This is Amelia’s 18 month update

Amelia’s 18 month update!

Amelia will be 18 months on Friday! I stole this post idea from Lori over at I Can Grow People. She does them for her son Porter and her daughter Quinn.

What Amelia is Wearing These Days:

  • 18 month clothes and some  24 month too. I bought 24 months for Christmas presents, but pants are long.  She has a few 2T and 3T shirts that are long, but cute over leggings.
  • Size 5 diapers at night, but mostly pull ups during the day!  They are just easier to get on her and stay on better.
  • She still loves shoes. We got her some honest to goodness sneakers in size 3 in October and she already needs size four. Yes, she still has teeny tiny feet! A lot of those sweet infant shoes fit her, but the fabric souls are too slippery.18 month update

What Amelia is Eating:

  • She is pretty much eating everything we are and wants it all – like steak!
  • She is finally eating some things that Connor prefers like mac and cheese which makes meal prep a little simpler.
  • Chocolate!  She finally figured out what all the fuss is about with her brother and his treats.  Heaven forbid you give him something that you don’t also share with her.
  • Gummy vitamins – if her big brother gets one she better too.

What Amelia Likes These Days:

  • Baby dolls – and dressing and giving them bottles
  • Stealing the toilet paper (and unrolling it down the hall)
  • Anything her brother is playing with
  • Having her hair in pony tails
  • Using grown up silverware – no more cute kid plastic silverware for her!18 month update

What Amelia Doesn’t Like These Days:

  • Waiting for dinner
  • Sleeping in her own bed
  • Getting pushed around by her big brother.  She is ready to take him on!
  • New people in new situations.  She is very clingy when we go some place new these days.

What Amelia is Doing:

  • Walking, walking, walking
  • Identifying body parts – she has nose, belly, toes and hair downcold!
  • Coloring – more drawing, less crayon eating!
  • Being messy.
  • Following more and more verbal directions.
  • Giving lots of kisses18 month update

What Amelia is saying:

  • Mama……… all the time
  • No – to all the questions, even if she means yes
  • Why?
  • Dank you
  • Once she said “love you” when I dropped her off at the sitter’s
  • Something that sounds like “Bart” and “Ben”, two of the cats

What We are Working On:

  • Sleeping in her own bed
  • Not being so messy
  • Putting things way and cleaning up
  • Whining less! I know, I know… But a girl can dream!18 month update

  1. This is so adorable. I can’t totally relate with the toilet paper and silverware with my 19 month old right now. I write him a letter every month on my blog telling him what’s going on with him that month so I can keep a record. This is definitely a great idea to do as well. Thank you for sharing with us at Countdown in Style! Don’t forget to stop by to see if you are featured Friday! xo

  2. Adorable, Ann. I keep saying I’ll do these updates, since I love reading them, but I never do. Thanks for sharing and linking up with Countdown in Style! Don’t forget to come back on Friday to see if you were featured!
