Yesterday my sweet girl turned 17 months. I can't even list all the words she's saying anymore- she's saying two word sentences all the time and her word count is in the 100s. My genius child.
We have to lay our dining room chairs down on their side or stack them because anytime they are up she climbs on the table. She is always climbing. She'll use a turned over laundry basket, kids chair, one of the vintage suitcases in her bedroom- anything to get up on what she wants. This girl is busy, active, and into evvvvverything. She's definitely a healthy one!
Along with purses she is loving baby dolls and after a dinner with friends who have little girls we're officially on the hunt for a doll stroller from a yard sale. She loved pushing the doll (and anything else) around in the toy stroller. I think she's definitely a mix of rough and tumble and sweet girly girl and, so far, you can tell by her personality that she's the baby princess in a family with three older brothers. I'm so interested to see if this stays true through the years.
Today we skipped church and headed downtown for a little park time and pizza lunch. We had fun playing, running into one of my good friends from jr high/high school, and spending the morning together. While we were at lunch a man came up to and told us what a nice family we have and how well-behaved our kids are. He said that him and his wife raised three boys and he loved seeing our family. I know I think nice things a lot, but I usually don't say them. I so appreciate when people come up and compliment our family and kids. So sweet!
(Three pirates and Count Dracula came along.)
