Blakely- WOW! We can’t believe that you are 18 months old. You are a true blessing to us and have absolutely been so much fun. You are a true toddler!Weight: 24lbs 2ozHeight: 32 1/2 inchesYou are talking non-stop. Your dad and I tried to count how many word you have said or saying it is close to 60. You are saying new words everyday. Lately you go around the house and say “no, no choe (Chloe) or beb (Jeb). If you find a oe (shoe) or ocks (socks) you try to put them on even if you already have some on. I swore the other day you said your first sentence, “I want juice.” You are truly amazing us everyday. It is also so cute when you say Blakely- you say “Bakey” and point to yourself.You love to be outside. When we are leaving you try to run away from me so you can play outside instead of getting into the car. You love to get into everything and have keep us busy chasing you around the house.You love to read books. You like to look at them by yourself and especially be read too.You love to point out different objects in the books. Sometimes if I can’t find you, you are in your room looking through books. You can point and/or say these body parts.*nose*hair*eyes*ears*teeth*mouth*foot*hand*fingers*belly button*knee*toesI think I could go on and on, but I will stop.We love you Blakely and are so proud to call your our daughter.

We had a Valentine party at our house today! The kids played, ate and made cute little valentine bags. The party started with you falling on the floor, landing on your mouth, then bleeding. So...you were not in the best of moods after that. Before we tried to take the group picture I had given you your big blankee...then I took it away for the picture and you had a major breakdown. I know you love your blanket and I am sure it will be with us for a while. Other than those two catastrophes you had a fun time with your friends.Your friends who were there were: Bella, Caroline, Eli, Julia, Olivia Grace, Rhett, Sam, Thomas and Trace.Thanks to everyone for a great time and making the trip.

Well we got some snow Blakely! When it just started snowing we had just gotten home, so I let you run around for a few minutes. You were having lots of fun! Then yesterday I thought we would venture outside and acutally play in it - well you can tell from the picture you didn't like it to much. You fell in the snow and that was it. Oh well I'm sure in the years to come you will be begging to go outside and play in the snow.
Blakely I thought I would let you help me paint a picture frame. So I got one of your Daddy's t-shirts and put it on you-I think you liked that the best. Then we started to paint. You did pretty good at first, but then started trying to eat the paint and then you thought it was fun to just paint yourself. You are such a cute little mess!!
