18 months

Harper is just about to be 19 months, but I can still get in under the wire!

She is really turning that corner from baby to kid lately. Thankfully she still has that delicious pudge and adorable toes, but in other ways she looks more grown up every day. 

She’s big on imitation. Loves to wear our clothes, which is so cute.

Her hair’s long enough to be pulled back, but whenever I try to do it she just pulls it out.

She’s gone through phases of wanting to sit in her car seat in the middle of the room or climbing up into her stroller just to hang out.

Her appetite is unbelievable. Sometimes it seems like she eats as much as we do.

But I guess you need a lot of calories to fuel toddler energy.

The best part about this age is watching her starting to form language. She has new words all the time: brush (for brushing her teeth), bubbles, duck and various other animals and animal sounds.

Hearing her teeny voice across the room just kills me.

Unfortunately it turned out that we could not escape the 18-month sleep regression. But I think we’re so used to sleeplessness now, it’s just part of the deal.

Harper has a doctor’s appointment soon so we’ll find out how much she’s grown. After several months of going down on the growth chart I think she’s catching up!
