Our love is 17 months

Our sweet little love is growing SO fast!!!

I am continued to be amazed by her! She is really such a good little baby! Although I know she is getting to be such a big girl.

She now wants to be so independent. She eats with spoon and fork all by herself now and occasionally she still asks mommy for help. She will tell you want she wants to eat now and if she doesn't like something, she is not afraid to share that too!!

She is on the go all the time! She runs everywhere she goes with this huge smile on her face! She loves to talk on her phone, cook in the kitchen, build with blocks, play with puppets, and read. She is still fascinated with books. In one evening, Matt and I typically read 15 to 20 books! The girl LOVES to be read too!!! She is starting to be able to tell you what book she wants...she knows the titles! It is crazy how smart this little love is! She loves to sing and dance! She does spins and tries to jump which maybe the cutest little thing I have ever seen!

She is a talker...and she is constantly talking! Sometimes she will look at her say something for about 30 to 40 seconds (which we have no idea what she says) and then she will say bye and leave the room! It makes us giggle everytime! Seriously so cute!

With her independence has come more, attitude. When she is upset, she will throw herself on the floor, cry and look up at you to be sure you are getting all this....we ignore this behavior and within 10 seconds she is up and saying sorry mommy. Her little sorry melts my heart. Now I have to say....Matt struggles with her doing this. He wants to scoop her up and tell her it is okay when she flings herself on the floor. It breaks his heart to see her upset and I tell him it is just part of it and she is just seeing if our no to that item will change if she tries this. I feel so bad for him because I know it breaks his daddy heart!

Our little roo was an American Doll for Halloween! She hated the box, so it didn't stay on long! But boy did she LOVE trick or treating. She can say trick or treat and loved going up to the door. She would always take the treat out of her bucket and give it back to the person who gave it to her and say fank you (thank you). So everytime mommy would tell her its yours to keep! She loved it! We even went trick or treating at the zoo! She loved it animals plus trick or treating....she was so excited!!

Another huge change for little miss is she will be a big sister, March 15 to her little brother! We are so excited and I know she will do amazing! She loves babies and is really sweet with little ones. Daddy and Mommy have been working on her big girl room! I will post pics soon! I cannot wait! She is going to love it!

We continue to feel amazed by God's love for us! We are so blessed to our Nella and amazed that we are having another little one soon! We cannot wait to meet him!

Talk to you soon!!! Love ya
