18 Month Stats

Harper turned 18 months on April 28th and had her well check the next day. She only had to have 1 shot this time. She cried REALLY hard but was all better after the nurse gave her a sucker.

Here are some things about my 18 month old:
  • 20.0 lbs (3rd percentile)
  • 31.5 inches long (50th percentile)
  • She started walking at 16 months but has figured out she can RUN!
  • LOVES Elmo's World and Curious Buddies
  • Says "mama," "dada," "puppa" (puppy), "baby," "Bap" (Max), "bye-bye," "ready set gooooo" (you can only understand the "gooooo" part if you don't really know what she's saying), and tries to repeat almost anything we say.
  • Signs "more," "please," "all done", "dog", and "eat"
  • Anytime we start to walk out the door of the house to go outside, she says "bye-bye, puppy." It's pretty cute.
  • She's so smart and will usually follow through if you ask her to do something (get your shoes, get your juice, go night night, sit down, don't lick the know, normal things).
  • She sleeps really well during nap time and at night. She usually takes a 2-3 hour nap (sometimes 1 short morning nap and 1 long afternoon nap) and sleeps 7pm-7:30am (longer if I don't have to wake her up to get ready)
  • LOVES hot dogs, green beans, peas, carrots, yogurt, cheese, vienna sausages (sick!), rice, and bread
  • Loves "Pat-A-Cake," "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," "Old McDonald," and "The Itsy Bitsy Spider
  • Just this morning she woke up with a dry diaper so I sat her on the potty, and she went! She still doesn't really associate the bodily functions with the toilet, but it's a start!

She's so lovable and is a definitely a mommy's girl....until daddy is around. We love you so much Harper Reese!
