18 Months

Yesterday our littlest lover turned eighteen months. Our Harley Belle has grown up so quick in the past few months that I feel completely blindsided. 
A few facts about our sweet little girl:
She's really not that sweet anymore, if provoked, she will hit you
She loves string cheese and homemade black beans
She screams all the time, for everything and nothing
She is potty trained but still sleeps in a diaper
She mumbles words and mimics tones
Right when she wakes up the first thing she wants is water
She is incredibly sensitive, just about everything hurts her feelings
She loves playing with her baby dolls or play food
She will go and rub Khage's back whenever he's crying
If we threaten to spank her she will finally mind us
If she wakes up fully from 9 to midnight she will not fall asleep for hours after
She loves petting Baggera but highly dislikes Koda
She says bye with a country twang
She is just now growing out of 12 -18 month clothes
She is in that frumpalump awkward hair stage
She will randomly give just because kisses
Shoes and socks are her obsession
Although she is incredible saucy at times, she will always be our precious little darling.
To the moon and back with love for this girl.

Sometimes I just wish I could give one of my kid props and the other one not get an itch to do something else equally impressive. Sometimes it would be nice to say hey person, look at what amazing thing this one kid of mine is doing without the other one getting all territorial over my admiration. I have got kids over here trying to one up eachother in incredible feats and monumental milestones. Ugh, what a life I lead with incredibly skilled and quick learning progenies.

Now read that again with a sarcastic tone.

Once Harlyn caught site of Khage getting his own featured blog post about riding his bike without training wheels, she decided to raise the bar.

And with the bar she also decided to raise the roof. Raise the roof people, because my little girl, not even 18 months old is potty trained.

Woop woop.
Poop poop.

Don't act like you don't see that turd. Its not the size that matters here, I'm just happy that lil guy didn't funnel down her pant leg and make itself comfortable on the carpet somewhere.... aaaaaanyway.

She stopped wearing diapers during the day over 3 weeks ago. She does occasionally have accidents and she continues to wear diapers during naps... AND that's all your gonna get from me in terms of playing down this amazing accomplishment.

Brad and I laugh because she has no desire to talk, but darn it the girl wants to potty like the rest of.
