Growing Girl

If Jared is three that means our resident cutie girl, Annabelle is 18 months old! How did that happen?!? Gweg and I have commented that she is the same age Jared was when she was born... whoa. Here's her stats:


Weight: 25 lbs (5oth percentile)
Height: 33 1/4 inches (90th percentile)
Head Circ: 19 cm (90th percentile)
Hair: whispy strawberry blonde
Eyes: they changed to dark chocolate brown--- woo hoo, I did make her!
Teeth:
16--- just missing the two year molars
Shoe Size: 4 to 5--- she's got big feet like her Mama
Nicknames: Belle, Annabellie, Bellie, Little Mama, Little Girl, Baby-zilla, Sissy, turkey
Likes:
STILL:-Jared, Daddy, Pink Blankie, Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse, running around, Monkeys, Minnie Mouse, singing, dancing, splashing ADDED: climbing everywhere, talking, purses, shoes, princesses, swimming, and buckles
Dislikes: someone else buckling her in, going to bed, being restrained or being quiet, most veggies
Favorite Food: pb&j without crust, quesadillas, grilled cheese, raisins, chocolate, mac & cheese, yakisoba, gyozas, pasta, oatmeal, bananas, applesauce, crackers. She'll only eat breaded chicken and isn't too fond of veggies (I know, I know) ADDED: her tastes really haven't changed, like any girl she'll eat chocolate any time and hoovers japanese food. She also LOVES grapes and seems to like bananas less.
Favorite Toys: Princess Minnie, Mickey, Cuddle Monkey named Mo, and her baby Belle doll. She also loves to dumped EVERYTHING out in their play kitchen, much to Mommy's chagrin.
Favorite Books: same---Any of the Disney books, Star Wars ABC, Fifteen Animals (she calls is the 'ba bu,' bob book), scriptures
Favorite Things to Watch: SAME---Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Sesame Street, Dinosaur Train, any Disney/Pixar movie, Thomas & Friends
Words: She's super talkative now. She actually doesn't like to stop talking. She'll yell for us from her crib, yell for Jared and answer questions and statements (like tell us 'no' when we say it's time for bed). One of her favorite phrases is 'me do.' It's her answer to whenever we ask questions starting with, "who wants {insert something here}?" It's really cute and now it's a family joke because we all use it.
Other New Tricks: She's a full-fledged toddler now. Fits and everything. I'm shocked with how fast she is learning and growing. She knows some numbers, she can count from 6-12ish and she sings her own version of the alphabet. She started going to nursery and so far she just complains when we drop her off. She know when she goes pee and poop, so looks like another round of potty-training is in our future.
What's next: Disneyworld Vacation next week, start potty training before the end of the year... maybe...
How she drives us crazy: Still stubborn and now throws fits. As she has started throwing fits, she discovered her 'high-pitch' scream. I think she may have frightened a few neighborhood dogs the first time it happened. She's also at the stage where she'll do anything to get attention---good or bad--- so hitting Jared is not off limits. Which means she now knows what Time Out is.
Why she's so awesome: She's a girl who knows what she wants. Her relationship with Jared is really cute right now because they are starting to have conversations with one another--- granted, they usually end with Jared telling her to do something and her saying no, but it's a conversation nonetheless. She'll still do anything for him, which is too cute. She's a little more reserved than Jared which is a blessing because things can get loud in a mostly tiled house. We love the fun she brings into our lives and adore watching her grow and learn. Next thing we know, she's going to turn around and be 2! She's definitely not a baby anymore.
