18 Months!

I skipped the 15 month post but here is the 18 month update! Sweet little Liney is not actually little!  I have thought, all this time, that she was on the smaller side.  Turns out, she is in the 95th percentile for height and 50th for weight.  My little girl isn't so little!  :(  Here are some facts and stats on my favorite 1 year old!

-34 inches tall, 24 pounds
-Has so many words!  Way more than SJ at this age.  I assume that's normal!
-Throws fits with the best of them!  When she is about to throw one, she slowly lays down on the floor then turns on the screaming and water works.  It's quite funny but also needs to soon have consequences.  
-She is content to play alone but loves to be anywhere SJ is.  She adores her big sister!
-I think she really likes being the center of attention.  She will dance and sing on command and is so proud to entertain.
-Quite the monkey!  She loves to climb.  The doctor said she is her own biggest threat.  
-Sleeps about 12 hours at night and takes about a 2 hour nap.
-Her best friend is her little sock monkey that she sleeps with.  Thanks to Sarah Crawford for that first birthday gift.  It's so random that it became her "lovie" but she sure won't go far without it!
-Seems to love mommy and daddy equally, no favorite yet. 
-Still sucks her index and middle finger to soothe herself.  I know I should stop her but I want her to stay my baby and it's sweet, ha!  Probably not a good enough excuse!
-Always knows when a babysitter arrives, must be that toddler intuition.
-Her nickname from SJ is "Liney Cat".  I love it!
 I had just asked her to give me her fingers...see that little smile underneath?! 
 Here she's saying "cheeeese!"
