Nora: 18 months


I can not believe Nora is 18 months. She is growing by the day and turning into quite the little person. She is the sweetest and softest little toddler and has the best laugh.  I love her.

Weight: 26 lbs- I know huge.

Size: Wearing 18 months to 2T clothing.  She has a very large, adorable and especially tickle-y toddler belly.

Eat: Favorite Foods are the classic mac and cheese, french fries, and loves salad.  I never really heard of a toddler liking salad but she gets pretty excited to eat the lettuce.  Least favorite foods are currently peas and bananas.

Sleep: Little did I know, that at 18 months it starts a sleep regression.  Tim and I were pretty strict about setting up a bed time routine and she typically goes to bed at around 7 and then wakes up around 8.  But now she lays down in her crib at bed time, cries and cries until we come into her room, and then once she knows we are in her room she laughs and lays back down- that little trickster. 

Baby Milestones: Lots of words! It surprises me how much more she understands everyday and when she pops out with a new word and even though it's not very clear- she has started scolding the dogs.  Now the pugs are trouble makers and she tells them to be quiet. lol She has mastered pointing to her nose and toes. I think my favorite thing is she starting to play pretend with her little stuffed animals and creatures and has also started coloring.  She also has learned how to drag the kitchen chairs around the kitchen to get into her favorite drawers.. like the knife and silverware drawer. 

Loves: Ugh my phone and ipad. She claps for herself when she plays a game a beats a level. She loves any sort of writing utensil especially pens or markers. and I have already had to clean up crayon from the walls.     

Hates: Still hates the vacuum. Even the sight of it she gets pretty upset.  I didn't realize that a vaccuum was so traumatic.

How adorable! I am so interested to read about what kids are doing at different ages since I don't have my own yet.

oh this is so adorable! i love hearing all these little things about nora. she is such a doll and that is such a fun age. it certainly has its challenges, like sleep, but that's why they are just so darn cute because you know when you go in her bedroom and she starts giggling it just melts you, even if 5 seconds before that you were thinking "ahhhh, go to sleep, pleeeeaaaase." happy 18 months nora!

It's so funny she likes lettuce. Pearl still has no idea what to do with it. She picks it out of everything and sets it aside.

This is so adorable! I hope you're printing these out and making like a milestones book for her to be embarrassed about when she's older. ;)

What a little cutie pie! She's the same age as my niece Ayana! They sound like they're similar in their development. My niece also loves the iPhone and will make her daddy / my brother play videos of HERSELF over and over again, ha ha.

Aw, vacuums are a little traumatic! They're so loud and she could totally be sucked up into it! I get it, Nora, I get it. xo
