18 Months

Nov 12, 2015
My baby is 18 months...18 months!!!


And because I love things like this, here are Ruby and Macey in the same dress on their first day of nursery. 

tear. Love these sisters and can't believe how completely different they look.  



Ruby is very social, busy, curious and opinionated.  




She is non-stop.  





She does not like to be contained and has figured how to get out of her high chair buckle and all straps on grocery carts. She doesn't like to keep her pj's on and has developed the lovely habit of removing them and her diaper while in her bed.  






Ruby's Words:

Baby (pretty much refers to anything she wants)
mommy
daddy
macey
may mee (hold me)
CJ (refers to most animals)
nice kitty
puppy
Animal sounds: roar, quack, moo
me
mine
peaz
tank you
he go (here you go)
pop-pop
na-nee (nana)
mickey







Ruby's Favorites:

Shoes
babies
stuffed animals
real animals
people
keyboards
books






Ruby's Pastimes:

climbing onto the table
playing outside with her friends & getting pulled in the wagon
tackling Crew
dancing
eating anything she can find. she often steals the boys food the moment they       leave it unattended.  
emptying anything that she can find too



Ruby almost makes me want to have another baby, that's how awesome she is. ;)

Can't believe she is 18 months. I sure have seen enough of her. Love her zest for life. My favorite word she says is Na-Nee. =)

18 months

Our baby is looking and acting less and less like a baby.  


And more and more like a typical crazy toddler.



Some things to know about Crew at 18 months:

-He is obsessed with all idevices and has been known to get into my phone, even with the passcode on.

- He is very social and loves to get out of the house and go places.  I often have people comment to me, as I am unloading the car, that it sounds like I have a dinosaur in there.  Nope. It's just Crew, screaming out of excitement, ready to see what we are doing.  

- His favorite things are balls, books, his blankets, and Miles' dinosaur toys.  He also has developed a love for the Villain figurines in Macey's princess box.  I often walk in on him growling and attacking while playing with Maleficent or Ursula.  



He also likes guns and swords. Yep, he's pretty typical boy.  


- He is better with silverware than the other 2 kids.



- He has also developed a love for the Dinosaur Museum and freaks out the moment we pull into the parking lot.




- Words: ball, bye, up, ap (apple), ba-ba (drink), mom, dad, h-sound (holly), raf (blanket), thank you, peez, eyes
  animal noises: T-Rex, anything else that growls, dog, duck


I am kind of obsessed with this noisy, happy, crazy boy.  Not to mention his curly hair and long eyelashes.  My new favorite thing he does...Run up, grab my legs, make a kissing noise, and then says "thank you" once he receives his kiss. Yep, he knows how to work the system.  Helps to make up for the millions of messes he creates for me during a typical day.

He is a happy, sweet and lovable little boy! We love those big blue eyes and curly lashes!
Hhhh
I'm so glad you count the H sound as my name on this official list :)
Angie
What a doll! I cracked up that he likes the villain figurines. Makes me think of of how Jack was already doing a "bad guy laugh" with me before he could talk.
Nana
I love how excited he is about everything. He is so happy & smiley. How can you resist that face & curls. He sounds like someone else I know who would look at me with big blue eyes, curly hair, rosy cheeks that would look up at me and say I love you mom, especially if she might get in trouble.

We Made It!

Aug 6, 2008
At church we have been counting down the days to nursery since Macey first learned to scream. LIke many parents with one year olds, we spend the majority of our church time in the hall and chasing Macey around. But, we are happy to announce we now get to hand Macey over to the lovely and trustworthy nursery leaders for almost 2 of the 3 hours we spend in church.

She loved her first day of nursery, I don't know why any kid wouldn't. She got to play with her friends and eat snacks instead of being stuck in boring classes with us. The only down side is we don't have an excuse to skip Sunday School anymore.

Now I guess I have to go to the 3rd hour of church again since Macey is not there to distract me.
Jeanine
Hooray! We are counting down the days until James goes! So glad that Macey loved it!
