17 Months

Today, Baby Sister is 17 months old!

She enjoyed the birthday donuts we had with Big Sister this weekend.

Boring Stats, etc:

Diaper - Size 4
Weight -  She weighs about 25 pounds.  She's thick, like her sister.

Clothes - She is mostly wearing 18 month clothes, although some are still too big. Yet, she can wear some 2T outfits that fit just fine.  It's strange.

Sleep - She still sleeps about the same.  She goes to bed usually around 7:30-7:45 every night and gets up anywhere from 6-7:30, depending on the day. She takes 1 good nap during the day at the sitter's for about 1-2 hours.

Teeth -  She has 4 on top, 4 on bottom and 4 molars, mostly all in now.  I think she is starting to get her 'eye' teeth but I can't really tell.  She's had some bad diapers lately so I'm thinking it's a combo of her 2nd flu shot and teething.

Activities - She is still super BUSY. She LOVES to dance and knows all the motions to 'The Wheels On The Bus' thanks to her sister making us listen to it exactly 2.5 million times.  A day.  (Can you tell I'm a bit sick of the Veggie Tales. Love them, just need a break from them.)  If she is fussy in the car, her sister hollers at me to turn on the music.  She loves dancing to Mandisa's 'Good Morning Song' as well.  And we listen to it LOUD.  Jammin' out!

He says all kinds of things these days.  I can't keep up with all the new 'words' she says.  She can get her point across!  If she wants you to take her somewhere, she will literally push your behind out of the chair and point to where she wants to go or what she wants you to get her.  She's smart! (Of course!)

She is sooooo loving. Her favorite cuddle time is right after she gets out of the tub before bedtime.  I soak it all up because she's not as loving to me the rest of the day, but she is to her sister and her Daddy.  She has started giving the BEST (tight) hugs too.  So sweet.

Eating - She loves to eat.  She doesn't eat a ton of food in one sitting but she will eat.  She loves oranges the most, I think.  She did steal her sister's hamburger the other night and ate probably half of it!

Christmas was fun but rough for us.  She was sick probably the entire 2 weeks of Christmas and New Year's.  I eventually took her to the Dr. between the 2 holidays.  She never ran ANY fever but apparently had RSV and a touch of pneumonia.  She got a shot and an antibiotic and some breathing treatments!  Oh what fun that way.  She is WAY better now.  When she was sick, should would not sleep, therefore Mama did not sleep.  We had a few nights of pure you know what and I thought I was going to have to sleep train her all over again.  She started feeling better and she got back to normal, in most all respects.

Honestly though, it was her first really serious illness and I'm thankful it took 16+ months for that to happen.  We've really been blessed with mostly healthy children the past year.

Now, if we could just get Daddy home from working so much.  We only get to see him for about 10 minutes a day and it's getting old.
