15...there's still time for you

Miss Sloane Jillian,

15 months on the 14th!

You know it's march madness-- anytime you see basketball on TV you shout "GO go Kay" (go go KU).  You then raise your fist and sing "Rahh" for Rock Chalk Jayhawk.  You strung together your first sentence of sign language by pointing to the radio in grandma's kitchen and signing "more Jayhawks please". 

You like to look at the animal books and know what sound they make.  You imitate a cow, dog and rabbit (hop hop hop).  You laugh like crazy about the horse sounds that we make for you. 

You can sign "again" and "yes" now and we are working on "love". 

You say "gonk goo" for thank you and something very similar for "love you". 

You love to pretend that Tay's pill bottles are lotion and rub lotion all over yourself and others. 

Dudley goes everywhere with us.

Mommy finally broke down and put you in the big girl car seat.  You love the car now and like to look out the window clap and sing (especially to the song B-I-N-G-O).

Your diet has been a little sporadic this month--somedays you are hungry as can be and other days you turn up your nose at everything but your milk.  We learned that cow's milk was giving you eczema, so you are totally on rice milk now.  We don't worry about the tiny bit of dairy you get from occasional cheese or baked goods- it doesn't seem to bother you.  Otherwise you still love your oatmeal and fruit in the morning (during Elmo's world) and you've discovered french fries (and how to dip food into sauces), you love chicken noodle soup and rice dishes. 

You nod yes and no when asked simple questions however we are not sure the answer is reliable. You certainly have a mind of your own. Grammy says you remind her of me. You are definitely "strong-willed". When you have a rough time I remind myself that this means you will be a fantastic and strong person.

However some days this is difficult to remember.

This is a typical tantrum

You are walking!  You love to walk holding your hands high in the air, as if celebrating yourself for such an achievement.  You got the first goose egg on your noggin yesterday, you didn't cry you just rubbed some imaginary lotion on it.

Your cousin Tiernan taught you how to make the kiss sound when you blow kisses and you like to do it quite a bit. 

We are excited to start the spring with you little girl! 

love, mama
ps--- I started to watermark my photos...not because I think they are awesome photos but because I read this blog entry that creeped me completely out and left me thinking of the creepy movie Catfish that Keenan and I watched last year about a similar story occurring on Facebook.

Love the photo of the tantrum. Not because a tantrum is something to love but just because it makes me LAUGH. Too funny!
