@17 months

Hello precious one,
You are SO incredibly adorable! Daddy and Mommy look at you so often and then just smile at your cuteness.You are ridiculously fun at this age! You have to be the most mischievous of the three at this age/stage in life. You are a STINKER with capital letters. Your favorite play place is in the shower or anywhere there is water (ahem, the toilet!); you have a love affair for sissy's American Girl dolls and tote them all over the house loving on them. 
Your current stats:
Diaper size: 3
Clothing size: 12 - 18 months
Sleep pattern:
1 hour morning nap and 2 - 3 hour afternoon nap
Sleep from about 7:30PM to 7:30AM
You still take your paci to go to sleep, but it doesn't leave your bed

mmmm-ma (mema)
eena (Tina)
good girl
all done
bu bu (puppy)
nana (banana)
night night
bye bye
mo (milk or drink)
bubble bath or bath tub
bu bu (bubby for brother) 

You refuse to:
- use silverware and prefer to eat with your hands
- give kisses on a regular basis :(
- be buckled into your car seat at times

You love:
- showers & bath time
- singing the ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, The Itsy Bitsy Spider, Patty Cake, but your favorite is Row Your Boat. You sing the Row, Row, Row part every.single.time!

You're a master at:

  • running laps around the house
  • crawling up and down the stairs and then back up again
  • being a female version of Lioness from the Charlie Brown show carrying around your beloved Aden & Anais muslin blanket
  • eating twice your weight in food each and every day
  • overfilling your mouth with milk from the sippy and leaving a milk trail behind you (we could do without this)
  • oogling over baby Micah
  • capturing your Mema's attention and beaming at your Papa
  • wrapping Mr. Wesley around your little finger 
  • wrestling with Dawson
  • having dance parties with Gabrielle & Mommy 
  • staying attached to Momma's hip at periods throughout the day - this is fairly new. You lock your legs on tight in hopes of me not putting you down. It's a bit hard to resist when you look up at me with your baby blues, arms extended and say "up". 

    You are a constant ray of sunshine to our days. I don't know that it is possible to love you anymore!
    We are crazy about you baby girl!
    Many, many thanks to our talented friend Christiane Branstrom for the everlasting gift of sharing her photography talents with us.

    Thank you for the update on McKenna.She is the prettiest baby I know. All the new words since I have seen her. I can see how Wes would love her, those big blue eyes are irresistable. She is trying to keep up with her big sister and brother. Enjoy the moment.
