182ish Days of Annabelle

Now, it's Annabelle's turn.
This little girl is wise beyond her years because of all the surprises she's given us--- including her! She's such a sweet girl and we are all so smitten with her--- and she knows it!
I told you, she knows it (I LOVE how her tongue sticks out)! Her breakdown:

Weight: 15 lbs 14 oz--50%--- she probably passed 16 this last week
Height: 26 1/2 inches--90%--- I guess we have tall kids
Head Circ.: 16.5 inches--50%
Hair: light brownish red
Eyes: dark brown gray--- they haven't really decided yet
none, yet, but she's pre-teething---which makes everything more fun 'round these parts
Likes: Jared, Daddy, Jared, Mommy, Jared, Mickey Mouse, Jared, smiles, Jared, Aunt Meggie... did I mention she likes Jared?
Dislikes: being walked away from, running out of food, being in her car seat for too long
Favorite Food: Milk. Along those lines, she now gets a daily dose of fruits and veggies. She's got sweet potatoes (as seen in the side picture), oatmeal, bananas, apples, and pears in her playbook. Coming up next is squash!
Favorite Toys: Jared, Minnie Mouse rattle, Baby Jungle Gym, and Jared's cars
Favorite Books: none---yet---she loves when I read to Jared and look down at her
Favorite Things to Watch: Jared---- I sense a theme...
Signs: none, yet, but we're signing 'milk and hungry' to her, so we'll see...
Words: none--yet---but she's recently found her voice. She likes to test her volume and babbles. She now has conversations with us, ooo's and ah's, I'll get video soon.
Other New Tricks: I would venture to say, she's pro-sitter now. If she does get overly excited, then down she'll go, but she's usually good for a few minutes.
What's next: Crawling, more new foods, teeth, moving up into her brother's car seat, her first plane ride at the end of June... hopefully, her laid-back personality continues when we attempt the new adventure of traveling with TWO kids!
How she drives us crazy:
She's really laid-back. I know, not usually a complaint, BUT if she's in pain or getting too loved by her brother, I'm always the last to know because she doesn't vocalize; although that has changed a little with the finding of her voice... so I guess we'll see.
Why she's so awesome: She's such a happy girl. She's the perfect little cure to bad day blues; even if she's having a bad day. She loves to smile and giggle. She's inquisitive and too smart for her own good. We absolutely adore her and wouldn't have it any other way!
