Hannah turned 18 months is April. What? It’s hard not thinking of her as a baby although she hasn’t looked like one for quite awhile now. She routinely gets mistaken for a year older than she actually is. She measures in the 95th percentile for height and 70th for weight. She says bubu (brother), dada, mama, uh-oh, bye bye, hi, here kitty kitty and does lots of animal noises.
The chick is absolutely crazy. She is always, always on the move. She is also very ornery with quite a temper and can throw a fit with the best of them when she doesn’t get her way. That’s what happened here.
She has a funny little sense of humor and loves to make people laugh and when her minions make her laugh. She loves playing with balls, reading books and anything that has to do with Noah.
She doesn’t go anywhere without her blanket and a stuffed animal. Minnie Mouse (which is almost as big as her) is the current favorite. She is also a lover of accessories. Scarfs, jewels, hats, any kind of pretty thing is an absolute must. Except for hair bows. She is not down with things in her hair. Tutu skirts are also a must.
She’s also addicted to her “buppy” (pacifier) and we are having a heck of a time getting rid of it. We’ve gotten to just having it at nap and bedtime but she just loves it so much. So, I’m taking any tips from those experienced with taking a pacifier away. Noah didn’t use one so we’ve never done this before.
She doesn’t like getting dirty and really dislikes the grass. She stayed on the little brick paths at the park even though there were several times she was desperate to get to something in the grass. Silly girl.
Hannah has made our lives crazier, messier and infinitely happier. I can’t wait to see what the next 18 months have in store for us!
