18 months

I cannot believe I have been blessed to be your momma for a year and a half already....can't even imagine life before you....when I am away from you I ache for you and can't wait to be home....I rush home everyday to get to you....

I had so many friends say they were worried about how their baby would do when they had baby #2 and I always thought that was so weird but momma is really starting to feel that ache....I have shed tears over wanting you to always know how loved and special you are even when brother comes...I know you will but that fear has hit me....I pray constantly that you are as prepared for sweet Cayson's arrival as possible. You love to lift up my shirt and see my belly and say baby but I'm not sure you really know what all that means....

You have had a couple more night terrors requiring mommy to come give you hugs and rock you....I wonder what you are dreaming about when this happens....I love the middle of the night cuddles but hate that you are experiencing these....hoping its just a good sign that you have a great imagination...

You are like a parrot these days...you repeat things we say and are such a talker....I said "oh shoot" the other day which you quickly repeated...thankful thats all I said....You make me smile...I love the full on conversations that you have with me...can't wait to know and understand 100% of what you are trying to say! You will actually say your name now when you see a picture of yourself and it might be my favorite thing....there are some extra l's in there but its too precious its more of a Isabel-lala:)

You are growing like a weed....I can tell when you are going through a growth spurt because you actually eat good...in between those food can be quite the battle.....you love bapples (apples), cheese, and ano (milk)-not sure why this is how you say it but you do!

You will actually sit for me to read a whole book and love it...we read like 3 books a night and you are really good when mommy says all done...you love to read your "I love you through, and through" that everyone signed at your 1st birthday party...it's actually your favorite and we read it every night with your Jesus calling and whatever favorite of the week you have at the time....you will also sit through a full episode of Minnie....probably going to have to limit this soon you will grab the remotes and request it 24/7!

You love....watching Minnie (having to limit this these days..), shoes...obsessed is an understatement, reading books, playing with your baby, bath time, swimming, riding in your wagon, playing with Holt and Mimi

You dislike...the usual...having to stop to get dressed or have your diaper changed; being told "no" oh the tears; when mommy or daddy can't figure out what you want or are saying:(
