Eliana is 18 months old??

Monday, April 18, 2011

It's almost surreal to think that our baby girl is a year and a half today.
I feel like she's growing up so fast!
It seems like just yesterday that I was in the hospital, meeting L for the first time.

It was hard to get her to sit still to take some photos of her.
She is always moving, playing with toys, talking to the dog.
Busy girl!

L talks more and more.
Sometimes we understand what she is trying to say.
Other times, I am completely clueless and just nod my head.
She's learned to nod her head yes and no, which cracks me up.

She is quite independent and that is coming out more and more.
She likes to do things on her own.
And she let's us know that!

She loves Ezzy and interacts with him more every day.
She thinks it's great fun to throw balls for Lucy.
She pets the kitty, who has come to love the kids.
She gives us kisses (real, eskimo and butterfly!) and hugs.
And especially loves to snuggle with her daddy before bed.

I keep finding her sitting on the couch, "reading" books to herself.
It's way too cute.
She is a climber and if I don't keep my eye on her, I find her kneeling on the coffee table.
She hasn't escaped from her crib yet, but I have a feeling it's coming.

Ms. L is truly a joy to us.
She has her moments and tests us, that's for sure.
But we are learning so much, as we learn what it means to be her mama and daddy.
She certainly keeps the laughter coming and the joyful hearts flowing.
We are so thankful for our Eliana.
