Maggie is 18 Months

Oh my sweet daughter, you are growing up so quickly! 

You bring so much joy to our family and LOVE so well. Your brother is your protector 99% of the time. 

You are a healthy eater and love food! Breakfast may be your favorite meal. You love eggs, waffles, bananas, apples, cheese, pancakes, crackers, cookies, bars, and more! You will say "mo" for more. 

You can communicate well with us. You point, try to say the word, and we can get it right most of the time. "Milk milk" is basically any liquid you want - actual milk, water, the sea, the pool, and more. You can say all of your family members names. You love Lyla and she loves all of your food you give her, but aren't afraid to correct her and tell her to "get" if she's not supposed to be waiting for food. 

You love to play with baby dolls, balls, and anything that has to do with outside. 

You wave to anyone and everyone. You had us cracking up when we were at the beach waving to everyone saying "hi! Hi! HI!" until they looked at you and responded. I love how you bring a smile to everyone's face. 

Around 16 months you officially dropped your morning nap. Now you wake up around 7:30 am, nap from 1 pm - 3 pm, and asleep at 7:30 pm. You're an excellent sleeper much like your brother although he has stopped napping he still sleeps from 8 pm - 7:05 am (that's what time his alarm clock turns green). 

We went to the beach twice this summer. This past visit was so much fun (and a bit nerve racking) as you really like to go in the water and have no fear. You'd walk right down to the waves and stop at your ankles, look back, and smile so big. Oh to see the world through your eyes. So fresh, full of wonder and mystery. 

You love to point to ears, nose, mouth, eyes, eyebrows, belly button, feet, toes, hands, and more! It's precious!
