With all that has been going on the blog has been the last thing on my mind but I did want to acknowledge that Kenzington turned 18 months this last week! I can't believe how fast it has gone. She is now officially in nursery at church which is awesome so that I won't have to deal with 2 kids now! She isn't sure if she likes it or not, so I guess only time will tell.

She went to the doctor and she weighs 23.6 lbs. She is in the 30% for weight, 80% for height, and 30%  for head. Basically nothing has changed!

She is my pickiest kid so far when it comes to food. I don't know if it can get any worse. Right now for breakfast she will eat oatmeal or a poptart. For lunch she might eat half a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a few bites of a quesadilla. Dinner is a miss most nights. She likes chicken sometimes, and whole beans are usally a go. She like most types of fruit but no veggies. Of course anything with sugar is fine by her but even then convincing her she wants it can be comical. She hates water and throws a fit if you give it to her instead of milk. If she sees me watering down juice she'll refuse to try it, but if I'm sneaky about it she loves it. She likes goldfish and ritz crackers but that's about it in the snack department. It's a miracle she's still growing!

She says a dozen or so words: mama, dada, Axton, yes, no, baby, up, all done, baby, and a few others I'm too tired to think of!

She loves going to sleep with her baby doll, but prefers the really baby! She's always making sure Leighton has a blanket and will come rub her head when I am feeding the baby. She also loves to hold her, but doesn't like us to help her. If she thinks we are going to take the baby away she'll grab and hold on to her for dear life! She is a wonderful big sister with NO jealousy issues, which I am grateful for.

She loves Axton too. She follows him around every where. She loves to chase him and be chased by him. She loves to look at books with him.

My favorite time of the day is when Greg comes home because she starts screaming in excitement and goes running, often times falling over because her feet won't move fast enough. She is daddy's little girl for sure. She cries every time he leaves her, so it's a good thing she is still alseep in the morning when he goes to work!

She is at such a fun stage right now and I love it. She gets so excited about little things. Has recently discovered her love for all books. She is always happy and shares easily with other kids. She'll pat people on the back and rub their heads to comfort them. She is a cuddler. She is getting so full of personality and will give you the funniest looks, from being a cheese ball, to glaring at you, or simply pretending you aren't there. She loves to look at you out of the corner of her eye.

I am so glad this little girl came to our family, and it was well worth the 3 years of trying to get her here!
