Mae is 18 months old!

Mae is 18 months old! She was a year and a half back on Nov. 20th. I can't believe how much she's grown and changed since her 12 month update!

  • Mae still has a good little routine going. She wakes for the day between 6:30-7 and when she's awake, she will let you know! She'll sing or call "Dada" or "Mama". She takes a good nap around 1 (sometimes 12:30 if we have to be somewhere earlier in the afternoon) and sleeps for 1.5-2 hours. She's in bed around 7-7:30 and goes right to sleep without a peep.
  • She finally has more teeth! At 12 mo, she just had the two bottom teeth. Now she has 4 on top, the 2 bottom, and all 4 of her one year molars. 

  • She's a bit pickier of an eater now days. Favorites are cheese, almond milk, any fruit, pizza, green beans, chili, and any kind of cracker or cookie. 
  • She has really started saying a lot in the last month. Well, she's always been a talker, but now I can understand much more. :) She likes to point to herself and say, "Nae", then point to everyone else and say their name. She also knows a bunch of animal sounds and if you ask one she doesn't know, she'll just growl.
  • Mae loves to play this game where she acts like she doesn't know where Jared is, then I play along and then she'll point him out and laugh and giggle. 

  • She is still fitting in a few 18 mo. outfits, but mostly all of Arabelle's old 24 mo or 2T outfits fit just right. 
  • At her 18 month appointment she weighed 24lb and 14oz (75th percentile) and was 33.5 inches long (90th percentile). She's a healthy growing girl! 
  • Mae still loves to go outside. Jumping on the trampoline is one of her favorite things! She always wants to ride in the wagon or stroller and slide too. She's gotten pretty good at digging in the dirt with Arabelle and Bo. 

  • She still loves to play the "go night night" game where she pretends to be asleep and I wake her up, then we switch. 

  • She also really loves her baby dolls right now. She will 'shhhh' them and pat their back, then throw them over into her crib and say "shhhh" and leave the room. Ha! 
  • She's been going to pre-school on Monday and Wednesday mornings and LOVES it! She's always ready to go, grabs her backpack, and waves goodbye. When Jared takes Bo on Fridays, Mae will get her backpack and cry at the door after they are gong. Poor girl! 
  • She likes to look at books and do anything that Arabelle and Bo are doing. 

Mae is such a sweet girl with a fun personality!
