Little L's 18 Month Well Child Visit

I can't even believe that my baby is 18 months old already!  Time is just flying by but it is so fun!

Here are her stats from her check-up:
Height: 33" - 75-90%
Weight: 24 lbs and 9.5 oz - 50%  (I promise not to post her weight on the internet when she gets older!)

Little L is doing just great and she is growing up just like she supposed to!  She is able to do basically all of the skills they expect to see at this age (walking fast, siting in chair, kicking/throwing balls, stacking blocks, turning pages in books, naming some objects, pointing to body parts on request, shows affection to stuffed animals, play-acts with toys like telephones, puckers lips and kisses parents).

Some new words she has added to her vocabulary (which is growing EVERY day!): butterfly, shoe, potato, ball, more, cheese, juice, Cheetos (yes she knows what those are!), wee (which means swing!), video (yes she knows what those are too!), milk, yum, cookie (oh yeah, she knows what they are too!), please, Mommy, Daddy, and many more!

And the icing on the cake...She says "I Love You!" :)  It sounds a little more like "I Do" but I'll take it!  The best is when she says it first!  Melts my heart every time!

One other thing that she is doing all the time now is "tickling"!  It is so cute because she loves to "tickle" everything by wiggling her fingers and saying "tickle, tickle, tickle"!  She was even tickling her swing the other day!  Just pure joy!  :)

Here is her 18 month picture with the giant puppy my hubby gave me on one of our first dates!

And here are some of the older pictures of when she was just a babe with the puppy!

Yup, definitely cuter and cuter! I love the month by month with the animal! We did that until 12 mos... : ) I LOVE that she says, "I love you"! What a sweet girl! MVJ gives kissies complete with lip smacks, but we haven't heard the words yet...
