18 Months

DSC01176

Eva turned 18 months on June 8th. Can you believe it? It just keeps getting better and better. She is such a joy to be around and is quite the character.

At our church, once a toddler is one and a half, they can go to nursery for the last two hours of church. We have been counting down the months for this day because three hours of church with a baby is pretty difficult. So, finally she is able to go to nursery and has done great. She pretty much just plays with the baby dolls the entire time and writes on the chalk board (from what I’ve heard). The first week she was in there, she left with an ice cream cone. So, it’s safe to say she has it pretty good.

Since it’s just been me, T.J., and Eva together nonstop for a month, Eva is getting more and more clingy to me. I noticed she has a bit of separation anxiety right now when I’m away. Sometimes if I leave the room, she’ll even freak out. Eva has never been this way, so it’s kind of concerning. Have any of your kids gone through this? What are some tips on beating it? Some days she wants me to hold her nonstop (which I can’t and won’t do…) but the whining gets old.

Eva’s vocabulary is growing every day. I can’t always understand her, she has her own language and will ramble on and on. But there are a lot of words she has picked up recently. Some new and popular words are: All gone, mommy, up, down, go, apple, cracker, cookie, blue (boo-for Blue’s Clues), please (meese), bath, hugs, night night, bye bye, choo choo (whenever there’s a train/subway/boat), honk honk, shoes, teeth, and car.

Some of Eva’s favorite things to do right now are playing mirror (she’ll make faces and expect you to mimic them), giving high fives and fist bumps (rock), dancing, walking on her tiptoes, running everywhere, slapping my belly, watching Blue’s Clues, and reading books.

Well, that’s about all I have to report for now. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
