17 months

You are 17 months old today! I realized I haven't done one of these in a while so here goes. At 17 months you:

-are really tall (90th percentile for height)

-are really heavy (I think you weigh about 28 lbs. now - you were in the 85th percentile at your last Dr. appt.)

-blow kisses

-have become a very picky eater

-love to go "bye bye". Outside, to the store, just for a ride in the car....it doesn't matter to you, you just love to go anywhere

-are saying about 25-30 words/phrases including: hi, bye bye, no, yeah, dog, bear, shoes, dada, mama, okay, papa, moo moo, i love you, thank you, jack, fan, baby, bubbles, and a bunch of other things we can't quite understand. Your two newest favorite things to say are "see it" (while pointing at something) and "what's that?"

-give real kisses when we ask for them

-sleep 12-13 hours at night and take one 2 - 2 1/2 hour nap a day

-have 8 teeth (and more on their way in)

-love macaroni and cheese, string cheese, black beans, and fruit

-rarely cry or fuss (although you have begun throwing an occasional tantrum but they are few and far between)

-don't like to share your toys or your bathtub (as we found out when your cousin was here)

-still love to dance and have quite a few new moves

-give big bear hugs

-love your dolly more than ever (but we actually made it out of the house without her 3 times this week)

-are becoming quite the daddy's girl

-can tell me what you do (or don't) want and that makes life easier

-wear 18-24 month clothes (although you have outgrown most of your 18 mo. outfits)

-wear a size 4 shoe

-have a million different faces that you make and are so expressive

-have very little patience

-just get cuter and cuter everyday!
We love you so much Jules! You are the biggest blessing to mommy and daddy and we have enjoyed every single day that you have been with us! We can't wait to see what you do next!

Happy 17 months, Jules!! It's fun to see how different our kiddos are when they are just one month different in age. I can't wait to see them side by side...when are you coming to visit???? =)

She is absolutely precious!

Wow - 17 months already!?!?!? She looks like such the little girl....where'd the baby go? Don't you think that each stage is your favorite, then the next one comes and it just keeps getting better!

Put a brick on her head. She's getting too big too fast. Can't wait to get some of those big bear hugs in a few days!

Doesn't the time just fly by?! I need to do one of these type posts myself...

Such a cutie! And enjoy all that communication! We are NOT having that this time with a boy....Grady has maybe 7-10 words. Definitely different than my girls!

So cute, and so fun! I love that picture of her on the little pink chair.
