18 Months!

Adelaide is 18 months old today. 1.5!! It just seems crazy!

From this…


To this…


Adelaide. here is what you are up to at 18 months…

  • You weigh about 20 lbs. which is a good 5 lbs lighter than Aedan was at the same age. We have your check up on Thursday, so I will find out how tall you are then.
  • You wear mostly 12-18m cloths. I have started buying 18m stuff but it is a little big for you.
  • You are still taking two naps. I thought for sure you would drop down to one nap earlier than Aedan did, but it looks like you are holding onto it longer. You sleep for about 45 minutes in the morning and then for 2-2.5 hours in the afternoon. I have a feeling you will drop to one nap soon, which will be so nice for the summer!
  • You sleep from 7:30pm-7:30am every night.
  • You love your milk. We give you a cup about 4 times per day and I finally got you to start drinking it cold.
  • You are not a big eater., you never really have been. You usually eat a good breakfast and then either a decent lunch or dinner, but never both.
  • You love your “Daa-Dee”. You call for him as soon as we get home or as soon as you wake up. If you have the choice, you will always run to him if you are hurt or upset.
  • You love to play with your baby dolls. You push them in the stroller or shopping cart, you feed them baby bottles, and pretend to tickle them. You also like to build with blocks, play with cars, and irritate Aedan by attempting to destroy any Lego or block creations he has made.
  • You will try to climb just about anything. One of the parks in our neighborhood has some big kid ladders and every time we go, you attempt to climb them all. It shouldn’t surprise me since this is what you did at 11 months.


  • You are starting to talk a little more. You have been slower to use your words than Aedan, but I know you will catch up soon. Right now you have about 7-8 words and about 7-8 signs that you use a lot. Your favorite is thing to say is “ruf ruf” when we ask you what a dog says. You also say daddy, ball, car, baby, nuh nuh (for your blanket), shoes, hi, uh-oh and you sign more, all done, milk, bird, wash hands, please (usually in combo with more) and eat.
  • You love watching Baby Signing Time (which is where you have picked up most of your signs).
  • You sleep with your sheet protector over your face just like Aedan used to. So strange. I thought I was doing good this time since we have two identical sheet protectors that you like, but instead of having a backup, you prefer to carry around two. Sigh.
  • If Aedan has something or does something, you immediately want it or try to do it. It makes daddy and I laugh, but it makes Aedan pretty annoyed.
  • Aedan loves you though, he is always watching out for you when we go for walks. He “blocks” you from getting too far away or running in the street. He may or may not try to “hand cuff you for those offences as well. Ha! He also love to go in your room and talk to you in the morning or after nap time. He will tell me to wait outside and he will go in and stand at your crib and just talk about the most random things. You LOVE it. Every time I go in, you have the biggest smile on your face!

Adelaide, you are such a fun and happy toddler. We couldn’t imagine life without you! We love you so so much bitty! – Love , mommy.
