19 Months

Weight: 25.9 pounds

Length: 31 inches 

Favorite activity: coloring, reading books, playing with her mini play kitchen

Favorite food: berries, milk, cheese sticks, pancakes

Favorite spot: sitting on the couch

Cutest moment: Giving smacking kisses to everyone!

Important milestones: Separation anxiety. It doesn't last long and it's only with me...but it's no fun.

Teeth: 12

Words: 17 - dada, mama, woof, yes, dis (this), kack (quack), hi, thank you, uh oh, bye, wa (water), buh (book), pees (please), goat, puppy, ah duh (all done), no

Signs: 11 (more, all done, dog, please, berry, cheese, grape, water, milk, help, thank you)

How Mom's Feeling: Good. A little relieved as for a large part of the month, I thought I was pregnant (I'm not. And no we aren't trying. We aren't even thinking about trying.) But it did put in sharp relief that A) I would like to have another, and B) I really don't want another right now. Right now, I'm feeling confident about our parenting, Lorelei is doing really well and I just want to be present with her right now.

I've been working hard on being present with her, spending less time behind the camera, and more time enjoying being with her in the moment. She is funny and independent and she certainly knows her own mind!

Pencil Frame

I love this song. It just speaks to me, especially the last four verses:

Pics of Our Week(s)

Yet again, it's been more than a week since our last post, but well, life happened. I went back to work, so there's that. It's only from 2-6, but it does cut into our fun time. And then there was that whole thing where my computer hiccuped and I lost about a month and a half worth of pictures (back up, people!) Thank god for Facebook and this blog!

Tea party! (with milk and scones!)

Morning at the SF Zoo!

Hanging at Diddalidoo
Someone get this girl a kitchen (just not her mama's!)

Loved how she checked each item before putting them in the basket!
"Snacktime" with buddy Nicholas!
Look at this cutie pie!

Mama's new office/craft area

And now to back up a whole lotta pictures on Shutterfly!
