Attitude. That is the only word to describe my girl lately. It is her way or the highway and Patience is not a virtue of hers. She wants to do things herself and when she can't she gets super frustrated. I bought this shirt last year when she was just a little baby with images of a punky photo session dancing in my head. I thought it would be perfect for her 18 month pictures.
The pictures turned out so good even though she wasn't a very willing participant. My girls is growing so much lately and it's like I'm being introduced to a different person as the months go by. I love you baby girl!
Now I need to figure out how to use my photoshop to add some cool effects to this pictures.
We had a great day together. I took Alayah downtown to take some pictures in her red, white, and blue. She wasn't very cooperative but I got some cute ones. We went to our local football game and then found a spot to watch the fireworks. She wasn't very awake when they finally started, but she wasn't scared of them which was good.
I thought I'd let the kids finger paint today. They were not too sure about it. They ended up decorating themselves more than the paper. Oh well, it was only interesting to them for about 5 minutes and then it was time to go inside and take a bath
You are officially 18 months old today! I feel like this milestone is like your 6 months milestone. Your have way between two important ages. You are no longer a baby to me. You seem so grown. I do know that the last 18 months have been the greatest of my life and I am so excited to see what happens in the future. I see manicures, movies, and wonderful conversations. I can't wait. I love you with all my heart. Alayah 18 months 7/3/2009 Alayah 6 months 7/3/2008
not feelin so good on her last day of being 17months
Your language skills have exploded this month. You say so much now like "lyjaah"-Elyjaah "I no no"- I don't know "Oh no no"- Oh no You also say Nana, Bye, Yes, No, Mommy, Daddy, Papa, owie, mine, and Hi..... You love dancing and any time music comes on you are the first to get jiggy with it. You have started wearing pull ups at daycare and using the potty with the bigger kids. I am so proud of you baby girl. You are still very independent and insist on doing things yourself. You are starting to try to put your clothes on by yourself and you can almost get your sandals on. You are really starting to enjoy dancing and learning moves. It is so cute. Mommy is kind of sad that you are going to be 18 months old tomorrow and you will officially be closer to two then one. I miss my baby, but I am excited to see what the future holds and I love getting glimpses into who you may become. I love you baby girl!
