At 17 months

We've been a family for 6 months now...can't believe it has already been half of a year. Time is passing by at warp speed and she's growing like a weed!

The biggest change from this month to last is her vocabulary, she has finally learned new words. Plus, they aren't easy words, they are harder words that have two different syllables! Yay! She's saying baby and puppy. Also, we sing Old MacDonald had a Farm and she sings along with the E-I-E-I-O! It's so cute.

Ladybug is nodding her head yes and a lot more often than no. But, she still shakes no when she's done eating or when she knows she is doing something she isn't supposed to.

Earlier in the month she started giving her own kisses to us on the lips. Sure, we always get the kisses when we ask for them. It's lovely when she does it on her own. I also watched her playing one day and she leaned over and gave her Violet doll a kiss on the mouth. Awwwww.

She can unscrew things the Cheerios canister and Coco's eye makeup remover. That was almost a mess!

Ladybug is picking up small toys or a discarded makeup compact and holding them up to her ear. She will babble and say hi as if she is talking on the phone. Then she hands us the "phone" wanting us to talk too. Cute!

She has two new teeth that have popped through, both on the top, for a total of 6 teeth now.

Bug's wearing size 2-3 diapers and 12 month clothes. Her tiny size 2 foot is growing and we won't be able to squeeze into those 2's much longer.

Happy Birthday Ladybug!

She looks so pretty in her colorful dress. She really is growing each month so much. I look forward to these updates. It is hard to beieve it has been 6 months since she came home. But I still don't remember life without her. She is such a gift from God to our families. Love you Bug, Nanny
