17 months of pure energy, sass, smiles and personality.
*Skye’s jealousy is REAL. Anytime we are snuggling with one of the other kids (or holding somebody else’s kid) she gets over to us so so fast so she can be included… and sometimes she will push the other people away too because she wants all of the attention.
*This is Skye trying to hide from Andrew. If she can’t see us then we surely can’t see her.
*This girl is FEARLESS. She will jump off the couch if I let her.
*She loves to help get herself dressed now. She loves putting her feet up for her shoes and she is very interested in the process.
*Her signature hairstyle these days… and this was mine as a little girl too which is why my family called me ‘palm tree head’ for a good chunk of my life.
*Andrew is determined to learn how to do the girl’s hair and it makes me so happy to see this:
*The second one of us is eating something in the kitchen, Skye drops her toys and binky and crawls quickly over to get a sample.
*She wants whatever we are having.
*Mini fits/tantrums have begun. They are so ridiculous sometimes that it is really hard to not laugh at what is happening but I’m sure trying. Also, when we tell her no or to stop doing something she will start to wave and grin as big as she can in hopes that we will forget what we were telling her to stop doing.
*She thinks she is quite the big deal when she gets to hang out in her car seat without the seat belt when the car is parked.
*Heaven forbid that Brooke watches a show when Skye wants her to play with her instead. She does whatever she can to get Brooke’s attention.
PS if we put her to bed in pajamas that have a top and bottom like the ones below then she will take her shirt off in the morning before we get her.
*Brooke and Knox’s favorite cheerleader at cross-country!
*Brooke has turned into a little mini-mom. She just starts helping with Skye without us saying anything and starts crying instantly anytime Skye gets hurt. I see them being like my sis and me (almost the same amount of age gap even).
*She wants to walk EVERYWHERE. She has gotten pretty fast the last few weeks too.
*If my mom is near, Skye ONLY wants to be with her.
*Why use fries to transport ranch into your mouth when you could just use your fingers. Any food that has any dairy in it is her absolute favorite. She could live off of cheese alone and be happy.
*Skye is giving quite the dramatic kisses lately… not sure if she is trying to kiss me or eat me.
*The other night I wanted to rock with Skye for a few minutes and snuggle before putting her to sleep. I sat down and Skye immediately jumped off of my lap and walked over to her crib and started waving goodbye to me ha. I get it, sleep feels so good and we should all do more of it.
*Her current vocabulary includes: Baby, dada, mama, etta (for Beretta), gimme, NO NO NO and eese (for cheese).
*She wants to be outside as much as possible and I’m okay with that and we’ll soak that in until next winter.
Parents reading… tell me about any new milestones that you are experiencing?
