Wow! Where does the time go? I cannot believe Carly is 18 months old! She is growing up and no longer acts like a baby. She is such a big girl. She walks, talks, dances, and throws a real good fit! I love her more than I ever dreamt possible.
He had to go to the special needs nursery for a few days so I did not get to meet him right away. Here is a picture of our first meeting. I was not really sure what to do when I saw him for the first time so I just looked at him and smiled.
But then Jadan got to come home and I went to his house to see him. This time I decided I would touch him- so I grabbed his head. I think Jadan and I are going to be great friends. I am going to teach him all of my tricks and we're going to get in to lots of TROUBLE one day!
Carly is now eating level two foods. She LOVES to eat! If you are eating near her she opens her mouth and grunts. She also opens her mouth for a drink :)
She is doing the army crawl! She scoots around pretty good. She gets up on her knees and just when I think she is going to take off- she belly flops and scoots on her tummy.
She has discovered her toes! And wouldnt you know she puts them in her mouth :)
She LOVES to talk like her Mommy. If you are talking and not paying attention to her- she gets louder and louder until you acknowledge her.
She has made a few sounds that I think may be words. She says "da da da da" and then once I asked her if she wanted a bottle and she said "ba ba ba."
She throws all of her toys down and waits for someone to pick them up. If we don't- she cries until we do. Man she has us figured out!
She is teething still but no teeth.
She has taken a real interest in her brother Jackson- when he comes near her she gets really excited and kicks and squeals. When I let her kiss him she laughs out loud. Poor Jackson is not so crazy about her.
Carly is very nosey. She will break her neck to see what is going on around her.
She is also very expressive. She makes the funniest faces with her eyebrows and several strangers have said this to me in public.
She has started to wave. Really it is more of a beauty queen wave with her arm straight out, but it is a wave!
Carly now does this thing where she hides her face when people talk to her. She tries to act shy but she really is not.
I hate to brag but she really is such a good baby. She hardly ever cries unless she is hungry or sleepy. I take her lots of places and people will comment on how good she is. It almost makes me afraid to ever have another baby!
Carly went to her six month checkup a little late. She went at seven months :(
The last time it snowed I was bedridden with my back so I did not get to take Carly out and take her picture. So this week I was determined to get some photos of her in the snow. She was not too sure about it at first, but once she stuck her fingers in it she started to giggle and smile. Plus my sister's dog kept running around her so she was pretty over stimulated!
Right after she stuck her hand down in the snow
I made her a snowball but she would not hold on to it!
