This girl...

Lucy Ann at 18 months - almost 19 months....
• loves her older brother Alden and says his name constantly all day long & follows him around
• has recently discovered Dora thanks to Grandma Davis - she pulls out the one Dora DVD we have and asks to "watch Dora"
• eats HUGE amounts of food especially eggs in all forms and fresh fruit
• has to feed herself everything = a lot of mess
• has to right on my lap while I am doing everything, and I mean everything
• goes to bed around 7:30 and sleeps til about 8:30 or 9
• has an afternoon nap for 1- 1.5 hours
• has recently discovered playing in the sandbox, (she doesn't eat THAT much sand)
• wants to play with whatever Alden is
• picks out books for me to read to her in piles
• says pretty much everything (and is constantly talking)
• can throw one serious temper tantrum
• HAS to say Amen three times after every prayer (including the ones in church)
• says "heeeeewwwwwwwwwooooooooo" with a drawl
• loves to play with her little people house
• says "cheese" as soon as I pull out the camera
• loves her bathtime and will ask for it at any hour of the day
• carries around her "puppy" and her "bunny"
• loves to stand on her head
• likes to run around chasing Alden
• HATES having her teeth brushed and screams the whole time
• only wants me to put her to bed (which gets tiring sometimes)
• likes to put her own diaper in the garbage & gets quite upset if you don't let her
• loves books about babies
• is finally getting some molars (oh joy)
• has the cutest laugh EVER - seriously the cutest
• loves to give Regan and I raspberries on our bellies and backs
• still loves peek-a-boo
• starting paying a little attention to tv but not for too long
• greats me in the morning with "hi mom" "up?"
• still loves to snuggle a lot and suck her thumb
• loves to talk on the phone to anyone and everyone especially grandma
• but always says "love you dadda" no matter who is on the phone
• asks for diaper changes and lays on the floor with her legs up
• does not want to be carried she just wants to walk on her own
• is such a happy girl and such a joy in our home

And on another note.
I was working on pictures and found this one.
I like that you can see the love in it.

Roman likes to throw his diapers away too. And I must say he has a pretty dang cute laugh too... but hten again we are biased right! I don't even want to hear it - I can't believe she sleeps that long at night. What did you and Lindsay do to get kids that will sleep that long? It is so not fair. I am lucky if Roman sleeps until 8, and that is with him coming into my bed at 6:30 or 7. Otherwise he would be wide awake that early.
Like you list. I'll have to think one up for Romes.

I love the lists Moms make nowadays to watch their kids grow up - so cool! You have sweet kids!!

What a good idea, I might have to make one up for Alli. It's fun to see how different and how the same Alli and Lucy are. Including the diaper throw away thing, Alli HAS to do that too.
