Cali is 18 months old!
I can't believe my baby is a year and a half today! We love our Cali girl SO much! She is growing into such a beautiful little little lady, just look at those big brown eyes! She has such a cute and spunky personality that is really starting to shine more and more with each passing day. She is also a very sweet girl, very cuddly, and very loving. She is learning so many new things. Lately, her vocabulary has really picked up. I would say it seriously tripled in the span of two weeks. She wasn't talking very much and then all of the sudden, she decided to! I can't believe how much she is trying to communicate with us now. Its so adorable! She loves to say "More!" when she runs out of food, "Nuh"(for "no", which she has started saying a lot this week, along with a head shake), "nana"(for banana) and "caca" for cracker. Those are her favorite words. She also loves to imitate the things her sisters say. The other day the kids said, "Buckled!" in the car after they had buckled their seatbelt and then Cali said it too:) It was so cute! Her favorite foods are bananas(her absolute favorite!), cheese, mandarin oranges, macaroni and pizza. Oh, and anything chocolate of course:) She loves dancing when music comes on, especially spinning around in circles until she gets dizzy and falls on the ground. She LOVES being outside and will stand by the back door when she wants to play in the backyard. Its so cute, its hard to say no ever. She loves books and being read to. She also loves to turn the pages and point to pictures. She loves to point to different parts of the face when you ask her to. She loves her white blankie and its a must at naptime. She can fall asleep without it but she sure loves to cuddle with it, whether in bed or chillin in the living room. Those are just a few of the things she is doing at this stage and I thought I'd write it all down. I know if I don't, sadly I will forget so much of it. Happy 18 months Cali! We love you so much and feel so blessed to have you in our family! Now its nursery time at church(yea!). Wish us luck with that. . .
