18 months old!

Dear Alice,
Happy Half Birthday!
1 1/2!

Disclaimer: Neither one of us were into taking pictures today.
Therefore, let the blurry-fest begin!
(you're growing!)

This biggest news from this past month is...
It's still pretty tiny, but it's getting bigger.
I'm sure more are on their way,
but for now, there's just one.

(being chased by daddy)

You enjoy:
Stuffed animals
Being outside
Reading books
Drinking from a "big girl" cup
Collecting wood chips (see below)

You do not enjoy:
Diaper changes

(typical evening scene- playing with "the fun one", jack photo bombing)

You're doing so many big kid things these days:
You want to eat catsup as a side dish, rather than a condiment.
You love staring at your reflection (see below)...fireplace, oven, sliding door, any of those will do.

You throw yourself onto the floor when upset.
You say "thank you" when given something.
You're becoming particular about what clothes you want to wear.
You walk into the MOPS nursery like you own the place.
You're slightly obsessed with shoes.
You carry bags on your shoulder, like Mama.
You love harassing Jack. You try to sit on him all the time.
You squeal with delight when you see your friends.

You are such an awesome little kid.

I love you so much it makes my heart hurt.

Love, Mama

P.S.- Who still needs bigger shirts?
(i'm sorry i chopped off your hand. i didn't mean to.)
