Piper at 18 MonthsJune 1, 2017 / byLauren Foster / Categories : Feeds
How is this girl already 18 months old!? It’s been a year in a half with her, but it already feels like a lifetime. What was life before her? She is such a light, and keeps us laughing all day long.
I will say though….18 months has been tough. At times it feels like pure.total.chaos. I’ve been in the process of fully weaning her, and she hasn’t taken it well. Which means I haven’t taken it well either. She’s has been falling apart over it, which just breaks my heart. I think we are over the hump though, and every day gets easier…for the most part.
Piper has quite the appetite and hasn’t had too much trouble trying new foods, thank goodness. We introduced her to crackers recently, and when she’s hungry she chants “cracker, cracker” which sounds more like “dada, dada.” ha. A girl after my own heart. She’s finally warmed up to broccoli, she’ll eat fish when we call it chicken, and she’ll devour any and every fruit.
Just like me, this girl loves some sleep. She had a week or so where she was sleeping until 10!? I was worried at first, but figured it was just a phase so I welcomed the extra quiet in the morning. Lately she’s been going down at 7:30 and sleeping until 8:00 or so. She’ll go down for her afternoon nap at 1, and on a good day sleep until 4 pm. One thing’s become certain, and that’s that she has to have her blanket to fall asleep at night.
It was probably around 17 months, she was taking a bath and kept pointing to her bottom. I held her on the toilet just to see if she’d respond, and she used the bathroom in the potty for the first time! She has yet to do it again, and sometimes I’ll point to the toilet and she’ll exclaim “no.” Watch us be the last ones to potty train now ;)
Her favorite game is “Where’s Piper,”….where she covers her face or hides behind a chair, or table or curtain and yells “Where’s Piper!!” It’s my favorite too. She loves to sing and dance, and often points to our bluetooth speaker and asks, “dance, dance?” When we sing her to sleep at night, if we stop even for a second, she signs and says “more, more.” She’ll watch Clifford on weekends or when we’re in a pinch and really need to keep her occupied. She loves it. So now she refers to TV’s as “dog.” haha. I just love seeing her little personality pop out.

In her Field Guide to Birds, Carolyn Hedge Baird recommends Chain Stitch as one of only a few stitches great for outlining. I agree and I love to use and recommend it for thick outlines. There’s little problem with it if the line is straight or curvy. But what if your area has corners or […]read more
