Kate - 18 Months!

Wow- Kate is 18 months today.  I'll spare you the whole "I-can't-believe-how-fast-she's-growing" spill, although I still feel like she should be a teeny-tiny baby. Instead, she is an energetic, rambunctious, crazy, talkative little girl.  With that being said, here is what Kate is up to at 18 months!

Kate can identify the following animals and tell you what sound they make... 
  • Sheep
  • Cow
  • Horse
  • Owl
  • Bird
  • Bee
  • Pig
  • Chicken
  • Duck
  • Dog
  • Cat
  • Frog 
  • Monkey
  • Elephant
  • Snake
  • Fish (no sound on this one!)


She can also point and name the following body parts...
  • Nose
  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Cheeks
  • Tongue
  • Teeth
  • Mouth
  • Hair
  • Head
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Feet
  • Fingers
  • Toes
  • Belly/Belly Button
  • Elbow
  • Knee
  • Back
  • Neck

She still LOVES music and likes to dance.  She recently learned how to do the splits, and thinks it is so funny. 

She likes to "sing", which basically means you sing while she does the motions to some song.  Her favorites right now are the Itsy Bitsy Spider, This Little Light of Mine, Jesus Loves Me and The Wise Man Build His House Upon a Rock. 

She runs everywhere... there's no such thing as walking!

She wears a Size 5 diaper, Size 24 months (or 2T) clothing, and a Size 6ish shoe in Stride-Rite sizing. 

She has definitely become a much more picky eater, and doesn't eat nearly as much food as she used to.   She will devour dinner one night, and then turn her nose up at leftovers the next night.  

She likes to face-time with Papa Rick and Gigi and can say both of their names. She's still working on Aunt Kristi, but she's getting there!  She can also say Nana, Papa, Ken and Angela, as well as most of her cousin's names.

We've recently started the whole potty training deal and she has done GREAT.  I know it's probably too early for it, but she showed an interest and she does actually do what she is supposed to at night. We'll see how this goes. 

She will repeat just about anything you say, good or bad.

I posted a few "Kate-isms" not that long ago, but here are a couple of other cute things that she has been doing lately...
  •  When we pull up to a stop sign or light and come to a complete stop, Kate starts yelling "GO GO GO!".  Guess she has her Daddy's patience. 
  • I have been teaching her to respond to me with "yes ma'am" and "no, ma'am". which she has gotten very good at.... except she obviously hasn't learned "sir" yet.  So Kevin will say "Kate, do you want to go in the living room?" and she will respond emphatically "No, ma'am!".
  • In addition to saying "here you go" (hee-go), she has also learned to say "hang on" (hay-ohh).  Guess I use that phrase with her a bit too much too!
  • When Kevin gets her up in the morning, she points over to her bow board and says "bow, peas." That's my girl! :) 
  • We have always said the blessing with her before she eats, but she is really getting the hang of it. If we sit down at the table and I ask her what we have to do first, she will bow her head, fold her hands and pretend to close her eyes.  At the very end she will say "Amen" and then start eating.  Lately, however, she has started bowing her head, folding her hands, and saying "God" between every single bite.  So funny! I am just thankful that she likes to pray.
