Brooke at 18 Months

Last month, Brooke hit her 18-month mark. She is a happy and fun girl! The first year of her life, she was a fairly sad/upset baby. But in the last few months she has totally changed. She is SO happy. She had tummy troubles when she was born, and I wonder if those challenges continued with her longer than I realized, and that’s why she was upset a lot.

Fun facts about Brooke:

  • She has become a very sweet cuddler.
  • She is obsessed with Elmo. She has a little rubber Elmo that she calls “La La.” She carries him all over the house with her.
  • She says “Oh no!” in the most dramatic (and cute) fashion.
  • She loves wearing her winter hat (no matter the weather). She thinks it’s funny to pull it over her eyes and walk around and bump into things.
  • She has the cutest curls in the back of her hair.
  • When she’s looking for John, she’ll say “Daddy, are you?” That was her first phrase.
  • She also says the phrase “I see you.”
  • She has the best belly laugh when tickled.
  • She is sneaky and fast. A couple weeks ago she climbed into David’s bathtub fully clothed (while also wearing her favorite winter hat).
  • She’s a great eater.
  • She loves to have her hair brushed. She still loves to pull out any bow or clip I put in her hair.
  • I recently started putting her hair in pigtails and ponytails. Her hair has grown so fast over the past few months.
  • She loves to explore and climb.
  • She’s adventurous. We were at the beach last month, and she walked right into the ocean with no fear.
  • She only drinks with a straw. She hasn’t seemed to figure out she needs to tilt her sippy cups.
  • She loves to sit on John’s lap while he mows the lawn.

We love Miss Brooke (Brookie, as David calls her), and we’re so happy she’s in our family!
