Olivia: 17-18 months

Our Olivia is now 18 months old. She went for her checkup last week and is currently weighing in at 23 pounds and is about 31 inches tall. She's gained about 3 inches and grown about 3 pounds in the past 3 months. She's been busy!

She's a good little eater. She enjoys cheese the most of all still but also loves strawberries, spaghetti, corn, beans, chicken, and mama's chili. And we have been nursing for 18 months and going strong! She isn't a fan of any other milk. We nurse 2-3 times a day with no immediate plans for stopping until we are both ready. I'm so proud of our nursing relationship! 

She's talking so much now! She has started to put two or three words together to say phrases like thank you, bless you, and here you go. She has a long list of words that she can say now including: mommy, dada, Josh, JuJu, nana, paw paw, maw maw, eat, bubble, go, no, mine, yes, please, dog, ki ki (for cat), cheese, that, cow, boo boo, hey, bye bye, okay, uh oh, yay, nope, whoa, this, baby and did I mention that she can say no? That might be one of her favorites right now. She's eating good, talking great, and keeping us on our toes!

Julianna and Olivia interact so much now. They play together, laugh together, and argue... already! It's so fun to watch their interactions and how they've changed in the past 18 months. It's such a joy to be their mother!
