap a day and still sleeping 12 hrs at night.

She loves to play with make-up, carry around purses and fill them up with things. She puts as many little things as her tiny hands can hold and carries them all around.

We love Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and jewelry, Little Einsteins and playing with Molly. pretending to "work" on the computer, throwing temper tantrums when she gets her hair done or brushes her teeth. Loves painting nails and playing outside.

We moved up to size 4 shoes, hooray, but we are still wearing 12 month clothes and size 3 diapers. That's ok because we can wear some clothes from last summer again! Daddy really likes that:)

Dad is still gone a lot so we have lots of time together, WRONG, we have ALL our time together. I'm always looking for more ways to get out of the house and have fun without spending too much money!

 at her little table, our media cabinet sits a little too low for us but perfect for Eliza's height. She likes to take things and set them right in front of the TV, whether it's on or not, and it's like her personal play table. I think we will be getting her own one in the future, or a much taller media cabinet.
I know this pic is a little blurry, but I couldn't not post it because of her serious model face. I mean she's got that stare down!
Since Ty was gone on V-Day, he set up this little scavenger hunt
Here I am with my goodies. I love that man.

Oh my goodness -- that first picture is gorgeous! BUT I thought that couldn't be your little one, she's too old and big! Time flies, i guess.
