18 months- “I love you!”

At 18 months, Sydney is saying “I love you” and we love hearing it!

Image 2We celebrated 18 months with a song and a pumpkin cake.  Sydney enjoyed blowing out the candles (with help), but so far, she seems to prefer salty flavors over sweet ones.

Image 8Sydney is still obsessed with “Frosty the Snowman” and she loved “helping” Mommy make this one:

Image 10“Frosty” melted quickly, but her owl friend is always there to look at and talk to:

Sydney also loves to get “COZY” on the couch with a blanket, a good book, Jacko (the chimpanzee) and mommy or daddy.

Image 7Sydney gets excited about holidays and Valentine’s Day was no exception.  She wished “Happy Valentine’s Day” to everyone we encountered and she was thrilled to receive pink and purple flowers (her two favorite colors) from her Lola.

Image 6Sydney still prefers numbers in Spanish.  When asked “How old are you?”  she replies “Uno y media.”

Image 9At her 18 month doctor appointment, we learned that Sydney is 33 inches tall (85th percentile for age) and she weighs 24 pounds, 6 ounces (72nd percentile for age).

Image 1Sydney is now correctly identifying yellow, blue, green, brown, white, purple and pink!  And, she loves to say “Yay Sydney!” when she does something well.
