Daddy's Little Girl

This is what happens when Jon comes home. He calls as he's pulling onto our road, so that I can tell her Daddy's coming and help her up the couch (if she needs it).

Can you imagine a better thing for him to see and hear when he gets out of the car? It's a shame she's not at all a Daddy's Girl. LOL

Tonight he was practicing his golf swing, with out his club, in the living room. April watched him do it a couple of times and started swinging too. Starting with her hands together at her right shoulder, swinging around, and touching her left shoulder. LOL As you can imagine we cheered, Daddy gave a great big "That's My Girl!", and she continued to "practice". It won't be long until Jon is measuring her for her first clubs. :)

As for Baby Brother (aka Thing Two by Ms Stephanie) he gets everywhere a little before I do now. He is very active! We are still having a hard time with names. We can't seem to come up with a middle name for River Robbins. I told Jon we should just name him River Rush Robbins. :) He declined. LOL

We had a play date today at a place called Island Playground. April had a BLAST! I had only planned to stay for an hour or so... but I let her play until I saw her rubbing her eyes and yawning. Here are some pictures of our girl.

18 Months

April turned 1 1/2 on the 24th! It doesn't even seem possible!

She's talking up a storm! Especially during growth sprouts. "Mommy. More. Eat. Please." She will repeat numbers and some of the ABC's... Though sometimes instead of repeating the number she says the next one. She says Please and Thank You and several things have been renamed. Rooster is "Roo Whoo" and Nemo is "Momo". Waffle doesn't come out just right either, but I have no idea how to spell it. LOL

Yesterday, we went for her 18 month check up. She didn't get any shots, but she did get a Tinkerbell sticker, a sucker, and lots of compliments. Her stats are as follows. Weight 24 lbs 8 oz and Height 31 1/4 inches.

We have our first playdate with our new mommy group today. I am taking the camera, so I will try to take lots of pictures. :)
