18 Month Stats

Last weekend Calla hit 18 months already. This week we went in for shots and then in for her checkup. She weighs 19.3 lbs and that puts her in the 3rd percentile. She is 30 inches tall and that puts her in the 10th percentile. She is little, but I am not tall so they don't expect her to be huge at any point. Dr. thought she looked great in everything else!
She continues to be amazing! She now can tell you what sound an owl makes and also a snake. We read, and read, and read, and read Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you see?; Polar Bear, Polar Bear; Baby Bear, Baby Bear; and Panda Bear, Panda Bear! She loves these books and loves telling us what sound each animal makes!
She can say about 25-30 different words and understands many more then that. It is also fun for her to repeat things you ask her to say. Elmo is a favorite of hers now too! We really have not exposed her to many Sesame Street things, but at daycare they enjoy it and so now when she spots Elmo she yells out his name. We found an Elmo at Wal-Mart and bought it so she has carried him around since we got him home!
We are just hanging out as a family this Holiday weekend. We had a garage sale at church today and did well there. Tomorrow we have a picnic in the evening and are hoping to find some water to play in before that! On Monday I think we are going to GI to go shopping and play some disc golf. Tuesday my new class starts and I am excited to see what this year brings in the life of 3, 4, and 5 year olds!
We hope that you continue to be well. If you have a minute visit Gavin's site and leave some encouraging words for my friend Gina. She is really missing her Mother and could use some encouragement in her day.
Enjoy the new pics!
