You are becoming quite the little lady Livy Girl! You have such a great personality and are hilarious!!! You clearly get that from your awesome mama!! I'm just saying! You make us all laugh on a daily basis and I'm so very grateful for that!
You love being outside and get so excited. You go to the closet and get whatever shoes you can find, whether they are yours or mine or dad's because you want out that door! You love running around with your sister and all the neighbor kids. You are still a little too little to keep up but you try your very best and it's damn cute! You still put just about anything and everything into your mouth so I would appreciate it if you would stop eating fricken rocks and dirt and shit! It's icky!
You are our little peanut! At your 15 month check up you only gained 10 ounces from your 1 year and now weigh a whole whopping 19 pounds 13 ounces which puts you in the 25th percentile for you weight! Nothing to be concerned about by any means just means we have a petite little gal. You take after your Antie Becky in that sense! Which is good cuz Mama is not one that you would call petite!
You used to be our good eater but lately you've gotten picky! You still love all your fruits but everything else kinda gets pushed away. I'm sure it's the teeth you are getting and just a faze we are going thru. Speaking of teeth....you now have 4 full on teeth! Better late than never but now I have a feeling that they are all going to come at once!
The witching hour still exists at the Westbrock house...usually around 7:30 or so. You and your sister go bat shit crazy! It's hilarious and dad and I just sit back and watch! Sometimes it's still hard to believe that the two of you are all ours! God gave your dad and I two wonderfully beautiful, smart, funny and crazy girls and I love watching you grow as sisters!
Mees is still totally your most favorite person! You want to do everything she does. Most of the time she doesn't mind although you are the little sister and can be a little too much all up in her biz! I think it's funny....Mia not so much!
You are starting to say a few more words. I've been a little concerned because I feel like at this age Mia was saying more but your Doctor reassured me that what you are doing is completely normal and right on point. Apparently the second child is sometimes a little slower with words because you have everyone talking for you! You definitely understand what we are saying so that's good! Words right now are "mama", "dada", "baba", "bye-bye", "hi", "eewww" and then lots and lots of wonderfully funny babbles!
You still do the 2 naps a day thing but it might be time soon to go down to one long afternoon nap. Your morning nap is becoming shorter and shorter. I don't know that I'm ready to give up the 2 naps yet but a nice 3 hour afternoon nap might be what we both need! You are awesome about going to bed at night and we have zero problems with that. Bed time is usually about 8:30 and wake up time is usually around 7.
You've also started this whole hitting thing. Not hitting others but just straight up hitting yourself?! What the hell kid?! I remember when your sister would just bang her head into the floor or the wall. Not really sure why you all like to inflict pain upon yourself but whatever I guess! It's weird and funny all at the same time.
I feel like our months are going by much faster all of a sudden and they seem to be running together. So much stuff happening I need to get better at documenting your sweet happy little existence! You and that beautiful smile of yours light up our hearts! You are truly one of a kind and each day I love you more than I ever thought was possible! Love you little loves!
