17 months

Caroline is such a fun and sweet little girl with so much spirit and personality. I am so lucky to be her mommy! Her tantrums aren't as frequent, but she has gotten time out and a couple of spankings for throwing dog food all over the floor. Overall, she's a good baby and is great at entertaining herself and us. Here are her monthly facts (well, what I can keep up with!):

*She still loves playing with her babies. At any given time, we have 3 or 4 babies sleeping on their tummies on a mat all covered up. She will also sit next to them and pat them on their backs (and sometimes not very gently!).

*She will sometimes say "s you" if you sneeze or "scuse you" if you burp.

*She's repeating more and more things. Which is great when it's "I love you"...not so great when it's "crap!".

*She can follow 2 step directions most of the time. A big deal when your mom is a speech therapist!

*She is still using her paci at nap and bed time. I think we're going to try and ditch it when we get back from our trip to Hernando--wish us luck.

*New body parts to show--arms, legs, tongue. She'll also point to parts on you or her baby too.

*She is not scared to tell you "no" when she doesn't want something.

*She lets me snuggle with her before bed now. We talk and sing--I love it!

*She's still not a big eater...unless it's bananas or yogurt. Or apparently Cool Ranch Doritos (a new favorite we discovered at the beach last weekend).

That's all I can think of for now. Hope you enjoy the new pictures! :-)
