16 months!

Well, our Miss Macie is 16 months old (on the 7th) and it's time to update about how she's growing!
Macie, at 16 months you:
Love Brushing your teeth! (and momma loves that Dadda does this with you most nights after you drink your milk)
Say Momma, Dadda, touch, moon, and a whole bunch of other words.  Dee Dee Dow is an expression you use all.the.time.  You're daddy and I don't know what it means, but we think it's awful cute.

You finally have enough hair (and momma has enough skills) for pigtails.  You don't always leave them in, but they are super cute!  You haven't had a haircut, but I'm contemplating having it cut just to even some parts out.  We'll have to see about that.
Love reading Goodnight moon (at all times of the day).  You love to say "hush" with the old lady who was whispering hush. 

You have watched a baby genious DVD that has songs on it, and you will be in the middle of the grocery store or ta.rget and start doing the tune of 'the whe.els on the bus'.  I really hope you love music as much as your momma.  And especially that you love Praising Jesus as much as your parents.

Naps are hard.  You take one good nap, and usually get really, really cranky around 5 pm.  Just late enough that we don't want you to take a nap, but just early enough that 3 hours to bedtime is really rough.  Last night you gave daddy a run for his money while momma was at a church meeting.  We're hoping in the next few months (weeks, days maybe!) to get the one nap to 3 hours or so, so that you'll just be content with one nap.  It's not like one day they need two naps and the next day it's one.  It's been about 3 months of transition so far.  Boo.

Also, discipline is getting more complicated.  We haven't spanked you, but you don't seem to mind the 'clap. growl' (dr. karp) or timeout.  You're just pretty go with the flow when you are in trouble.  Sounds like trouble for mama!

You got sick almost a month and a half ago.  It was scary, you actually had a fever that got up to 105!  The after hours care was less concerned with your temperature because you were still behaving okay.  But geez, don't scare us like that again!  It turned out to just be something viral that only lasted about 48 hours (and your temp wasn't that high the whole time), but it was awful.  No more sickness!

You just cut your 15th tooth.  Just missing one incisor and your back four molars.  Pretty good I'd say.

You are a GOOD eater.  You still eat veggies without complaint.  The only trick is to give you the food in order.  Veggies first, main course, then fruit.  You would eat fruit all the live long day if we let you.  Not that it's bad, just that we want you to get all the nourishment you need!

You help daddy make breakfast. 
Generally Macie, you are one of the sweetest kids I've ever met.  You aren't perfect, but you sure are fun.  If your little sibling is as fun as you, we're going to have a good time in the future!
