18 months

Things we are really into: (in alphabetical order)

1. Babies- all babies. And, she is really rough with them. This poor baby would be in some serious trouble if she were alive. Broken legs, arms, concussions, brain damage, poked out eyes, but she would not be starving. Leah does feed her quite a bit.

a video I call: leah and the baby

2. The beach: the sand, the surf, and the shells. Finally, I mean.. we are FINALLY out of the shell and sand eating phase (high five!)

we went to see Kimberly and baby Madison at the beach!

3. Birds (really into those too): Lee likes to point at them, yell directions at them, and generally just thinks they are interesting. When they fly away, that is magical! Her little chubby hands go up into that perfect, palms up, fingers spread apart, inquisitive look, like.. where are they going? I just love it!

4. Climbing: we have a mini monkey on our hands. Up trees, slides, tables, chairs, pretty much anything that will support her weight, she climbs on.

5. ELMO- all in caps. Elmo is the MAN right now. Elmo shirts, diapers, toys, shopping carts, she says his name, as well as Ernie and Coo-coo (cookie monster) but nobody, no way, can beat Elmo! We watch him on sesame street online and she loves this one song about elmo with adam sandler... check it out!

6. Reading: she loves to read! Leah won't actually sit through a whole book at this moment, but she likes the idea of a book, pictures are cool, words seem interesting....we're working on it.

Loving life with my 18 month old! In fact, I always promised that I would not say Leah's age in months, so starting now, she is a year and a half.

love that leah girl
