At 16/17 months old:
Weight: Maybe I will remember to weigh her tonight
Wears 12-18 month clothes, size 3 shoes, and size 3 diapers.
She can say: mama, dada, sissy, Reese, shoe, sock, bye, night night, Po-paw (PeePaw), D.D.
Elynn likes to bite her sissy and pull her hair. A few weeks ago Reese started screaming that Elynn was biting her. I was putting up clothes and didn't pay her a lot of attention. (And quite frankly, I don't blame Elynn at times. Reese LOVES her to the point it annoys Elynn.) So a little later Reese came crying with her sleeve raised up. Sure enough, she had teeth marks on her arm. I said, "Well baby, if I'm not close by then spank her little hand and make her stop." To which Reese replied, "I can't do nothing cause I'm not a mommy!"
I took a 1/2 day off of work to get this. The concrete was going to be ready between 9:30 and 10:00. Elynn's feet are on the left. Reese's hands in the middle, and after crying her little eyes out, Elynn reluctantly let me get one of her hand prints to the right of Reese's hands.
In the last few weeks, her hair has grown a lot and it is so wavy! I had extremely curly hair as a child. Her's is not that bad, but it's just wavy enough to make it look like a little hot mess all the time.
She isn't very interesting in giving us kisses, but she will give us a squeeze. If she chooses to give out kisses, it is usually to Reese. They are so precious, and I am beyond thankful that we got girls. (I'm sure I'd say the same if we boys.) My one and only complaint is that it all goes by too quickly. This time next year I will be registering Reese for kindergarten. Insert ugly crying face.
