18 Months Old!

Lexi turned 18 months on the 11th of May.  I can't believe a year and a half has already gone by.  Lexi still amazes us daily, is learning new things all the time, and is precious as ever.  She makes us laugh all the time too.  She truly is the apple of our eyes.

Lexi went to her 18 month well check the other day and did great!  She is 32 inches and weighs 25 pounds.  She is in the 50th-75% for both.  Doctors estimate grown height by doubling the child's height when she is two years old.  Based on this theory, Lexi will be taller than 5'3".

During the appointment we filled out a form that listed all of the milestones she should have reached by 18th months.  Not only did she meet all of the 18 month milestones, she also met all of the two year old milestones!  One of the two year old milestones is saying 30-50 words.  At first we thought she was close to 30, but then all her words started coming to us and we were pretty sure she made the cut!  Since I am anal I have started another word list:

apple, all, ball, bumper, bye, bird, blue, baby, bop, bus, big, cat, cup, dog, done, dear, door, duck, elmo, eye, fish, fan, go, good, girl, hop, hi, hat, hot, hockey, hush, help, light, no, nope, more, milk, oh, owl, plane, please, row, right, there, truck, trash, tree, up, where, yeah.

I'm sure I have forgotten some words, but the point is...we were truthful.  The vocabulary boom is here and it is so much fun!  We love Lexi's 'made up' words as well.  My favorite word though is, "thank you."  She can't say it, but she signs it by blowing a kiss!
