O is now, as of yesterday, officially 19 months old. It's crazy to me to think that she is closer to 2 than to 1. Scary!
She had her 18 month appointment back in the middle of December and she is doing really well. She is 33 1/4 inches tall (88th percentile) and is 28 lbs. 5.5 oz (92nd percentile) so she is finally growing in to her weight and is leveling off on the charts.
She is still a super crazy person. She loves the outdoors and the Christmas lights that were up all over our neighborhood are her new favorite thing. At least she is accepting the fact that all the decorations are coming (or have already come) down. She does know how to open doors and we will hear her going in to the kitchen, open the pantry and come out with one of her food items. Maybe we should move them to a higher shelf! This is where we end up when that happens. At least she knows she has to sit down to eat.
One of her favorite things to do is play hide and seek with us by putting a blanket or lovie or something over her head. Of course, J and I oblige and act like we don't know where she is. The game started out that way but turned into Livighost and Daddyghost trying to scare Mommy.
O's hair is pretty unruly and when she sleeps she sleeps hard. The combination of those two traits result in some wonderful bedhead (although the pictures don't ever do it the justice it deserves).
And then finally, I just really like this picture. I love the mischievous hint of a smile that O has in it.
