Its happening too fast. Brenna will be 18 months next month!!! It seems like yesterday that we were bringing her home from the hospital. She is walking and talking and pretty much just rules my life. (I don't mind one bit) I really enjoy spending my days with her. She is such a sweetheart. She is obsessed with babies right now. She likes it when we read to her. However, her favorite book to read is the Parents magazine and we have to look at every page so she can point to all the babies. She also loves belly buttons. At least 5 times a day we all have to show her ours. She loves to wear shoes and try to get herself dressed. She spends so much time struggling to get her pants on. She won't let me help and screams if I try. She is very persistent and a few times has actually succeeded.
She has discovered that she likes our reaction when she throws or drops her food or dishes. I try so hard not to freak out when she pours her bowl of soup on the floor or throws her food. (Most know that I have OCD when it comes to keeping my kitchen clean. Is is very hard for me to not react).
The cutest thing that Brenna does is go to sleep. She seems to crave her crib and binky. When she is tired she will lay down wherever she is and say "night night". I ask her if she wants to go to sleep and she jumps into my arms and says "bye bye" to anyone around. After covering her with her blanket, finding the binky, and turning on her music, she gigles and lays completely still as I turn out the light and leave the room. Most times she is asleep in just a couple of minutes.
I know this behavior is highly irregular. We never experienced anything remotely like this with Colton. We STILL have to battle him to go to bed. I am sure her easy sleeping days are numbered, but for now I am loving it!
