I am a day late getting this up but
Happy 17 Months Lyla Faith!!! Our love for you grows more and more with each passing month!
You probably weigh about 25 lbs (getting way to heavy to carry..ha)
Size 4 diapers & 18 month clothes
Still in a size 3 shoe...we think it has grown just a little but not much.
You still go to therapy once a week and you are progressing perfectly well each month. Ms. Margarita thinks that you will be walking by your 18 month mark, so we shall see!
You do all the things you are supposed to at therapy but at home you are just a CLIMBER...if you can get up on your tip-toes, hike your leg up and get a grip you are onto whatever it is you can find!
You are a water and outside girl but it has been so hot here lately we haven't been able to do much of either. Your Gigi bought you a fancy little pool so hopefully when we go there this weekend you will get to play a lot outside.
You have a large vocabulary but you still aren't consistent with saying all of your words when asked. Your favorites here lately are nite-nite, nose, &, my mommy.
You love for daddy to hide in the covers and you find him. It is so funny when you do find him because you go as fast as you can and just fall into him, I know this makes his days.
You are still sleeping really well but there are a few nights here lately when you have woke up in the middle of the night for a few hours screaming...I think you may be having nightmares or your tummy hurts.
You haven't been the best eater here lately either. You are going through spurts and I have tried coming up with new things for you to eat but most of those haven't worked either. I am sure it's just a stage and you will eat when you get ready.
You are such a happy girl and are SO funny. We just sit back and watch you and laugh hysterically most nights. You are full of personality and it makes my heart melt.
You are so easy to take places because you are such a people watcher (you don't like going to them) but as long as they keep their distance you are fine with just staring at them :)
Your hair is in beautiful curls but it is crazy to me how long it is when we wet it in the bathtub at night. I don't know how much longer we are going to go without getting at least your bangs cut because they are driving me crazy being in your face.
I think you are really missing daycare and playing with your friends so I hope when you go back in a month the transition will be easy. You do love going to gymanstics once a week also.
You still love to chase the dogs around but most of the time you both keep your distance from each other.
You do this cute thing when I ask you where your mommy is you pat your chest and say My Mommy :)
You scream out DADDY!!! When he walks away or I ask you where he is
You have done a lot better with your cruising around furniture until you are ready to climb
You have also started trying to stand in the middle of the floor without anything in front of you..which also makes me think you are getting the hang of this walking too
You hate when we close the baby gate behind you, you will stand behind it jerking on the rails screaming until we come let you into the living room.
We really can't leave you alone in any room because we have to make sure those two feet stay on the ground.
When you get something or go some where you think you aren't supposed to you get so excited and start giggling.
You love to tell the dogs STOP! or NO! when they start barking or get close to you.
Your favorite food is spaghetti and you do love some chocolate milk :)
You know we are going to call Gigi every night and sometimes you will talk up a storm and others you are super quiet because you get distracted easily by your toys (or tv)
You LOVE to "read"..you took your first trip to the library and you went crazy over all of the books.
Anytime music comes on you are moving and grooving..I know once you can stand good you are going to be a dancing machine.
We love you to the moon and back little diva you are our world and we are beyond thankful for you!!!!
