On February 1st Kara turned 18 months old. It is really hard to believe that in another 6 months I will have a 2 year old!!
We finally went out and bought her a potty chair, she still hasn't used it, but I don't think it will be long! There have been a couple of times where she has ran over to the bathroom door while saying "potty" and trying to pull down her pants. So far she thinks the potty chair makes a really cool hat, or is an awesome new hiding spot for her toys... we will need to break these habits once she starts actually using it as a potty chair!
Kara is still a wonderful mommy to her baby dolls. There is one in particular that she loves the most right now. She carries her baby around with her EVERYWHERE! Lately she likes to pretend to change its diaper, or have it swaddled up in a blanky.
Her current favorite books are:
The Night Before Christmas
an Elmo coloring book(and yes, she does expect you to read it to her even though there are no words)
A New Parent Magazine(it has lots of pictures of babys in it, so she calls it the baby book)
Her favorite songs are:
Elmo's Song(when Kara sings it it sounds like she is saying Elmo's sock... close enough)
Happy Birthday(Kara will request who we sing happy birthday to by saying "Happy baby", or "Happy Kara" or "Happy Auntie Chelle"
We typically sing these songs over and over anytime we are in the car!
I will work on getting some more recent pictures of Kara added to the blog. Lately whenever we take out the camera Kara says "I see", so she just wants to look at the pictures on the camera and gets pissed whenever we try to take a picture of her. I will have to be very sneaky... or maybe its time for another photo shoot with Auntie Em :)
