18 months!

*this post is a week and a half late...*

Macie, You're so.much.fun.!  Seriously, I couldn't be more excited about being your momma. 
Stats:  At your 18 month check up you were 34 inches tall (96th%).  Only one more inch before you can go on the Gadget Roller Coaster in Toon Town!  Maybe after mamma has your baby sister we can go together.  By then you'll surely be taller than 35 inches!  You were 28.8 Lbs.  (92%). and your head was 86% (I don't remember the measurements).  The doctor said you are the perfect height for your weight and your progress is exactly where it should be.  You probably say around 15-20 words.  Some of your favorites are:
Football!  You went to 9 of 10 of Daddy's games this year.  While they did well, they didn't make it to playoffs, but at least now his reward is more Macie time!  You also met our mascot (we're Brahamas - Bulls to you and me) and I got the CUTEST picture.  Check you out.  You mastered the high five (just barely.)



You are running everywhere, that's nothing new.  You are trying to jump (almost!) and you L.O.V.E to dance.  You move your hands in the air and down again and twirling...you love to twirl. 
You've got the music in you.  You'll sit by momma at the piano and while mommy plays you help her and play a whole bunch too.  After about 15 minutes though you've had it and you want mommy to stop playing and play with you (which I'm only too happy to do).

You are an outdoorsy baby too! (when do I have to stop saying baby? You look like such a little girl!)  You enjoy playing outside and even now that it's cooler (like 60's ... ha!) you still love to go out with your cute jacket on.

We went to the pumpkin patch before halloween.  We even took some pictures with your cousin Logan.
I don't know that he was interested, but it sure was cute.
Other words you say: Up (for both up and down), more, please, No (with a very cute tone.  I don't know how long it will be cute for though), go,go,go (when watching football), and many others.

You are really starting to enjoy books!  Just recently you found the 'No David!' books.  I don't know if your daddy loves them, but you sure do.  I think it's because it's a word you can say.  You enjoy being read to every night before we pray.  In your children's Bible you flip right to the back and just look at Jesus and the little children.  I hope you grow up to love Jesus.  More than anything.

You eat just about anything, but of course from day to day your tastes change and something you liked yesterday you don't like today...but we're dealing with it.  I think Nana would make you just about anything you wanted, but Mommy and Daddy don't want you to be picky, so we just tough it out.

Speaking of toughing it out, you've had multiple time-outs.  You are so fun, and with that comes a strong personality (where did you get that from!?).  You love to stand up on your chair while staring us in the eyes, daring us to do anything.  We give you a warning and if you do it again, you get the naughty stool.  It's too early to tell if it's working, but since you generally cry, we figure it's probably doing something.

Macie, You're a sweetheart, and we love you so much.  I hope you keep growing just as you are and let us love you for a long, long time!

Cute, cute, cute!!!

Addison loves the Sarah Boynton book, Moo Moo, Baa Baa, Lalala because it has a line that goes, "No, No, that isn't right".

And any book with pictures of real life stuff they recognize, like a sippy cup or a dog. :)
