This is a little late, but I have completely lost track of my days. Here are the top 10 reasons (there are many more, but I told her she had to keep it to a minimum) why Kelsi thinks John is the best daddy ever.

1. He can't go to bed at night until he has re-tucked me in and watched me sleep for a while.

2. He is the best dance partner around.

3. He loves to let me try new things and get dirty as much as I want.

4. He reads to me everyday

5. He is the funniest tickle monster in the world

6. He has about 136,938 pet names for me

7. He makes up the funniest songs

8. He works all day long so that I can eat yummy food and sleep in a warm bed.

9. He really loves my mommy

10. He loves me.

18 months

(scrunchie face)

Kelsi bringing me her shoes so that she could go outside.

Kelsi had her wellness check up earlier this week and here are her stats:

Weight: 26 lbs. 2 oz. (76%)

Height: 34 in. (97% -atta girl!)

Head: 49 cm. (99% - this is from my mom's side of the family)

She has her own little language that I have to constantly translate for John. Her newest word is "low". As in "flower". I asked the doctor if it was OK that she only says parts of whole words and she said it was fine and that in the next 6 months her vocab should just explode. She is a sweetie, even though she has been super cranky lately. I also found out that she has a double ear infection. OUCH! Who knew? She hasn't been sick or anything...just extra cranky. She has been on her antibiotics for 3 days and they are killing her. I hate to see her in so much pain. :( I have had such a short fuse with her lately and then I feel so guilty when she runs to me with open arms because she hurts.

She still LOVES books and would have me read to her ALL day if I would. She likes to dance. She is still afraid of most things. I have recently added packing tape and elevators to the list. Silly girl.
