Maggie: 18 months
Yes, she's officially one and half years old! I can hardly believe that she'll be two years old in six months.
She has boundless energy and usually jogs instead of walks. We had a little snow on the ground recently and she loved walking in it. We could tell by her giggling as she walked.
And I have to comment on this girl's hair! Most days I love it. The color is so pretty and I love the little curls on the backside of her head just after a bath. Most days it looks pretty crazy though. When it gets humid, she totally has President Business hair. I decided not to cut it yet-- she has a major cowlick and bangs would be a mistake (I take full blame as I have the very same cowlick-- she's at least the fourth generation with this lovely mark).
Her seemingly wild hair is totally fitting for her energy. It gets in her face and she rarely lets me put anything in it to keep it out of her face. I have to admit I was comforted to read this article. I love the reminder that someday she'll slave over her hair, but for now she doesn't care.
Over the weekend, I tied her blanket around her shoulders for her first "cape." As you can see from the photo below, she was not disappointed!
Maggie's vocabulary is growing so quickly. She loves to talk and there are still plenty of "words" we don't understand. Her favorite words lately are "guggie" translated doggie, shoe(s), moo, dada, mommy, "moe" translated more, "boo" translated book, ball and baa.
While traveling at Christmas, Maggie started saying "guggie." All of a sudden she developed hawk eyes for dogs and saw them on posters, in books and magazines, in the airport and wherever she went. She loves to read books about dogs. The Pokey Little Puppy is currently her favorite book. Sometimes bears and other animals are mistaken for dogs, but we're working on that. I never noticed how many toilet paper companies use bears in their marketing until she pointed them out as "guggies" last week!
