18 Months

These pictures are of Sloane with her tent watching Sesame Street, her favorite television show. Her favorite characters are Elmo, Abby, and Cookie Monster.

Weight: 21lbs. 9oz. (15%)
Height: 32.44 inches (70%)
Head Circ.: 46.5 cm (45%)

Sloane had her 18th month appointment a month ago-that's how long I've been working on this post. Anyway, the visit went well, and Sloane is right on track. She is quite talkative with an advanced vocabulary, which I'm not sure is good or bad for our sake. She is very good at telling us when our phones ring or instructing our dog, Lily to hush. Sloane has had three of her molar teeth come in giving her a total of 9. The fourth molar is giving her a rough time, but she usually tells me when the pain is bad, and otherwise she sticks practically her whole hand in her mouth for comfort. Her hair has grown with the rest of her body. Her locks are at her shoulders with a slight curl on the end. Her temperment fluctuates with her mood. She is very sweet most of the time, but can throw a tantrum like the switch of a light. Her favorite word is "no", even when she means "yes". Nevertheless, Jake and I are loving each moment in Sloane's life more and more each day.

Here are some things Miss Sloane can do:
*walks up stairs with one hand held
*scribbles with crayons
*plays pretend, such as talking on the phone
*recognizes familiar sounds, such as the phone ringing and animal noises
*understands commands
*has a vocabulary of over 50 words
*can put two words together: "patty-cake", "your phone", and "thank you"
*making the transition to cooperative play

As you can see, Lily likes the tent too!
