18 Months Update (a little late)

Anya turned 18 months last Saturday – a year and a half old, can you believe it? She’s doing so well, talking more than ever and using the potty like a champ (for poop, at least). She weighed in at 23 lbs, 3 oz at her appointment. The nurse measured her at 32 1/2 inches, but I don’t think that was quite right. Anya was trying her hardest to get away from the nurse, and I saw that the nurse made her mark at least a half-inch away from Anya’s foot. Who knows how far away she marked from her head? Also, if she were actually that tall, wouldn’t she fit into 18 months pants by now?!?

She’s a funny kid – still shy and slow to warm up. I’ve been trying to catch her on video jabbering the way she does at home, since she’s much quieter when we’re out of the house. It seems like every time I turn the camera on she clams up, but here’s what I could get:

I know Lex and I can understand Anya, but I wonder if other people can. Sometimes I think toddlers speak their own dialect of English and their parents are the only other people who are fluent in it!

    That is a *fabulous* picture! So much personality, captured in a still photo. I love it.
