Lakyn at 18 Months

8 Aug

Puzzle Master

I’m kicking myself for not getting around to starting this blog earlier. Like way earlier. Like ‘when I was still pregnant with Lakyn’ earlier. Better late than never, right? I suppose that means I’m going to have to rely on the baby book and my own memory to remember the early facts and cute little things our sweet baby girl did.

But from now on, this here blog will help.

A little about Lakyn at 18 months:

  • You are starting to walk up and down the stairs, instead of crawling
  • You say SO many words (our current favorite: magnet, which you pronounce ‘maggot’), and actually speak really clearly.
  • You are a master at using a spoon and fork
  • You love doing your puzzles
  • You have a fascination with the moon and point it out everywhere you see it
  • Your favorite song is We Are the Dinosaurs by Laurie Berkner. You know when the song is over, and immediately ask for us to play it again. You pronounce it ‘Di-sores’.
  • You are trying so hard to put your shoes on by yourself
  • You can recognize a few letters of the alphabet.
  • You are just now fitting into size 4 shoes. You have tiny feet for your age.
  • You kiss the cross in your room ‘goodnight’ and wave ‘goodnight’ to the icon of your guardian angel before you go to sleep. It’s one of the sweetest things to watch.
  • You are aware of when you need a new diaper and you’re very interested in the potty.
  • You love every fruit under the sun, especially blueberries which you lovingly refer to as ‘boo-bees’. Yes, it’s true! Veggies are hit-and-miss. You like your carrots, and your peas, but only occasionally like green beans. You’re very picky about meats. You love the homemade chicken nuggets Momma makes you, though.
  • You know what m-i-l-k spells.
  • You have 12 teeth.
  • Your two favorite toons to watch are Yo Gabba Gabba and Olivia. ‘Gabba’ and O-via’
  • Your kisses are the best.
  • You say please and thank you regularly.
  • You love coloring with your ‘kee-ons’ and markers.
  • You love wearing Momma’s belts and headbands and try to walk around in Momma and Daddy’s shoes.
  • You love reading books. Favorites are ‘Twinkle’, a collection of nursery rhymes and ‘Boom Boom’ which is one of Momma’s favorite children’s books, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.
  • You answer “umm” first when we ask you a question.
  • You pretend to cook while Mommy is doing so in the kitchen.

¬†You’re such a sweet little girl, Lakyn and you’re growing up so quickly. You’re closer to the age of two than you are to the age of one now! Daddy and I are so blessed to be your parents and can’t wait to see what each new day holds for you. We love you so much!

She said she was making a cake. That’s Momma’s kind of cake!

    I’m not gonna lie, I did a major happy dance and screamed a bit when I heard you were starting a blog. I think you’re totally creative and aside from missing the heck out of you guys and this being a good way for me to stalk your life (haha! just kidding…kind of) I think you are a really great blogger. Anyway, I’m amazed at how fast little girl is growing up! She’s adorable!
