Maggie {18 Months + 1 Week}

And just like that, my baby is one and a half years old! This little girls loves to play with her baby dolls, and spends hours pushing them around in their toy stroller. Maggie loves to climb & dance, but her very favorite thing to do is play outside in our backyard exploring and getting real dirty. Some of her new vocabulary words include pretty, juice, and baby. She can point to her nose, mouth, eyes, and ears, and loves to show you where your facial features are, too. Maggie weighed 24.5 pounds and measured 33 inches tall at her recent doctor appointment.

Maggie {16 Months + 2 weeks}

Well, better late than never, here is Mag’s 16 month post.

Maggie is getting to be such a big girl. She loves music! Playing her piano, dancing or clapping along to music are amongst her favorite activities. She loves books, climbing, swimming, and Sesame Street. Her vocabulary is growing every day, and she gives kisses to everyone, including our pets. It is bitter sweet to see my baby turn in to such an active little girl. I am so thankful to have a happy & healthy little lady, I just wish I could slow down time a bit.

Maggie {15 Months Old}

The Magster is 15 months old tomorrow. Wow! She is such a big girl now. Maggie is learning to eat with utensils, likes to brush her own hair & teeth (she has 9 now) and has learned several new words. Some of her most used new words are up, ball, here, and STOP. She will also shake her head no to me when she is finished eating and can’t eat one more bite. So. much. fun.

Maggie {14 Months Old}

Oh, sweet Maggie! Today she is 14 months old. She is full of mischief and sweetness. Things are much busier in our house now that she is a toddler, but we wouldn’t have any other way. Maggie’s new skills include climbing, onto the coffee table, the couch, and the rocking chair in her room. She has also started sorting, and enjoys pulling toys out of a container, and putting them back in. It is fun to watch her explore her surroundings, and play with her big sister.

Today, Maggie is 13 months old. I didn’t take many photos this week, because she has been very sick with a high fever & ear infection. Good times. I am happy to report that thanks to the antibiotics, she is finally feeling better today. She is still a bucket of grump, though. 
A few new things to report; she has cut one of her top teeth, gives hugs to everyone (including our pets), and is trying so very hard to speak to us.
I had forgotten about those months of frustration toddlers have when they’re learning to communicate with you. Might be time to teach Maggie some sign language.
