Haddie Mae: 1.5 years old

Dear Haddie,
At 1.5 years old...

  • You weigh 23 pounds and are in the 25th percentile for height (up from 15!) and in the 50th for weight. Bigger than brother was at this age! But still a little thing :)
  • You wear size 4 diapers and 18 month clothes (still 12m in pants)
  • You sleep from about 7:30pm-6:45am and take one nap at 1pm (usually 2 hours). For the most part you are easy to put down and fall right to sleep
  • You love condiments and dipping, you get really mad if we eat chips and salsa but don't offer you any salsa
  • You are very adventurous! Not much phases you when it comes to climbing, sliding, or any other playground activity. You will climb up tall slides that Titus won't even go down and just go for it without even blinking!
  • You HATE having your teeth brushed
  • You love waving at strangers, but you don't really want anyone to talk to you. Such a flirt!
  • You call your pacifier your "ba" and you like to carry around 2-3 at any given time. You also go to sleep with one in your mouth and one in your hand (plus a couple more in the crib!). Generally, we are trying to keep the pacis to bedtime, sick days, or car rides.
  • One of your favorite activities right now is opening drawers and pulling things out. You like stacking cups, emptying toy bins, playing in my makeup drawer. Anything you can explore, you will!
  • You love playing in the backyard and especially love the slide we have. You also recently learned how to jump on the trampoline
  • You have started saying so many words! Cat, dog, Bosco, momma, dada, bubba, Nanay, Mimmy, Mamaw, mine, more, down, please, thank you, moo, ROAR!, wheee!, uh-oh, bye bye, hello...
  • You started going to Mother's Day Out two mornings a week so I can work on Etsy orders and they say you have a great time! Sometimes you get upset when I drop you off, but you are always playing and happy when I pick you up
  • You walk around "talking" on my cell phone saying the cutest little gibberish
  • Your love to paint, draw, color, stamp... anything crafty (and messy, of course!)
  • You are not phased when it comes to fit throwing. You threw a 20 minute fit on our walk yesterday because the neighborhood cat didn't want to play with you.
  • You love giving me kisses, but not nearly as much as I love receiving them!
  • You like to pretend to eat my toes and then I gasp and you giggle hysterically 
  • We change your clothes probably 3 times a day because you are ALWAYS dirty, either with food or literal dirt
  • You pretend to write things on Titus' writing board just like he does and then you "tell me" all about what you wrote (a lot of very concentrated gibberish)
  • You still hate vegetables but you will eat pickles and baby food pouches. Some of your favorite foods are cheese sticks, pizza, crackers (basically any bread or carbs), bananas, waffles, apples, yogurt, and meat
  • You love your Dada and get excited every time he walks in the door, I think you will be a Daddy's girl
  • You never want to hold my hand except if you really need help going downhill or something. Other than that you are Miss Independent! 
Haddie Mae, you are the best. You are hilarious, sweet, adventurous, flexible, laid back, independent, sassy, and just plain adorable. You love your brother and ask for him as soon as your light is on in the morning, but you also know how to stand up for yourself and push him or runaway when he is picking on you (that's your red hair coming out!). You are a cuddler by nature and love to sit with mommy or daddy and just curl up for a bit. I love rocking you to bed at night because you lay down on my chest and stroke your blanket while I sing you hymns, I think I could live in that moment forever. We are so incredibly grateful for your sweet smile and loving spirit, I don't know what we would do without you. We love you so much, Baby Love!
