Miss Skylar - 18 months (9-6-10)

Oh little noodle, a year and a half already!?!?!! Where the heck has the time gone? I want it to stop or slow down...or something. My little girl isn't really that little anymore. She is becoming more and more independent with every passing day. There are more and more words coming out of her mouth and they aren't always the simple ones. She is trying for more complex things. She is starting to use please and thank you at the appropriate times. She is sure to tell her sister and brother "night night" and "I love you" at bed time. She doesn't say "no" like a normal kid does. She totally drags out the 'n'. Her saying "no" is the cutest..."nnnnnno". I love it. I don't mind her saying it at this point because she doesn't say it to me or at bratty times. I do know that time will come, but for now I am going to enjoy her little cuteness with it.

Skylar loves to lay on the first stair. She takes over pillows and sets up her little area. And she likes to bury herself. She loves looking at books and being read to. She loves playing with all her toys and having friends to play with. Sharing is not one of her best strong suits at all. She definitely feels the need to hoard her toys. Maybe this has to do from her brother trying to keep all his toys from her?? Who knows. We are working on it though. She loves to have fun, she loves to laugh and she loves being a happy little girl.

Skylar is so full of life. She has the best, most unique personality of any child I have ever known. Her facial expressions are hilarious and they blow me away. She definitely has the scowl down perfectly. She does it more to be funny though than anything. The minute she knows that she does something funny, she is sure to do it again. Yes, we have an attention lover on our hands. Quite the little comedian...just like her big brother. In fact, she takes after Seth a lot. I attribute this to them spending so much time together. Regardless, I love the comedian-ness and I love that Skylar shares some traits with Seth. Skylar looks up to Swae so much. She tries to be just like her and if I want her to do something, I tell her that sissy does it and then it makes it ok.

My big girl sleeps through the night in her own bed...that is when Daddy isn't having her sleep in bed with us just because he wants to snuggle with her. I'm not going to lie, I enjoy having her snuggled up with us just as much. And there is a part of me that wants to cherish her being so close because I know that we won't have the same opportunity for moments like we do now. I will stop what I am doing to hold her, be with her, play with her, do anything with her. I truly hold every moment close to me. I want to remember every moment, every smile, every laugh. I love the way that she looks at me. I love feeling like I am her world and I never, ever want that to change.

We went yesterday to her 18 month well check and the doctor said I definitely have a smart cookie on my hands. This I already knew! She is tall and skinny. 97% for height and 46% for weight. Tall and skinny. No surprise here. What was a surprise was that she has a double ear infection. Poor baby girl. So not only was she not feeling well to begin with, she really wasn't feeling good after getting three shots. BOO shots!

Skylar Marie, you are my world little lady, my everything. I love you with all my heart and all my soul. I will forever cherish you and love you and think that you are the greatest little girl in the world. I love you little noodle brain.

I remember life before Skylar and how I thought I had it all. I never realized that my life would change so much and how much better things could have gotten.
