Anne Lowry {almost} 16 months

The one word I would use to describe Anne Lowry right now is PRECIOUS.
Seriously, everything about her......her toes, fingers, expressions, smile, the way she loves on her baby dolls but also loves cars/trains, her laugh, the way she dances and will play peek-a-boo, finding her sitting in her room reading a book by herself.  I could go on and on but I'm sure you get the drift.  I'm pretty much obsessed with her :-)  I think 15 months wins as my favorite age far (I loved looking back at Hampton when he was 15 months) is shortly after this when their baby pudge starts to disappear and they start to need some discipline in their life.

{pictures from 14 mths by Miki McCurdy}

--size 5 diaper

--24 mth and 2T clothes (a few 18 mth still fit)

--size 5 shoe

--12 teeth with the two lower canines just breaking through

--Favorite foods:  blueberries, mandarin oranges, (basically any fruit), cereal, waffles,  chicken nuggets, yogurt, goldfish, all sweets.  Doesn't much care for vegetables but will usually try whatever you give her.
--Loves:  Her Momma and Daddy, Hampton, her "bun-bun," baby dolls, singing songs (faves: Old McDonald, If You're Happy and You Know it, Wheels on Bus), reading books, cars/trains, baths, shoes.

--Dislikes:  Hampton taking things from her, dogs, running errands (although she is getting much better, thank God).

--Words:  mama, dada, hot dog, nana, dog, pig, baby, juice, door, ta-ta for thanks, milk, wa-wa, shoe, no, bun-bun, I know there are others and she is good at repeating things you ask her too.  

She's never been a TV watcher...but lately she'll sit on the couch with Hampton for about 15 minutes and watch a show.  Her favorites Word World which they both call "dog," and Mickey Mouse.

--One nap around noon for 1.5-2.5 hrs.  Goes to bed around 730p-7a.  Although, for a while she was sleeping until 8 but now for the last 4 days she has been waking up before the sun 6ish...ugh!

LaLa, Lolli, Lollipop (btw, I love your nicknames...your dad will sometimes call you Anne and I only love that because he does it), 

2014 has definitely been your year so far.  For whatever reason, there are far less meltdowns and tantrums and a lot more smiles and sweetness from you.  Maybe because you can communicate so much better or maybe because you can hold your own with Hampton a lot better.....probably a combination :-)  I have also seen glimpses of an undercover cuddlebug in you :-)  Don't get me wrong you are still FULL of personality, feistiness, and love to tell people "NO!"  You are our beautiful, precious baby girl.  We love you more than you will ever know.
xoxo, Mama
