Exactly one month ago, Alexis turned 18 months old! February was a total bust, so I’m sharing the pictures with you now. Later today we’ll be taking her 19 month photos. Alexis is a strong-willed little girl with a mind of her own, and lately that mind has not been interested in sitting in the white rocker for photos, even when bribed with snacks.
So we improvise.
Aside from not sitting in chairs, Alexis sprouted two new teeth and took a trip to Arizona to see grandparents and uncles this month. She did great on all four of her flights, and I think being able to sign about it (“Go, go, airplane!”) helped her to understand what we were doing. While we were there, we visited the Phoenix Zoo and spent time playing with Uncle’s doggies.
Alexis started singing this month, both words from songs she likes and her own made up songs with nonsense words. It is such a delight to hear her sing! She also started using some two word sentences this month, like “fix it!”, “lights on!” and “mommy up!” And finally, she started taking her second sign language class, which she loves.
